Hosted by the ever-congenial Merle Kessler & intrepid musical director Joshua Brody, we present, what might prove to be, the final Evening of Song. 25 singers each choose a song to perform on the given theme “songs about food and/or kvetching.“ Since 1987, comic Merle Kessler (of Ian Shoales & Duck’s Breath Mystery Theater fame) and musician Joshua Raoul Brody (of Tango No. 9, the big band Orchestra Nostalgico, and accompanist for Mr. Lucky, Johnny Lonely, Robin Williams, The Residents, Rick & Ruby) have been inviting a few dozen of their closest friends to each sing a song they’ve always wanted to sing, but have never had the opportunity. The resulting show, called An Evening Of Song, is an embarassment — some might call it a humiliation, of riches, ranging from old chestnuts to new originals, jazzy instrumentals to a cappella Bulgarian folk songs, sublime ballads to ridiculous novelties, all accompanied by Brody’s stalwart Experimental Love Orchestra. The result is a little bit Prairie Home Companion, a little American Idol, a little Gong Show, and a whole lot of something you’ve never heard before!
