With Special Guests Giuseppe Bausillio (Newsies), Riley Costello (Bye Bye Birdie), Noah Galvin (The Burnt Part Boys), Jason Gotay (Spiderman), Arielle Jacobs (In the Heights), Anthony Lee Medina (Spring Awakening National Tour)
After years of writing shows about everything from creationists, Afghan dancing boys and a Frenchman with a penchant for identity theft, Tim Rosser and Charlie Sohne have had it with each other. They have therefore both decided to launch their solo careers at Birdland. On the same night. At the same time. See them as they bicker over who wrote what in their catalog of songs and decide for yourself who will join the ranks of breakout solo acts like Beyoncé and Justin Timberlake - and who will be relegated to the dustbin of history. Buy your tickets now and witness the pair onstage together for the very last time until their inevitable reunion concert.
All seats $25, $10 minimum
February 3 (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 minimum
February 4-8 (Tuesday-Saturday) at 8:30 & 11PM
4 Generations of Miles
with Jimmy Cobb, Mike Stern, Buster Williams and Sonny Fortune
MiLes Davis' career as a trumpeter, composer and bandleader is synonymous with the stylistic evolution of jazz. His ensembles and recordings are the benchmarks for cool, post-bop and fusion as evidenced by these four-generations of artists who first gained recognition under Davis' leadership. Drummer Jimmy Cobb appeared on one of the most popular and influential recordings in history, "Kind of Blue" (1959) while guitarist Mike Stern ("We Want Miles," 1981), bassist Buster Williams ("Directions," 1960s) and alto saxophonist Sonny Fortune ("Big Fun," 1974) have the post-bop and fusion bases well covered.
All seats $40, $10 minimum
February 5 (Wednesday) at 5:30PM
