Nellie McKay – July 11, 2012

Nellie McKay  -  Madison Square Park  -  July 11, 2012

McKay has mastered aspects of the cabaret/supper-club room sensibility, then uses it as a springboard for sly devastating humor both in her programming and banter.  Her solid chops, endearing kooky mannerisms, impeccable delivery, and sympatico band added up to a package of quirky sophistication.  Song selection from a broad swath of popular culture is putty in her hands.  My tough decision was whether to sketch her playing piano or ukulele,  as she split her time about equally between the two; since she started on keys, I focused on her band when she was ukeing it.
