Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas: Mark Nadler




There are just a handful of Christmas songs that I really like, and this is one of my favorites. It was written by Hugh Martin and introduced by Judy Garland in the 1944 film, Meet Me In St. Louis. The effervescent Mark Nadler sung this heartfelt version Sunday at David Kenney’s Everything Old Is New Again—Live Holiday Special, and brought the concert to a rousing close.

David has a weekly program Sundays, 9pm, on WBAI 99.5 FM NYC radio. You can hear the recording of the complete show rebroadcast on David’s show December 25th. The wonderful performers included cabaret stalwarts KT Sullivan, Barbara Fasano and Eric Comstock, Beat Kaestli, Karen Oberlin, Frank Dain (the Cabaret Scenes magazine producer returning to his singing roots!), the awesome Gabrielle Stravelli, and Tex Arnold accompanying on piano.

“Hi-Dee, Hi-Dee, Hi-Dee-Hi”: Mark Nadler




The exuberant Mark Nadler wants nothing more than to entertain the pants off his audience, and entertain indeed he does. Nadler’s singing and piano-playing showmanship brought down the house last week at the Metropolitan Room’s Everything Old is New Again Live cabaret event, with his rendition of the Cab Calloway standard.

Each month at Everything Old Is New Again Live, David Kenney and co-producers Frank Dain and Cabaret Scenes Magazine present a cornucopia of delights for their audience. This month, the line-up included not only Mark Nadler, but the awesome talents of Baby Jane Dexter, Jeff Harnar, Terri Klausner, Marieann Meringolo, Kim David Smith, Ty Stephens, and Carol Woods.

David’s show can be heard on Sunday nights from 9-11pm on WBAI 99.5 FM, NYC, simulcast on WBAI.org on the Internet. And David’s live cabaret show continues on the first Sunday of each month from the Metropolitan. The next live show will be on Sunday, June 5th. If you’re in the NYC area then, join him for some great entertainment.
