Medical doctor, comic, public orator and social commentator, Dr Michael Abrahams, will be in his usual fine form come Sunday, June 25, as he takes his place among the 'Professionals' - the theme for the next in the series, Jazz ‘N Cabaret in the Gardens at the Jamaica Pegasus in Kingston.

Abrahams, whose, No Chik-V, plug on behalf of the Ministry of Health has attracted the likes of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), is known for his witty and often irreverent takes on life, including well-intentioned jabs at organised religion, politicians and how both men and women seek to impress each other.

He will be sharing the 'Professionals' stage with veteran attorney and vocalist Hugo Barrington, whose, Lordie Lordie, and Loving is a Thing, are staples of Jamaican pop; Dr Kathy Brown, whose prowess as a keyboardist continually ascends new heights and musical professional Dwight Richards, the multi-talented vocalist-trumpeter-bandleader, who effortlessly brings audiences to their feet in just about any setting.

This edition of Jazz ‘N Cabaret  in the Gardens, will also see the likes of gospel crooners Urimm 7, the effervescent cabaret artist Dje, (pronounced 'de-ji'), Suzanne McGregor and bassist Kadeem Leslie, all “youngsters” who have been busy making their mark in the multifaceted Kingston cabaret and corporate show scenes.

The inimitable Michael Anthony Cuffe, will take the audience through the proceedings as emcee, with the exciting Pon Fyah band, a powerful draw in their own right, supporting the acts on stage. Showtime is 6 p.m.

Jazz  ‘N Cabaret in the Gardens....a Feast for the Senses, is presented with the support of ClearSound; Nestle, Spur Open, KOOL 97 FM,  POWER 106 FM and MUSIC99FM.

Tickets are $3,000 pre-sold, $3,500 at the gate; VIP $5,000 (presold only) and are available at: Super Med Pharmacy, Mall Plaza; and the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel from June 22-25.
