I am a passionate fan of the Great American Songbook and I am proud of the show that we present week in and week out on Saturday nights at the Fairmont, Battery Wharf and at select other venues. Our show is really aimed at those people who love the songs of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Bobby Darin. Those folks who enjoy listening to the great songs of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Rodgers & Hart and Johnny Mercer, but who want vocals too, not just the great melodies. I try to credit the composers and, occasionally, tell a story or two about the songs during the course of a show. We also throw a few surprises in every once in a while, such as the great Elvis ballads, “Love Letters” and “It Hurts Me” to go along with standards such as “Night And Day,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “All Of Me” and, my own personal favorite, “How Do You Keep The Music Play”, the great song by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, with music by Michelle Legrand. We are voice, keyboards and acoustic bass.
