Ana Gasteyer (#101H) Duration: 55:18 STEREO TVPG

When Ana Gasteyer steps up to the mic, she evokes the swagger of an era when a lady ruled a nightclub and an audience knew they were in for a good time. Her performance is a perfect blend of the tongue-in -cheek comedy you can expect from a former Saturday Night Live cast member combined with the vocal range of a seasoned Broadway star. Gasteyer's eclectic range of covers and reimagined classics like "One Mint Julep" and "I Wish Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate" to her surprisingly smooth rendition of Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats", are the perfect showcase of her musical chops and comedic genius. Gasteyer tells stories with humor, heartbreak...and just a little splash of soda. The patter is real, the themes adult, the lyrics are timeless, and the music swings like crazy!

Rickie Lee Jones (#102H) Duration: 54:40 STEREO TVPG

Two-time Grammy-winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. Her latest release, The Other Side of Desire, explores a new chapter in her life--her first album of new original material in ten years. In The Kate, Rickie Lee's performance provides a window into the meteoric rise and fade of the early days and the soul-stirring place her song writing emanates from now. Charming the audience with fan favorites like "Chuck E's In Love" and the playful new tune penned for her daughter, "Jimmy Choos," to the haunting piano-driven ballad "Infinity," Rickie Lee Jones shares with audiences her signature bravado.

Ann Wilson (#104H) Duration: 56:02 STEREO TVPG

Ann Wilson's musical gifts are legendary; she has created a truly impressive body of work with her equally talented sister Nancy as part of the rock band Heart. Her voice has moved legions of fans and great singers across every genre of music. Now, Ann is doing something she's always dreamed of--performing the songs she's been thinking about all these years in "The Ann Wilson Thing" (TAWT) on The Kate. TAWT is the equivalent of a mix tape gifted from Ann Wilson to her fans, providing an intimate perspective on her musical influences and inspiration. Songs like Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth," Jeff Buckley's "I Want Someone Badly" and Ike and Tina's "River Deep Mountain High" prove that Ann Wilson is a master-fearless on stage. Her impassioned vocals and eclectic song choices are drenched in devotion to the song or the artist of origin and often sprinkled with personal innuendo.
