Cabaret Review of Pat Whiteman/Harriet Schock
“On Thursday May 19 consummate singer Pat Whiteman presentedAn Evening of Pat Whiteman & Grammy nominated songwriter Harriet Schock at the E Spot Lounge at Vitello’s in Studio City to a sold-out house of arduous music lovers. Although not as well known as the others, Harriet Schock has been compared to Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon. Her pop songs are that good, for example “Ain’t No Way to Treat a Lady” which gave Helen Reddy a great big hit back in the 70s. Who better to interpret her incisive emotional messages than virtuoso Pat Whiteman? The evening was a divine songfest of original material with a 6-piece band, including Schock at the piano and electronic keyboard, and two backup singers.”
“Throughout the set fantastic musicians Joe Lamanno was on bass, Brad Blaisdell a standout on harmonica, Jennifer Richardson on cello, Kelly DeSarla on flute, Scott Breadman on percussion, and Schock herself alternating between piano and keyboard and adding vocals on some songs and dueting with Whiteman on others. Andrea Ross-Greene and Barbara Shane provided superb backup vocals.”
I’m having a very creative and exploratory experience with Gary Imhoff’s Musical Master Class. On my second 8 week session, and I’ve ventured into new territory with wonderful guidance and feedback from this extremely intuitive teacher. It is a safe venue to try, to fail, to succeed, to reach, to play. I love it!

I love this show! I played Shprintze when I was a child and fell in love with the story and music. Not much in it for my casting right now, but I did a fun cameo as Grandma Tzeitel.
