SACHA'S SUPPER CLUB Sacha's Supper Club is a monthly dining, dancing, social and musical experience the second Thursday of each month, revisiting the elegance of a bygone era in an intimate historical setting at The Lafayette Hotel. An evening away and a step back in time to a sensual place where mystery and romance linger long after the music ends. With a range of seating options available we invite you to join us to experience the retro charm of old hollywood with Sacha's Supper Club for a magical soiree reviving the glitzy glory days of old scrapbooks. SACHA AFTER DARK Grammy Nominated International Singing Sensation Sacha delights audiences with her seductive vocals and 4 octave range singing convincingly in 10 languages as she takes you back to the golden age of hollywood with her entertaining show. Paired with San Diego's Finest Musicians, Sacha will also feature each month a touring artist to join the show. This months guest is Elin Melgarejo from Washington DC who toured Japan together with Sacha in 2009. www.simplysacha.com JONATHAN KARRANT Audiences have characterized Jonathan as a great interpreter of song, a storyteller, a singer who brings music and lyric alive. Some refer to Jonathan as an amazing song-stylist who sings from the American songbook, an entertainer of star quality. Others say he paints a picture, he presents a mood and captivates a room through song. Jazz Corner said "Karrant's voice is romantic without being cloying, warm but not forced" and "that he sings standards with an emotional weight that make it seem as if he had written the songs himself". He will tell you that he has an innate connection with music writers of the past, masters like Cole Porter (they share the same birthday), George Gershwin, Sammie Cahn, Julie Styne, Johnny Mercer, to mention a few. He will tell you that he has great respect for such giants as Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Etta James, Little Jimmy Scott, Nancy Wilson, Johnny Hartman. He will tell you that he loves people, loves connecting with other musicians and with his audience, and loves sharing time with those who also love to celebrate life and music. Jonathan's recent album "On and On" made it to number four in the All About Jazz charts. The album features such songs as "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" and "Doodlin'", as well as the title track, and was produced by Tyler Monks, with pianist Josh Nelson, bassist Rob Thorsen, guitarist Mark Shapiro, and drummer Duncan Moore. www.jonathankarrant.com SACHA'S BIG BAND Under the direction of Mister Mikan Zlatkovich the band will be performing during and after the concert.
