The first staging of this exotic and exciting show since 2011, the Triple Door will soon find itself filled with a colorful kaleidoscope of choreographed dances, sexy burlesque performances and impressive live music featuring what The Examiner described as "powerful, mind-blowing vocals ... the band alone is worth the price of admission."

Musical colleagues Barbara Higbie and Peppino D'Agostino offer a multifaceted evening of music celebrating the winter solstice. Barbara—a Grammy-nominated composer, multi-instrumentalist, and singer—and Peppino—a virtuoso acoustic guitarist, composer, and singer—join forces for a performance that features solo and duo sets ranging from originals to what Barbara describes as "musette pieces, some acoustic funk, a splash of classical, Italian, Irish, and African, but mostly our own unique music played in a warm, interactive manner."
Higbie's music combines technical brilliance and joie de vivre. Her eclectic background includes classical piano and violin studies, immersion in the musical culture of Ghana, and groundbreaking work with the jazz-folk-bluegrass band Montreux and with Terry Riley. Her compositions combine jazz, folk, classical, African, Brazilian, and Celtic elements to create music that is lyrical, rhythmically playful, and harmonically inventive.
A native of Italy, D'Agostino combines technical prowess with the rich lyricism and passion of his Mediterranean heritage. His compositions, marked by dynamic rhythms, constant changes in tuning, and evocative melodies, highlight his distinctive method of playing. Peppino, who won Guitar Player magazine's 2007 Reader's Choice award for Best Acoustic Guitarist, now resides in the Bay Area.
