Victoria Matlock

Broadway Returns to Winnemucca
7:30 PM, Friday, August 31, 2012

Victoria made it to town, and she’s staying with her dad, but she has come down with laryngitis, so the show tonight is CANCELLED.

Victoria deeply regrets that this has occurred, and offers her profound apology.

If you purchased a ticket to the show, just come down to the Martin between 6:00 PM and 7:30 PM tonight, and you will be provided with a full refund.

On August 31st Broadway musical theater actress Victoria Matlock returns to the Martin Hotel with another show, once again sponsored by jointly by Great Basin Arts and Entertainment and White Sage Theatre.

Almost exactly three years ago Miss Matlock presented an evening of Broadway songs to a sold out audience at the Martin Hotel.  Since that performance there have been numerous comments made about her performance, most of which can be summarized as, “When is she coming back.”

During the past three years Miss Matlock has been performing in the Broadway show “Million Dollar Quartet.”  She was in this new musical for 901 performances: 523 on Broadway and the remainder when the show moved off-Broadway.  She played the part of Dyanne, Elvis Presley’s girlfriend and the only female in the show.  The show’s heavy production schedule of eight shows a week has prevented her from returning to Winnemucca.

In the performance at the Martin Hotel she will be performing the songs she sang in the show as well as a medley of other songs.  In addition she will open the floor for questions, especially for questions from young people who may be thinking of an acting career.

Miss Matlock graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in 1999 with a degree in musical theater and a minor in computer science.  The computer science education was to enable her to have an alternate career if the theater didn’t work out.  Since graduating she has been almost continuously working in the theater and has only used her computer background to prepare web sites for herself and a few friends.  Her web site is located at www.victoriamatlock.com.

Jazz Vocalist
CeCe Gable

Timeless Songs of the Great American Songbook

7:00 PM Saturday, October 8, 2011

CeCe Gable, the Chanteuse of the Sierra, makes her triumphant return to Winnemucca’s famed Martin Hotel on October 8, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. Last year’s performance was “over the top” with great jazz stylings by Ms. Gable and her band.

This is a show you won’t want to miss with world-class jazz musicians:

Keyboardist/Accordionist, Corky Bennett
Bassist, Bill McCubbin;
Tenor Saxophonist, Rocky Tatarelli
Drummer, Chuck Hughes.

This is sure to be an exciting evening of music for everyone who loves the timeless songs of the Great American Songbook, the Beatles, straight ahead jazz and some obscure cabaret tunes.

“Gable is a Reno and Northern Nevada treasure. A fine musician, a charming host for an evening of song from the Great American Songbook, this chic lady brings glamor to her work and a no-frills approach to lyrics and musical line that gives each song it’s very own moment supreme.” – Jack Neal

“CeCe is a storyteller. Her earlier studies in dance have clearly found their way into her approach to the song and jazz music, for she, like the dancer, attempts to get inside the sound in order to discover what the sound has to say…” – L. Martina Young

CeCe draws the listener into her captivating world of song with an incredible depth of emotion. She swings with rhythmic passion and also has the ability to caress a ballad with effortless interpretation. Influenced by many of the women and men of jazz, she offers her own voice on jazz standards and the American Songbook. She shines on any stage whether she is accompanied by a solo pianist, a trio or an entire orchestra… you’ll find you cannot get enough of this jazz experience.

Well known to audiences up and down the Pacific Coast and throughout the western states, CeCe Gable is rapidly becoming one of the premiere jazz singers in the region.

A native of Barberton, Ohio, and a graduate of Kent State University, CeCe lived in Winnemucca for a few years while she was working as an artist in residence in Winnemucca schools. While she was in Winnemucca she primarily taught dance and creative movement to budding young artist’s. CeCe now makes her home in the Reno/Tahoe area as a performing and recording artist.

A consummate jazz cabaret performer, she has sung in jazz clubs throughout the United States and Europe including New Orleans, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Fiji, Munich, Athens and at New York City’s Iridium with Les Paul.

She has presented the works of George Gershwin, Thelonious Monk, Stephen Sondheim and Kurt Weill to rave reviews in a variety of venues. According to Metroland (Albany, NY), CeCe Gable is a performer who exudes warmth, sophistication, a generous stage presence and rare versatility. A unique, compelling performer with a style and sound all her own, CeCe has been compared to the song stylists of the ’50?s with a contemporary twist.

Admired as a “quiet surprise” by audiences nationwide, CeCe has become known for delivering an honest performance and has prompted more than one audience member to say “When you sing I see the music flow through you and I believe you.”

Richard Feldman, stage director and arts critic for The Record (Troy, NY) asserts that “CeCe Gable is one of those rare performers whose mellow vocals, stylistic sophistication, diversity of material and intimate delivery combine perfectly to convince us that she’s singing to each of us…personally.”
