Krisanthi Pappas

Is a nationally acclaimed cabaret  singer-songwriter and has been compared to Norah Jones and Diana Krall by  JazzTimes Magazine. As well as her vocal gentleness, she has the husky-voiced  passion of Bonnie Raitt and the swinging playfulness of Ella Fitzgerald. Her  jazz songwriting style has been compared to Randy Newman by Cadence Magazine,  while her mellow pop songwriting is similar to Sarah McLachlan and Michael  Buble.  Krisanthi has performed  throughout New England and New York City and her Billboard®-award-winning original  songs can be heard on many Television Shows and Movie Soundtracks.


Dane Vannatter was awarded the 2006 Bistro Award for  Outstanding Vocalist by the critics of BackStage in New York. Dane has been  acclaimed by reviewers at the New York Post, and the Boston Globe remarks,  "Dane Vannatter's distinctive style leaves an imprint on whatever music he  sings. His voice has a floating quality that gets in your head and won't  leave...his music is a swinging, soaring adventure!" Dane is also the recipient  of the 2000 Bistro Award for Outstanding CD for his second recording Flight. He  has been nominated for 4 MAC awards and is a 2007 Nightlife Award finalist.  Dane has performed in Boston, New York, Washington, DC and the West Coast.


Lisa Jason's show is a musical journey celebrating the legendary women of song from Judy Garland to Barbara Streisand, from Dusty Springfield to Peggy Lee and Broadway.  Performing since childhood in dance, musical theatre and as a rock and  roll front woman, Lisa has been a long Cape Cod favorite performing artist and  singer/songwriter and has been the opening act for Huey Lewis and The News, KC  and The Sunshine Band, the original cast of the Jersey Boys in Concert, and  many more.  Cabaret Scenes Magazine  says Lisa is "a firebrand of a performer who packs a powerful belt, a  rapier wit, and a big heart into her petite frame."


Songwriter Harriet Goldberg - Krisanthi Pappas, Dane Vannatter and Lisa Jason will  each be performing songs by Boston area songwriter Harriet Goldberg.  John Amodeo of writes, “It is a mystery why  Boston-area songwriter, Harriet Goldberg is not on the  national scene writing songs for Diana Krall and Michael Buble. Her  sophisticated blend of romantic, urbane lyrics with infectious melodies … could  easily have been sung by Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn or Betty Carter.”  Harriet’s  new CD, My Time to Fly, has been nominated for a 2012 MAC Award for best  recording.  Her music has been heard on  “Hawaii Five-O,” “The Finder” and other television shows, and has been featured  in Boston Sings Boston III and IV, BACA (Boston Association of Cabaret Artists)  Songwriters Showcase, Metropolitan Room, Don't Tell Mama and the MAC/ASCAP  Songwriter’s Showcase.
