Talented Vocalists Shana Bousard and Sally Jo Bannow to perform new show focusing on friendship – presented by Arts Council of the North Valley
SCOTTSDALE – Euripides said “One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives” – a quote that still rings true today, especially for jazz and pop vocalists Shana Bousard and Sally Jo Bannow. The long-time friends and professional singers will perform from 3 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 24 at the new “Hey Old Friend” Cabaret & Cake Show. Presented by the non-profit Arts Council of the North Valley (ACNV), the show takes place at a new venue for ACNV in the Homestead Community Center at DC Ranch, 18600 N. 98th in North Scottsdale.
Kenda Newbury, ACNV performing arts chair and a north Scottsdale resident, said the event is the sixth in a series of “Cabaret & Cake” shows, each featuring new performers and music.
“Treat your friends and family to the sultry sounds of Jazz and the Best of Broadway in favorite songs in which Shana and Sally Jo team up with the renowned piano talents of Joe Bousard. Immerse yourself in an afternoon of vocal delight and humor while enjoying delicious coffee and cake, which are included,” Newbury said.
Bousard, of Anthem, and Bannow, of north Phoenix, have been friends for 13 years. The two will perform songs about friendship and the trials and triumphs of the female spirit: a few songs from the program may include Hey Old Friend, Sisters, Gorgeous, and Cause I'm a Woman.
Tickets for the “Hey Old Friend” Cabaret & Cake Show are $10 for seniors (age 65 and older) and students; and $15 for adults and include coffee and cake. Tickets are available at the door or can be purchased online at www.ACNV.org or by calling 623-516-2268, extension 4.
