I hope I may entice you to attend, or if you are not in the New York
area personally, to invite some friends of yours to attend for
you..... I am singing at the Gershwin Hotel next Thursday September 18th.
Accompanying me shall be pianist Kenny Peagler and joining us as a
special guest will be the lovely Little Brooklyn, burlesque dancer
extroirdinaire from Starshine Burlesque! Here is a copy of the press
STOP THE PRESSES, UGLY NY MODEL & JAZZ DIVA TO SING AT THE GERSHWIN!!
Phat Man Dee, international model, jazz diva, comedic burlesque superstar, sings her little heart out as accompanied by the talented hands of Kenny Peagler on the Gershwin’s grand piano. Special guest Starshine Burlesque’s very own Little Brooklyn!! The performance is brought to you by Neke Carson.
On September 18, 2008 join us at 8 p.m. at The Gershwin Hotel located at 7 E 27th St. between 5th and Madison Avenues. Phat Man Dee has appeared in the last year with the Neverwas Haul (San Francisco) the Mousetrap (San Francisco) , Cyclecide (San Francisco), Foxy Moxy’s
Cabaret Risqué (North Carolina) and Peekaboo Review (Philadelphia) . Over the last decade she could have been seen touring with Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad (NYC) , Fat Bottomed Girls Burlesque (San Francisco), Bindlestiff Family Circus (NYC) and Chicken John’s Circus Ridiculous (San Francisco).
UGLY NY currently represents Phat Man Dee and her work has been seen internationally and on the Today show.
Of her performance, Nate Guidry of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette said she is a “…charismatic artist with a clear sense of musical purpose.” From WQED, Phillip Harris had this to say about the voice of Phat Man Dee, “Expressive and passionate, Phat Man Dee's sensual voice pulls
you in and takes you away to where the words no longer matter and you float along on pure emotion.”
Her accompanist Kenny Peagler is currently attending New England Conservatory of Music pursuing a graduate degree in music and spent much of last year touring Italy. He appeared on Mandee’s latest recording “Torch of Blue”.
I would really appreciate anyone you could send my way, it will be a wonderful night of music and dance and the venue is incredible.
Love, kisses and sweet fleshy hundred mile per hour hugs!
