Thursday, August 14 – Roger Schmelzer Performing!
One of our most popular entertainers, Indianapolis native Roger Schmelzer brings a crisp, fresh sound to neglected pop classics and underperformed cabaret gems. His debut CD, "About Now" was described by WFYI-FM as "Chock-full of the sorts of clever lyrics and lush arrangements that characterize songs for intimate settings from the last century to today." About Now has received airplay throughout the United States as well as on radio stations in Australia, New Zealand and the Netherlands.

Date Night, Saturday, August 16 – Toni Tolliver Performing!

A veteran of the stage, Toni Tolliver has been performing for over 20 years. She began her career at the Indiana University School of Music, starring in several main-stage musical theatre productions, and has performed at both The Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall. However, it was her tenure with IU's Singing Hoosiers, where she consequently met Sean Baker that truly began the expansion of her repertoire. She has continued to perform with Mr. Baker through the years, most recently as the Lead Female Vocalist with Indianapolis' own Four Sexes. From Jazz and R&B to Rock, Broadway, and Country, Ms. Tolliver changes styles as effortlessly as one changes clothes, and is a true "Connoisseur" of American Popular Music!
