When Girls Just Want to Have Fun 

The Rrazz Room, San Francisco

 

"...Arnaldo! serves a masterfully-prepared tasty banquet à la Eartha Kitt this time out, titled “C’est Si Bon!”, a musical tribute to - not a cloning of - the legendary Kitt (sumptuous accompaniment by Bob Bruneau). Focus, preparation, and talent free-up Arnaldo! to dish-out a hearty, heart-felt portion of purrrfect Kitt cabaret in this 45-minute, six-languaged set.... "

"And oh yes, there is also a rendition of the pop classic that will always belong to Eartha Kitt, but is now in the capable hands of Seattle cabaret star deluxe, Arnaldo. So savory was his performance on opening night, the Tony winning Buckley admitted he was "a tough act to follow."

"And we finally got the song of this concert’s title – “Santa Baby” – in another remarkable encore, in which a troupe of extremely buff and half-naked men were the backup singers for the drag chanteuse now known as “Arnaldo!” (with his own exclamation point). Let’s just say it was all highly entertaining."

C'est Si Bon!  A Tribute to Eartha Kitt

 

The Dorothy Bullit Cabaret at ACT, Seattle

"... the finest moments came with tunes less familiar. "Waray Waray" — in Tagalog, Arnaldo!'s first language — was a special treat, prompting a fond reminiscence of the sense of connection he felt with the language-hopping Kitt upon his first encounter with her work... "

Julia's On Broadway, Seattle

"Seattle cabaret audiences have been entertained by "Drag Chanteuse" Arnaldo! for years. With an unbelievable voice, the songstress has played sold-out shows in small stages and large theaters. I saw Arnaldo! perform an Eartha Kitt tribute Wednesday night and two things happened - I am now a fan of both Kitt and Arnaldo! "

Just An Old Fashioned Girl
The Duplex, New York


"Arnaldo is not just another drag act. Arnaldo is "Just An Old Fashioned Girl" and about as close to an old time night club chanteuse as we're likely to find on today's scene. Armed with an hour's worth of well-chosen songs, fun banter and laid back ease with an audience, this drag is no drag. He's the real deal in a world where prejudices and quick judgements are too often the norm."

Arnaldo! The Holiday Show

The Red Room, Puerto Vallarta, MX

 

"Vallarta’s own Bob Bruneau accompanied his friend and cabaret partner Arnaldo!, also from Seattle, in a stylish, sophisticated mini-concert <edit>. I happened to be sitting with Kim Kuzma tucked in a corner and able to quietly exchange comments. For Kim to be impressed - first with Bob’s impeccable piano playing – and second, with Arnaldo’s! perfect pitch is high praise indeed; I concur. Arnaldo!, drag chanteuse extraordinaire, will be back next season."
