Kathy Robinson aka "Babe" took the reigns at Dino's Backstage last night. Michael Richard Kelly-Cataldi was scheduled but was under the weather. Babe jumped in last minute and threw together a fabulous show with the Grant MacAvoy trio. That's the diference between a singer and a true performer.
A packed house in The Celebrity Room and all of our guests raved and left happy. Thank you Babe and the GMT for another fabulous evening at Dino's Backstage.

MONTPARNASSE / THE PIANO BAR
Kathy "Babe" Robinson performing at Montparnasse in Mykonos town
"All of the seats were taken except three closest to the singer, Kathy “Babe” Robinson who goes by Babe. She was performing a mixture of songs from Abba, to old school soul and also taking recommendations from the audience. Luckily, her pianist knew quite a few songs without sheet music! Overall, she was a great singer and cracked some jokes here and there, but her song choices fit with the crowd and atmosphere of the night."
"As we just arrived to Mykonos Island, two friends and I were searching out a “chill” place to have a few drinks our first night there. So off we went roaming through the streets of the downtown area and that is where came across Montparnasse/The Piano Bar. The bar seemed lively enough, and as we started walking towards the live music I noticed the gay friendly atmosphere."
"Kinda classy in a quirky way!"
"... the stars of the show are most definitely Kathy "Babe" Robinson and Mark Harman. Mark plays the piano (and sometimes sings), and Kathy sings... it makes for a great night. Both Mark and Kathy's repertoires are astonishingly wide-ranging (Mark used to play on Broadway), and they take requests. We've thrown countless musicals, Bette Midler, Shirley Bassey and Disney at them, and they've performed them all with aplomb.
“Best night's Entertainment, Best Cocktails, Best Service.”
"Entertainment: A+... Kathy Babe Robinson and Bobby Peaco were incredible... performing from 10-2 every night,
an endless array of music styles with their own humorous twist.
Definitely a reason to revisit Mykonos."
Piano Star: Kathy "Babe" Robinson

"I first heard the American flame-haired DIVA Kathy “Babe” Robinson on my first night in Mykonos @ the Montparnasse Piano Bar…
Wow! What a voice!
Wow! & What a range!!…
By request she sings everything from sultry / wraspy old jazz
numbers to soar to Adele’s Skyfall!
She works & lulls her audience with her gloriously warm, rich velvety voice,
in between songs she adds fire-cracker banter & great waspish one-liners.
Clap! Clap! Bravo!
A MUST see…
I’m a HUGE fan, so I went every night!!! She’s beautifully accompanied on the piano by the very gifted David Dyer.

I’ve been a fan of Kathy “Babe” Robinson for over a decade. I first ran into her in a club on the Aegean Greek island of Mykonos, Europe’s #1 favorite island tourist destination. Each night I’d watch as she captivated standing room only crowds with her deep, clear, emotional virtuosity of voice, unique approach to popular classics, and quick-witted, humorous facility for turning other songs into favorites of the crowd. Her fans run the spectrum from locals who treat her as an island institution to the many international jet setters who know that a night out on Mykonos is not complete without a stop at "Montparnasse,The Piano Bar" to hear Babe let loose with her pipes.
I've even paid homage to Babe in several of my books, for as one of my characters admitted, “he loved the singer and every time he was in town he made a point of going there.” Many share those feelings for Babe.
