Come to the Cabaret

You may not see Liza but there will be DK and Denzal, Heather and John to name a few. Thanks to  a hot tip from my theatre and jazz junkie friend and Soulpepper volunteer Judy Wineberg, I know that the Young Centre at the Distillery is introducing a Cabaret series on Saturdays at 10 p.m.

Located in the intimately created Kevin and Roger Garland Cabaret Theatre it features some of the best performers around for a mere $15 - $10 if you have seen one of the much lauded Soulpepper Productions that same day.......a steal! Plus there is a licensed bar. Having been to the Cabaret series in the fall I know this is a wonderfully cozy setting - perfect for enjoying the music.

Here are a few teasers:  delightful redhead Miranda Mulholland - vocalist and violinist tonight, the towering, powerful and caramel vocals of DK Ibomeka on May 22nd, artiste Patricia O'Callaghan on June 5, divine Denzal on June 12, Chris Whitely and Diana Braithwaite with some blues on June 26, the debonair John Alcorn on July 17th and Jazz FM's own charmer Heather Bambrick on July 26th...whew....

 The Distillery is also a great area for atmosphere, great food and restaurants, shopping (like Distill for jewellery), soul satisfying coffee at Balzac's and heavenly chocolate from Soma....

Jazz fans two events I know of this evening: Margot Roi holds court at Ten Feet Tall on the Danforth this evening and Jim Gelcer Trio at the Old Mill - around 7:30 - Justin Gray is on bass I understand so I will try and make it there after community garden clean up...
