Quotes & Highlights

“Impressive vocal gymnastics, a lighthearted sense of humor, and a brisk sense of swing.” -Los Angeles Times


September 11: JULIE DAY. The LA Jazz Scene cover girl and vocal jazz prodigy — she’s only 21 — opens the season. The LA TIMES says that Ms. Day has “the vibe, the enthusiasm, and the sheer irresistibility of a star in the making.” All proceeds from this show will be donated to The 9/11 Relief Worker’s Fund, in memory of our fallen countrymen.

September 18: ABE LAGRIMAS, JR. Is there anything he can’t do? One of Hawaii’s most revered musicians, Abe is a virtuoso on vibraphone, drums, and ukulele. He will demonstrate his mastery of all three instruments with the Tasty Band. A rare LA-appearance for a young man who is blowing minds all around the world.

September 25: ELAINE MILES. Sultry, sexy, and sublime, Ms. Miles is best known as the “front man” for Jeff Goldblum’s Mildred Snitzer Orchestra and a favorite of A-list Southland musicians.

October 2: JOANNE TATHAM. You’ve heard her on movie soundtracks and in the finest nightclub venues in America. Now she makes her Catalina Bar & Grill debut. The Washington Post says Joanne Tatham “has an exceptionally fine voice reminiscent of the great pop balladeers of the late 50’s and early 60’s, but with an intensity and shimmering vibrato all its own.”

October 9: BARBARA MORRISON. The Queen of LA Jazz and Blues returns to Tasty Tuesdays from her latest world tour. With 9 critically acclaimed albums to her credit, she’s a great singer and an equally great entertainer. Barbara Morrison is one of our most beloved performers, hailed internationally as the heir to Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington.

October 16: JOE CROYLE. Blessed with a voice of uncommon purity, Joe Croyle’s singing is pure silk. One of the harmonizing Modernaires, Croyle presents his swinging tribute to the Velvet Fog, Mel Torme.

October 23: RICHARD WINZELER. Former Vegas musical director Richard Winzeler is a brilliant composer, whose songs have been recorded by Lou Rawls, Gladys Knight, and Dianne Schuur. He’s also a brilliant singer, and both his writing and performing talents will be on display at his Tasty Tuesdays debut.

October 30: JANICE HARRINGTON. Lured by headlining status at international music festivals around the continent, more than a decade ago former Angeleno Janice Harrington moved to Europe, where she established herself as the top blues and gospel singer in Germany. Tonight she makes her triumphant return to Hollywood.

November 11 (a special Sunday edition of Tasty Tuesdays): LINDA HOPKINS. Back by popular demand, the living legend of the blues, Tony-winner Linda “the Kid” Hopkins celebrates her 83rd birthday onstage with the Tasty Band, which supported Linda on her critically acclaimed live record album. An honoree of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Linda Hopkins is still putting whitecaps on the beer.

November 13: MARK WINKLER. Singer, composer, and showman Mark Winkler returns to Tasty Tuesdays, where, at his last appearance, the LA TIMES said, “Winkler stands out among what appears to be a diminishing fraternity: male jazz singers.” A class act.

November 20: ELI BRUEGGEMANN. Known as the dashing pianist of the Tasty Band, Eli is also a renowned composer. But only a few music fans know his secret talent: He’s a fine singer, too. Mr. Brueggemann steps out from the piano bench and takes center stage in a historic evening at Tasty Tuesdays.

November 27: CHERYL BARNES. Closing the 2007 season, the soulful and swinging Cheryl Barnes brings her big voice and inventive approach to well-loved songs. A former soloist with the Florida and Denver Symphonies, Ms. Barnes has performed extensively in South America, where she’s nurtured her love for samba, bossa, and other Latin grooves. Expect a little of everything on our gala Closing Night.
