SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959) is presented as part of ECA’s Film Cabaret Series – screenings of classic films whose stunning cinematography and iconic music was made to be experienced on the big screen. Providing live entertainment during Cabaret happy hour (6:30 pm) are Sundae + Mr. Goessl.
SOME LIKE IT HOT (1959) stars Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon. Two down-on-their-luck jazz musicians find themselves out of a job and on the run after the police raid the speakeasy they perform in and they inadvertently stumble upon a gang war. With no money and nowhere to hide, a gig with Sweet Sue and her Society Syncopators at a Florida beach resort seems like the perfect getaway. There’s just one problem: the Syncopators are an all-female band, and Joe and Jerry aren’t women - yet. Armed with some dodgy wigs and wobbly falsettos, Joe and Jerry manage to join the Syncopators, where they meet Sugar Kane: a hooch-swilling, ukulele-playing knockout with a soft spot for bad boys saxophone players. Barely able to believe their good fortune, things start to go off the rails for the pair when they begin to attract unwanted attention from lecherous millionaires and some familiar faces show up at their hotel for a gathering of the country’s most dangerous criminals.
Sundae + Mr. Goessl features award-winning vocalist Kate Voss (Earshot Magazine's Vocalist of the Year, two-time Seattle-Kobe Vocal Jazz Princess) and Seattle's most versatile virtuoso guitarist, Jason Goessl. This charming husband/wife duo incorporates humor, vintage style, interesting instrumentation, nostalgia and serious chops in their act. Awarded Best Jazz Act of 2017 from Seattle Weekly, this industrious couple has produced 5 albums since their inception in 2014 and enjoys "living the dream" as full-time musicians performing 250+ shows a year! Bringing back the sounds from a by-gone era and spreading the joy of jazz like Johnny Appleseed, this act can be described in a single word: delightful.

Although she spent most of her life singing, Lorrie Morgan didn't become a star until the early '90s, when she scored a string of Top Ten country hits. Born Loretta Lynn Morgan, she was the daughter of Grand Ole Opry star George Morgan and made her professional debut at age 13 on the Opry, where her rendition of "Paper Roses" received a standing ovation. When her father died in 1975, she took over his band and began leading the group through various club gigs. Within a few years, she disbanded the group, and in 1977, she went on to play with the Little Roy Wiggins band. She then became a receptionist and demo singer at Acuff-Rose, where she also wrote songs. In 1978, she had one minor hit single; the following year another minor hit with "I'm Completely Satisfied," an electronically dubbed duet with her late father. She began touring Nashville nightclubs and opened for a number of acts, including Jack Greene, Billy Thunderkloud, and Jeanie Seely. She also toured as a duet partner with George Jones and spent two years as part of the Opryland USA bluegrass show and as a guest singer on TNN's Nashville Now.

Joan Osborne first came to prominence in 1996 with the Grammy-winning record Relish, which featured the controversial hit “One of Us.” In the decades that followed, she has explored nearly all facets of American music and has proved herself as versatile as a vocalist as she is powerful. Singer-songwriters Deb Talan & Steve Tannen began writing together the night they met and soon formed American indie band The Weepies. On the strength of their distinctive songwriting and harmonies, The Weepies quietly sold more than a million records. Their original songs appear across the media spectrum, including movies, TV shows, commercials, and original education programming on PBS Kids.
