Photo Coverage: Benjamin Eakeley Returns to 54 Below

Benjamin Eakeley brought Broadway Swinger, Vol. 2: All Of Me to Feinstein's/54 Below last night!

Benjamin Eakeley and his jazz band returned to swing through the 1930s-a decade of big band music that lifted spirits out of the Great Depression and became the foundation of the great American songbook. The performance featured songs by Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Sammy Fein, and more.

BroadwayWorld was there for the big event and you can check out photos below!

Benjamin Eakeley has appeared on Broadway in the revivals of She Loves Me, Cabaret, On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever, and Sweeney Todd. He made his cabaret debut in 2016 with sold-out performances of Broadway Swinger at Feinstein's/54 Below. For his work on Broadway Swinger, Cabaret Scenes likened him to a "seasoned cabaret star" and BroadwayWorld praised his "bewitching stage presence" with "decidedly sensual power and lush jazz vocals."
