The No Fuss and Feathers Roadshow is an in-the-round, collaborative project that presents Carolann Solebello, Karyn Oliver, and The YaYas (Catherine Miles and Jay Mafale) sharing the stage, playing on each other?s songs, harmonizing, percussing, and generally having a heck of a good time!
 
All four members of the No Fuss and Feathers Roadshow (NFFR) are veterans of the "Joni Mitchell's Blue" tribute show presented by the NYC female songwriter collective known as Chicks with Dip. During those performances, the four had the opportunity to play together and discovered that their combined talents made for a pretty special sound. The show found its title by combining a nod to the Chicks with Dip (in the "feathers" reference) with a hint as to the nature of the show - not pretentious or unnecessarily ornate - simply a group of highly regarded songwriters who have great respect for each other, both personally and professionally, coming together to share their work with an audience.

$20 with advance reservation, $22 without.

bullet Resolutions passed by NJ municipalities in support of an amendment, and what can be done to gain the support of more NJ municipalities
bullet Government by the People Act (SB 20) federal legislation for public financing of congressional campaigns that can broaden participation by small donors
