Dennis McNeilDENNIS MCNEIL,  
an award-winning tenor known for his versatility as a performer, is equally happy on the Broadway stage, the Opera stage, in front of a symphony as a soloist, or singing Irish Folk Music. He has performed with many of the major opera companies in the U.S. including the Met, New York City Opera, San Francisco Opera, New Orleans Opera, and Los Angeles Opera. On the Musical Theater stage he has sung the role of Mr. Snow in Carousel more than 140 times in four productions. He had the honor of singing Nikos to Broadway legend, John Raitt's Zorba. He also sang in a national tour with lyricist, Sammy Cahn in the smash hit musical Words and Music! and has toured and performed with legendary composer and conductor, Lalo Schifrin.
 
"This crooning tenor had the room swinging, especially with the support provided by Musical Director Ed Martel. He skillfully wove his impressive career into an entertaining evening of story and song. With a voice that is a pleasure to listen to and a wealth of show biz stories to draw upon, McNeil is primed to become a cabaret staple."  - Les Traub, Cabaret Scenes Magazine
 
"Judging from the audience response, he was a smash. The diners gave him a standing ovation. You couldn't help but be swept away by his powerful voice."  -Robert Machray, Blog Critics
 
" With the unfailing confidence that marks a true Irishman and with just enough humility to ingratiate himself, McNeil held his audience spellbound with his magnificent vocal range, wide variety of selections and warm anecdotes. He is a fabulous singer and entertainer, and let's hope this is the beginning of many, many supper club appearances. His desire to spread love and joy to new audiences is coming true."  - Don Grigware, Broadway World

Keri KelseyKERI KELSEY
 is a woman with, to put it mildly, an eclectic background. Her life experiences are as diverse as traveling with the circus, riding a tiger bareback, assisting a juggler, working as an on-the-spot radio news reporter and a literary agent, signing for the deaf, and swinging 35 feet in the air from a float in the Rose Bowl Parade! (not easy for someone afraid of heights... she found, however, that fear is calmed somewhat when a paycheck is involved...)
 
She has performed her cabaret show at Feinstein's Cinegrill, The Gardenia, Danny's in New York and various other cities across the country.  She's headlined at Tavern On The Green and Hofstra University.  Keri currently hosts the longest running open mic in Los Angeles at The Gardenia. Known as the "Queen Of Patter" she teaches a class called The Complete Cabaret Workshop with Todd Schroeder.
 
Keri draws inspiration from all these experiences for her personal and compelling performances, while earning a reputation for being, as one reviewer recently put it, "the definition of glamour." She counts among her musical inspirations Julie Wilson, Ann Hampton Callaway and Nancy Wilson.
 
 
Mary BogueMARY BOGUE's first memory of music traces back to her family's upstate New York home. When her family moved to California, Mary was all about this stuff called jazz, R&B and Motown. And while Paul McCartney was okay in her books, he didn't compare to Smokey Robinson.
 
Mary began singing around the L.A. scene in 2006 or 2007 doing many shows at local venues including. Nola's, Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, and Vitello's. She's no stranger to film, TV work or art exhibits, either.  
 
Fast forward to 2012 and her debut CD, "Don't Go To Strangers" which delivers her unrequited passion, with killer arrangements played by L.A. pianists Karen Hernandez and Steve Rawlins. Trumpets beckon at the call of Nolan Shaheed, Rickey Woodard makes for a cool  groove; and viola and cello voices assure you it's okay to stay a little longer in your reflection of yesterday, before producer Steve Rawlins moves you on down the road.
 
Mary recently performed her latest show, "My Friends Call Me Rosie" - a tribute to Rosemary Clooney," at The Gardenia in Los Angeles to sold-out crowds and great reviews.

Mary Bogue! She doesn't have a SHOW, she throws a PARTY!  And this is no exception.  Mary brought down the house at her CD Release Party when she closed with "Sugar On The Floor," the mega hit of the late Etta James. KJAZZ Radio Program Host , Bubba Jackson asked me to please include this song, and did she ever.  You'll learn first hand what it means to be a woman with a heart like a five pound sack of sugar!

The killer jazz vocalese trio, Chambers, Herbert & Ellis are opening for Mary, with their classic style reminiscent of the great Lambert, Henricks and Ross. And if you haven't seen them, feel free to drop in the first Wednesday of the month at The Gardenia in Hollywood.  Wow, wow and wow again! Grown children of famous jazz fathers, these "kids" (hah) will blow your socks right on off.

Al Timms, the "Duke of Smooth" joins Mary in their duet off the CD, Don't Go To Strangers, with their attention to "Black Coffee/Heartbreak Hotel."  Al is sure to please with his warm tones on his own and will do so, but wait until you hear the new duet he and Mary have in store!  

You don't want to miss this rockin' good time, so come on out. But make your reservations soon. It's bound to sell out!  Oh yeah! Just the band alone is an ALL STAR TRIO,  as heard on the CD, Karen Hernandez on keys, Lou Shoch on bass guitar and keeping time is Jack Le Compte on drums!  Add a featured saxophone in the hands of Jay Murray (Murray Middleman) and a SECRET JAZZ ICON GUEST, and well....hold on to your panties. The party is starting!

See you there!
