Returning to Blue Strawberry from her nearly sold out show last year, Alexis Cole brings an all new show dedicated to the wonders and glories of New York.
Sunday in New York : Great Songs of a Great City A journey through the songs of the Great American Songbook and beyond, vocalist & pianist Alexis Cole and her trio celebrate the pulse of New York City through music.
