Billy Stritch, Kevin Mahogany & More Set for Birdland, 3/10-16

Birdland Jazz Club has announced their wonderful line-up of excellent talent for March 10-16. Birdland will kick-off their outstanding week of programming with the following acts:

March 10 (Monday) at 7:00PM
Billy Stritch
"I've Got Your Number: The Jazz of Cy Coleman"

In this brand new show, Billy Stritch explores the pop/jazz side of the legendary songwriter Cy Coleman. Although Coleman is mainly known as the composer of a dozen legendary Broadway shows, he was quite prolific writing "stand alone" songs in the 50's and 60's, including such well-known titles as "The Best Is Yet To Come," "Witchcraft" and "It Amazes Me,"as well as more obscure gems co-written with Carolyn Leigh and Peggy Lee. This show was recently presented in London to rave reviews, receiving 4 Stars in the London Times. In this outing, Stritch will be accompanied by Tom Hubbard on bass and Ray Marchica on drums.
Side seats $30, Center Seats $40, $10 food/drink minimum

March 10 (Monday) at 9:30PM
Jim Caruso's Cast Party

Jim Caruso's Cast Party is a wildly popular weekly soiree that brings a sprinkling of Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night. It's a cool cabaret night-out enlivened by a hilariously impromptu variety show. Showbiz superstars, backed by Steve Doyle on bass, Tedd Firth on piano and Daniel Glass on drums, hit the stage alongside up-and-comers, serving up jaw-dropping music and general razzle-dazzle.
All tickets $25, $10 food/drink minimum

March 11 - 15 (Tuesday-Saturday) at 8:30PM & 11:00PM
Kevin Mahogany & Friends

In February 1993, vocalist Kevin Mahogany's debut album "Double Rainbow" met with instant acclaim. The LA Times called him, "the first truly gifted male vocalist to emerge in years." He recorded three more CDs for the Enja label before signing with Warner Brothers Records in 1995 where he released four more CDs and found a global audience. In 2002 Kevin moved to Telarc Records and released "Pride and Joy," a tribute to the music of Motown. Now, with his own label, Mahogany Jazz, eleven CDs as a leader and quite a few as a guest artist, Kevin has proven to be "the standout jazz vocalist of his generation." (Newsweek Magazine)
