Leanne Borghesi is a vibrant, bi-coastal entertainer, vocalist and theater artist (SF/NY) specializing in performance with Big Bands, Jazz Ensemble and comedic “theatrical cabarets.” She has been entertaining audiences coast to coast for over two decades. A recent raucous New York debut of her one-woman comedic hit: MOOD SWINGS (2019 MAC Award Nominee) Borghesi also made her New York Carnegie Hall and Jazz at Lincoln Center Debut with the Mabel Mercer Foundation. She and Marta both will be returning again this year.

In a career spanning several decades, vocalist and entertainer, Marta Sanders has continued to draw on her mastery of the American nightclub style with her bold and brassy personality. Soon after arriving in Manhattan, her career led her to the New York cabaret circuit, and she was eventually cast in the original Broadway production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

Their credits would fill several volumes!

“Marta Sanders, a consummate New York cabaret artist since the ’70s, whose artistry has grown so thrillingly that her performances are viewed as master classes in the art of song interpretation, concluded the evening and the 2018 Convention with a well-deserved standing ovation for “What Did I Have That I Don’t Have?” and proved she still has everything and more.” Myra Chanin

“With the lungs of Ethel Merman, the wigs of Ann Miller, the feather boas of Julie Wilson, the humor of Sophie Tucker, and the soul of a RuPaul Drag Race winner, Leanne Borghesi laid waste and conquered a very willing audience”- Bart Greenberg
