"Kenn Boisinger: Plugged"
To Play Monday, April 10 at Birdland Jazz Club

Jazz history is certain to be made when everyone's favorite crooner and the self-proclaimed New Voice of Jazz, Kenn Boisinger, offers up a uniquely jazzy, provocative and undeniably loud night of musical merriment. Featuring standards from Kenn's own songbook, a few jazz classics and disquieting anecdotes from Kenn's personal life, Kenn Boisinger: Plugged will have you singing along, tapping your toes, and questioning your taste in entertainment.

10 Videos To Get Us Worked Up For WOMEN OF AN ERA Starring Hannah Jane At Chelsea Table + StageKenn Boisinger, who might or might not be compared to other great entertainers like Wayne Newton, Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck, is the twisted alter ego of Michael West (Forbidden Broadway, When Pigs Fly, NEWSical). For the past few years, Kenn has been delighting (and disturbing) cabaret audiences and critics with sold out shows at Birdland, an unprecedented 5 month residency at Green Room 42, and with his popular online virtual concerts.

BroadwayWorld exclaims "Michael West strikes comic gold. It's just enough to leave you coasting somewhere between insanity and hilarity. It's comic perfection." Known for his priceless takes on songs from the classic American songbook and original tunes such as "Is She a Call Girl, or Just a Girl I'd Like to Call?p", "I'm Turning COVID Into Lemonade", and "Daddy Drinks Because You Cry", expect his Birdland show to offer up a few new soon-to-be timeless originals, including "The Last One To Leave The Strip Club" and "Forever 57".

Since then, he has appeared in major venues throughout the continental United States; from Bangor, Maine to Hollywood (Florida) to the performing arts center on his beloved Staten Island, which Kenn and his family (his mother, Hilldred and his brother, Robbert) have called home since 1985. In addition to his many show business achievements, Kenn was Amway Regional Salesman of the Quarter in fall of 1989, and was Radio Shack Regional Manager of the Month for the Egbertville district of Staten Island in August of 1997.
