Jazz-Cabaret Nights, 2 Songstresses

On December 26, 2004, an earthquake in the Indian Ocean, one of the deadliest natural disasters in recorded history, created tsunami waves reaching 100 feet high. Nearly a quarter million people were killed, a large number of them in Thailand. Many events were organized to provide aid, and one of them, a televised concert in San Francisco entitled "A Benefit for Tsunami Victims in Thailand," starred a local show business personality, cabaret singer Kathy Holly, and her backup ensemble, the popular Uptown Singers.

Kathy had a particular attachment the people of Thailand. As a younger woman, she had toured the country with USO troupes, singing for American and Thai military units stationed at Chiang Mai, Udon Thani, and other cities. A veteran performer described as "delightful" by Broadway World, Kathy had many celebrity friends in show business, and quite a number of them answered her call to participate in the benefit show, which helped finance a building fund for Thai survivors who had lost their homes.

On Friday, October 18, and Saturday, October 19, both nights at 7pm, Kathy Holly is headlining two evenings of song, wine, and tapas, at Vinos y Tapas, a San Miguel wine bar and café, rated five stars on TripAdvisor. Located at Insurgentes 63, Vinos y Tapas is known for its Mediterranean cuisine, with vegetarian and gluten-free food options.

Holly will perform with another San Francisco vocalist, jazz singer Suzy Q. Abbott, who was recently featured at the San Jose Jazz Festival; and three of her favorite local musicians: bassist Ruben Olvera, violinist Pedro Cartas, and pianist Dulce Revillas.

An international performer who sings in eight languages, Kathy will combine hits by Gershwin, Porter, and Jobim with songs in French, Italian, and Spanish.

This will mark Kathy Holly's fourth appearance in San Miguel. The first was a benefit concert for the SPA animal shelter, followed by a concert at the Teatro Santa Ana, and a dinner show earlier this year at Vinos y Tapas, which has eagerly invited her back.

Tickets for the October 18 and 19 shows are 600 pesos, and include a glass of wine and four tapas. The show is expected to run until 9:30pm.
