NEW YORK CITY |Â Check them out tonight. Their new concert marks a return engagement â€” and itâ€™s for a fine cause.
Kim and William, a good-spirited duo of fine New York singers, promise to groove and croon 7:00 pm tonight Saturday February 18, 2023 as part of a popular and ongoingCabaret Cares series.
Cabaret Cares, now in its 11th year, raises necessary funds to benefit Help Is On The Way Today, a grassroots nonprofit organization that helps and assists children and youth living with HIV and AIDS in New York City. So far, the MAC And Bistro Award winning series has raised upwards of $64,000.
Kim & Williamâ€™s concert performance takes place at the Metropolitan Room, a high-end jazz venue, located at 34 West 22nd Street, NY. Doors open at 6pm. There is a $25 food and beverage minimum. Make reservations at (212) 206-0440.
Or get your tickets directly by visiting Metropolitan Roomâ€™s website.
Kim is Kimberly Reid Dunbar, and Bill is William Candelario. Their evening tonight, titled “Back to Basics,” marks a new moment. Theyâ€™ve been committed to help to attract a good audience for the monthly charity series. Recently, for example, they performed at the Laurie Beechman Theater on Broadway. Last year, In the Culture of One World covered their Christmas engagement.
A high-end cabaret and jazz club, Metropolitan Room has been a home for big-name talents and rising stars alike. It straddles the line between Manhattanâ€™s Flatiron and Chelsea neighborhoods. The 115-seat Metropolitan Room, with an atmosphere reminiscent of the golden age of cabaret, brings the best in live music to New York City every night of the week.
Providing children, teens and youth with medical supplies, school supplies and holiday gifts, Help Is On the Way is working on scholarship and mentoring programs. The series has raised over $160,000 for the organization.
So go. Letâ€™s get back to live music basics with Kim & William. Catch their wave.Â
