Brian P. Kennedy serves as musical director for The Supper Club.
Pazakis and Wooley have partnered with The Federal Bar in North Hollywood to create a monthly cabaret night in which singers from Broadway, Off-Broadway, national tours, television and film gather to perform. The duo will also introduce a segment titled "Beautiful Disaster" in which two performance slots are reserved for patrons who want to put their name in for a chance to come on stage and sing. Immediately following the cabaret, The Supper Club will transform into an old-fashioned piano bar.
The Federal Bar is located at 5303 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood, CA. There is no cover charge or food/drink minimum, but reservations are encouraged. For reservations, click here.
