Patrick DeGennaro's last two Birdland appearances were sold out smash hits - his debut show ("The Bacharach Songbook") earned him the 2007 MAC Award for Outstanding Male Vocalist, and his last show's opening song, "Friend" garnered a 2008 MAC nomination for Song Of The Year. Often compared to Billy Joel and Elton John for his classic pop/rock style, DeGennaro's vocals are in a league of their own. From hard-edged pop-rock, gospel and funk to silky smooth r&b, and romantic ballads, DeGennaro's concerts are always a satisfying mix of musical styles. DeGennaro and his band (Alec Berlin: Guitar, Randy Landau: Bass, Clayton Craddock: Drums, John Roggie: Keyboards) have more original tunes planned for this outing, plus a usual slew of classics.
For this performance, DeGennaro has invited a special guest, Annie Golden, star of the films "Hair" and "12 Monkeys," and the Broadway shows The Full Monty and Assassins. They have some show-stopping duets planned as well as an original collaboration, "Letting Go."
