Melanie Stace returns to Birdland for the holidays !

Melanie Stace has appeared on stage and screen literally all over the world. Highlights’ include appearing on The Royal Variety Show in the presence of HRH The Prince Of Wales, head-lining at the world famous London Palladium, playing leading lady roles including: Polly Baker in the Tony Award winning musical Gershwin Musical Crazy For You, April in the Lawrence Olivier Award winning Tap musical Hot Shoe Shuffle, and Lola in Barry Manilow’s Copacabana on the West End. She has performed her show in London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Moscow, San Francisco and in New York in such legendary venues as Feinsteins at The Lowes Regency and Birdland: Jazz Corner Of The World. She has also headlined numerous times with her show "Melanie Stace Steppin ' Out With The BBC Big Band."

Her debut album, released in 2003, How Lucky, featured songs she much admired and had performed in Musical Theatre, and the album garnered some great reviews. Her second album, The Key To Me however, is in a completely different musical genre and all of the songs are original, written by Stace and her writing partner, Wayne Brown. Stace realized that this album would be personal, but in the writing and subsequent performing of the songs wasn’t prepared for the affect it would have on her. The songs have enabled her to express herself in a completely new way.

“A Night Like This” will feature some of her original songs, together with other songs from some of the writers who have influenced her including: Caro Emerald, James Taylor, Harry Connick Jnr, Billy Joel and the Late Leon Russell.
Melanie is thrilled to be returning to Birdland, a place she fell in love with, and has visited frequently since she re-located to the City almost exactly eight years ago.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear this voice ! In the words of one US Critic : “Stace possesses an extraordinarily powerful voice, with all the range and emotion to send shivers down your spine”.

Music Direction: Doug Oberhamer, with Dave Anthony (Drums), Alan Stevens-Hewitt (Bass), John Benthal (Guitar) and Matt Hong (Sax).
