Crooners & Songbirds is a monthly cabaret focusing on vocal jazz, blues and popular music from the '20s and '30s. Prepare to tap your toes and get runs in your hose as Megan Lynch scorches the torch songs and gets saucy, Tony Marcus caresses his archtop guitar into sweet submission, Kelly McCubbin shows you the dark side of ukulele, and Amy Z wrestles the saw even more melodically and provocatively than Marlene Dietrich did.
* Megan Lynch
has crooned, warbled, belted, and yodeled
at Crooners & Songbirds, Bijou, Mighty, Noe Valley Ministry and other establishments where they serve fine tarts.
* Tony Marcus
has performed music from Dublin to Yokohama and from Alaska to Florida. Bands he has played with include R. Crumb & the Cheap Suit Serenaders, Cats & Jammers, Geoff Muldaur's Fountain of Youth, The Arkansas Sheiks, The Royal Society Jazz Orchestra, and The Frank Wakefield Band. He currently also performs with Patrice Haan as Leftover Dreams.
* Kelly McCubbin, The Uke of the Apocalypse
- Uke with attitude and without
borders. Kelly plays favorites from the 20s, 30s and other popular decades.
If you've always wanted to hear Cliff Edwards segued into Billy Squire, this
is the uke player for you!
* Amy Zing has always loved shiny and dangerous things, and on that fateful
day in the hardware store, when her eyes landed on Stella, funny ideas began
to bubble in her brain. Liberating each other from lives of mundane utility,
they've both learned to appreciate the beauty hidden under the rust.
NOTE: Crooners & Songbirds is at a new venue for this month.
