Two Gypsy Kisses

(Due Zighi Baci)

One Tenor, One Accordionist, Hours of Memorable Music

Celebrating ten years of authentic European café music, Sheri Mignano Crawford and Michael Van Why have specialized in Italian and Neapolitan canzone, French chanson, and the American Songbook. Each concert exhibits artfully arranged vintage songs tied together by thematic coherence. Their most memorable concerts include their ever popular “Panini on a Croissant.” It offers a balanced fare of French and Italian. “Festa Della Vendemmia” revels in the annual harvesting of the grapes with the ripest, juiciest, most delicious, and savory songs from Italy’s and France’s musical vineyards. The most memorable concerts include “At the Movies” with Academy Award winning songs. A Vegas style “Rat Pack” tribute, a magical soirée of chanson with “Midnight in Paris,” and “Dolce Sera” at Coppola’s summer gazebo by the pool. The annual Mardi Gras show, Bastille Day concerts, the annual “Breakfast with Santa” concerts December’s Saturday mornings at Costeaux French Bakery, and “Canti Della Libertà” honoring the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification. The fun always accompanies the novelty themed concerts such as “Hookers ‘n’ Hooch,”  “Hot August Nights” (Italian Rock n Roll), “Gypsy Serenade” with its salute to Eastern European music, and special concerts honoring the immortal Edith Piaf.

We are proud to present “Kaleidoscopic Love” to complement this year’s Woodstock theme.
