Blues musician Kathy Leonardo will give a performance benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Venice from 7:30 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, November 18th at Danny’s Venice Beach Bistro, 23 Windward Ave., Venice.

Leonardo will donate 50 percent of all CD sales to the Boys & Girls Club of Venice. Representatives of the club will be on hand at the event.

Jazz guitarist Vinnie Caggiano will open the performance. Leonardo, a singer, songwriter and comedienne, plans to perform songs such as “Stormy Weather,” “My Funny Valentine” and others.

Leonardo, originally from New York, has worked on Broadway and performed years of stand up comedy.

Caggiano, also from New York, is a guitarist who uses a technique called “looping” in his performance, which creates a multi-textural robust sound.

Admission is free.
