The Broadway at Birdland concert series is proud to announce Broadway and concert star Daniel Reichard will be appearing at Birdland on Monday, August 4th at 7 PM. Reichard, who has performed dozens of sold-out engagements all over New York City throughout the years, will be making his solo debut at Birdland with this show.

The evening of music will feature treasured hits by classic songwriters. Reichard writes, "I want this evening to be a celebration of many different eras of music. My heart has always had a deep passion for the Great American Songbook. I think the songs of the 30s and 40s and 50s are still so stylish and resonant. Songs from the Golden Age of Broadway will be the jumping-off point for this show. We will move on to the incredible music of the 60s and will work our way up to the music played by artists today. This is a show for multiple generations and everyone will hopefully get something out of hearing these brilliant songs played in the same program. Also, I may wear shorts and show off my legs."

The evening of treasured songs will feature songs by iconic songwriters such as Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe, Johnny Mercer, Burt Bacharach, Paul Simon, and Jason Mraz. Reichard will be joined onstage by a band of five musicians.

Daniel Reichard, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, is best known for his portrayal of chief songwriter and original Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio in the box-office smash Jersey Boys, a role he originated both on Broadway and in the La Jolla Playhouse premiere. He followed Jersey Boys with a critically acclaimed performance as Candide in Leonard Bernstein's Candide at the New York City Opera. Daniel made his New York City debut after graduating with a BFA from the University of Michigan with the original cast in the world-famous Forbidden Broadway: 20th Anniversary Celebration. His signature style and enormous talent paved the way to starring roles in New York City and beyond, including his triumphant portrayal of artist and social activist Keith Haring in Radiant Baby at Joe Papp's Public Theater; Man in The Thing About Men, whose cast album he also appears on; and Emmet in the world premiere of the musical version of Jim Henson's Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas at the Goodspeed Opera House. Regional credits include The MUNY, Weston Playhouse, North Shore Music Theater, and the Eugene O'Neill Theatre. As a concert singer, Daniel has had sold-out engagements at New York City's Joe's Pub, Metropolitan Room and Ars Nova. Other concert appearances include Symphony Space, The Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater, BB Kings, Town Hall, Firebird and the Cutting Room, as well as appearances with the Arkansas and Grand Rapids Symphonies. He can be seen as Frankie in the 2009 film version of the international hit musical comedy "Forever Plaid." Currently, he is touring the continent with his former Jersey Boys colleagues as The Midtown Men, a highly successful vocal group that has performed over 300 major concerts together.
