After a near sell-out show at The Pheasantry in London's Chelsea in January, Michael Omer's next cabaret shows in 2012 were at major cabaret venues in New York:
The Metropolitan Room (February 26 & March 4, 2012) & Don't Tell Mama ( April 13 & 20, 2012).
From London's legendary Pizza on the Park and now a regular artist at the Pheasantry in London's Chelsea neighborhood, British jazz pianist and cabaret singer Michael Omer makes his U.S. performance debut at the Metropolitan Room.
He does so in a unique show with something for just about everyone -- original songs, new jazz gems, a sprinkling of standards, a clever and totally improvised "Instant Musical" show ending, and selections taken from his remarkable album, intriguingly titled 'Unwritten, Unplugged & Unsigned'-- all this plus a dash of very special British humor!

He was also invited to appear at the legendary Birdland in Jim Caruso’s Cast Party.
Please see some outstanding reviews from Cabaret Scenes Magazine, and Times Square Chronicles here...
The cabaret shows featured selections from the totally improvised album “Unwritten, Unplugged & Unsigned” along with a wide selection of original songs.
Several well known cabaret artists & Broadway performers attended including Karen Akers, Rosemary Loar, Oscar winning Hollywood actress Celeste Holm, and legendary cabaret singing star Steve Ross, who wrote “Michael Omer’s charming, oh-so-British off-hand, chatty manner belies a formidable talent.”
Michael has now been booked to appear on the west coast in the summer, with shows at a new jazz club, The Ivories, in Portland, Oregon.
One featured song, “Blizzard of Lies” is written by local Portland resident and singer-songwriter Dave Frishberg, and Dave is already on the guest list!
