As we wished—yay!—Wendy is game to offer two tickets to her show in New York City next week at The Metropolitan Room, featuring songs by composers as diverse as Cole Porter, Joni Mitchell, and Wendy’s collaborator, Michele Brourman. This exciting event celebrates Wendy’s debut album, Breathing, and is tied together with entertaining vignettes from Wendy’s colorful family—a fun and personal show.
Wendy is my fiercely-fabulous sister-in-law. She is both a talented singer and a charming storyteller. She’s hilarious, in fact.
...And it’s killing me that we missed her opening night last week in Los Angeles! Anyone want to go to the New York show in my stead? I’ll sit on your lap in spirit.
As Mitch Ellis of the performing group Chambers, Herbert & Ellis put it, after seeing the Los Angeles performance last week, “Wendy Lane Bailey's show was truly grand... Under Michele Brourman's artful musical direction she put on a really terrific show. Beautiful song selection, sensitive phrasing, clear storytelling and a warm rich voice. Kinda the whole package.”
Wendy performs on Thursday, the 21st and on Friday, the 22nd at 7pm. I have TWO tickets to give away—and a C.D. Comment to enter. Please indicate in your comment if you want to be entered into the TICKETS drawing; otherwise, I'll assume you're in it for the C.D. If you're in the greater New York area and you don’t win the tickets giveaway, head to The Metropolitan Room for a exceptional show nevertheless! You’re sure to have a great night. And the cover charge is only $20.
One more time, that’s The Metropolitan Room at 34 West 22nd Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues) in New York City. Reservations can be called in at (212) 206-0440 or made online at metropolitanroom.com.
