What an exciting show is in store for you!  Al DeGregoris is back with a new CD and Lisa Engelken is making the trek from West Coast to East!  Music from BOTH amazing artists?  You better believe it!

Al's background is both wondrous and serene.  He gravitated to piano at 4, sax at 6, and had songs and his first band under his belt at 7!  By 12, he was a paid pro, insatiable for more learning and playing.  A source of pride in his native New York, Al received his Bachelor's in Music Merchandising - AND excelled in law at Hofstra University!  Straddling the legal and the musical highways, Al was determined to get involved in EVERY way.  So, he found the means to design his own production studio that made a splash.  Composing, recording, honing his skills on keys, and producing - well, let's just say that his multiple talents have paid off!  Al's third project, "All in Good Time", is based on something poignant that his beloved parents used to say.  Help in delivering the message: Nils, Jeff Lorber, Eric Marienthal, Chuck Loeb, and the late Ricky Lawson.

Like Al, this is Lisa's second visit - and she's ready to spread the news!  Not only about her big events on the East Coast, but also what ELSE she has up her sleeve.  This consummate artist is at full throttle ALWAYS; singing in Portuguese, Spanish, French and Italian - the culture and music of which she has swallowed WHOLE for years - even earning a fellowship to Italy to pursue studies.  Her operatic and theatrical training, the sextet and quintet that she co-founded in Washington, D.C., her award-winning performance in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" in San Francisco - did I mention how fascinating Lisa is?  The youngest of 13 children from Big Skies, Kansas has made a SPLASH internationally - to RAVE reviews!  "Little Warrior" tracks are on tap - join us!
