“[Shapiro is] a scene stealer, not just with his singing but his humor.” – The Seattle Times

A once-in-a-lifetime pairing in an intimate club setting for Ovations audiences only, the charismatic Rizo returns with her very, very special guest Ari Shapiro. A provocateur with a razor sharp wit, Grammy Award-winner Rizo transforms cabaret standards and pop hits into soulful music experiences. Meanwhile Shapiro, known to NPR audiences and fans of Pink Martini, is the consummate crooner who appears to simply glide across the stage. Rizo’s repertoire stretches from Peggy Lee and Edith Piaf to Bruce Springsteen and the Talking Heads. Her signature mix of sophistication, brazen banter and luscious vocals leave audiences wanting more. The Evening Standard advices “Hold onto your socks or Rizo will knock them off.” The evening will be hosted by comedienne and auctioneer extraordinaire, Christine O’Leary. With three megawatt performers, let’s see who steals the scene.

 

A formidable belter who can sustain phrases and notes even when sprawled on her back on a piano and scissoring her legs.” –  The New York Times
