THE GIFT OF THE VAGI

THE GIFT OF THE VAGI

Kathryn Allyn, vocalist and storyteller
Frank Ponzio, piano
Hayes Greenfield, sax

A tale of woe & naughty bits, The Gift of the Vagi is an, um, deeply moving story of poor choices; a sexy thief, a flummoxed banker, an irritated policeman and financial catastrophe. Tragedy + Time = Comedy, so join us for laughs, cocktails, and sparkling arrangements of the songs of Berlin, the Bros. Gershwin, Porter, Coleman, Dorough, Willie, JT, Randy, Zeff & more. Because bad decisions make good stories.

When Harry Met The Duke

Rosemary Loar, vocals
Frank Ponzio-piano/music direction
Waldron Ricks- muted trumpet

For tickets www.donttellmamanyc.com/shows  or 

212-757-0788  after 4 PM daily.

"The show is well written, tightly paced, interesting, inquisitive, and enjoyable. Rosemary Loar is not only a formidable vocalist, but communicates with her audience, showing an openness one rarely observes. Arrangements are top notch, musicianship skilled and symbiotic."   Cabaret Scenes

When Harry Met The Duke highlights the musical similarities these two geniuses shared. Born six years apart, both Harold Arlen and Duke Ellington were the sons of musicians and both began playing with a band while still only teenagers. These two men changed the course of American popular music, with influence that reached into jazz, nightclubs, musical theatre and film, and are pivotal figures of The American Songbook.

Eleanor Dubinsky has found the tender edge where jazz, Lusophone, and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. She suggests we all work to "Turn It Around," the first single from her upcoming album Soft Spot of My Heart. Eleanor's work embraces sounds from the USA, Cape Verde, and Brazil, thanks to her multifaceted band. To underline her uplifting message, she is expanding her performance to welcome the powerful joy of Brooklyn based contemporary gospel ensemble Greg Stamper Stamper & Soul21, who also make a noteworthy appearance on her new record.

Please join us for this fantastic show so we can celebrate this milestone together!

*Co-written with pianist and composer Frank Ponzio, Turn It Around is an uplifting tribute to the spring that comes after a long winter, literally and spiritually.
