Lua Hadar with TWIST - Summer Solstice Party - June 20 at 7pm
Just back from performances in New York, Lille, Paris and Hollywood, Lua Hadar takes the stage at the Eureka Theater on Sunday, June 20 at 7 pm, with her high-octane band, TWIST, for an international Solstice Party. Come celebrate Lua's birthday and welcome her back to the City by the Bay. Music director Jason Martineau leads the band, comprised of piano, bass, drums, latin percussion, reeds and jazz accordion. Dancing in the aisles is definitely encouraged! Wine & beer will be available in the lobby. The Summer Solstice Party is presented as part of the 2010 Something C.O.O.L. Summer Cabaret Festival at the Eureka Theater, which is walking distance to San Francisco's beautiful Embarcadero.
Multi-lingual and multi-talented, Lua Hadar has performed as a singer and actor since her New York childhood. She is now based in San Francisco, where she performs and tours with her band, TWIST, singing jazz spiced with pop, funk, latin and international cabaret. She is an entertainer that brings joy and laughter to audiences, no matter what language they speak.
Instantly accessible and truly exotic, this Broadway-influenced performer has been molded by exchange experiences in places as diverse as Bali, Russia, Switzerland, Japan, Thailand, France and in Italy. Her fascination with world cultures is reflected in the sophisticated song choices for TWIST, in the development of their signature “jazz without borders.”
A unique and original vocalist with a soaring range, Lua interprets lyrics in several languages with a charming, swinging delivery. Michael Arens of Jazz Germany says “...She makes the other side of the world seem a stone's throw away.”
Her Paris debut in July 2009 came on the heels of the successful New York release of her latest CD, Lua Hadar with TWIST, at Broadway’s famed Iridium Jazz Club (“…stunning…sheer beauty… she rocked!” – Joe Regan, Jr. Cabaret Scenes, NYC) and her band’s international debut at the Bangkok International Festival of Dance & Music.
Her CD has garnered raves from around the world, (“…vivacious brand of jazz…inspired…swinging…cool” - Luna Kafé, Sweden; “…seductive… polished vocal phrasing… irresistible” - Blast Radio 1386, UK) as well as Radio Top 10 Ratings in the USA.
She takes the stage at the Eureka Theater following her spring performances at New York’s Cornelia Street Café, a concert tour in France and an appearance at the Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill in L.A.
