Adi Braun salutes three of the greatest female vocalists of all time in “An Evening with Rosie, Judy, and Peggy!”
From the sultry “Come On-a My House”, to the sexy mystique of “Fever”, to the bittersweet truth of “The Man that Got Away”, Adi, takes you down the yellow brick road and over the rainbow in a show of Clooney, Garland and Lee signature songs and swinging hits.
Adi adds her own signature flair and powerhouse vocals to toe-tapping classics and luscious ballads in a show with something for everyone that will leave you asking “Is That All There Is?”
Joining Adi tonight is Tom King (PIANO), Pat Collins (BASS) and Daniel Barnes (DRUMS).
ADI BRAUN has a long list of cabaret, concert and theatre successes to her credit. She has performed in every major jazz and concert venue in Toronto, has toured Canada, the United States, and Europe. In the fall of 2010 Adi released her fourth CD – “Canadian Scenes I” which marked her singer/songwriter debut. “Canadian Scenes I” follows Adi’s three, critically-acclaimed CDs - “Delishious” (2003), short-listed for a 2004 Juno Award nomination, “The Rules of the Game” (2006), from which the song “Show Me Yours” was featured on an episode of the hit U.S. TV series “The “L” Word”, and “Live at the Metropolitan Room” (2007), recorded off-the-floor at New York’s acclaimed jazz/cabaret venue.
Adi started “singing sideways” in the late ‘90s and returned to the music she loved, which she calls “cabarazz”, drawing on aspects from both cabaret and jazz. After winning a local competition in 2001, she was catapulted to centre-stage as one of Canada’s leading jazz vocalists. In 2007, Adi was nominated as “Best Major Jazz Vocalist of the Year” by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC).
Her sophisticated style and subtle delivery evokes such vocal greats as Sarah Vaughan, Lotte Lenya, Judy Garland and Rosemary Clooney.
Elizabeth Ahlfors of New York’s Cabaret Scenes describes Adi as "A tad Dinah Washington, a hint of Lena Horne, the enveloping warmth of Doris Day, all gift-wrapped up in a unique sound that is singular Adi Braun!"
