Singer/songwriter/ entertainer Rose Bonanza will be appearing for one show only at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) on Sunday, November 4th at 4:00 pm.

Ms. Bonanza's signature voice and electrifying, yet whimsical style has been sending audiences away raving since the 1960s when she was one of the top lounge acts in Las Vegas. Brooklyn born, Ms. Bonanza spent the early years of her childhood being taught piano and singing by the nuns in her neighborhood convent. She brought the house down in her kindergarten class and knew her life would be about music from that day forward. After landing a job in Las Vegas in the mid-sixties, her musical career zoomed through the major hotels in Las Vegas even before she was old enough to walk through the casinos, where celebrities like Dean Martin, Jack Carter, and Robert Goulet took her under their wings. Eventually, she returned to New York to raise a family and pursue a brilliant club career in the late 1970s. Until recently, she and her husband/manager Michael DiMartino spent much of their lives on the road. Now, she picks and chooses her favorite spots to return to where her fans await her each year. Rose has written hundreds of original songs, both music and lyrics, and was signed to a multi-record deal with Dolphin Records in 1998. Her first release with them was "Merry Christmas Baby."

The Louis Armstrong Centennial Band ska David Ostwald's Gully Low Jazz Band performs at BIRDLAND (315 West 44th Street, NYC - 212-581-3080) on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Inspired by the noble jazz pioneers Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbecke, Duke Ellington, Jelly Roll Morton and their colleagues, David Ostwald's Gully Low Jazz Band (also known as the Louis Armstrong Centennial Band) breathes life and passion into America's own great art form. "There has never been a band quite like the Gully Low Jazz Band," notes legendary record producer George Avakian. "Most groups, past and present, stick to one style. Some current groups attempt to recreate early recordings in their entirety. These guys do neither. Inspired by divergent bands of the 1920s and 30s, you'll hear them swing a variety of styles in music by a wide range of composers, always try to the joy and heart of the music." Now in its 11th year of residency at Birdland, the weekly post-workday engagement is the city's best musical bargain! Tuba player David Ostwald leads a rotating lineup that features talents such as clarinetist Anat Cohen, trombonist/vocalist Wycliffe Gordon, pianist Ehud Asherie, drummer Marion Felder, and more! There is a $10-$15 cover plus a $10 food/drink minimum.

NYC: FEINSTEIN'S PRESENTS TAMARA TUNIE "YES, I SING!"

The show will feature Musical Direction by Mike Renzi, acclaimed for his work with Peggy Lee, Lena Horne, Mel Torme, Blossom Dearie and more. Her engagement - which coincides with the release of her new film, Flight, opposite Denzel Washington - will be run for one week only. After she participated in a well-received concert at Jazz at Lincoln Center in May, performing the music of Cy Colman opposite such luminaries as James Naughton and Michele Lee, Tamara was inspired to return to singing. Tamara has been singing her entire life, including early appearances at Upstairs at Greenstreet and Steve McGraw's early in her career, before film and TV took over. After making it big in movies and TV and then bringing home a Tony Award as a producer for Spring Awakening on Broadway, many people forgot or never knew that her roots were in musical theatre. She is often asked, "Do you sing?" She is answering that question with this evening of re -imagined show tunes and jazz standards entitled "Yes, I Sing!". Perhaps best known as "Medical Examiner Melinda Warner" on NBC's long-running top-rated series "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Ms. Tunie has had many other memorable roles in film and television, including "Jackie Heath" opposite Charlize Theron and Al Pacino in The Devil's Advocate, "Leslie Christos" opposite Al Pacino in City Hall, "Sheila" opposite Samuel L. Jackson in The Caveman's Valentine (for which she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award), "Jessica Griffin" in the hugely popular CBS Daytime Drama "As The World Turns," and the villainous "Alberta Green" on Season 1 of the hit series, "24."

Since then, Broadway has embraced her in My Fair Lady (Eliza, 1993 revival), High Society, Amour (Tony nomination) and, most recently, Irving Berlin's White Christmas. Kennedy Center audiences applauded her performance as Dot opposite Raul Esparza's George in Sunday in the Park with George. Having sung throughout the world in some of the most prestigious concert halls, and having released three critically-heralded CDs, Blue Like That, Lullabies and Wildflowers and A Legrand Affair (produced by Phil Ramone), Melissa will be lighting up 54 Below this Fall with a brand new evening of tales and tunes right before she starts rehearsals for the first New York revival of Stephen Sondheim's Passion!
