WASHINGTON, DC: DEE DEE SHARP'S CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

Soul legend Dee Dee Sharp performs at BLUES ALLEY (1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC - 202-337-4141 - http://www.bluesalley.com/ ) on Wednesday, December 17th with shows at 8:00 & 10:00 pm. Sharp hit the biggest with her first record for the Cameo/Parkway label, a blessing that pigeonholed the Philly songstress as a teenybopper forever to be identified with her number one smash from 1962, "Mashed Potatoes Time." Living in Philadelphia, the home of Dick Clark's American Bandstand helped her career; she appeared on the show many times from 1962 to 1981. The first black female teen idol, Sharp also became a fixture on Clark's Caravan of Stars tours, and a familiar face in the popular 16 Magazine. Lady luck helped when her vocals were added to Chubby Checker's "Slow Twistin'" (1962) making it a duet. Producers Kal Mann and Bernie Lowe didn't like LaRue's name so they created Dee Dee Sharp, since everyone called her D and she sang in D sharp. There is a $25 cover.

HOTLINE MEMBER CABARET EVENT TONIGHT IN LOS ANGELES, CA: SHARON MCNIGHT'S "TWISTED XMAS" RETURNS (This is one twisted Santa!)

HOTLINE MEMBER CABARET EVENT TONIGHT IN LOS ANGELES, CA: SHARON MCNIGHT'S "TWISTED XMAS" RETURNS (This is one twisted Santa!)

Tony-nominee Sharon McNight returns just in time with her annual "Twisted Xmas" Holiday Show and this year she's gonna "sleigh" you. It's an irreverent look at the traditions of the season. She will perform at ROCKWELL: TABLE & STAGE (1714 Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, CA - 323-669-1550) on Tuesday, December 16th at 8:00 pm. "Twisted Xmas" is a different kind of holiday show. If you're looking for a warm and cozy show filled with the traditional carols, look elsewhere. This is definitely not Donny & Marie's Christmas Program. Over the past decades, during the holidays, while Rosemary Clooney touted a "White Christmas" and Bruce Vilanch roasted his chestnuts over an open fire, McNight offered an alternative choice from the expected songs. She has stockpiled myriad and outrageous, wacky musical commentaries on the 12 days of everything from Santa, elves, gift wrapping, toys, cold, weather, snow and let's not forget "the family." Call for cover/minimum information.
