After successful performances at Blue Strawberry in St.Louis and Don’t Tell Mama in NYC, I’m delighted to be traveling to Chicago and performing at Davenport’s.
I sing and tell stories about the songs that “found me” for a reason, connecting
with significant times and events in my life; songs that range from “The Blizzard” by Judy Collins to a tweaked version of Cole Porter’s “My Heart Belongs to Daddy.”
I am fortunate to have worked with several award wining talents on this
show: LIna Koutrakos as director, the late Rick Jensen for the majority of the musical direction and arrangements, Patrick DeGennaro who graciously stepped in as musical director with the untimely passing of Rick Jensen, plus additional arrangements by Beckie Menzie and Gregory Toroian. I excited that for this show, Beckie Menzie will also accompany me on the piano.
“A born crooner, Brammeier used his voice beautifully….(he) delivered this rangy song without a hint of the vocal calisthenics it surely demanded of him. It simply flowed from his heart.” Katie McGrath, Cabaret HotSpot
“…a powerful and reassuring stage presence that makes us all want to listen and attend” Jim Dolan, Owner and Producer, Blue Strawberry, St. Louis, MO
“He has a light baritone with a rough-hewn touch that reminded me of some of the notable folk-rock singer/songwriters of the 1960s, such as Gordon Lightfoot and Cat Stevens (now known as Yusuf Islam).” Chuck Lavazzi, Critic for KDHX, St. Louis, MO and Cabaret Scenes Magazine
$20 Cover plus 2 drink minimum.

Ann Talman is a four-time Broadway veteran. In 1981 she landed the plum role in The Little Foxes playing Elizabeth Taylor’s daughter on Broadway. They remained friends for life. The Shadow of Her Smile, is directed by Bistro and MAC Award winners, Lina Koutrakos with musical direction by Alex Rybeck. The show is an evening of story and song about Ann and Elizabeth’s amazing bond, filled with hilarious and touching stories that only Ann can tell, woven with Broadway and Great American Songbook gems. Ann’s imitation of Elizabeth is so spot on, if you close your eyes, you’ll swear they’re together again!

Indian Trails Public Library District
In honor of Women‘s History Month, the Indian Trails Public Library District is hosting a free performance of HERstory: The 19th Amendment and the Power of the Vote on Sunday, March 19 at 3 PM.
Chicago cabaret artists Anita Kallen and Catherine Thomson celebrate – in song and HERstory – the rabble-rousing pioneers who won the right to vote for the women of America and those fighting to preserve it. With music by Sondheim, Lennon & McCartney, the Sherman Brothers, Parton, Schwartz, Porter, and others, Anita and Catherine weave in the story of women’s suffrage from second-class citizenship at the nation’s founding to the nail-biting final days in the fight for ratification of the 19th Amendment and then to present-day efforts to preserve and maximize the power of women voting.
Indian Trails Public Library, 355 Schoenbeck Rd., Wheeling, IL.
