|Dessert and Song & Dinner and Song
Perfect for weeknights. 10-25 guests for a yummy dessert-table grazing. Or 8-12 guests for a delicious, casual dinner. The dessert or dinner is followed by a 40-45 minute performance, up close and personal, for you and your guests in your living room. Everyone gets chat time with the artist, and the donations ($10 per guest) help the artist make some travel money on an off night. Check out this one-page overview and 2-minute video !
