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 January 25 include Linda Petty, Chimberly Byrom, Chris Cree, Jay Gardner, Keron Jackson, Carolyn Lee Jones, Sheran Goodspeed Keyton, Angie McWhorter, Heather Paterson, Audra Scott, Diana Sheehan, and Truy Tran.
Reserved tables of eight guests cost $500 and reserved tables of six cost $400.

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.
