7pm Jill Sobule in concert

Singer/songwriter Jill Sobule rose to fame on the strength of her 1995 hit single “I Kissed a Girl,” a tongue in cheek nod to the media’s fascination with “lesbian chic.”. In 1990, Sobule finally made her debut with Things Here Are Different, which the songwriter recorded with producer Todd Rundgren. 
Sobule’s fortunes turned when her lawyer played her demo tape for an Atlantic Records executive, who was so impressed by the contrast her winsome, folk-flavored pop offered in comparison to the then-current chart dominance of grunge that he quickly signed her to a contract. After the 1995 release of Jill Sobule and the subsequent popularity of “I Kissed a Girl,” she scored another hit with the satirical “Supermodel,” which was featured prominently in Amy Heckerling’s comedy smash Clueless.

8:30pm ADD Cabaret with Angela Di Carlo

Can’t Focus?  Feeling Fidgety? Angela Di Carlo presents Attention Deficit Disorder Cabaret, an evening of short, catchy hilarious original songs about anything from random observations and pet  peeves to timely topics performed in a relentlessly funny lightning pace.  With Kyle “Special K” Forester on piano. A laff riot not for the faint of heart~! “Vivacious! One of the best gigs of the week.” Time Out New York

9:30pm Sundays in the Club with Lance – a party around a piano featuring Emmy Winning  composer Lance Horne with tons of special guests.

Monday July 9th 5-8pm Brini and Josh Knit at Night  Time Out New York says of Knit at Night: “Homemaking empress Brini Maxwell and sweater-weather fantasy Josh Bennett give new-user-friendly advice and pro tips for all sorts of curious knitters, and welcome special guests to instruct on designs over drinks. Bring your needles or grab a kit—you’re a part of the family now. “

9pm Cabernet Cabaret with Catherine Cohen: “Gay men adore her. Women comics live to work with her. And we give you just one minute before you’re melting in the god-given stage presence of Catherine Cohen. Now, Cohen invites new fans to worship at her altar at this night of catchy original songs, upsetting characters and sweet social commentary. She’s joined at the piano by her ride-or-die musical companion Henry Koperski”- Time Out New York

There are many events happening at Club Cumming at The Beach. Some have a cover charge, some, like our knitting event, are free.
You can either choose to pay for an all access ticket to ALL of the events ($220), including the opening night party, or you can choose to only come to individual events, and buy tickets for those. In some cases, like ADD Cabaret, which only has a nominal $10 cover charge, we wont be selling advance tickets, just at the door. All of this will be listed in the brochure I’ll be posting by June 1st.
