“…Good music, warm stories and silky vocals from jazz musicians and a beautiful vocalist…Kiki Ebsen leads the band in a vocal tapestry in telling her father’s historic career with the most talented musical performers I’ve ever heard…a wonderful and intimate show…that will warm your heart with passion and love.” - ~~ Lorenzo Marchessi — The Geek Authority
Kiki Ebsen performed in Cambria last November as part of Steve Key's Joni Mitchell Tribute. She now returns to The Cambria Center for the Arts with her own production called "My Buddy, The Other Side of Oz". Having recently completed a four week residency at The El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, this exciting new cabaret-style jazz show features Kiki on vocals and storytelling backed by seasoned jazz pianist Jeff Colella and acoustic bassist, Chris Colangelo.
The show will features stories about her father's amazing career in show business with songs from the Great American Songbook, recorded originally on her critically acclaimed, "Scarecrow Sessions" CD. She released that CD Father's Day 2014 and each song sparks a different part of her father's life and career. The show is further augmented by pictures and nostalgic video clips from her family archives.
"My Buddy, The Other Side of Oz" is a historical look back, with a personal touch, at an American icon that brought so many smiles to people's faces. Family friendly. No age limit.
