This original production combines beloved songs from Tony Bennett's rich repertoire with Eddie's personal stories about Tony's impact on his life. Known as one of the premiere interpreters of Tony Bennett's music, Eddie includes songs that range from Tony's earlier tunes like "Because of You" and "Just in Time" to songs like "I Got Rhythm," "If I Ruled the World" and "Steppin' Out" that reintroduced Tony Bennett to the MTV generation. When Bruce's recording, "Bruce on Bennett," was released, Mark Fox, the president of the International Tony Bennett Appreciation Society said, "Everything ... vocals, accompaniment, song choices -- just right!"
This popular singer, who grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, receives raves from coast to coast. After seeing him perform in his NY supper club, Michael Feinstein said, "Eddie has a great voice and a wonderful stage presence." After seeing his Tony Bennett show at the Metropolitan Room in New York, Barbara and Scott Siegel called Eddie "A Triumph" in their Talkinbroadway.com column and wrote that his "comic effect ... will win you over" and "his stories are wonderfully engaging and his song selection is right on the money."
