Bay Street Theater will present “Get Down With Dawnette: A Classic Variety Show” on Saturday at 8 p.m. Dawnette Darden, who has performed for 10 years with her own band, New Dawn, and more recently with the HooDoo Loungers, will host the program, which will be modeled after such classic television fare as “Laugh-In” and “The Carol Burnett Show.”
Ms. Darden will sing with her two bands as well as with special guests — Inda Eaton, Mama Lee and Rose Lawler, Marvin Joshua, Julia Minerva, a comedian, and Danny Ximo.
