    Gabrielle Stravelli at 54 Below

    7:00 pm-8:00 pm
    Feb/Tue/2022
    254 W 54th St. Cellar, NYC 10019

    Vocalist and songwriter Gabrielle Stravelli blends musical traditions with a modern, genre-bending sensibility. The rhythmic swing of jazz frames her original compositions while as an actor and storyteller she reinterprets the Great American Songbook as well as works by contemporary artists as varied as Willie Nelson, Chick Corea and John Fogerty. Unexpected, highly individual choices are her trademark.

    Gabrielle has toured the United States with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performing his masterwork Abyssinian: A Gospel Celebration. She was chosen by world-renowned jazz pianist Fred Hersch to premiere his song cycle, Rooms of Light, at Montclair University PAC.

    In 2020, she was honored with the Bistro Award for Outstanding Recording (“Pick Up My Pieces”); the 2019 Broadway World Cabaret Award for Best Jazz Vocalist; the 2015 MAC Award for Best Female Vocalist; and the 2015 Bistro Award as a Jazz Vocalist.

Please limit your selections to three or four minutes in length (including patter). Please also bring clear, complete charts for Mark to read. Flash photography is not allowed.

    Carole J. Bufford Poets And Pickers

    7:00 pm-8:00 pm
    Feb/Tue/2022
    254 W 54th St. Cellar, NYC 10019

    This performance will also be livestreamed. For tickets and more information, click here.

    Carole J. Bufford returns to the Feinstein’s/54 Below stage for one night only with an all-new eclectic evening in song. The only theme is there is no theme… anything goes! With music that spans multiple decades and genres, Carole will bring her inimitable style to some of her favorite songs. Expect powerhouse vocals, fun stories behind the music, exciting and fresh takes on beloved songs, and a few discoveries of hidden gems. Featuring music made famous by Barbra Streisand, Wilson Pickett, Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Julie Andrews, Bessie Smith, Reba McEntire, Frank Sinatra, & Tina Turner.

    “The real thing: you know it when you see it…The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times

    Carole J. Bufford has become one of the most sought after performers on the American vintage pop and cabaret scene. Her shows, including speak easy. (featuring the Grammy Award-winning Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks), Come Together, and You Don’t Own Me, earned her rave reviews from The New York TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and The Times (UK). She currently tours with her solo shows as well as with symphonies all over the country. Carole is also the recipient of the Mabel Mercer Foundation’s Donald Smith Award and the recent Gold Medal winner of the American Traditions Vocal Competition.


    Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at any time.
