Jana Robbins


Jana and Cy Coleman after ONE HELL OF A RIDE!
at Don't Tell Mama, Monday, June 3, 2002.

Jana headlines at The National Parkinson Foundation's
Annual Gala in Miami, Florida.

"It was ONE HELL OF A RIDE! It's the most compelling performance I've seen, in, I can't tell you when. It was heartfelt. What she did for me, was an amazing thing. She took the music, my music, and lyrics of course, and she wove it into a story that was so revealing about her and her life, that I'd forgotten that I'd written that music.

I got caught up in Jana Robbins."
-Cy Coleman

Nobody Does It Like Her: Jana Robbins Sing Cy Coleman At Arci's Kenneth Jones' News Item at Playbill.com

JANA ROBBINS is a powerhouse of personality and pizazz! In her show, One Hell of a Ride!, she salutes the music of legendary Cy Coleman and his ability to write songs for women. With a solid respect and admiration for the gentleman and his work, Robbins graces the stage at Danny's Skylight Room with enduring songs, such as "You Fascinate Me So," "Witchcraft," "The Best Is Yet To Come," and "Baby Dream Your Dream." She possesses a clear, mellow voice with belting capabilities that rival Ethel Merman and Liza Minnelli. Effervescent with just enough sass to pull off the sophisticated humor of Coleman and his talented lyricists, she weaves anecdotes of her career and encounters with the composer into her song repertoire so well that at times you have to remind yourself that it's not a mini-Broadway show. It's Jana Robbins, and that m! akes for a thoroughly entertaining evening.
