Cabaret show at The Classic Wineseller

Written by 

art hammelSinger-songwriter James Hammel will present a cabaret story through song in “Celebrating a Collage of Life — a Journey Through Some of Life’s More Poignant Moments” at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at The Classic Wineseller in Waynesville.

Joining Hammel are pianist Steve Davidowski, bassist Zack Page and drummer Evan Martin. Hammel is a member of the prestigious Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs. His passion for singing and playing guitar began in Connecticut when he met jazz great Sal Salvador who introduced him to jazz guitar. Sal challenged Hammel that one day he would pursue a career in music. Hammel took a 20-year detour building and leading large companies. Along the way he wrote songs about his life experiences that are part of his repertoire today. He has been compared to Chet Baker and John Pizzarelli.

Hammel and his band have performed in New York City at venues such as The Metropolitan Room, Satalla, Julian’s, PM, and Kavehaz (The Gallery). He also has performed at the former CBGB’s Gallery and The Bitter End.

Tickets are $34.99 per person, which includes a four-course dinner.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
