Beginning with a wine tasting, the Astrid Merriman Cabaret & Cabernet Fete is a semi-annual evening of fine music and fine wine that kicks off the new season of Sammons Cabaret. The event is highlighted by a cabaret singer showcase with more than ten of the DFW area’s top vocalists. Each singer performs one song with several accompanied by the popular Larry Petty Combo.
The singers on August 24 include Jodi Crawford Wright, Sheran Goodspeed Keyton, Tony Hakim, Keron Jackson, Carolyn Lee Jones, Janelle Lutz, Angie McWhirter, Jason Mosher, Linda Petty, Truy Tran, and Lori Yeary.
Reserved tables of six guests cost $400. Admission for all guests includes the wine tasting, cabaret showcase, light appetizers, beer, soft drinks, coffee, water, and valet parking. Tables hosts also receive a one-year Sammons Cabaret membership at the Nite Club level, a gift certificate for two tickets to a Sammons Cabaret show, and a CD by a local cabaret artist.
A limited number of single tickets are available for $60 per person; admission includes the wine tasting, cabaret showcase, light appetizers, beer, soft drinks, coffee, water, and valet parking, but does not include a reserved table.
