Enjoy Stacy Kendro along with host Dave Hornfischer and our PG13 miquers doing all things comedic

Stacy Kendo's comedy has been called funny, irreverent, gracious, and even cutting as she has performed the comedy circuit including cruises, Las Vegas, and the Boston scene. So avoid the cost of travel to these expensive places, and check out this veteran comedienne as she brings her unique humor to our monthly show.

One reviewer said this of Stacy, " She is a fun, irreverent comic with a bad attitude that is cunning, yet gracious, and above all, funny."

Cabaret Open Mic - Feature: Dianne Legro; Pianist: Tom LaMark; Guest host: Kevin Luey

Dianne Legro's musical background gives her a unique place in Cabaret. Trained classically and mentored by vocal icons such as Renata Tebaldi, Carlo Bergonzi and Jan DeGaetani, she went on to train with the leading performers working in cabaret today. Julie Wilson, Margaret Whiting, and Craig Carnelia are among the many master teachers she worked with as a Cabaret Fellow at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center. With a deep love of both styles Dianne is grateful for the musical insights both worlds offer.

Jazz Show & Jam hosted by Ted Knowlton, keyboards

"Our group starts with bass, drums, and piano. Ken Steiner & I (Ted) have been around longer than the other Jazz Jam musicians. We are probably not as "out of the box" (that's Michael's favorite term) as some of the younger musicians hosting the Jam, but we bring a wealth of jazz experience to the party." And, we love "out of the box" folks to jam with. Give us your freedom of expression; we give you a solid base of jazz experience. You draw us out; we draw you out!
