Too Marvelous!


Too Marvelous for Words

Too Marvelous for Words

Too Marvelous for Words: A Celebration of the Nat “King” Cole Trio” is a fun and swingin’ journey into the early days of Nat King Cole.  Before his big hits such as “The Christmas Song” and “Mona Lisa” that many remember being performed standing in front of the orchestra, Nat was recording and playing (from the piano bench!) some of the most influential music of the day, leaving an impact not only on an array of singers but on pianists such as Oscar Peterson and Ahmad Jamal. Drawing on his experience as both an actor and a singer/pianist, Peter Smith (creator) effortlessly weaves in stories from this period in Nat King Cole’s life as they relate to the song selections, creating an evening that is fun, informative and will leave you tapping your feet, and pondering some fascinating tidbits from Nat’s life. All Too Marvelous for Words will be performing on Saturday April 2nd at 7pm. This amazing performance is the last of the Music Hall Concert Series, sponsored by IBM.

“We are very excited to bring this musical trip down memory lane to the Firehouse. The performers are outstandingly talented in their own right. Then you add Nat’s Music on top of it and it’s a dream come true. You cannot really afford to miss this show,” said Naima Kradjian Goodwill Theatre CEO.

Christine Lavin & Don White Visit!


Leave your worries at the doorstep and join Christine Lavin and Don White as they present a night of comedy unlike any other, The Funny Side of the Street: A Night of Brighter Laughter. This dynamic duo knows how to create social comedy out of everyday life scenarios. The best way to sum up Don and Christine would be the Sunday Funnies coming to life on stage.  Don White and Christine Lavin will be at The Schorr Family Firehouse Stage on Friday January 8, 2016. The Funny Side Of The Street is part of the Big Apple Comedy Club Series sponsored by Bates Troy and Visions Federal Credit Union and is underwritten by the Schorr Family.

Christine Lavin

Christine Lavin

Since emerging from the NYC singer/songwriter scene in the late 1980s, (along with Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, John Gorka, etc), Lavin quickly established herself as an entertaining tour de force.  Quick on her feet, witty, insightful, engaging, she remains one of the most popular and respected performers in the genre.

Christine has also been at the forefront of finding and promoting extraordinary new talent.  She founded a songwriter’s retreat on Martha’s Vineyard, the On a Winter’s (and Summer’s) Night tours), The Four Bitchin’ Babes, Laugh tracks among many other projects, in the process releasing more than 10 compilations CDs, as well as more than 20 of her own.


Don White

Her co-conspirator, Don White, is the latest artist that Christine has championed.  “He’s such an original; I call him sometimes a ‘blue collar intellectual,’” Lavin says. “Don has extremely high standards when it comes to what he does onstage. And he hits a grand slam every time. The first time we worked together he opened for me and it’s the only time in my entire career that I opened with a ballad because he was so funny, the audience was so laughed out.

“It doesn’t sound like a folk concert, it sounds like a comedy concert,” says White of his laughter-inducing co-bills with Lavin. “We rehearse and we rehearse and then inevitably, she’ll throw something at me that I have no idea about, with a mischievous grin that lets me know she’s been thinking about it all afternoon. Just to see what will happen. And she’s taught me to do the same.”

Audiences are looking for something fun, fresh, smart, and intriguing as well as thoughtful:  On the Funny Side of the Street does just that.

Ladies of Laughter Return!


ladiesoflaughternyc_LREveryone needs a good laugh every now and then, especially with the seasons changing and the temperature dropping. The outdoors can get depressing but with the right dose of laughter anyone can fight off the negative effects of cold weather! Did you know that frequent whole hearted laughter helps the body fight off harmful diseases?  With the seasons changing illness is more prominent so it’s time to start your laughing regimen. Laughing has also been proven to be a good work out; it tightens your abdomen and stomach. So if you have been putting off going to the gym or feeling under the weather laugh out loud with us on Friday November 6th at 7pm for the Ladies of Laughter standup comedy, part of the Big Apple Comedy Club Series, sponsored by Bates Troy and Visions Federal Credit Union; underwritten by the Schorr Family.

 “Both Comediennes have performed for our audiences here and were very well received,” says Naima Kradjian. “We are really excited to have Chris Rich and Leighann Lord back at the Firehouse.”


Chris Rich

Chris Rich – As a result of winning the Ladies of Laughter Contest, held at Caesar’s Atlantic City Casino, Chris was given a long-running spot on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. She’s also appeared as a featured comedian on ABC’s The View and on The Lifetime Network. She’s worked with Jerry Seinfeld, Sherman Hemsley, Joy Behar, Gilbert Gottfried, Roseanne, and Tony Danza, to name a few. Her performing career started, however, as a theatrical “triple-threat”: an actress, singer, and dancer in an endless stream of drama, opera, improvisational theater, and musicals: “I did ‘Oklahoma’ so many times I qualified for Farm Aid.” Those years of study and training led to becoming part of a resident company at The Walnut Street Theatre, The Trenton Civic Opera, Bucks County Playhouse, and productions at The Actors’ Playhouse in NYC. Chris is returning to the Firehouse after her successful performance last season.


Leighann Lord

Leighann Lord – Smart, sexy, savvy, and funny, Leighann Lord’s “heads up humor” is stand-up comedy at its finest. Inspired by the brilliance of George Carlin, the smooth jazz style of Franklyn Ajaye, and the elegance of Rita Rudner, Leighann has crafted her own unique brand of Thinking Cap Comedy. It’s no wonder she received the NYC Black Comedy Award for “The Most Thought Provoking Black Female Comic.”  And for two consecutive years, Leighann was Harlem Week’s official comedian. (The only other comedian in Harlem Week’s history to earn that distinction was Richard Pryor.) Leighann has performed around the world. In London she appeared at The Comedy Store, and on the BBC show Blouse and Skirt (think Politically Incorrect meets BET). In The Netherlands, she was a guest on the popular late night talk show Raymann is Late! and The Comedy Factory.  A festival favorite, Leighann has been featured in the Trinidad, Montreal, Winnipeg, Halifax, Boston, Detroit and NYC Underground Comedy Festivals.  She also entertained U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia during Operation Enduring Freedom, as well as troops helping the Haitian earthquake relief effort (Operation Unified Response.)

In addition to her long list of comedy industry credentials, Leihann is the co-host of Star Talk Radio with Neil deGrasse Tyson. Leighann is also a returning comedian to the Ladies of Laughter.

Tickets for the Ladies of Laughter are $15. The Firehouse offers a 20% discount to veterans and teachers; however, discounts cannot be combined. Tickets can be purchased online at: or by calling the Box Office at (607) 772-2404, ext. 301.

Lorraine Bates Returns with Love & Laughs!


Lorraine Bates

Lorraine Bates

The Goodwill Theatre presents the Lorraine Bates Love and Laughs Comedy Cabaret on Sunday, October 25, at 2 pm at the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage in Johnson City. The Lorraine Bates Cabaret is part of the Big Apple Comedy Club Series sponsored by Bates Troy and Visions underwritten by the Schorr Family.

“Lorraine appeared at the Firehouse in 2011 singing folk, R&B, and standards. In this show she will add some comedy and looks forward to expanding her creativity. Lorraine brings her unique blend of wit and heart to her show and we are glad she has chosen our venue to showcase her work,” said Naima Kradjian, Goodwill Theatre CEO.

The multi-talented Lorraine Bates was inspired to start singing by a young man’s serenade when living in Texas. She soon found her own voice and began singing in El Paso.  Her family travels took her to many states: from Oregon to Alabama, from Illinois to West Virginia. However, the Big Apple was a constant lure for Lorraine. She made it to the New York with a natural gift for music. She began to study acting, singing, and dance. She taught herself how to play guitar, banjo and mandolin and furthered her career by grooming her talents with workshops from the National Academy of Popular Music and Songwriters’ Guild. Her classes led to many collaborations and styles of writing in jazz, blues, country and pop.

In performance, Lorraine captivates her audience with energy, warmth and enthusiasm.  She has performed internationally in France, Italy and Spain.

Another audience is equally important to Lorraine, who is committed to lifting the human spirit with song.  Lorraine performed for hospitalized AIDS patients with the Hearts and Voices program at a time when people with AIDS were greatly feared and alone. Continuing with the gift of volunteering, Lorraine also helped with The Covenant House, organization that helps homeless teenage moms rebuild their lives through group therapy, and training for job interviews.

Lorraine also takes pride in being an active member in many professional associations including Women in Music, BMI, The National Academy of Popular Music, Songwriters’ Guild and The Nashville Songwriters Association International of New York.

XPresso Love: Autumn in NY


Xpresso Love

Xpresso Love

Vocalist Ayana Del Valle and Pianist/Vocalist Laurence Elder blend their finely-honed talents & showmanship, creating a revitalizing new brew of music! While in the process of recording their “series of demos,” they appear on the music scene performing a variety of tunes, mainly but not limited to jazz, pop, and blues genres. Whether they’re performing original material or refreshing reinventions of popular classics, Xpresso Love has the right brew for you! Warm up at the Firehouse Sunday October 18th at 2pm, “Autumn in New York with Xpresso Love” is part of the Jazz Concert Series sponsored by Bates Troy.

Ayana Del Valle

Ayana Del Valle

Ayana Del Valle is a captivating and innovative singer/songwriter whose sweet and soulful vocals have been swingin’ NYC venues since she moved there from upstate NY three years ago. Rooted and educated in jazz, this puertorriquena infuses her keen sense for jazz improvisation with R&B, soul, pop, hip-hop, and Latin. It’s her passion and ability to thrive on the moment that support this unique combination of elements, making her music come to life and keeping audiences on their toes! Born and raised near the small city of Binghamton, NY, Ayana eagerly grew up listening to the cultured sounds of jazz, Latin-jazz, doo-wop, R&B, and pop, performing such music as a child for family and friends. Her genuine sound is much inspired by musical legends such as Mariah Carey, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Whitney Houston, and Eryka Badu to name a few. It was the Ella Fitzgerald CD her father gave her while in her teens that inspired her to sing jazz. Ayana’s professional music career was ignited while attending the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College.

Laurence Elder

Laurence Elder

Laurence Elder has swiftly established a strong musical presence in the wake of his sold-out CD release concert at the Van Dyke Café in Miami Beach. His fresh inspired blend of jazz, rock, blues and pop, along with his “triple threat” talents as a singer-songwriter-pianist, set his music apart as a vital original sound. Already a signed artist on ESC Records in Europe and in Japan on the P-Vine lable, Laurence has recorded with Grammy winners Paquito D’Rivera and Peter Erskine, who both appear as guests on his critically acclaimed debut album, “Surrounded.”

The Album was recently featured in JAZZIZ Magazine and the accompanying “JAZZIZ on disc” CD sampler, the arts and entertainment section of the Miami Herald, as well as receiving a four-star review in Modern Drummer Magazine. Recent performances include the new Arturo Sandoval Jazz Club, a Valentine’s Day show at the Deering Estate attended by over 2000 fans, and a concert opening for Al Dimeola, who has Laurence on his short list of favorite musicians.

Laurence’s background as a seasoned jazz pianist includes a Master’s Degree from the University of Miami’s prestigious music school, but on “Surrounded” his evolution as a singer-songwriter is more than apparent as he blurs the lines between genres. “Like Sting, Paul Simon, and Stevie Wonder, Laurence has the ability to go beyond jazz’s traditional boundaries,” says JAZZIZ Magazine owner and chief editor Michael Fagien, a big fan of the album.

While working on a second album, Laurence continues to share his music with the world. His band consists of some of the industry’s most sought after musicians, whose collective touring and recording credits include Tito Puente, Paquito D’Rivera, Ruben Blades, Chayenne, Juan Luis Guerra, and Nestor Torres, among many others.

The band for this performance includes:

Tony Godoy (trumpet)

Al Hamme (saxophone)

Mike Carbone (saxophone)

Chris Mann (trombone)

Joe Michaels (bass)

Marko Marcinko (percussion)

Based on the children’s book, Pinkalicious is a musical that is fun for all ages and teaches us that you really can have too much of a good thing.  Pinkalicious can’t stop eating pink cupcakes despite warnings from her parents. Her pink indulgence lands her at the doctor’s office with Pinkititis, an affliction that turns her pink from head to toe – a dream come true for this pink loving enthusiast. But when her hue goes too far, only Pinkalicious can figure out a way to get out of this predicament. The Firehouse will have lots of pink merchandise and delicious pink delectables for sale. Attendees are encouraged to wear… you guessed it PINK! Come see Pinkalicious on Saturday October 17th, at 11:00 am, 2:00 pm, and 5:00 pmPinkalicious is part of the Just 4 Fun Series and is sponsored by Bob Car 2.0 Printing and Mailing and Modern Marketing Concepts.

His musical adaptation of Gogol’s tragicomic short story The Overcoat (Book and Lyrics) has been presented in London at the Bridewell Theatre, Barrington Stage Company and The New York International Fringe Festival. John has also been commissioned to write several young audience musicals, including The Bully at Vital Theatre, NY and The Invention Of Edison at Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera. John Gregor lives in New York and holds an MFA in musical theatre writing from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and a degree in musical theatre from Emerson College.

Elizabeth Kann & Victoria Kann (Book & Lyrics) are co-authors of the New York Times best-selling children’s picture books PINKALICIOUS (HarperCollins, 2006) and PURPLICIOUS (HarperCollins, 2007) that Victoria also illustrated.
