San Francisco jazz singer Mychelle Colleary returns to the Bay Area

Following her critically acclaimed engagement at New York’s renowned Duplex Cabaret Theater, jazz singer Mychelle Colleary returns home to the San Francisco Bay Area for solo performances at Kelly’s of Alameda (1313 Park Street, Alameda, CA., Tel: 510 769-1011) on Thursday, December 11th at 8:30 PM and 10:00 PM. A 2003 MAC Award Nominee for Outstanding New York Female Debut, Ms. Colleary will sing a selection of jazz standards accompanied by KC Filson on piano. There is no cover charge.

Mychelle Colleary then makes her return to the Plush Room (940 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA., Tel: 415 855-2800) on Sunday, December 14th at 7:00 PM as part of the annual Shanti Teddy Care Benefit. Joining a cast that includes Samantha Samuels, Chris Dilley, Tim Hockenberry and Barry Lloyd, Ms. Colleary will perform highlights from her most recent New York show "Enter The November Nebula With Shirley Temple’s Evil Twin" accompanied by Gus Kambeitz on bass. The cover charge is $15 and a new teddy bear. All proceeds benefit the Shanti organization (www.shanti.org) and all teddy bears donated will be given to the children of the San Francisco General Hospital.

"This up-and-coming jazz artist put together a smart, sassy, and entirely entertaining show that just concluded a short run at The Duplex. The title suggests that she's a little cracked; her quirky sensibility brought a fresh perspective to familiar songs and took us down new roads that led to deliciously unfamiliar tunes." (Barbara and Scott Siegel, TheaterMania.com)

A California native, Mychelle Colleary now spends much of the year in New York City where she has delighted audiences and critics alike at top nightspots Don’t Tell Mama, Danny’s Skylight Room and the Duplex Cabaret Theater.

Mychelle Colleary’s most recent recording "After Hours At The Plush Room" was recorded live at the prestigious San Francisco music venue, audio samples from which can be heard at Ms. Colleary’s official website.
