Join us on Saturday, October 16, 2010 at 8:00PM for the opening concert of the Moonlight Jazz @The Kampong series, featuring the seductive music of jazz vocalist Michelle Manzo. This concert marks the beginning of the second season of Moonlight Jazz @ The Kampong, in the performance pavilion surrounded by the lush gardens of The Kampong.
Michelle Manzo has a powerhouse voice and great style, and, as Bob Belden put it, â€œShe is the only singer I know who can bridge the gap between Celia Cruz and Sarah Vaughan.â€
â€œIf you are looking for a place to enjoy an evening of fine live jazz with other aficionados, where atmosphere and style combine with superb acoustics, then come and experience the K Lounge, â€œ said Vivianne Swietelsky, Chair of the Moonlight Concert committee. â€œBoth artists and audience members have told me that they love the wonderful intimacy of the K Lounge and that no other venue in Miami can compare,â€ she added.
When asked about her upcoming engagement at the K Lounge, Ms. Manzo said, “I am thrilled to perform at the beautiful Kampong K Loungeâ€¦such a gorgeous setting, combined with jazz, will surely become an enchanting getaway. It will definitely be an evening to remember!”
Series sponsors are Steinway & Sons and GREY GOOSE Vodka. Seating is limited and by reservation only â€“ The K Lounge tickets are $75, which includes table seating and complimentary GREY GOOSE signature cocktails.
