BWW Review: Barb Jungr & John McDaniel 'Come Together' To Perform Iconic Beatles Songs With Eloquence, Sincerity, and Freshness at Feinstein's/54 BelowBWW Review: Barb Jungr & John McDaniel 'Come Together' To Perform Iconic Beatles Songs With Eloquence, Sincerity, and Freshness at Feinstein's/54 Below
