CABARET EVENTS FOR NEW JERSEY, PENNSYLVANIA, WASHINGTON DC, MID-ATLANTIC - SOUTHERN STATES FOR THIS DATE


WASHINGTON, DC: A FREDDY COLE CHRISTMAS AT BLUES ALLEY

Freddy Cole brings his show 'A Freddy Cole Christmas' to BLUES ALLEY (1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC - 202-337-4141) on Thursday through Sunday, December 18th through 21st with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Freddy Cole doesn't apologize for sounding like his brother, Nat "King" Cole. There are certain unmistakable similarities. He plays piano and sings and performs live with guitar and upright bass, just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. But he has emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his elder brother. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday than that of his brother and his timing swings a little more. Cole's career continues to ascend as he has moved into the front ranks of America's homegrown art form with a style and musical sophistication all his own. There is a $25 cover.

Please remember, if you have a cabaret event coming up, to send in your press release to me at stuhamstra@svhamstra.com - do not assume the venue will do it for you. Some venues send it items just a few days before show date, and skip some shows completely. And please do not rely on an announcement on FaceBook to be received by all on your "friends" list. Send your release by e-mail, directly. If your release is complete & appropriate and received at least a week before your event, and it will be published on the website. Releases fron advertisers and members are posted first. To see the type of press release information I am looking for CLICK HERE
