It's a fun-filled month at the best venue in Hillcrest for live music and comedy.
Summer may be coming to an end, but the talent at Martinis Above fourth continues to heat up through September. From a jazz visionary to shady drag queens to a musical landscapist, Martinis is still the best place in Hillcrest to see live entertainment from all over the world.
Here are some shows that you won't want to miss this month:
Jan Daley in "An Evening with Jan Daley" Sept. 12
Miss Daley brings to Martini’s a show that includes the amazing songs from her Billboards No.#1 Traditional Jazz Album and takes us on a visual journey with personal funny stories of her incredible years of traveling with Bob Hope and combines it with her recent “Broadway Lights up The Silver Screen” show that only a vocalist with this much talent and range can do. This show is something for everyone! Jazz, The American Songbook, Broadway and a little Boogie Woogie to boot!
“Miss Daley’s range is her most important attribute!” ... Los Angles Times
“Stunning is the only way to describe the spell that gorgeous songstress Jan Daley wove into her show...a masterful jazz vocalist. Don’t miss this great songstress live.”-Steve Tyrell
“She’s Got It!” -Frank Sinatra

Battle of the Bitches! Sept. 13
It's double the trouble and two times the terrific as legendary drag icons
Jackie Beat & Sherry Vine reunite onstage in a no-holds-barred, down 'n' dirty, anything-goes!
Watch as this dynamic duo (that the New York Times called “the Laurel & Hardy of drag") take each other on, song by filthy song! Blindly picking topics from a hat, each determined diva will belt out one of her world-famous, sick ‘n’ twisted song parodies. Whether the topic is DRUGS, DRAG or DICK, never fear – these gorgeous gals will have the perfect parody to present!
After working together for over 25 years in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin and more - in everything from their show-stopping turn as Heart in Wigstock to the Off-Broadway show TELL-TALE! - Jackie and Sherry have an electric onstage chemistry that cannot be denied!
Catch this once-in-a-lifetime double dollop of drag delight that has wowed SOLD OUT crowds in Anchorage, Chicago, Fire Island, Ft. Lauderdale, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Montreal, New Hope PA, New York City, Orlando, Palm Springs, Portland, Milwaukee, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Syracuse, Tampa and aboard the oh-so-appropriately named Golden Princess cruise ship for Atlantis Events!

Carole J. Bufford Live! Sept. 20
After a sold out-run of You Don't Own Me: The Fearless Females of the 1960s, Carole J. Bufford returns to the West Coast with an all-new show now exploring the change in the musical landscape from 1965-1975. With music made famous by Cher, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Simon & Garfunkel, Dusty Springfield, Otis Redding, Linda Ronstadt, Creedence Clearwater Revival and more, Come Together explores the ever-changing music industry in one of the most exciting, controversial, and impactful ten years our country has ever seen.
"The real thing: you know it when you see it...The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times
"Her voice, bright yet sensual, soared...Bufford threw herself into each number; her exuberance and sense of humour won us over from the outset." -Clive Davis, The Times (UK)
A recipient of the Nightlife, Bistro, and BroadwayWorld Awards for Outstanding Vocalist, Carole has become one of the most sought after young performers on the American jazz and cabaret scene. She recently enjoyed a highly praised 10-month solo run at New York’s Birdland Jazz Club and a monthly residency at Feinstein's/54 Below. She has been featured in Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook series at Jazz at Lincoln Center as well as numerous Pops performances with orchestras across the country.
