Cabaret Confessions of an Eco-Diva

I recently played bass in Nomi Lyonn’s show at the Macha Theatre in West Hollywood, the third incarnation of her evolving cabaret performance that I’ve participated in. The previous two performances were at the M-Bar in Hollywood. I think one-woman shows are a real challenge to pull off, and Nomi did a great job. It helped that she chose some great music to weave the story of her political, yogic, and ecological obsessions into. She added two dancers to this performance, and I think they strengthened the show even more. I got to back up Ron Snyder, who is a wonderful accompanist, and drummer John Puhara helped carry us through. It’s not every day that you get to play in a fun & enjoyable performance like this one. Nomi plans to take the show to a variety of venues in Candada (she’s from Vancouver) and elsewhere.
