9 of us drove to eat at Korean BBQ, in Korea town, that took us about 10 min or so to arrive to. If your in such a large group I suggest breaking it up in two to be seated much faster, also read rules as restuarant we sat at charged for meat left over by the pound? We also ended choosing the 9.99 menue each and somehow ended up paying a $20 gratuity fee, that unless it was written in Korean we did not know about prior, nor told about. This turned out to be less than what we normally would have tipped., hidden fees are just not fun.

Madeleine is wonderful and charming. But I'm afraid the choice of venue is rather odd for her. She is a lounge-type of an artist and the large auditorium was just making it hard for her to connect to the crowd.

The music was amazing! But Madeleine was very critical of the audience. She was not satisfied, it seemed, with the cheering and audience responses. I'm not quite sure what she wanted. Hers is not exactly dance music. Still, despite her...continued

I think the show and Madeleine were wonderful. I didn't feel heckled at all by her, but I think she wasn't comfortable with the theater venue. A closer up front feeling is how I've seen her in the past. There was some issue in the very beginning...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“[2009’s] Bare Bones [is] a work of high class, deep feeling and, let’s not forget, magical singing.” —The Guardian (London)
“Peyroux’s voice… still sounds eerily like Billie Holiday’s… her instrumentalists put on a master class in how to accompany a singer.” —Boston Globe

Description

French-American jazz songstress Madeleine Peyroux makes her Luckman debut with her full arsenal of delicately sultry compositions and renditions. With hits such as “Careless Love” and “Don’t Wait Too Long,” Madeleine Peyroux has earned her spot amongst jazz/blues divas such as Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald – artists to whom she is often compared. With a warm, perfect blend of melancholy and carefree ingrained in her music, Ms. Peyroux’s voice is as chillingly vivid as it is a powerhouse of emotion.
