Bobby Nesbitt - "You've Got That Thing-A Salute to Bobby Short"
January 5 & 6, 2014 at 8:00pm
Tennessee Williams Cabaret, 5901 College Rd.
Singer/Pianist Bobby Nesbitt returns to the Cabaret in his salute to the definitive cabaret entertainer, the incomparable Bobby Short.
Nesbitt will trace Bobby Short's career from his start in the midwest, through his residencies in California, London and Paris, climaxing with his 25 year reign at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City. Bobby Short was the ultimate "saloon singer" and a leading interpreter of the great songwriters; Porter, Gershwin, Berlin, Mercer, Rodgers and Hart and so many more. Joining Bobby will be his frequent collaborators, Skipper Kripitz on percussion and Joe Dallas on bass.
Don't miss this elegant evening of sophisticated songs as Bobby Nesbitt recreates an evening at the Cafe Carlyle and pays tribute to the entertainer who inspired him, Bobby Short.
