Unforgettable: John-Mark McGaha Sings Nat King Cole

September 9 – November 6, 2022

Stackner Cabaret


An Elegant Celebration of a Jazz Legend

Remember the genius and warmth of Nat King Cole with acclaimed singer, storyteller and multi-instrumentalist John-Mark McGaha (The Ray Charles Legacy, Smokey Joe's Cafe). In this heartfelt concert, McGaha leads a lush jazz ensemble and reflects upon Cole's trailblazing career with poignant insight and intimate charm. BroadwayWorld calls his voice "crystal-clear perfection." Classic songs include "Unforgettable," "Route 66," "L-O-V-E" and "Mona Lisa."
