NYC: SHEPLEY METCALF - "DON'T BOTHER TO KNOCK" CD RELEASE

Vocalist Shepley Metcalf is celebrating the release of her third recording, "Don't Bother to Knock," with a series of shows on the east coast this Fall. New Yorkers can catch Metcalf at the THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440) for one show on Saturday, November 1st at 7:00 pm, singing music from the CD along with some other lesser-known gems from the Great American Songbook. Musical partner, Ron Roy, will be at the piano. "Don't Bother to Knock" is a dream project for Metcalf: a collection of songs from the 1930's to 50's with high charm factor that have been rarely recorded since their debut. Her love of song sleuthing means months and sometimes years of searching out and listening to unique music defined by humor, lovely melodies and clever lyrics. This singularity is a modus operandi that has served Metcalf well on her previous recordings and many performances, where fans can always count on hearing a carefully selected set no one else is performing on any bandstand, anywhere. For "Don't Bother to Knock" she found inspiration in artists of yore like Annette Hanshaw, Mildred Bailey and Anita O'Day and writers including Johnny Burke (with Harold Spina, "You're Not the Only Oyster in the Stew), Dorothy Fields (with Burton Lane, "Have Feet, Will Dance") and Richard Whiting (with George Marion Jr., "My Future Just Passed"). There is a $20 cover plus a 2-drink minimum.

(1 hour earlier on Sunday). If music were about pictures, percussionist Poncho Sanchez's music would best be described as a kaleidoscopic swirl of some of the hottest colors and brightest lights to emerge from either side of the border. At any given show, on any given record, fragments of Latin jazz, swing, bebop, salsa and other infectious grooves collide and churn in a fiery swirl, with results that are no less than dazzling. Although born in Laredo, Texas, in 1951 to a large Mexican-American family, Poncho Sanchez grew up in a suburb of L.A., where he was raised on an unusual cross section of sounds that included straightahead jazz, Latin jazz and American soul. By his teen years, his musical consciousness had been solidified by the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Cal Tjader, Mongo Santamaria, Wilson Pickett and James Brown. Along the way, he taught himself to play guitar, flute, drums and timbales, but eventually settled on the congas. There is a $20-$28 cover.

That term perfectly describes the eclectic repertoire of standards, blues and western swing that she delivers with such passion and style. Her affinity for this music developed over a lifetime of listening. Growing up in Toronto, Laura performed Gilbert and Sullivan operettas in high school while listening to Billie Holiday, Linda Ronstadt and Dolly Parton at home. At the University of Toronto, where she studied psychology and sociology, Laura fell hard for theatre, acting and singing in numerous productions. That's where she also began experimenting with the jazz repertoire, working up some standards with a young piano player named Peter Hill. For this show she is also joined by Brendan Davis - bass, Nick Fraser - drums, Bob Brough - tenor saxophone, and Chris Gale - baritone saxophone. There is a $15 cover.

CABARET EVENTS IN LONDON FOR THIS DATE



LONDON: JULIAN CLARY: FOR THE LOVE OF COQS

Julian Clary brings his show 'The Love Of Coqs' to THE CRAZY COQS AT BRASSERIE ZEDEL (20 Sherwood St, Piccadilly, London W1F 7ED - 020 7734 4888) on Tuesday through Saturday, October 27th through November 1st at 8:00 pm. The show is about music, an abundance of laughter, sharp- witted jibes - often at the expense of the audience - and partying up close and personal with the man himself. Much-loved comedian and elder statesman of the double entendre, Julian remains one of England's most popular and least predictable entertainers. In the past year Julian's career has gone from strength-to-strength. He has completed a smash-hit UK tour of Position Vacant: Apply Within, lent his sharp tongue to the judging panel on Your Face Sounds Familiar (ITV), shared an insight into his 30 year career in showbiz on Piers Morgan's Life Stories (ITV) and terrorised the audience with a cattle prod on The Jonathan Ross Show (ITV). Since winning Celebrity Big Brother in 2012, Julian has also appeared on numerous TV shows and remains a regular panelist on BBC Radio 4's Just a Minute. He is also a Sunday Times best-selling novelist and his third book, Briefs Encountered, was published in March 2013 to unanimous praise. Call for cover/minimum information.

Richard Douglas Productions presents Anita Harris at THE PHEASANTRY (152-154 King's Road, London SW3 4UT - 08456 027 017) on Monday & Tuesday, October 27th & 28th at 8:30 pm.

Call for cover/minimum information.
