This month, In Touch Entertainment is launching a monthly vocal-centric jazz program in Los Angeles, a sister to the hugely successful Vocal Mania series started in New York this spring.

The first West Coast event, co-hosted by acclaimed vocalists Denise Donatelli and Paulette McWilliams will take place on June 29 and feature jazz singer Kenny Washington. On July 27, vocalists Clairdee and Sara Gazarek will perform.

All the programs take place at Vitello's Jazz and Supper Club at 4349 Tujunga Avenue in Studio City.

“We extended the Vocal Mania series to the West Coast based on its success here in New York," said In Touch's CEO, Charles Carlini. “We are confident that it will be critically acclaimed in California as well."

NYC's monthly programs, held in a legendary jazz venue, the Zinc Bar, will continue to feature top vocalists, such as Jo Lawry on June 6, Kate McGarry on July 11, Alan Harris on September 12 and Sheila Jordan on October 10.

“We have had such an enthusiastic response to these shows because they feature only world-class musicians," said Janis Siegel, jazz singer with the vocal group The Manhattan Transfer who co-hosts the series with another top vocalist, Lauren Kinhan .

Besides the Vocal Mania programs, In Touch Entertainment also recently launched the Boss Tenors, Percussion Masters, and Dangerous Rhythms series. The first two feature world-class saxophone and percussion players while the latter, curated by bestselling author T.J. English, focuses on Latin jazz.

In 2017, In Touch Entertainment also started the guitar-centric Strings Attached series, featuring four of New York City's premier six-string jazz masters—Jack Wilkins, Vic Juris, Joe Cohn, and Mark Whitfield—on a single stage.

The full lineup may be found here.

All the programs take place at Zinc, at 82 W 3rd St in Greenwich Village.
