LANDAU EUGENE MURPHY JR., May 30 at 11PM:
Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., the runaway season six winner of NBC TV's America's Got Talent, has toured across the country to sold-out audiences, but New York City maintains a very special place in his heart. It's here that Landau waited in line for over fourteen hours for the chance to audition for AGT judges for his shot at stardom. Landau aced the audition and subsequent performances on the top rated TV talent competition with his smooth vocal take on The Great American Songbook classics from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Cole Porter and more, all of which he'll be performing LIVE at his upcoming performance at 54 Below. After winning a million dollars and a headlining slot at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Landau's debut CD That's Life on Columbia Records (produced by Grammy winner Steve Tyrell) captured #1 on the Billboard Jazz charts. Murphy's 2013 follow-up Christmas Made For Two CD was a best selling benefit fundraising vehicle for The Children's Home Society of West Virginia, one of many Mountain State charities Landau has supported generously with his time and talent, helping raise over a million dollars for his fellow West Virginians. Landau's recent tour of China and his visit to U.S. Troops in Germany are among his career highlights, which also includes performances with Patti Labelle and The Temptations and appearances at The Apollo Theater, Hollywood's Catalina Club, The California State Fair and TV's The View, The Talk, The Anderson Cooper Show, Fox and Friends, Piers Morgan Tonight, The Wendy Williams Show and both the Macy's and Hollywood Christmas parades. Landau has just completed recording tracks for his upcoming third album at the famed Capitol Records Studio "B" in Hollywood, where his Sinatra, Dean, Nat, Judy Garland and dozens more recorded some of their biggest hits. Landau is honored to make his 54 Below debut in conjunction with his book signing appearance the previous day at Book Expo America at the Javitz Center, where his motivational biography Landau-From Washing Cars to Hollywood Star spent several weeks at #1 on the Amazon.com Jazz Books chart and received a "Mom's Choice" award. In June 2014, Landau will receive the Jaycees Ten Outstanding Young Americans award, sharing the honor with previous recipients that include Elvis Presley, Jack and Bobby Kennedy, Bill Clinton and fellow West Virginian Chuck Yeager. $30-40 cover charge. $25 food & beverage minimum.
