Nora Michaels & Victor Janusz, Fri March 11 @ 7 PM
Welcome to Seattle's March Is Cabaret Month Festival 2016!
MARCH IS CABARET MONTH Presents:
NORA MICHAELS & VICTOR JANUSZ in "VIC & NORA: Song Sleuths"
Blues chanteuse Nora Michaels and singer-pianist Victor Janusz investigate the songs they love most (some of which they wrote themselves) and the stories that created them. Like Nick & Nora in the "Thin Man" series, these detectives uncover sources with flair, wit and grit. Music Director: Victor Janusz. With Medearis "MD" Dixson on saxophone.
Nora Michaels has performed in Japan, Iceland, Scotland and New York City's TATAU (formerly The Versailles Club, built for Piaf), where Michaels performed "L' Mome Piaf". Northwest audiences have experienced Nora's many appearances at blues festivals; she also helped to create the "Give Peace A Dance" Festival. Michaels has performed with many artists, including Neal Storme, Roy Orbison, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Marianne Faithfull and Duffy Bishop Band. "It was Duffy who introduced us and first pushed me to work with Nora," says her pianist Victor Janusz. "With the first note I heard Nora sing, I realized she was a true Blues sister to the divine Miss Bishop!" Says Nora: "You haven't really heard me sing until you hear me with Victor at the piano."
One of the Northwest's most in-demand piano men, Victor Janusz has fronted his own band for 15 years, headlining at venues from Canlis, Columbia Tower Club and El Gaucho to Tulalip Casino and Salty's on Alki (where he has been resident "Weekend Brunch" pianist for eleven years). His one-man show "HANDS SOLO: Pianoman", directed by Lori Larsen, sold out an exclusive two-week engagement in ACT Theatre's 2014 season; the show also played the Duplex in NYC, the Arthur Newman in Palm Springs, and the Yale International Cabaret Conference where it was workshopped. Victor has enjoyed "Command Performances" for both President Barack Obama and Microsoft Chief Steve Ballmer!
SHOWTIME: 7 pm. Doors at 6:00.
