LOS ANGELES: JOHNNY COPPOLA AT ROCKWELL: TABLE & STAGE

Johnny Coppola, singer, songwriter and producer, performs at ROCKWELL: TABLE & STAGE (1714 Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, CA - 323-669-1550) on Sunday, September 21st at 8:00 pm. Johnny has released two albums, the first entitled Hollywood Indigo drew critical acclaim in 2004. His newest release called A Shot To The Kisser is currently available on ITunes and anywhere music is available. He not only sings selections from the Great American Songbook but has also penned several neo-standards; new songs in the style of the post war jet age. Influenced by the great songwriters of the past, The music harkens back to a bye-gone era when no man would leave the house without a necktie and a Fedora and women dressed to kill. His dynamic quintet is led by Grammy Award winning pianist Bill Cunliffe. Call for cover/minimum information.


SAN FRANCISCO: LISA FISCHER AT YOSHI'S

GRAMMY-winning R&B vocalist & songwriter Lisa Fischer will perform at YOSHI'S (1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA - 415-655-5600) on Sunday, September 21st with shows at 7:00 & 9:00 pm and Monday, September 22nd at 8:00 pm. Lisa Fischer is a singer who really gets around. Her life is an endless round of planes, trains, and automobiles, rehearsals and fittings. On tour with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti or Nine Inch Nails, her name may not be on the marquee, but she doesn't care. She's busy loving every minute of it. It's easy to see why she works all the time: her astonishing range, her spot-on intonation, her mastery of the stage, the way her tone wraps itself around your heart and won't let go, the infectious quality of her time feel: these things keep her on top of the list. But it's the sweetness of her smile, her visible pleasure in watching her bandmates do their stuff, her glamorous-girl-next-door quality that make fans all over the world think she's their own secret discovery. There is a $21-$34 cover.
