A Joyful Evening of Songs at “G. Scott Lacy’s Christmas Songs.
A delighted evening of wonderful Christmas songs happened at San Francisco’s newest cabaret Society Cabaret on December 20th. G. Scott Lacy at the piano who has been called “a modern day Cole Porter” by Cabaret Confessional entertained the audience with wonderful Christmas songs such as “Mistletoe and Holly” It’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas” and “I Love Christmas Most of All” with his soft crooning voice.
Lacy introduced his guest stars Molly Mahoney and Shannon Wolfe known as Sophisticated Ladies to sing with their crowd pleasing voices a series of Christmas songs. These very talented singers graduated from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music eighteen months ago and are making a name for themselves playing at various clubs here in the city. The ladies sing songs from the Art Deco and Hollywood’s silver screen, the tunes of Tin Pan Alley as well as rarely heard jazz gems.
”The Sophisticated Ladies” had thematic resonance when singing songs such as “Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe” with new words to suit the San Francisco MUNI system and a new version just for San Francisco to the melody of “Let It Snow”. Since our fair city rarely sees snow it was changed to “Let it Fog”. (“we will have some egg nog”)
Shannon Wolfe gave a genuine rendition of “Moonlight in Vermont” and a sensual interpretation of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with Lacy joining in the song.
Other highlights were Molly Mahoney who did a warm reading of the Judy Garland’s song “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. Scott Lacy and the ladies sang a Hawaiian Christmas song “Mela Kalikimaka” which means “Merry Christmas” in Hawaiian. Lacy ended the performance with Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas”.
