Cabaret Night is an annual event. It started three years ago and draws a nice crowd to the Smoke Rise Inn, where Kinnelon's own Stearns Matthews hosts and performs with other talented musicians. This year's event includes more performers than in previous years.
Note that the event is open to the public, as is the Smoke Rise Inn.
Perhaps you've seen the flyer describing Cabaret Night. It reads:
"Stearns Matthews will be your host for the evening in addition to performing with some of his close friends from the music industry. Adding to an already wonderful evening will be the talents of Debi Kahn who will join Stearns on stage for a couple of numbers.
To make reservations for this fun filled performance, please mail your check, payable to the Smoke Rise Village Inn, to Jean Roy at 254 Long Meadow Road, Kinnelon, NJ 07405.
Tickets are $10 per person and your check will act as confirmation of your reservation. Tickets may also be purchased at the door the evening of for $15.
Be sure to make your dinner reservations early and enjoy a wonderful dinner prior to the show. To better accommodate our guests that evening, the kitchen will remain open until 11pm for any late night cravings or those wishing to have desert after the performance.
Performance begins at 8:30pm."
Stearns Matthews and Debi Kahn are both from Kinnelon and Smoke Rise. They join Megan Candio, who performed with Stearns last year, Jenna Tomsko, and Ben Houten, who will be playing the piano.
By the way, Stearns also performed in the 27th Annual Christmas Concert at Our Lady of the Magnificat. If you missed him there, listen to this video of him performing This Will Be.
