Cabaret for a Cause: “For Love and Tapas”

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 pm - 1:00 am


On Sat., Oct 13 from 6-9pm, the Shelter House Café in Newburgh’s Downing Park, and the Orange County Arts Council will host an intimate and fun ‘friendraiser’ cabaret evening. The Cabaret evening launches the NEW Fall/Winter Music Series at the café, which will be open on Saturdays from 6-9pm.

THE OCT 13 SHOW, “DOING IT FOR LOVE AND TAPAS,”’ was the brainchild of Pint-Sized Polly, a local singer named for the Downing Park pond, and Keith Nieto, Newburgh’s inimitable tastemaker, known for his resonant voice and bighearted style. “After all,” says Keith “we really want this to be a success for the SHELTER HOUSE CAFE AND ORANGE COUNTY ARTS COUNCIL. They need people’s support—As for us singers,” quips Keith, “we do it for love and tapas!” The featured performers will include pianist Mr Richard Wiggins, a classic NY jazz performer well known for his improv skills and broad repertoire of Jazz and Blues American Standards, and singer of “American standards from torchy to lyrical,” Kathy Lawrence who is part of the much-loved a cappella jazz quartet Polka Dots and Moonbeams, and who regularly performs in NYC at ‘The Duplex’ and other cabaret venues worldwide.

TICKETS FOR THE EVENING ARE $15. PER PERSON AND INCLUDE ONE FREE DRINK. A wine bar, tapas, and single entrée menu (TBA) will also be available for purchase.
