About the Event

Join us as we highlight familiar favorites and rare gems from the Great American Songbook, peppered with saucy musical theater numbers both vintage and new. We’ve got a story for each lovely tune, so sit back, stay awhile and let us surprise you!

About Shannon Wolfe:

With a voice that shimmers, Ms. Wolfe combines a vintage sound with classic material to a thrilling effect. She is creator of Femme Fatale: A Film Noir Cabaret, and one-half of the comedic duo, Sophisticated Ladies, whose harmonically rich shows feature ballads, boogies and heart-melting harmonies from Tin Pan Alley in the style of the Andrews Sisters and Art Deco era. Shannon has been a regular performer at San Francisco’s Society Cabaret, the Rite Spot, and was most recently seen in "Tunes of the City: A San Francisco Song Cycle", premiered at Potrero Stage. Shannon is a featured yearly seasonal performer at The Water’s Edge Bistro in Mazatlan, Mexico.

John recently released his second album on Avie Records, “Rachmaninoff • Gershwin: Transcriptions by Earl Wild,” a follow-up to his first award-winning album, “Upon Further Reflection”, which featured the premiere of MTT’s three-movement suite for piano. No stranger to the stars, he has accompanied Bernadette Peters and Audra McDonald.
