MEDFORD – Calling all performers to a unique and relatively new type of entertainment known as Cabaroke.

What is Cabaroke?

“Cabaroke is a perfect marriage of Cabaret and Karaoke,” says Karen McGreer, a longtime entertainer and Medford resident. “You may enjoy live music: Jazz Standards and Great American Songbook that we perform or you may participate by singing Karaoke, choosing from 30,000 songs or you may bring sheet music you sing with accompaniment by Danielle, or you may bring an instrument to ‘jam’ with us. You sing. We sing. Let’s make live music!”

McGreer, 75, a licensed marriage and family therapist and certified sex therapist, has been performing with pianist Danielle Peterson, 33, the music therapist at the Medford Leas Continuing Care Retirement Community, for three years.

“Most people have not heard the word Cabaroke,” said McGreer. “We had not either when we last hosted this type of event; we performed 10 songs, and throughout the evening eight other singers performed a song or two each.  Participation in the creation making of live music is a perfect way to exercise creativity.”

McGreer and Peterson are hosting a Cabaroke event at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 23 at Studio 67, located at the Medford Feed Mill, 67 North Main Street, in Medford.

“Danielle is pregnant with her second child,” said McGreer, a mother of six who has 21 grandchildren. “She is an amazing young woman and truly adored by the residents of Medford Leas.”

The Medford Feed Mill (the restored Kirby’s Feed Store) has a barbeque restaurant, coffee shop, brewery, and much more downstairs.

“Jeff Lucas, former director of the Medford Arts Center, has brought new artistic energy to this part of town,” said McGreer. “Studio 67 has a glass craft studio, dance and yoga classes, comedy nights, private parties, live music, weddings and much more throughout the month.”

Studio 67 opened in December 2021. According to Lucas, renovations on the Feed Mill took two years. “We did our interior space. It was eight months beginning to end,” he said.

“The upstairs at Studio 67 is large, well ventilated and has incredible acoustics,” said McGreer.

Bring your own beverages/snacks, or even dinner from BBQ restaurant on the first floor. Admission is $20 per person or two for $30. If possible, prepay through Zelle or PayPal or check, to Karen McGreer at 267-716-7906 or email kbmcgreer@verizon.net. Reservations are recommended.
