Cabaret Contraire - Last Two Shows!
Jul. 21st, 2002
Every Wed in July
A licensed Parisian café
(you can order BOOZE!)
4362 MAIN ST (at 28th)
Cabaret Contraire winds down its July series with two very special guests:
This mysterious duo of two brothers was inspired by the regular Contraire shenanigans of Ralph & crew and were told that if they could get an act together, they could debut at the Cabaret. See them now! We have no idea what to expect, but ladies... they are two really good-looking young lads!!
Melissie Melodie (aka Melissa Peabody)
The continental cafe stylings of Melissa Peabody, or as I think she should change her name to: Melissie Melodie. Tentative repertoire: Youkali, and Je ne t'aime pas by Kurt Weill and Sous les ciels de Paris, (made popular by Edith Piaf). Piano accompaniment.
This is the last show for Cabaret Contraire. Thanks to one and all.
Remember: Admission is FREE (Vancouver's favourite word) but we will pass the hat (Vancouver's cue to eat fast & split).
We now have enough material for the next RALPH album and will be hunkering down reviewing the tapes to pick the arrangements that will make it to disc. Look for a simultaneous UK/USA/Canada release next year.
Next RALPH appearance:
Aug. 22, The Jazz Cellar, as special guest of DJ Meta4. Just the bop word stylings of Ralph Alfonso and the turntables & gadget gizmos of Nettwerk/NuTone recording Artiste, DJ Meta4 (aka Ian Menzies). Forward into the past for a very very special night.
Sunday, Aug 25. Heritage Hall, Main St.
