Remember that time that the legendary Tom Jones performed not in a massive theatre but inside the 500 person maximum venue Bowery Ballroom?  I was there to capture all the action including this show highlight, a cover of Elvis Presley’s “One Night With You.”  Sir Tom talks a little bit about Elvis before the song starts so hear what he has to say by pressing play!

Happy Birthday, Elvis Presely.  Yes, I know he’s dead, but when in the hell will I get the chance to post this photo of Elvis that I took when I was recently in Las Vegas?  So how will you celebrate this day?  Tell us which Elvis songs are your favorites.  Do you like the vintage years, the come-back era or the puffy pill Elvis?

Video: Isengart sings Elvis!

On May 1, 2010, German cabaret singer Isengart and his band The Diplomats played a sold-out show at Joe’s Pub.  I’ve seen Isengart perform many times, and he’s truly amazing every time.  Tonight we were in for a special treat as this night marked Isengart’s first solo show at the legendary venue.  To make the night extra spectacular, Isengart sang from the songbook of the king – Elvis Presley!The singer has one of the most beautiful voices around and he changes the arrangements of songs from cabaret to new wave to gorgeous sweeping ballads that have been known to make grown people weep (and it happened again tonight.  I saw it!)  For those who have not had the chance of hearing Isengart, today is your lucky day.  Below, you’ll see a video clip of him singing “Heartbreak Hotel,” in German!  But before we get to that, he sang a big-band style version of “Hound Dog,” “Are You Lonesome Tonight” (in German), funky renditions of “A Little Less Conversation,” and “Jailhouse Rock,” plus gorgeous piano versions of “Love Me Tender” and “Unchained Melody.”

Isengart, are you lonesome tonight?

He changed outfits several times and jumped into the crowd to spread the love in the room.  Isengart is dripping with a sexy swagger and a fantastic body that he struts all over the stage.  Sadly for all of us single ladies, he is taken, but when he sings and looks into your eyes, he takes you to heaven in a way that no roll in the hay ever could.  He received well deserved thunderous applause after every song and he had to come back and do two encores as the screaming crowd would not let the show end.  When he finished his final number, he was carried off the stage and an announcement was made:  “The queen has left the building.”  Oh what a night!  Spotted in the crowd were New York legends Penny Arcade and Raven O.  Isengart let me know that the very popular “Foreign Affairs” will be starting up again soon and you’ll have to be quick on the draw for tickets as the show sells out week after week.

See some more pictures of the deliciously sexy Isengart as well as a video of him singing “Heartbreak Hotel” in German!
