Come to the Cabaret at Headhunters

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What good is sitting alone in your room?
Come hear the music play.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to Headhunters Friday nights.

Come taste the wine,
Come hear the band.
Come blow your horn,
Start celebrating;
Right this way,

Your table’s waiting at Headhunters.

Jim Jordan, pianist and Gayiel Von, Cabaret singer create a great Cabaret show at Headhunters from 7pm-9pm each Friday.

Both are pros, so you’re guaranteed to enjoy it!

A little background of the performers:

Gayiel Von, singer, is a self-proclaimed Renaissance Woman.
She says she’s been "singing for her supper" for almost 40 years and is going strong.
Von has sung with Nancy Wilson, been accompanied by Michael Feinstein and sang back-up for Barbra’s West Coast "Timeless Tour."

She says she’s "sang Gospel with Ben Vereen,, played a weekly game of poker with George Carlin, worked with Bob Hope, Milton Berle, Jackie Mason, Red Buttons and the Ink Spots."
And, she was honored to sing at the Biltmore Hotel for their annual Martin Luther King Breakfast. Seated directly in front of her was Coretta Scott King.

Von was named the number 1 West Coast Cabaret Artist. (Andrea Marcovicchi represented the East Coast)

The Los Angeles Times  did a great article on her earlier in her career. Worth a read.

She’s great at working the crowd!

Besides singing Cabaret, she is a performance coach.

After high school, he began performing professional music playing for theatre productions, recording sessions and live events.

Jordan began teaching for the Yamaha organ company in Fort Wayne Indiana at the age of 21.

He began his career in Music Ministry in 1981 and in 1995 he left that and began a new career with Rodgers Instrument Company a division of Roland Corporation demonstrating, playing concerts and teaching workshops on digital, pipe and combination organs all across North America.

Jordan continues his association with the Rodgers Instrument Company today on a consulting basis.

He recently began as Music Director at Pioneer Congregational United Church of Christ in Sacramento.
Jordan hosts Sacramento’s only Piano Bar at Headhunters Tuesday nights and also plays for local live theatre and musical events.
He teaches private piano, organ and voice.

Jordan lives with his partner in South Sacramento.

No use permitting
some prophet of doom
To wipe every smile away.
Come hear the music play.
Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
Come to the Cabaret!
