Lisa Viggiano: "FROM LADY DAY TO THE BOSS"
BISTRO & BROADWAY WORLD AWARD WINNER LISA VIGGIANO OPENS NEW SHOW "FROM LADY DAY TO THE BOSS: 50 YEARS OF TALENT DISCOVERED BY LEGENDARY COLUMBIA RECORD PRODUCER JOHN HENRY HAMMOND"
PANGEA, SEPTEMBER 27 AT 7 PM.
During Lisa Viggiano's critically-praised 2018 Bruce Springsteen Tribute Shows (which helped earn her a 2019 Bistro Award for Best Vocalist), she included a section of songs by iconic musicians and singers discovered over five decades by talent scout/record producer John Henry Hammond, who also championed Springsteen and recorded The Boss'first demo. Now, like a spinoff from a hit TV sitcom, Viggiano has created an entire cabaret show featuring songs and performers produced by Hammond during his long career at Columbia Records. In FROM LADY DAY TO THE BOSS: 50 YEARS OF TALENT DISCOVERED BY LEGENDARY COLUMBIA RECORD PRODUCER JOHN HENRY HAMMOND, Viggiano will deliver her unique renditions of classic tunes recorded by Bessie Smith, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Harry James, Count Basie, Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Leonard Cohen, George Benson, and Springsteen.
The show is directed by MAC and Bistro Award Winner Tanya Moberly, with multiple MAC Award Winner Tracy Stark on Piano and Tom Hubbard on Bass.
Celebrating her 20th year as a cabaret performer in 2019, this October Lisa Viggiano will make her debut at the 30th Annual New York Cabaret Convention at the Rose Theatre at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Lisa was awarded with a 2019 Best Vocalist Award by BistroAwards.com, which said ...musician, poet, storyteller; Viggiano handles all three elements masterfully. Lisa has performed as a singer/actor since childhood, sharing the stage and screen with talents such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Tom Hanks, Rita Moreno and Bonnie Raitt. In 2016, her critically acclaimed show, Night In the City, earned her a BroadwayWorld.com New York Cabaret Award as Best Female Vocalist. Lisa has performed in major cabaret rooms throughout the country, including Feinsteins/54 Below, Society Cabaret & The Plush Room in San Francisco, and The Gardenia in Los Angeles, and she has sung the National Anthem at games for various New York sports teams. By day, Lisa uses her voice as a speech-language pathologist for special needs students, helping them to find their voices. You can follow Lisa Viggiano on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
