From Marianne Faithfull and Nancy Sinatra to Nico and Peggy Lee, Dianna will be paying tribute to some of finest female-fronted acts of the '60s and '70s.

A resident of New York, she is thrilled to bring her voice back to Café Carlyle, something she feels cements her place in the city.

Steve Tyrel - Cafe Carlyle

Steve Tyrell is currently celebrating his 14th anniversary performing in Café Carlyle's revered holiday slot, having taken over for Bobby Short in 2005 after the legend's passing. The New York Times has declared, "Mr. Tyrell is a terrific storyteller… his sizable voice filters Louis Armstrong through Ray Charles and Dr. John." Ten of his eleven albums have achieved Top 5 status on Billboard's Traditional Pop Charts, with his most recent, A Song For You, reaching #1 earlier this year. In October, Steve Tyrell released a 21-song extended edition of his 2008 chart-topper Back to Bacharach. The album, an homage to Tyrell's friend and mentor, Burt Bacharach, features seven additional Bacharach classics.
