When the Sebastiani Theatre’s Roger Rhoten calls, Sonoma Valley’s performance community responds. On Friday, November 17, a huge roster of local musicians, entertainers and at least one belly dancer convene for “Vaudeville Fundraiser: An Old Time Variety Show,” a benefit for fire disaster victims.

Acts include: Stephanie Ozer, jazz pianist, vocalist Jeff “The Last Crooner” Gilbert with pianist Earl Blue; John Burdick, blues musician, John & Laura Benward, musician and vocalist; and Tobias, from The Traveling Spectacular, with Magic & Other Oddities.
More?
