Out at Jacque’s

Jacque’s Cabaret is the oldest entertainment bar in Massachusetts and has an undeniable charm. From the stage with a lit runway to the mirrors on the ceiling, it is a venue fit for a true performer. Berlin was a weekly Jacque’s staple from 1994 to 2003.  He returns to his old stomping ground on months with a 5th Monday. Last night, patrons were in for a treat – Rick jammed on his Yamaha both solo and with two other members from the Nickel and Dime, Jesse Adams-Lukowsky and his nephew, Sam Dudley. Berlin’s expansive vocal range is on display in the videos below.

Rick warms up his Whiffenpoof falsetto and cheeses for the camera (for yours truly), while singing “The Night Is Young.”

“Happy Lesbians” inspires choreography that you may have not seen since Angels in the Outfield.

Above is a clip from a song about a 7-foot woman. Oddly, she didn’t want to be the star of the video. “She’s so big, you cannot see the sky.” I can’t imagine why.
