Lesley Gore Performs 60s Chart Toppers At Feinstein's 5/5-5/9

FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed "Best of New York" by New York Magazine, and "an invaluable New York institution" by The New York Post, continues its 10th Anniversary season with the debut engagement of Oscar-nominated 60s legend Lesley Gore from May 5 to 9. She will perform a selection of her 60s chart-toppers like "It's My Party," "You Don't Own Me" and "Maybe I Know," as well as contemporary pop classics. The show runs at the Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).

Lesley Gore - born in Brooklyn and raised in Tenafly, New Jersey - was discovered by music legend Quincy Jones and recorded "It's My Party" when she was just 16 years old. In the years that followed, she helped create the soundtrack of the 1960s with over two dozen chart hits. The most commercially successful solo artist of the "Girl Group" era, Gore paved the way for future generations of independent female vocalists from Pat Benatar to Madonna and Gwen Stefani.

After years of success as a platinum-selling pop singer, Gore attended Sarah Lawrence College and eventually began writing her own music. She earned an Academy Award nomination for co-writing "Out Here On My Own" for the film Fame and co-wrote "My Secret Love" for Allison Anders's film Grace of My Heart, starring Brigit Fonda. In 2005, Gore returned to the recording studio to record Ever Since, which received critical acclaim from The New York Times, Rolling Stone and Billboard. In addition to extensive national radio coverage, music from the album was featured on "CSI: Miami," "The L Word," and the Jeff Lipsky-directed film Flannel Pajamas. Lesley's compositions have been recorded by Patti Austin, Bernadette Peters, Dusty Springfield, and Quincy Jones, among many others.

FEINSTEIN'S AT LOEWS REGENCY will play the following schedule: Tuesday through Thursday at 8:30 PM. The weekend schedule presents shows on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 PM and 10:30 PM. All shows have a $60.00 cover with $75.00 premium seats, both with a $40.00 food and beverage minimum. Jackets are suggested but not required.
