Jazz, Broadway and ‘60s pop takes the stage Thursdays with Sharon Sills. 

“Who needs a day off,” laughs Holmes who purchased the historic cabaret in 2015 and restored it to its full mid-century modern glamour. “During the darkest days of COVID we wondered when-and-if we’d ever open again. Now, through the generosity and support of our loyal audience, we’re bursting at our calendar seams. We couldn’t be happier to be peddling fast.”

The rest of November is just as hot: Friday & Saturday, November 12 & 13 it’s a true “sister act” with Ann Hampton Callaway and Liz Callaway in “Sibling Revelry”. Then, for three performances, Thursday, Friday & Saturday, November 19, 20 & 21 it’s the one-and-only Marilyn Maye. Friday, November 26Scot Bruce’s  “Blue Suede Christmas” is an Elvis show like none other. And, of course, every Sunday it’s “The Judy Show!” with Holiday guise, “Judy’s Old Fashioned Christmas”decking the halls starting November 28. Not one to skimp on a celebration, on Thanksgiving Day, the Purple Room is offering a special dinner with traditional fare to warm your hearts with a side of hot jazz from the Mark Kahny Trio.

Another highlight – for one show only on Saturday, November 27 – is the suave and elegant Jonathan Karrant with his show “Lush Life” featuring classics from the Great American Songbook,” Holmes notes. “Not only performing songs from the golden age of music,  Jonathan puts his fresh and jazzy twist on tunes made popular in the ‘70s and ‘80s.”

Some of the selections for the evening on November 27 will be from Jonathan’s newest album Shadows Fall, which was released this year. It reached # 4 on the iTunes Jazz Charts plus # 2 on the American Community Radio Charts. Jonathan’s warm, rich voice soulfully wraps around and pulls the listener into the lyric. At the same time you’re sure to get a kick out of his charming quick wit and humor.

“Indeed, we have much for which to be thankful thisHoliday Season,” Holmes sums up. “On behalf of everyone at the Purple Room – front of house, back of house, kitchen, onstage and backstage, thank you for your support. We’ll see you at the bar.”
