"My Buddy: The Other Side of Oz” is a heartfelt cabaret-style jazz show featuring singer, pianist and storyteller Kiki Ebsen.

“If you enjoy witty storytelling, celebrity insider nostalgia and exquisite musical arrangements, then Kiki Ebsen’s My Buddy: The Other Side of Oz was custom made for you.” 
 ~Cabaret Scenes

Buddy Ebsen’s career spanned seven decades. Kiki, Buddy’s sixth daughter, shares a unique prospective on growing up in a show business family. Already fifty years old when Kiki was born, Buddy’ s musical dreams for his daughter were vastly different from the path she had chose for herself. That created a tension that separated them early on in her career as she went in search of her own voice. The ultimate reconnection at the end is inspiring and heartwarming. Though out the journey you’ll hear key stories about his ups and downs in entertainment and of course you will hear, in Buddy’s words, the story of what actually happened to him while filming “The Wizard of Oz.”

Backed by seasoned jazz musicians, the show features standards from the Great American Songbook. Recorded originally on her critically acclaimed, "Scarecrow Sessions" CD released on Father's Day 2014, each song sparks a different part of her father's life and career on stage and on screen. Further augmented by family pictures and nostalgic video clips, "My Buddy: The Other Side of Oz” takes historical and personal look back at an American icon that brought so many smiles to people's faces before he became a household name on The Beverly Hillbillies and Barnaby Jones. Family friendly. No age limit.
