MW: FROM SINATRA TO COHEN: SEXY SONGS OF THE LOUNGE ERA
THE CABARET AT THE COLUMBIA CLUB (121 Monument Circle, Indianapolis, IN - 317-275-1169) presents Todd Murray in "From Sinatra to Cohen: Sexy Songs of the Lounge Era" on Friday & Saturday, November 2nd & 3rd at 8:00 pm. Before the age of electrified amplification, songs had to be sung loudly in order to be heard. The introduction of the microphone led to a new, intimate style of performing which became known as crooning. Todd Murray follows the history of crooning, beginning in the 1920's through today. With lush popular ballads, swing, Latin beat, and lyricists such as Berlin, Porter, Lerner/Lowe, Hal David, and Leonard Cohen, Murray demonstrates that all popular music has its roots in crooning. There is a $35-$45-$55 cover plus a $12 food/drink minimum.
