Tom Wopat to Celebrate I'VE GOT YOUR NUMBER Album at the Stage at Rockwells, 5/9

Tom Wopat, star of stage, screen and TV will perform in support of his latest critically-acclaimed recording I've Got Your Number at the Stage at Rockwells on Friday, May 9, 2014 (105 Wolfs Lane, Pelham, NY 10803). Showtimes 7:15 PM & 9:30 PM. Tickets: $30 w/ $10 Food & Beverage Minimum. For more, call 888-983-2785 or email info@rockwellsusa.com.

Originally released in February of 2013 in digital and CD formats, a limited edition, deluxe vinyl edition was recently made available. The album pays homage to the big band 'Mad Men' era, with Wopat performing classics from the Great American Songbook and contemporary songs from artists such as Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor-- transforming them into jazz-tinged renditions. The hand-numbered limited vinyl edition also includes the bonus tracks "That's Life" and Tom's original song "Thailand Sea," plus in-studio photos and personal notes from producer David Finck and Tom.

The past year has been a banner year for Wopat in all areas of entertainment; including the feature film, "Django Unchained," and most recently the award-winning Broadway show "A Trip to Bountiful" with Cicely Tyson. Since its release, I've Got Your Number, has been the recipient of much critical acclaim from media outlets such as the Huffington Post, Jazziz, All Music Guide, USA Today, Examiner, Times Square Chronicles, and many more. With a 30-piece orchestra and stellar arrangements by Tedd Firth, Henry Hay and John Oddo, the album is a true nod to the orchestra/big band hybrid of the '60s and '70s.

"It is only fitting that we release this album on vinyl," states Tom. "We've evoked the spirit of the New York supper club era and the cool vibe of the Mad Men days when vinyl recordings were supreme!"

With I've Got Your Number Tom truly feels he has found his stride. "Performing these songs the way we do on this recording is the most creative thing I do," Wopat concludes. "It's extremely satisfying and fulfilling. And as long as it feels that way, I'm going to keep right on doing it."
