"And our 10th anniversary season promises to be bigger and better than ever. Not only are many of our Royal Room favorites returning like Marilyn Maye, Peter Cincotti, Jack Jones, Andrea Marcovicci, The Four Freshmen and Ann Hampton Callaway, we are also welcoming a couple of first-time headliners from Broadway, Clint Homes and Christine Ebersole," Everingham added.

"Of course, the incredible music at The Colony isn't limited to our fabulous Royal Room," said Russell. "The hotel's excellent Polo Steakhouse continues to present the popular Motown Friday Nights every week with the multi-talented R&B band Memory Lane, plus our weekly Cast Party with The Switzer Trio on Saturday nights always attracts a star-packed crowd."
