The Bev Leslies X-mas Fantasia 2019 Brought on Cyndi Lauper to Sing.

One of the best Christmas Party I attended this year was the Bev Leslies  X-mas Fantasia 2019 at The Cutting Room. Friends and family filled the room and  enjoyed the Bev Leslies take on Christmas Songs. Elaine Caswell and Bette Sussman gathered together some of the best musicians and vocalists to join them on stage.

Elaine asked her friend Cyndi Lauper to come up and sing a song. What a thrill  to hear Cyndi sing “I’m Dreaming of a White Christas” in her unique style.Since it was the first night of Hanukkah, Bette Sussman lit the candle and recited the blessing followed by “Dredl, Dredl” song. Looking forward to next year.
