My husband and I used to go to this place when it was a movie theater and this was our first time here since the remodeling. We like the changes. It is now a classy supper club with good food. Freddy Cole's quartet put on an entertaining show. We...continued

Description

December 20, 2013 at 8:30pm: Holiday Tango Concert With Roberto Pomili Orchestra

Roberto Pomili, composer and international musician, is considered one of the best tango double bass players and composers of his generation. Musical reviews have said that Pomili deserves not only to be heard but seen playing to fully understand and appreciate his authentic identification in Tango music. Since 1995 he has had the pleasure of performing in some of the most important concert halls in the world. His last CD “concerTango recordando a Piazzolla”, which is a tribute to the famous Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, sold over 10,000 copies in the USA. Pomili will conduct his orchestra with Raul Jaurena, master of the Tango who is among today’s most prominent bandoneon players, Marga Mitchell singer, Katya Merezhinsky & Carlos Guttierrez dancers and during the concert they will record a live CD. Presenter Sharan Kaur.

*December 28, 2013 at 8:00pm: Freddy Cole’s Christmas Show

  • Freddy Cole, brother Nat “King” Cole, will stir up memories that will never be forgotten. Now in his 55th year of performing, this great singer and pianist has developed a huge following of his own. The instantly recognizable Cole voice and a veteran quartet, play the classics as well as new compositions and interpretations from a huge repertoire. Cole doesn’t apologize for sounding like his legendary brother. He plays piano and sings, and performs live with guitar and upright bass, just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday and his timing swings a little more. His vocals — suave, elegant, formidable and articulate — are highly respected.
