Kim Gordon
Gordon, who has a three-octave range, reaches back to a 1930s tune one moment and then forward again to a beautiful avant-garde piece, bouncing from Kander and Ebb, Bock and Harnick, Lerner and Loewe, Stephen Sondheim and Jerry Herman to Michel Legrand and Jason Robert Brown. With a pure, bell-like voice and theatrical gravitas she makes every song tell a story – some deep and moving, others lighthearted or sultry – and makes a strong interpersonal connection with her audience.
Kim Gordon: Music With Heart is a sharp New York-style cabaret with a band that really cooks. Grammy-nominee Tim Mayer on sax, leader of the Paradise Big Band, Joe Dallas on bass, Hal Howland who is unsurpassed on drums, and masterful pianists James King and Ann McFarland bring their own exceptional talents to the stage. And to round out this fun evening, stay and party with champagne and dessert following the cabaret in the theater.
A Key West favorite, Gordon is recognized for having raised and donated more than a half-million dollars to date for individuals and nonprofits throughout the Keys that are in need, often through concert performances, which has earned her a lifetime achievement award and unsung hero award, among others. Proceeds from this new cabaret benefit the Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys, which provides financial assistance to members of the Keys community who are undergoing treatment for cancer. And it is the first concert under the banner of Gordon’s new nonprofit organization Music With Heart, which raises funds through music and the arts to help people in need in the Florida Keys.
