The Deering Estate's Cabaret Concert Series features eclectic and world music artists in the intimate setting of the historic Stone House Ballroom.
Appearing June 23 at 8 pm is the multi award winning jazz duo Davis and Dow. These two have chemistry. Soul mates who are two strong halves of one big sound, Davis and Dow tackle jazz and pop standards with abandon. Their style is rooted in the jazz tradition, their arrangements are unique and inventive, and they are always seeking a new approach.
Julie Davis is everything from a scat-singer to a balladeer and Kelly Dow is a world-class guitarist.

Picturing The Man Behind The Camera
This exhibition at the Jewish Museum of Florida examines the work of photojournalist Mel Finkelstein. From the late 1960s to the late 1980s he shot New York and its people for the The Daily News.
“Few photojournalists in history have had as direct, immediate and continuous relationship with a mass audience as Finkelstein, from the time of his youth to his untimely death at age 60, when he was photo editor at The New York Post.
This collection of photos from the 1950s-1980s focuses on iconic symbols from our cultural past, giving a sense of this larger-than-life man and his world of time, place and celebrity. The exhibit is full of candid images of well-known personalities, from presidents to performers, such as Presidents Kennedy, Truman and Eisenhower, Frank Sinatra, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, The Beatles, John Travolta, Kim Novak, Marilyn Monroe and Sylvester Stallone.”
