“[Kai] is the whole package from head to toe” - Jazzwise Magazine
There’s a street in New York City where all the music was made. You wanted a song? You went to Tin Pan Alley. Scores of composers and lyricists wrote some of the most famous melodies imaginable and created what most of us recognise as THE jazz standards of today. Join acclaimed American singer Kai Hoffman and her fantastic musicians for “A Trip to Tin Pan Alley” with songs by George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Dorothy Fields, Fats Waller, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, Johnny Mercer, Richard Rodgers and more. Cheaper than a plane ticket and guaranteed to keep Stormy Weather at bay, this show is Easy to Love!
