Portland Ovations' Annual Benefit Bash with Lady Rizo featuring NPR's Ari Shapiro
A once-in-a-lifetime pairing in an intimate club setting for Ovations audiences only, the charismatic Lady Rizo returns with her very, very special guest Ari Shapiro.
A provocateur with a razor sharp wit, Grammy Award-winner Lady Rizo transforms cabaret standards and pop hits into soulful music experiences. Meanwhile Shapiro, known to NPR audiences and fans of Pink Martini, is the consummate crooner who appears to simply glide across the stage. Lady Rizo’s repertoire stretches from Peggy Lee and Edith Piaf to Bruce Springsteen and the Talking Heads. Her signature mix of sophistication, brazen banter and luscious vocals leave audiences wanting more. The Evening Standard advices “Hold onto your socks or Lady Rizo will knock them off.” The evening will be hosted by comedienne and auctioneer extraordinaire, Christine O’Leary. With three megawatt performers, let’s see who steals the scene.
