+ Tommy Mitchell, former Lead Singer with Blood, Sweat and Tears – Tuesdays through Thursdays

+ Rob Russell’s Cast Party Every Saturday Featuring the Mel Urban Trio with Charmaine
(Palm Beach, FL – November 5, 2012) The Colony Hotel - which The Palm Beach Post has hailed as “probably the best place for cabaret on the planet” – continues to cement its position as the “Palm Beach Home of the Great American Songbook” by presenting live music nightly (Tuesdays through Saturdays) in its popular restaurant and lounge, Polo Steaks & Seafood.
“While our 2012-2013 cabaret season in the hotel’s celebrated Royal Room promises to be bigger and better than ever with such headliners as Christine Ebersole, Clint Holes, Marilyn Maye, Faith Prince, Steve Tyrell, The Four Freshman and Avery Sommers, our musical offering in Polo Steaks & Seafood is just as joyous and equally impressive,”
Polo Presents Tommy Mitchell Tuesdays through Thursdays:
Singer and piano player Tommy Mitchell may be best known for his distinguished credit as lead singer of the legendary rock group Blood Sweat and Tears. His style ranges from 70s rock to show tunes, from soulful to spitfire, as he belts hits from Frank Sinatra to Journey with a little Cats and Phantom of the Opera thrown in as well. Now a resident of Jupiter, Tommy Mitchell was a successful jingle writer and arranger whose voice has been heard on hundreds of national TV and Radio commercials such as AT&T Coca-Cola, Mastercard, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Toyota. His productions have included working with Michael Bolton, Leon Russell, Irene Cara, and Patti Austin, and he has performed on stage with Darlene Love, Phoebe Snow, Ben E. King and Paul Shaffer. Tommy Mitchell performs Tuesdays through Thursdays in Polo, from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Polo Presents Motown Friday Nights with Memory Lane
Friday nights have become Motown nights at The Colony with the soul-stirring sounds of Memory Lane in Polo from 9:30 p.m. to closing.

People are dancing, singing, rocking away -- right here in Palm Beach.
