BREAKING BAD: SINFUL SONGS FROM THE 1920'S AND 30'S

Nationally acclaimed and "outstandingly talented trio" Three For A Song return to Germano's with songs your mama probably never taught you. Join pianist Alex Hassan, tenor Doug Bowles, and soprano Kari Paludan for a hilarious and scandalous evening of sinfully good tunes with decidedly bawdy predilections. Equal parts double-entendre, sexy, sophisticated and downright naughty; you've never heard Cole Porter and his ilk like this! Don't say we didn't warn you. 

“…One of the freshest and most stimulating shows for lovers of vintage popular music performed by an outstandingly talented trio.” — Michael Feinstein
