Upcoming Events

Carolena Matus and Randy Halberstadt

On Wednesday, August 8th, Carolena Matus (vocals) and Randy Halberstadt (piano) will be up to their usual shenanigans ... C.I. Shenanigans, that is! Join them on the Ruston Way waterfront in Tacoma for a combination of great eclectic jazz, fine dining, heady spirits, and well ... shenanigans! Carolena Mátus is a classically trained singer and jazz artist, who spent the majority of her career living and performing in Las Vegas, NV, the Entertainment Capital of the World. Her distinctive vocal quality, exceptional pitch and ear, combined with her artistic lyric interpretation and phrasing set her apart as a vocal musician of excellence. In the mid-1980s, Mátus was introduced through a former band member to Frank Sinatra, Jr. Her respect for him, along with his passion for the music and his own multifaceted talent, greatly inspired and influenced her. Thanks to Frank’s influence, the jazz bug had bitten her; she was thoroughly hooked and her music was forever, joyfully changed. Her formative experiences with preeminent Las Vegas jazz musicians including internationally renowned trombonist, Carl Fontana, amongst many others, are the basis for the singer she is today. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, Carolena continues to expand the scope of her music partnerships and has been blessed by a variety of expert musicians from Portland to Seattle, including Randy Halberstadt, John Stowell, D'Vonne Lewis, Osama Afifi, Chris Symer, Phil Sparks, Michael Barnett, Clipper Anderson, Bill Anschell, Darin Clendenin, Bert Wilson, Jay Thomas and Joe Baque. A Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame inductee, Randy Halberstadt has been a major figure on the Pacific Northwest jazz scene for many years. A multi-dimensional pianist, composer and author, he is equally at home playing bebop, Latin and a host of other jazz genres. Having performed with many jazz luminaries, he has appeared at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and abroad.
