Cheryl Bentyne: Let’s Misbehave! An Evening of Cole Porter
Oh, darlings, have you heard the news? The inimitable Cheryl Bentyne of The Manhattan Transfer is back and ready to cause a commotion with her upcoming performance of “Let’s Misbehave.”
Miss Bentyne, a dame of impeccable taste, talent and with pipes that could charm the pants off the devil himself, is gracing The Purple Room with her presence once again. This siren of song is set to light up the stage with her upcoming tribute to the king of wit and romance, Cole Porter.
With a voice that drips with honey and a style that is pure sophistication, Cheryl brings to life the timeless melodies of Porter’s classics, from “Love For Sale” “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To,” and “So In Love,” She’s the perfect embodiment of the jazz age, a time when the music was smart and sultry, and the lyrics were clever and flirtatious. And let me tell you, my dears, with Cheryl at the mic, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into a smoky speakeasy and you just never know who’ll take you home.
Born and raised in the wilds of Seattle, Cheryl has been wooing audiences with her voice for as long as she can remember. She cut her teeth performing in local clubs and theaters, and soon enough, the world took notice. In 1979, she became a member of the Manhattan Transfer, a multi-GRAMMY winning vocal group that remains one of the most influential in the history of jazz. But make no mistake, this chanteuse is a star in her own right, with awards to prove it, and her upcoming show is not to be missed.
With a voice that’s as smooth as gin and a style that’s as sharp as a well-turned quip, Cheryl is the perfect entertainer for an evening of misbehavior. She’ll have you under her spell with every note she sings, and you’ll be hard-pressed to resist tapping your feet and swaying to the rhythm.
Accompanying Miss Bentyne will be her musical director, Josh Nelson. The jazz pianist has fingers as nimble as a cat burglar, with a touch that can make the ivories purr like a satisfied kitten. He plays with the kind of finesse that would make even the driest martini sing with delight.
So come along, won’t you? Let’s raise a glass to Cole Porter and let Cheryl Bentyne lead us down the path of sin and delight.
Let’s Misbehave. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
