Singer/songwriter Nellie McKay performs April 22
Songs as joyful as they are subversive
The Washington Post
There is no other contemporary artistlet alone one so at home with jazz, pop, and torchlight standardswho so lethally combines the serious and the hilarious as Nellie McKay. Don't miss your chance to catch her in a rare West Coast appearance at Montalvo on Friday, April 22, at 8pm!
Featuring quick wit, keen insights, and brilliant musicality, McKay's songs have been featured in both movies and TV series. As adept on the ukulele as on the piano, she has been delighting New York audiences for years at cabaret venues including the Spiegeltent, Feinstein's 54 Below, and Joe's Pub. In 2006, she made her highly acclaimed Broadway debut as Polly Peachum in Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera.
