Terese Genecco & Her Little Big Band with special guest star Lea DeLaria
"The longest-running nightclub act on Broadway" is on the move! For one special night, multi-award winning singer, bandleader and comedian Terese Genecco grabs her high-octane octet filled with some of the city's most respected jazz and Broadway musicians and makes a B-line from The Iridium to the new Cutting Room and from the swing era to the Rat-Packing 60's.

As Genecco likes to quip about her hard-driving, up-tempo shows, "there's a two-drink minimum and a two-ballad maximum!" Genecco's high-flying wingmen are Ted Kooshian on piano, Marco Panascia on bass, Ray Marchica on drums, Cliff Lyons on sax, Mark Miller on trombone, Kenny Lavender on trumpet with Mayra Casales on Latin percussion. The Wall Street Journal's Will Friedwald has said that Genecco "and her three horns and five rhythm put on an unstoppable juggernaut of a set."

Joining Genecco and her band for her own special segment in each set will be jazz musician, Broadway Diva, Actor, Writer, and Stand-up Comic Lea DeLaria. Distinguishing herself in every form of entertainment that she touches, it is plain to see why Ben Brantley of The New York Times describes Lea as "every inch a star." The first openly gay comic to appear on national television in the United States, (Arsenio Hall, 1993) DeLaria has gone on to tour the world with her one-of-a-kind blend of cool jazz and in-your-face comedy as well as give show-stopping performances on the Broadway stage, in major motion pictures, and in a variety of television shows including memorable characters on Will And Grace, Friends, and One Life To Live. Her three recordings for Warner Bros. jazz have all hit the jazz charts and receive regular airplay in the U.S., Canada and throughout Europe.

The last time these two powerhouse performers came together on one stage was four years ago in a sold-out marathon of a show at San Francisco's Rrazz Room where the elated audience cheered them on into the wee hours of the morning. Leah Garchik of The San Francisco Chronicle wrote about the night saying that "According to a spy there, both jazz belters gave it their all and acknowledged all of the 'Jazzbians' in the house." While they may be cut from the same energetic cloth, these are two very different performers whose combined efforts create an entertainment experience for their audiences that work them into a frenzy and send them leaping to their feet, begging for more. One fan recently proclaimed, "I am a Geneccoholic!" and DeLaria's fans are nothing if not loyal and rabid. You won't want to miss this show.
