“Mary Jo puts her heart and soul into a song. She really knows how to tell a story with honesty and passion. “— Sherri James Buxton, Jazz & Cabaret Singer, RCA’s “Sweet Talkin’ Guy”

Click here for Mary Jo’s “Midnine Cabaret” performance of songs and personal stories of her life in a music-loving 1960s family as told at the Connecticut Storytelling Festival, April, 2014:

“A mix of Bette Midler, Liza Minelli & Judy Garland all in one.” –Carol Birch, International Performer

And Listen and Watch her at the Colonial Theatre on YouTube:

Mary Jo sings with Sherri James Buxton & \”Cabaret to Go\”

Thrill to moving renditions of beloved ballads, uptempo tunes from Broadway and the Great American Songbook: “You Go to My Head,” “Sleepin’ Bee,” “I Thought About You”–Songs Sinatra, Garland, Arlen & company loved–You will, too! Mary Jo is a sensitive yet powerful singer as she interprets Great American Songbook standards.

View the Lakeville Arts Council Cabaret performance and see how to transform YOUR venue into this moveable feast of cabaret! (Volunteers & staff dressed in black and white, set up tables and chairs with chic black cloths, candles, and created a “bar” of “mocktails” named after local landmarks.) It was an amazing transformation of a community room. (This makes a fantastic fundraiser, too!) Or ask Maichack Arts to write you a grant to cover the cost.
