Pop-rock band GrooveLily makes their Birdland debut Sleeping Beauty Wakes. In this Ovation Award-winning hit musical from the authors of the hit Striking 12, band members Brendan Milburn, Valerie Vigoda and Gene Lewin perform the magical story in an unforgettable evening of song and laughter. The musical takes the well-known fairy tale and gives it a decidedly modern twist.
New York City trio GrooveLily inhabits that contemporary space where creative musicians ignore the boundaries laid down by words like rock, folk, jazz and pop. Intelligent original songs with no shortage of wit connect lush musical textures and soaring vocals with the blazing six-string electric violin of Valerie Vigoda, the lightning-fingered piano of Brendan Milburn, and the joyful drums of Gene Lewin. With backgrounds in classical music, musical theater, jazz and rock, the three members of GrooveLily are making a new music that's all their own. The success of their first concert-musical, the critically- acclaimed holiday show Striking 12, has led them farther into the world of theater, where they have carved out a unique niche as a rock band writing and performing shows.
