    “It turns out that the great Sophie Tucker was not, in fact, the last of the Red Hot Mamas. That title now can be claimed by the young Ms. Carole Bufford.” -The Wall Street Journal

    Start your Valentine’s Day evening with Carole J. Bufford as she returns to the Birdland stage with a red hot, sizzling show guaranteed to warm even the coldest of New York winter nights. With her powerhouse vocals and versatile talent, Bufford will perform new, fresh takes on vintage tunes selected especially for this evening.

    Carole has become one of the most sought after young performers on the American jazz and cabaret scene. She recently enjoyed a highly praised 10 month solo run at New York’s Birdland Jazz Club and a monthly residency at Feinstein’s/54 Below and is currently touring around the US. Her shows, speak easy. (featuring the Grammy Award-winning Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks), Come Together, and You Don’t Own Me earned her rave reviews from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Times (UK). She was featured in Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook series at Jazz at Lincoln Center as well as numerous Pops performances with orchestras across the country. Bufford is the recipient of the Nightlife, Bistro, and BroadwayWorld Awards for Outstanding Vocalist, www.carolejbufford.com

    “The real thing: you know it when you see it…The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand.” – The New York Times

    “A beloved latter‐day vaudevillian…
    an engaging, mischievous dispenser of musical repartee.”
    The New York Times

    An intimate evening of song, story, and joie de vivre delivered by the incomparable Sidney Myer. Known for his witty musical comedy, Myer delivers numbers that are understated and even heartbreaking. Disarming, funny, preposterous, touching, and utterly unique, Myer is one performer you’ll never forget.

    Bistro, BroadwayWorld, MAC and Margaret Whiting Award winner Celia Berk returns to the Beach Cafe on Saturday, February 23rd with a special preview of her new collaboration with pianist Sean Gough. Together, they have created a program of songs about love, including the kinds of hidden gems by great songwriters that have become Celia’s trademark. Celia has released two critically acclaimed albums, garnered awards for her two solo cabaret shows at the Metropolitan Room, and made memorable appearances at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center and The Town Hall. You can find tickets and more information here.

    Sean Gough is best known for his more than decade-long collaboration with veteran bass player Gene Perla, with whom he has appeared across the United States and in Europe. From a young age he has accompanied his grandfather, Metropolitan Opera tenor Ronald Naldi, in recitals. Sean’s writings have appeared in JazzTimes and on Ethan Iverson’s “Do the Math and Do the Gig” blogs.

    Celia and Sean said, “This is a different type of collaboration for both of us, offering new musical challenges. Sean approaches popular songs mainly as an improviser, Celia through the lens of storytelling. Over time, the lyrics of the songs we chose began to guide us towards a place somewhere between jazz and cabaret. We hope the audience will enjoy the discoveries we have made as much as we have.”

    Beach Cafe owner Dave Goodside said, “We are so pleased to have Beach Cafe favorite Celia Berk back. With The Beach Cafe celebrating 50 years as a home base for millions of Upper East Siders, it has become a must see stop on the New York Cabaret circuit. And we continue to make enhancements to the entire experience for our guests.”

    Celia’s second album, MANHATTAN SERENADE, received the 2017 LaMott Friedman Award and is arranged and conducted by Alex Rybeck and co-produced by Tony Award winning sound designer Scott Lehrer, the team behind her debut album YOU CAN’T RUSH SPRING. Lyricist David Zippel (whose “The Broadway Song” written with Cy Coleman receives its first commercial recording) wrote in the album notes, “A tribute to her hometown, this collection is anything but renditions of the obvious New York songs. MANHATTAN SERENADE is curated: a connoisseur’s compilation of one exquisite, undiscovered musical gem after another.” YOU CAN’T RUSH SPRING and Celia’s solo cabaret debut, directed by Jeff Harnar, earned Celia a 2015 Bistro Award: Vocalist, 2015 MAC Award: New York Debut – Female, 2015 BroadwayWorld Award for Best New York Cabaret Debut, and The 2015 Margaret Whiting Award. It appeared on a number of Best of 2014 lists.

    MANHATTAN SERENADE and YOU CAN’T RUSH SPRING are available at CDBaby.com, iTunes, Amazon and Pandora. Additional information about Celia Berk can be found at GramercyNightingale.com.

      SIDNEY MYER

      “A beloved latter‐day vaudevillian…
      an engaging, mischievous dispenser of musical repartee.”
      The New York Times

      An intimate evening of song, story, and joie de vivre delivered by the incomparable Sidney Myer. Known for his witty musical comedy, Myer delivers numbers that are understated and even heartbreaking. Disarming, funny, preposterous, touching, and utterly unique, Myer is one performer you’ll never forget.

      Bistro, BroadwayWorld, MAC and Margaret Whiting Award winner Celia Berk returns to the Beach Cafe on Saturday, February 23rd with a special preview of her new collaboration with pianist Sean Gough. Together, they have created a program of songs about love, including the kinds of hidden gems by great songwriters that have become Celia’s trademark. Celia has released two critically acclaimed albums, garnered awards for her two solo cabaret shows at the Metropolitan Room, and made memorable appearances at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center and The Town Hall. You can find tickets and more information here.

      Sean Gough is best known for his more than decade-long collaboration with veteran bass player Gene Perla, with whom he has appeared across the United States and in Europe. From a young age he has accompanied his grandfather, Metropolitan Opera tenor Ronald Naldi, in recitals. Sean’s writings have appeared in JazzTimes and on Ethan Iverson’s “Do the Math and Do the Gig” blogs.

      Celia and Sean said, “This is a different type of collaboration for both of us, offering new musical challenges. Sean approaches popular songs mainly as an improviser, Celia through the lens of storytelling. Over time, the lyrics of the songs we chose began to guide us towards a place somewhere between jazz and cabaret. We hope the audience will enjoy the discoveries we have made as much as we have.”

      Beach Cafe owner Dave Goodside said, “We are so pleased to have Beach Cafe favorite Celia Berk back. With The Beach Cafe celebrating 50 years as a home base for millions of Upper East Siders, it has become a must see stop on the New York Cabaret circuit. And we continue to make enhancements to the entire experience for our guests.”

      Celia’s second album, MANHATTAN SERENADE, received the 2017 LaMott Friedman Award and is arranged and conducted by Alex Rybeck and co-produced by Tony Award winning sound designer Scott Lehrer, the team behind her debut album YOU CAN’T RUSH SPRING. Lyricist David Zippel (whose “The Broadway Song” written with Cy Coleman receives its first commercial recording) wrote in the album notes, “A tribute to her hometown, this collection is anything but renditions of the obvious New York songs. MANHATTAN SERENADE is curated: a connoisseur’s compilation of one exquisite, undiscovered musical gem after another.” YOU CAN’T RUSH SPRING and Celia’s solo cabaret debut, directed by Jeff Harnar, earned Celia a 2015 Bistro Award: Vocalist, 2015 MAC Award: New York Debut – Female, 2015 BroadwayWorld Award for Best New York Cabaret Debut, and The 2015 Margaret Whiting Award. It appeared on a number of Best of 2014 lists.

      MANHATTAN SERENADE and YOU CAN’T RUSH SPRING are available at CDBaby.com, iTunes, Amazon and Pandora. Additional information about Celia Berk can be found at GramercyNightingale.com.

    570 Tenth Ave 4th Floor inside YOTEL New York, NY 10036

    The best songs are about love—playful, passionate, heartbreaking, enduring. Willy Falk: Mostly Love revels in richly-crafted interpretations of songs about love, coupled with stories from a thirty-five-year career on Broadway. He burst on the Broadway scene in Marilyn: An American Fable, a musical which attained cult-like status as one of the greatest flops of all time, but saw Willy receiving a standing ovation every night for his solo number: “You Are So Beyond.” When Miss Saigon first came to Broadway, he was chosen to play leading man Chris, receiving a Tony award nomination alongside Jonathan Pryce and Lea Salonga. Known for his powerful performances in musicals and concerts through the years, this evening speaks of music, memories, and laughter, but mostly…love.

    “Falk soared in the vocal inflections of rock so dazzlingly that the audience that had been jeering all night gave him an ovation DURING the music. The applause following the number briefly stopped the show—and after a very short book scene– Falk got another ovation.”
    Ethan Mordden, The Last Twenty-Five Years of the Broadway Musical

    “We certainly take as many cues from Mr. Falk’s earnestly American, nice-guy aura, and the vigor of his voice, as we do from what he is singing. When he and Miss Salonga come together, the basic laws of biology supplant those of the drama. They look good in each other’s arms, the way movie stars looked good when the studios were masterminding their careers.”
    David Richards, The New York Times

    KT Sullivan Returns to Birdland
    “I Can Cook: When Barbara Met Wally”
    February 27 – March 2 at 7pm
    Birdland Theater

    Birdland Theater is proud to announce that singer KT Sullivan will perform four very special shows February 27 – March 2 at 7pm.

    Barbara Cook’s career was resurrected through a relationship with Wally Harper, who introduced her to the world of cabaret, which opened an amazing second act in what had been a luminous career as an actress and vocalist. A Broadway legend, Ms. Cook found her musical equal in Harper, and he found his muse in her. Then in 1980, a chance introduction to Barbara’s album “It’s Better With A Band” started KT Sullivan, a starry-eyed Oklahoma native on the way to a career in cabaret. In “I Can Cook,” KT pays tribute to both Barbara and Wally, and the amazing journey that began when they met. Featuring “Sing A Song With Me” and “It’s Better With A Band” (both written by Harper) as well as classics arranged by Wally for Barbara such as “Dancing In The Dark,” “Wait Till You See Him,” “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “I Love A Piano,” “Come In From The Rain,” “If Love Were All,” and “I Can Cook.” Eric Michael Gillett directs, and Jon Weber musical directs.
