Featured Entertainer: CASSANDRA KUBINSKI
Cassandra Kubinski recently released her latest album DREAMS, an 8 song collaboration between her and Tony Daniels. Featuring 5 originals and 3 covers of classics, it builds on her reputation as an acoustically based, piano heavy, quirky, soulful songwriter with a hint of sass. Her last two albums, Holiday Magic and Onward, both hit the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and she has shared stages with the Goo Goo Dolls, 10,000 Maniacs, Jill Sobule, Caroline Jones, Anna Nalick and more. She has entertained audiences from Germany to Malaysia, Australia to LA, Jamaica back to NYC, from living rooms to CitiField (Mets Stadium). She also loves using music for healing and supporting causes, such as Autism Awareness (her song Not So Different helped raise $30,000 to support Institute for Autism Research), pet rescue (song You Get Me and its accompanying video have raised thousands for Humane Society of NY and others), and of course, the heart inside all of us that can use some healing, release, and hope.
