Wink: Songs with the Flirt Built In
Denver's exciting and diverse female singers come together for this night celebrating the fun, sexy and double-entendred music of the American songbook. Denver Public Library’s Fresh City Life plays host to this special event that highlights fine music and Denver’s most spectacular voices. When you hear Rosemary Clooney singing Too Old to Cut the Mustard and Mae West crooning A Guy What Takes His Time, you know both these ladies are telling two stories: the catchy song you’re listening to and the read-between-the-lines lyrics that might get you banned in Boston. As a matter of fact, West’s 1933 recording of A Guy What Takes His Time was banned in Boston for being too racy! It makes an encore appearance sung by Nancy Stohlman (of the group Kinky Mink) in this delightful concert featuring other cool songbirds: Marta Burton, Cora Vette, Auntie Dee Galloway, Marnie Ward, Elizabeth Caswell-Dyer and Jennifer Adams – backed up by lush and inventive instrumentals. A free concert, registration encouraged. Please register online http://denverlibrary.org/node/2094#wink or call 720-865-1206.
