Some hot new items for the auction...
Moonie-turned-cabaret star Russ Lorenson (last seen in THE GOLDEN APPLE) will be donating his singing and his band, the Kelly Park Trio's, services for your own party! (value? We would say priceless, but actually he's been auctioned off before, and the last time he did this for another charity, the winning bid was $2100!)
The Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael has donated two (2) subscriptions to their 2006-07 Singer & Songwriter series, valued at $300. Next year's season includes concerts by Klea Blackhurst (!), Broadway stars Liz and Ann Hampton Callaway, and rising cabaret stars Maude Maggart (she's rock star Fiona Apple's sister!) and Tony DeSare.
Moonie Kristopher McDowell, who also runs the Central Cabaret Series in Stockton/Modesto, is donating tickets to an upcoming show along with a one-night's stay at a local bed and breakfast.
All of these new items sound pretty awesome, and perfect for a Moon fan.
Russ continues to garner great reviews for his CD and live performances, as does Kristopher in that same review. I've personally been to the Marin Singer & Songwriter series quite a few times. It's a great venue, and they get amazing cabaret artists that you rarely see outside New York.
What other tidbits can they possibly come up with in the next 10 days? Certainly is worth checking out the Gala though, don't you think?
