Cabaret Open Mic Feature: Mary Catherine Ward; Pianist: Tom LaMark; Host: Leslie Holmes

Growing up in a large Irish-Catholic family sounds fun...it was hiliarious, but at times, quite challenging. As the eldest of eleven children, Mary Catherine Ward had to be a pioneer in testing the waters, and breaking boundaries for her siblings by rebelling against their devout Roman Catholic Mother... which is probably why she became a Family Therapist by day, who escapes as a Cabaret singer by weekend, and continues to press the need for family self-relfection and self-preservation.

Jazz Show & Jam hosted by Ted Knowlton, keyboards w/Ken Steiner, bass; Michelle Tannen, drums

"Our group starts with bass, drums, and piano. Ken & 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! www.tedknowlton.com
