HIGHLIGHTS OF PAST EVENTS AND PERFORMANCES 

                     JAZZ HEAVEN SERIES  (CAFE SOCIETY WHEN ENTERTAINERS MET)

Someone recently asked me what do I think makes my Jazz Heaven Series different from any other productions. After briefly thinking about I thought about all the research and time I spend looking for different ways to introduce each legends. I gather information from different resources and compose it into a biopic verse. I try to pick out some of the obscure moments being trials or triumphs that occurred in their lives or non-fictional history about the song and or songwriter. I like to think I bring them to life on stage. In addition, through extensive research I tried to recreate the scene that all of my audiences can visualize 
themselves as being there.
