Michelle DellaFave and Company will present a musical tale. In this song-filled tarradiddle, you will find Michelle playing a lovely young songbird who, because of too much pressure from those around her and a desire to be set free, decides to set her sights on distant lands far from home, hoping to escape the real world. Watching an Italian film noire, with a haunting sound track, that she just can’ seem to get out of her mind, she decides to make her way out of the city, solo no less, to find love and some interesting adventures south of the boarder.
The cast of course includes Michelle DellaFave, from the Dean Martin Show, who sang and danced with Dean Martin and while working with him, enjoyed his many antics for years. “He was so very funny,” claims Michelle. After all, how can anyone be serious singing with “The Golddiggers,” then onward and upward to become a lead singer of a four-gal troupe known as “The Dingaling Sisters,” performing weekly on his show. Eventually she was featured on Dean’s show as a solo singer.
Michelle has traveled across the country doing nightclubs to Equity plays. Now, settled in New York City, she just can’t stop singing. She is a soloist at St. Mark’s Church, and often sings patriotic songs for veteran events. Loving all genres, and with a father who was a drummer, that Latin beat has caught her feet. Michelle produced several albums and singles including “Cool Burn,” “Transformed,” and “Freedom Angel.” Her passion for supporting veterans began while performing with Bob Hope and his USO World Tours.
Happy to be returning to the stage at The Triad this time with the music and script penned by Carolyn Steinberg, also an outstanding musician on flute.
Playing the very debonair and very desirable male interest in “South To Brazil” is Dorian Lake. Vocalist, percussionist, composer and arranger, Dorian has broad experience in many styles, forms and genres of music.
On percussion is the talented Chacho Ramirez. Michelle brings bassist Michael O’Brien to the stage. On piano, and electric organ and jungle sounds… is Jason Yeager.
So it’s Thursday, March 5, 7pm why not go out after a long day, chill and have a few laughs and some great music with Michelle and Company as she goes South To Brazil. Sit back and enjoy your cocktail, with an eclectic mix of lively Latin beats and sweet love songs.
