  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

Tweety and the Tom-Cats will play at Alexa’s Cafe, December 28 at 7 p.m."

Our own local George Michael and his trio play this weekend at the cafe. Gina "Tweety" Holloway’s voice is rich and dynamic; when she bites into a song you can taste all the flavor.

George Michael vamps on everything from Van Morrison to Van Halen with both guitar and vocals.

Tom Austin mixes rhythmic stability with harmonic blend on his four- and five-stringed basses to balance the low end of the Tom-Cats.

Alexa’s Cafe is located at 10115 Main Street in Bothell. Music starts at 7 p.m.

Call (425)-402-1754 for reservations.
