After headlining sold out celebrated appearances on concert stages and night clubs around the globe over the last few years, the recent critically acclaimed success of Jim Van Slyke's latest showcase, The Sedaka Show, has taken him to a new plateau in his career. After seeing the show himself, Neil Sedaka gushed, "I had the great pleasure of seeing Jim Van Slyke perform a revue of my songs. It blew me away! The voice, the stage presence, the thought and preparation that went into the cabaret were all superb. I've seen many singers over the years do my songs, but I think Jim has the potential of becoming an important artist. His performance exceeded my expectations. I can sincerely say that he would be a treat for any venue given the chance."
