About Annalisa Bastiani:
Annalisa is a native San Franciscan. She grew up to the sounds of the 60's and 70's forming her musical tastes at an early age, Cass Elliot being a great influence on her. Not only Cass's musical talent but her comfortableness with her size, overcoming the stigmas of fat girls, she was an inspiration and an early musical mentor. This is a dream come true to portray such a wonderful person and talent.
Annalisa received her Bachelor's in Music from Dominican University and her MFA in Drama (Musical Theatre emphasis) from San Diego State University. She also studied Shakespeare at London's Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts. For two years, Annalisa was seen as Mrs. Vitale in San Francisco's long running production of Tony N' Tina's Wedding.

He helped form the progressive rock band Jebél, who performed at Hollywood clubs like the Whisky, the Roxy, and the Troubadour. Shane is now finishing his music degree at UC Berkeley, where he is studying jazz guitar and performing in the UC Jazz Ensemble. Shane has been a Mamas and Papas fan since he was a kid, and is very excited to celebrate and help revive the music of Mama Cass.
