Elaine Brier brings her new show 'Put Your Funny Where Your Mouth Is' to THE CUTTING ROOM (44 East 32nd Street, NYC - 212-691-1900) on Saturday, June 18th at 7:30 pm. Elaine Brier is a singer/ comic who has been entertaining people with inappropriate material for longer than she cares to remember. A native New Yorker from the Bronx, she attended the High School of Music and Art to study vocal music and did not dance on a table even once. She started her performing career in the 90's, singing in local New York City piano bars and practicing the fine art of shtick. Elaine has done many other things over the years such as voice overs, commercials, television, corporate gigs, birthing babies, etc., but performing for a live audience is still where her passion lies. She won the Backstage Bistro Award in 2003 for her one woman show, "Jirque du Soleil," and was given the MAC Award for "Best Piano Bar Performer" in 2015. She has been a staple at Don't Tell Mama Piano Bar for over 20 years and is very happy to have it as her second home. Elaine has three kids and hopes to write some songs that they are allowed to listen to some day. Put Your Funny Where Your Mouth Is is Elaine's first venture out of the piano bar since her children usurped her life. Through musical comedy, she reflects upon motherhood, divorce, returning to college after 25 years, religion, and shamelessly lowering her standards. This show contains all new material and she is very excited to inflict it upon the masses. There is a $25 cover plus a $20 food/drink minimum.

PROVINCETOWN, MA: 12TH ANNUAL PROVINCETOWN JAZZ FESTIVAL 2016 ANNOUNCED - OPENS AUGUST 11th
FEATURED CABARET ORGANIZATION EVENT

The 12th Annual, 2016 Provincetown Jazz Festival (ProvincetownJazzFestival.org ) will be held in two venues this year. The first event, on August 11th at 7:00 pm at THE CROWN & ANCHOR (247 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA - 508-487-1430 - https://onlyatthecrown.com ) with the second event held on August 15th, with performances at 7:00pm & 9:00 pm at the THE COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS (4404 Route 28 - Falmouth Road - Cotuit, MA - 508-428-0669 - http://www.ArtsOnTheCape.org ). For 11 years the Provincetown Jazz Festival has presented jazz musicians from the United States, Canada, South America, United Kingdom, Europe, and New Zealand. This year they will feature four jazz musicians making their Provincetown Jazz Festival debut:

Billy Stritch sings the Mel Tormé Songbook, a tribute to one of the legendary jazz singers of all time and features some his greatest arrangements. Billy is one of the premier singer-pianists on the New York and national jazz and cabaret scene and accompanies & arranges for Liza Minnelli, Linda Lavin, Marilyn Maye, and many others. He will be accompanied by Ron Ormsby on bass and Bart Weisman on drums.

Evan Christopher, who has created a highly personal brand of "contemporary early-jazz" that strives to extend the legacy of the New Orleans clarinet style. Charismatic and versatile, Christopher was drawn to New Orleans from his native California in 1994 by the rich musical landscape in the birthplace of Jazz. He tours extensively in the United States and Europe and has performed at the Newport Jazz Festival. Appearing with Evan will be Fred Boyle on piano, Nicki Parrott on bass and Bart Weisman on drums.

Nicki Parrott, a world renowned double bassist & jazz vocalist and was voted by Japan's Swing Journal to be the Best Jazz Vocalist in 2007 & 2008. Born in Australia, Nicki relocated to New York and was bassist & vocalist for the legendary Les Paul for over 10 years. She performs regularly at most of the world's top jazz festivals and venues.

Scott Avidon, a jazz sax player, composer and educator from New Jersey, accompanied by Fabiano de Castro from Brazil on piano, Ron Ormsby on bass and Bart Weisman on drums.
