Seattle singer/comedian Lisa Koch puts on her semi-annual Birthday Bash at the Triple Door Sunday February 9, featuring hilarious Texas comedian Vickie Shaw, twisted pianist Roxanna Ward, and a host of special guests. Snort-inducing comedy, fabulous music and surprise appearances for a jam-packed evening of tunes and laughs!
Lisa’s talented pals often pop by for this Bash, so there’s no telling who will wander onstage for this wonderfully spontaneous jam. The confirmed lineup includes: Jen Todd (3 Track Mind, Laura Love Band), Mel Watson (Fruit, 100th Monkey Records), Peggy Platt (Dos Fallopia, “Ham for the Holidays”), Larry Murante (award winning singer-songwriter), David Koch (Cabaret de Paris, Seattle Rep), Linda Severt (Laura Love Band, Juggletunes), Ken Boynton and Anna Lauris (ACT, Annaken), Eric Lane Barnes (SMC, Captain Smartypants), and Karyn Schwartz (singer extraordinaire).
Texan Vickie Shaw is a recovering SOB (Southern Baptist), and has raised three kids as an out lesbian mother. Vickie is a regular on Olivia Cruises, and has been seen on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, LOGO, Showtime, and in the film Laughing Matters More.
Cabaret-comic Roxanna Ward hails from Laguna Beach, California, and her engaging blend of piano bar and comedy caused one reviewer to observe, “It’s as if Bette Midler and Steve Allen had a love child.” Ward is a mom, a teacher, a regular performer on Olivia Cruises, and she penned the R&B single “Remember Who You Are” (Phyllis Hyman, Suede).
Koch is best known for her work with loony Seattle sketch-comedy duo, Dos Fallopia (“Ham for the Holidays”), cult quartet Venus Envy (“I’ll Be A Homo For Xmas”), and Seattle cabaret (“The Carpeters: Uncomfortably Close To You”). She has been featured on Olivia, LOGO, is the composer of Off-Broadway musical “27, Rue de Fleurus,” and has actually had one of her songs sampled by Jay-Z.
