On Tuesday, November 1, 2011, I was surrounded by elegance...from the atmosphere of the venue to the performer on stage! You see, I was fortunate enough to attend Kim David Smith's triumphant return of his show "Misfit," (inspired by one of my favorite 80s cartoons "Jem and the Holograms") to Duane Park in NYC (157 Duane Street between West Broadway & Hudson). From the moment I entered Duane Park, I knew I was in for a treat! The room was decorated in a very old-fashioned cabaret show feel, which perfectly suits Kim David Smith's talented singing.
Kim David Smith's cabaret shows are inspired by the Weimar-era that brings together authentic musical material with stylistic takes on current popular tunes. From the moment Kim David Smith sang his first note, he enticed the audience and kept them enthralled throughout. Kim David Smith's voice is controlled, skilled, and very delightful to listen to. His vocals and shows are the perfect way to relax and forget your worries!
I have seen Kim David Smith's show "Misfit" before (click here for that review) and each time it just gets better! The song set for "Misfit" ranges from popular music to showtunes. Some of my favorite songs performed are "Physical" (by Olivia Newton-John), "Bang-Bang" (by Cher), "Summertime" (from "Porgy and Bess"), "Pirate Jenny" (from "Three Penny Opera"), and "You Keep Me Hanging On" (Kim Wilde).
Kim David Smith is a fast-rising singer who deserves to be heard! One of my favorite experiences with "Call Me Adam" is being introduced to new talent. I am so grateful to have been introduced to Kim David Smith via Dan Fortune. He was kind enough to reach out to me and as a result, I've become a big fan!
Kim David Smith's now busy working out the details of his next gig and as soon as I'm made aware of it, I will let everyone know! Keep your eyes peeled because Kim David Smith is going places...
