An Evening with Neile Adams

By Harrison Held

A delightful evening with stylish singer/dynamo Neile Adams at the beautiful Catalina Bar & Grill Jazz Club on Sunset directed by Ted Sprague. The engaging, warm and very personable Ms. Adams and former Mrs. Steve McQueen was fun, feisty and fabulous with a great sense of humor.

It was fun to see Ms. Adams live for the first time, she's a wonderful entertainer who I remember seeing many times on television growing up and more recently on YouTube. Her very entertaining show was jam packed with great tunes starting with "On A Clear Day You Can See Forever" followed by "Child In Me," "Nothing" (so funny), "Is That All There Is/When October Goes" and "Wherever He Aint/Time Heals Everything."

A memorable 40s Broadway melody, which was very humorous and well delivered. Ms. Adams' Spanish selection of "Ayer/Con Los Anos Que Me Quedon" was terrific followed by the crowd pleaser "How Lucky Can You Get" from the movie "Funny Lady." Next up were other audience favorites later topped off by Charles Chaplin's sweet and sentimental "Smile and I'm Old Fashioned." Neile Adams' show was a real treat. She's the epitome of classic Hollywood glamor and knows how to captivate and charm her audience.

The talented musicians in her band were Chris Connor on bass, Sam Webster on drums and Dan Ferguson on guitar. Great to see classic Hollywood stars Richard Benjamin and Paula Prentiss in the audience too -- a good time was held by all!
