For more than four decades, cabaret artist and orchestra leader Eddie Bruce has been an entertainment industry force. His critically acclaimed salutes to Tony Bennett, Anthony Newley, Frank Sinatra and The Best of Broadway have sold out venues of every size continue to delight audiences of all ages. Some of those venues include Resorts, Harrahs and the Borgota in Atlantic City; Feinstein's/54 Below, The Metropolitan Room, Birdland Theatre, and Don't Tell Mama in New York; Ambler Act II Playhouse in Ambler, PA; Ocean City Music Pier with the Ocean City Pops; Kimmel Center with the Philly Pops; and in the Philadelphia area, Suzanne Roberts Theatre, Prince Musical Theatre, The Rrazz Rooms, The Celebrity Room at Dino's Backstage, Chris' Jazz Café'; and other points South and West.
His recent, blockbuster performance tributes to the famed Latin Casino nightclub made newspaper and television headlines, and and mesmerized sold out houses at World Café' Live and Drexel University's Mandell Theatre.
Further, the Eddie Bruce Orchestra, which has reached legendary status after more than 40 years, has entertained at every major society and corporate gala extant, and Eddie has brought the sheer joy of his music and personality to generations of families from New England to South Florida. And his appearances as the host of the nationally-broadcast "Dancin' on Air" television show, and long-running WWDB Radio talk show continue to be fondly remembered.
We don't hear the words "electrifying" and "mesmerizing" too much anymore as applied to entertainers and the world of entertainment. As applied to the show business tradition-yesterday, today and tomorrow-Eddie Bruce personifies both.
