AboutFeaturing — Lady and the Rambler, Mandy Goodhandy and Sebastian Ellis
Sebastian Ellis is a singer-songwriter and pianist. His extensive repertoire covers a wide range of rock n' roll, jazz, blues, and country songs from the 1940s, '50s, and '60s, along with an impressive selection of original material. Mandy Goodhandy is a singer, comedian, and author who dips into her background of Music Theatre and Cabaret. Her choices of torch songs and ballads are counteracted with her funny style when speaking to the audience. The combination of the two is a perfect blend of styles that leave an audience feeling they just stepped back in time to vaudeville with a touch of Memphis Tennessee meets Broadway.
