Branden & James The Palm Cabaret 2021. For their 5th Anniversary season, Puerto Vallarta favorites & America’s Got Talent finalists, BRANDEN & JAMES, are back with a brand-new show, “The Lady Gaga Songbook.” As one of the best-selling artists of all time, Lady Gaga’s musical output has ranged from pop to jazz (in her collaborations with Tony Bennett), to film soundtracks and countless award shows. Described by NPR Music as having “dazzling cello and soaring tenor vocals,” BRANDEN & JAMES explore Lady Gaga’s career to date, celebrating her most cherished performances with their pop-driven classical spin and unique charm.
BRANDEN & JAMES “have become a brand-name in the classical crossover music world alongside the likes of Josh Groban, The Piano Guys and Jackie Evancho” (The Bay Area Reporter, San Francisco.) Since their inception in 2015, the cello and vocal duo have been defying odds by reinventing the rules when it comes to classical crossover music. BRANDEN says,”people tell us we’re so unique and different . I think that’s what excites us most. We’re actually doing something that hasn’t been done before.”
As a duo, they have travelled around the world playing in concert halls, cabaret venues, and luxury cruise lines. They recently collaborated with Broadway veteran Shoshana Bean on their debut album “Chasing Dreams” and are set to launch a 70-city U.S. tour in 2021-2022. As individuals, Australian cellist James Clark is an arranger, orchestrator and concert pianist who has played alongside stars such as Idina Menzel & Olivia Newton-John. America’s Got Talent finalist, Branden James, a native of California recently penned his first book, an award-winning memoir, Lyrics Of My Life published in September 2020.
Shows are Wednesday and Saturdays. Get your tickets at The Palm Cabaret.
