Joanne is a sassy, brassy singer who kind of makes you feel like Don Draper's in the audience as well, at the end of the bar, appreciating her sultry voice right alongside you. I've seen her before and it's a wonderful and special way to spend an evening.
From the website:
JOANNE TATHAM brings her jazz-infused vocal storytelling back to Catalina Jazz Club in "Soundtrack New York: Music from Movies Made in Manhattan." A carefully edited survey of songs from iconic movies filmed right on the city streets -- from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" to "Midnight Cowboy"l, from "West Side Story" to "Tootsie" -- this brand-new show includes the work of The Gershwins, Burt Bacharach, Kander and Ebb, Marilyn and Alan Bergman, Henry Mancini with Rod McKuen, and so many more. Arrangements are contributed by Tamir Hendelman (Barbra Streisand), Brad Ellis (Glee) and Eli Brueggemann (Saturday Night Live).
The Washington Post says: "[an] exceptionally beautiful voice...reminiscent of the pop balladeers of the early '60's and '70's, but with a fine-drawn intensity and shimmering vibrato that are all her own.
From Penthouse: "If you get a chance to see Joanne Tatham perform live, get moving! She's something you don't want to miss."
Since it's first come first serve, I do suggest making reservations. I have a feeling this will sell out. The show starts at 8:30 but The Catalina Jazz Club begins dinner service at 7. There is either a 2 drink minimum (which does not have to be alcohol) or you can order some supper.
