Daniel Reichard Returns to Birdland

In “Mr. Blue Sky”

Monday August 14th at 7pm

The Broadway at Birdland concert series is excited to welcome back Daniel Reichard for his new summertime club act, “Mr. Blue Sky” on August 14th at 7pm. Reichard, who created the role of Bob Gaudio in the Original Broadway Cast of Jersey Boys and currently tours the world as a founding member of the vocal group, “The Midtown Men,” will be joined onstage by a full-band, offering an eclectic evening of iconic songs and hilarious stories.


“Mr. Blue Sky” is a musical celebration of the summer season, drawing inspiration from the soundtrack of Reichard’s childhood. “I was born on a hot June evening, and raised the eighth of nine children, so there were always a lot of different kinds of music playing, especially during the summer months,” Reichard recalls. “This show is going to be nostalgic in that way, presenting songs I’ve enjoyed since I was a child and others that I have grown to understand more deeply as an adult. Beyond the music, I am exploring the broad range of experiences and emotions that summers can bring.”


The program will draw from the catalogues of artists such as Ray Charles, Adele, Fleetwood Mac, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Paul Simon. Fans of Broadway music will also get to enjoy Reichard’s signature renditions of songs by composers including Leonard Bernstein and Henry Mancini.


Special guests will include Grammy-Award-winning songwriter, pianist, and singer, Billy Stritch, and acclaimed cellist, Elad Kabilio. Reichard will also be joined onstage by his best friends, Broadway and Off-Broadway veterans, Patrick McCollum, Christopher Spaulding, Ben Knox, Ben Gettinger, Joey Dudding, and Rob Eggleston. His musicians will include David Cinquegrana (guitar), Brian Holtz (bass), Alex Wyatt (drums) and Chris Smucker (reeds).


The Broadway at Birdland concert series takes place every week on the historic Birdland stage, which is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Theater District.
