Lu Mitchell began her career in the late sixties by performing at the now legendary Rubaiyat in Dallas, Texas. She has appeared in concerts throughout the United States and recently in Ireland. She is in demand as an after-dinner entertainer; and today she and her band Catch-23 are consistent favorites at Dallas’ Pocket Sandwich Theatre.
A prolific songwriter, Lu has become known for her clever and witty social commentary. Her songbook Singing For Her Sanity contains songs about TV evangelists, doctors, garage sales, and anything else that tickles her sense of the absurd in this land of Big Macs, Mammograms, and The Internet. She has eleven CDs to her credit.
A few of her irreverent ditties are:
Tiger Woods’ Women
It’s Time To Eat Again (the cruise song)
Feel Me Up (the airport security song)
