Description: Don't miss singer Ellen Kaye as she brings her trademark, unusual repertoire, and ebullient personality to the Metropolitan Room for two more evenings February 2nd at 7pm and February 29th at 7p. The shows feature music from her recently released albums, "Ice Wine: songs for Christmas & dark winter nights" and "3AM - the dogs, the milkman and me". With Musical Director and arranger, Ethan Fein and a hot band, Kaye navigates both the dark and lighter side of life, genre bending as she rips into material from the best of the 20th and 21st centuries' songwriters including: Annie Lennox, Dar Williams, Bruce Springsteen and Rickie Lee Jones among others. This dyed-in-the-wool New Yorker's sense of humor, irony and outrage was born in the nooks and crannies of The Russian Tea Room, which her family owned in its heyday from 1947 to 1996. Kaye works a showroom like she's at a party with old friends.
