Here I have captured for the moment Seattle’s admired torch singer Julie Cascioppo on a construction site in Wallingford. SOON Julie is giving her last performance in Seattle before flying away to BALI. Here are the facts.
On Sept 11 – a Thursday – from 7 to 8:30 PM she will be performing at EGAN’S BALLARD HAM HOUSE, at 1707 Market St. in Ballard, of course. Telephone reservations can be made. Call 206-789-4624.
Julie will be singing ORIGINAL SONGS from her recent JACK STRAW PROJECT, as well as some of her HITS.
Here’s some boiler on Julie.
“In a world of boy toys and riot girls, Julie! Stands alone. And she also stands tall in the tradition of ‘red hot’ mamas like Sophie Tucker and Mae West. When not on one of her globe-trotting itineraries, Julie holds court variously at the Sorrento Hotel, the Pink Door and Eagans.
“From the sultry jazz singer of her recent CD, ‘SOMETHING COOL’ to the hilarious monologist of her one-woman show, I ENJOY BEING ABROAD (Performing so far in Paris, Istanbul, Hong Kong, Bangkok, and New Delhi.) Julie! Is always unpredictable.
“She can be soft as a cello or brassy as a French horn.”
