The Last Evening of Song
Whine & Dine: Songs of Food and/or Kvetching
Hosted by the ever-congenial Merle Kessler & intrepid musical director Joshua Brody, we present, what might prove to be, the final Evening of Song. 25 singers each choose a song to perform on the given theme songs about food and/or kvetching.
Since 1987, comic Merle Kessler (of Ian Shoales & Ducks Breath Mystery Theater fame) and musician Joshua Raoul Brody (of Tango No. 9, the big band Orchestra Nostalgico, and accompanist for Mr. Lucky, Johnny Lonely, Robin Williams, The Residents, Rick & Ruby) have been inviting a few dozen of their closest friends to each sing a song they've always wanted to sing, but have never had the opportunity. The resulting show, called An Evening Of Song, is an embarassment -- some might call it a humiliation, of riches, ranging from old chestnuts to new originals, jazzy
instrumentals to a cappella Bulgarian folk songs, sublime ballads to ridiculous
novelties, all accompanied by Brody's stalwart Experimental Love Orchestra.
The result is a little bit Prairie Home Companion, a little American Idol, a little Gong Show, and a whole lot of something you've never heard before!
