I last saw Elaine Dame at the Cape Cod Room in the Drake Hotel, but I have seen her perform many times. Elaine is always, always a great time. Her voice is sublime, her choice of material is golden, but perhaps best of all is basking in the joy she radiates when she performs.
Elaine also has a way of "reading the room." Depending on her audience and the venue, I have seen her range from sophisticated to bawdy; from elegant to raucous; from emotionally moving to silly.
Elaine Dame has exquisite taste in musicians as well. I've purchased her CD for myself, and enjoyed it so much I have bought more to give to friends and family. Everyone I have brought along with me to one of her performances at Katerina's, Pops for Champagne, or other venues have always enjoyed her performances very much.
I highly recommend her as the consummate professional performer.
