THE PEOPLE YOU SHOULD KNOW SERIES OR AN OPEN MIC “IDOL” TALENT CONTEST

THE PEOPLE YOU SHOULD KNOW SERIES OR AN OPEN MIC “IDOL” TALENT CONTEST

The People You Should Know started when I began to review. As I found incredible new talents, I would produce a show featuring 3 people as a way of presenting them to the New York City Cabaret/Jazz community. Do you have talented locals? Why not let Matsuki Productions come into your home town Theater Group; Performance Center; Senior Center; Children’s Community Center; Church or venue and produce a local “Idol” type talent show which will culminate in a full show and with the prize winner being offered a spot in one of The People You Should Know shows in New York City or a 1 hour show at your venue!
SIRENS OF SWING…AND OTHER REASONS FOR ALARM!

SIRENS OF SWING…AND OTHER REASONS FOR ALARM!

Take two sultry, sexy, multi-award winning, funny ladies. Add amazing voices (if we do say so ourselves!), interpretations, heart and soul - and a dash of spit and vinegar! Shake well (very, very well). Et Voila! You get Laurie Krauz and Sue Matsuki...two sirens that will move and groove your venue right out of their seats! This show can also be built to your specific venues needs from our collective Music Lists of over 500 songs. It is a funny, jazzy evening in tribute to the legendary Sirens of Swing - Ella, Sarah, Carmen, Peggy, Betty just to name a few.
IT’S US AGAIN…A TRIBUTE TO STEVE & EYDIE

IT’S US AGAIN…A TRIBUTE TO STEVE & EYDIE

Like Steve, Edd Clark is from a more legit singing background and like Eydie, Sue Matsuki is a little bit jazzier so this show was a no brainer for this singing team. This show books with a trio that feels like a big band but can also come to your venue with just piano. It features many of Steve & Eydie’s biggest hits and swinging duets like: "If He Walked into my Life"; "I Gotta Be Me"; "This Could Be the Start of Something Big" and "Bei Mir Bist du Shon". Do you have any Steve & Eydie favorites? Just ask and we would be happy to include those songs in the show.
