"Vocalist TONI BYRD invited guests to a "date night" at Cafe Vena in The Vinings area of Cobb County, Atlanta. The deal was, she, along with pianist RANDY HUDSON, would provide a musical mood for a wonderful evening at a warm intimate venue, we would provide our date. Throw in a sumptuous meal, a little dancing in the aisles and a wonderful evening it turned out to be. Ms. Byrd's sets included covers of Billy Holiday, Dinah Washington, ...and Barbara Streisand songs which worked well with the cozy atmosphere away from a rainy day. Thanks Toni, my date's (wife) stamp of approval resulted in a win-win arrangement"
