Review of Performance @ Anthology


San Diego, CA

John Cain, jazz pianist/band leader/arranger, wowed Anthology Friday night with his line-up of talented "Sinatra Tribute" singers, the gorgeous and exciting Katie Cat and the dynamic Dave Stanger. This was a first class New York-style Cabaret show also featuring the talents of the beautiful Adrian Nims on jazz sax and flute, along with the excellent (hand- picked by Cain) back-up musicians on bass, drums and guitar. Hope they will be back soon! It's rare to get this caliber of live music entertainment in San Diego.
