Living Arts Cabaret
FEATURED ARTISTS: Tony Romanello - performing a special solo-acoustic set, Tony will not only enchant his audience with the lyrical wonder of his past three albums, but he will also take you on a melodic journey through his latest album, ³Counting Stars². Tony¹s work with the Tony Romanello Band is both hard-edged and intelligent rock. His vocal and playing style is nothing less than ethereal.
And: Captain Chambers-The Phoenix. Captain Adam Chambers is a poet, as well as an aspiring writer and filmmaker. His poetry is a reflection of his inner-self, and the influences that surround him. This collection of poems shadows his feelings of loneliness and heartache, yet they offer hope, a distinct flair for the romantic, and even sensuality.
