Andrea has appeared in Broadway shows, on Las Vegas stages, on television; she was even the audience warm-up girl for the "Ed Sullivan Show" in the late 1960s! Andrea Bell Wolff has been in real show biz for the past 50 years! While Ms. Wolff stands at a diminutive 4'-11," she has a soaring professional career which began at age 17 and never stopped until she received the role of a lifetime - wife and mother. Her countless credits include her performing on stage, on television, and in Las Vegas • appearing in the renowned Bottoms up Revue at Caesars Palace. Her theatre credits include a record-setting number of performances as Ermengarde and Minnie Fay in Hello Dolly!, (Broadway and National Tours) where she worked with Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, Dorothy Lamour, Betty Grable and Phyllis Diller.

Now, Reid reprises the Bistro Award-winning show in a staging that continues to draw on his multi-faceted skills as an actor-dancer-singer. The show's band consists of music director Lawrence Yurman on piano, Damien Bassman on percussion, Ray Kilday on bass, and Trevor Neumann on trumpet. Reid, a veteran of several Broadway musicals, has emerged as one of New York's most captivating male vocalists. Reid received the 2012 MAC Award for cabaret debut, and the 2013 Bistro Award for Theme Show ("Drop Me Off in Harlem's premiere) while making a string of high-profile appearances at Feinstein's, 54 Below and Dizzy's.

NYC: MOUTHS OF BABES AT THE DUPLEX

A tender tomboy and rough-and-tumble lady come together to melt hearts and shake souls with undeniable chemistry and a truly unexpected heralding of wisdom at THE DUPLEX CABARET THEATRE (61 Christopher Street, NYC - 212-255-5438) in "Mouths of Babes" on Sunday, April 19th at 5:00 pm. The show is equal parts celebration and blues, folk and soul, salve and anthem - an invitation to love this life, to sing your sob story and end it with a smile. These two songwriters light up the stage - juggling harmonies, guitar, bass, foot percussion, cajon, banjo, harmonica, and ukulele from song to song, inviting the audience to join the choir, and engaging listeners with sentiments that range from heartfelt to hilarious. In her twelve years with popular folk-pop quartet Girlyman, Ty Greenstein established herself as a prolific songwriter and gifted lyricist, a talented multi-instrumentalist, and a magnetic presence onstage. Over the course of seven years with sultry roots trio Coyote Grace, Ingrid Elizabeth played the upright bass, wrote and sang, commanding audiences with her larger-than-life sassiness and professional dancer's grace. The new material from Mouths of Babes finds Ty's heartfelt songs being lifted up by Ingrid's infectious irreverence, while Ingrid's songs dig for a deep taproot of universality a la Ty's literate leanings. Call for cover/minimum information.

CABARET EVENTS IN LONDON FOR THIS DATE



LONDON: KIT AND MCCONNEL AT THE CRAZY COQS

Kit and McConnel return to THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888) on Sunday, April 19th at 7:00 pm with 'Over The Yardarm', with their unique blend of wit and sophistication. Presenting freshly-baked songs and the heady aroma of topical irreverence, Sunday nights (and Monday mornings) will never feel quite the same again! Never afraid to push the jokes, Kit and McConnel poke fun at everyday events and modern cultural happenings, whilst also including some serious numbers in their act. No two shows for Kit and McConnel are ever the same. After a wealth of experience these two men certainly know how to make an audience crease up with laughter and are a truly enjoyable pair to watch. Kit and James are old friends and collaborators. In 2011 they teamed up to become Kit and McConnel and went on to sell out shows all over the UK. Call for cover/minimum information.

Please remember, if you have a cabaret event coming up, to send in your press release to me at stuhamstra@svhamstra.com - do not assume the venue will do it for you. Some venues send it items just a few days before show date, and skip some shows completely. And please do not rely on an announcement on FaceBook to be received by all on your "friends" list. Send your release by e-mail, directly. If your release is complete & appropriate and received at least a week before your event, and it will be published on the website. Releases fron advertisers and members are posted first. To see the type of press release information I am looking for CLICK HERE
