"Don't Tell Mamma-Barbetta-Fun for Tourists and Natives in NYC"

On October 14th I attended a fun evening of Music and Comedy at Don't Tell Mama, a multi-function club/cabaret/bar at 343 West 46th Street in NYC. The evening, produced by Michael Martinez, was a showcase and variety show featuring Adam Kee, recording artsist Kristin Trotta, and singer/songwriter Andrea Dee. Comedian Matt Florio acted as an able host throughout the evening.

My favorite performer was the sultry songstress, Kristin Trotta, whose influences included Billie Holiday. The soulful singer looks pretty and sings with a throaty, urgency. She won over her audience with her sophisticated, soulful, songs. Also talented and popular with the audience was singer/songwriter Andrea Dee, whose intimate, personal songs borrow elements from pop, soul, and jazz.

Adam Kee commanded the stage with a polished presence as an actor and singer who completed his M.F.A. in Acting in 2007 (Actors Studio Drama School/New School for Drama). Adam sang a number of songs from Stephen Sondheim. The best moment for me was after Adam asked my friend, telvision hostess Cognac Wellerlane, to turn off her video camera. She said: "I have a television show" to which Adam replied: "Then you can keep it on." But Ms. Wellerlane quickly got Adam to repeat: "you're watching Cognac's Corner Dot TV dahling") as well. You really had to be there to appreciate how she did was pretty funny!

...and speaking of funny -- comedian Matt Florio did his best to keep the evening moving smoothly. Matt co-founded two of New Jersey's most successful stand up shows, "Stand Up Parmesan" and "Newark Comedy Show" He is currently in pre-production of a television show he created and recently co-founded Comedy Doctors . Inc. which produces stand up comedy shows to raise money for worthy charities.

Don't Tell Mama is a fun place to spend an evening with friends whether you're a native New Yorker or just visintg. Check their schedule at 343 West 46th Street between 8th and 9th Aves in NYC just steps from Times Square. - Advice Sisters


Still working on that hot first release.



Straight out of New School in Manhattan, Kristin Trotta is a solo performer on the New York music scene. Blonde, sassy, and stylish, with a set of pipes to back it up, she is a talent to be reckoned with. Kristin’s powerful vocal range and signature soulful sound make live performance her forte. Equally at home belting Aretha blues as she is crooning Christina ballads, Kristin impresses with her vocal versatility and intensity. In short, the girl can sing.

Kristin is classically trained in both piano and voice. She got her start performing at an early age in local musical theater productions in her hometown of Peabody, MA.

Kristin completed her BFA in jazz vocals at New School University in New York City. She currently lives and works in Manhattan, where she continues to hone her craft and make her mark on the New York music scene.
