Chaise Lounge Performs at the Cabaret!
WHEN: Sunday, November 13, at 7:30 PM

Chaise Lounge performs a blend of music that sounds like it was recorded at Capitol Recording Studios in 1962 and somehow found its way to today's pop charts. "[Charlie] Barnett and [Marilyn] Older write excellent songs. The material is smart, funny, tough, and not afraid of emotions...Older is an appealing singer. She blends cockiness and a wisecracking attitude with confessional sensitivity." —Raymond Tuttle, Fanfare Magazine Nov./Dec.2009.

The other members of Chaise Lounge are Gary Gregg (tenor sax, clarinet, flute), John Jensen (trombone, trumpet), Pete Ostle (bass), and Tommy Barrick (drums).  

An Evening With Sandy & Richard Riccardi
WHEN:
Sunday, November 13, at 7:30 PM

Laughter is the best medicine, but we aren't completely discounting Vicodin, Viagra, or Xanax. Because those don't completely suck.
Sandy & Richard Riccardi (known to millions of YouTube viewers as "Hockey Mama For Obama and the pianistic Moose") are here to make you scream with laughter at their all-original, all-comedy musical show, describing their cracked and bush-whacked road to marital bliss and social consciousness.

Their unique juxtaposition of modern, techno-socio-relevant lyrics and tune-smithy jazz piano arrangements will charm your socks off. If that doesn't, then the Justin Bieber references and the strip tease will.

Songs include Adelaide's Health Care Lament, The Higher The Hair, The Closer To God!, I've Got It Good And That's So Bad, But I'm The One Who's Happy and their 1.5-million-hits-and-counting YOUTUBE sensation: Don't Speak For Me, Sarah Palin.

Show directed and designed by Paul Gilger.
