Frank Silletti and daughter Ava Vukic return to Feinstein's at the Nikko to celebrate the release of their first CD, Yours and Mine - The Judy & Liza Effect. The "Judy and Liza effect" is the precise moment the climactic note of a Garland or Minnelli song, or even just a word or phrase, grabs you, holds you, and makes you want to break free from the ordinary and burst out in song. It has inspired generations to do exactly that. Frank has been under the influence since childhood and now Ava has the bug too. In this special performance and CD release, father and daughter honor the work of mother and daughter with performances of their iconic songs by Harold Arlen, Kander & Ebb, the Gershwins, Irving Berlin, Roger Edens, and others.
Elima consists of five individuals from five different backgrounds who play an eclectic range of music, from traditional and contemporary Hawaiian to pop-soul, R&B, and rock. The group combines superb vocals with the smooth beat of the cajón and the rhythmic energy of the bass for pleasing harmonies and melodies. All band members bring their own style of music to the group, so there's a little something for everyone in their shows. Their Feinstein's at the Nikko debut is a celebration of the release of their debut CD Thrive.
Singer-songwriter and Bay Area native Eve Marie Shahoian performs locally and nationally, and makes her Feinstein's at the Nikko debut to celebrates the recent release of her second CD Believe, which includes her interpretations of standards such as "Autumn Leaves," "My Mama Done Told Me," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "No More Blues." The East Bay Times praised Shahoian's "vocal ability to tackle each song with her pleasing style and flair." Submitted for consideration to the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, the CD also include a remix of her original song "Waiting for You," which was the recipient of an honorable mention for outstanding original song from Billboard.
Shahoian will be joined onstage by a top-shelf band including John R. Burr on piano and two-time Grammy Award-winning violinist Mads Tolling.

Star of such box office juggernauts as The Fly, Jurassic Park, and Independence Day, Jeff Goldblum is more than a talented actor. He's also an acclaimed jazz pianist. Goldblum and a band of friends and compatible musicians call themselves the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra (named after a family friend) and perform regularly at Los Angeles's Rockwell Table and Stage (the advice to play a weekly gig was given to him by Woody Allen). John Storie (guitar), James King (tenor saxophone), and Lorca Hart (drums) make up the band.
The group returns to Feinstein's at the Nikko following a sold-out engagement in 2015. Don't expect a staid musical recital; Goldblum's show is anything but that. The proceedings often feel extemporaneous, and Goldblum himself usually appears before the show starts as his own opening act, asking the audience movie trivia and true-or-false questions.
