Eddie Bruce: Once in a Lifetime
The Music of Anthony Newley
From Broadway to Willie Wonka
Friday & Saturday, March 29 & 30 at 9:45pm

Birdland Theater is proud to present singer/bandleader Eddie Bruce in “Once In A Lifetime: The Music of Anthony Newley” for two nights, March 29 and 30 at 9:45pm. Dean Schneider will be Musical Director, with Boots Maelson on bass and Daniel Glass on drums.

Singer and bandleader Eddie Bruce, whose singular celebrations of Tony Bennett, The Best of Broadway, and Frank Sinatra has played to sold out houses from Feinstein's to Atlantic City, stars in an electrifying, mesmerizing and unforgettable tribute to Anthony Newley, one of most distinctive and incomparable talents in show business. Newley was an actor, singer, composer and writer who had his first starring role in films at the age of 16, composed hit musicals and songs, topped the hit parade himself as a pop star, played everything from romantic leads to quirky character roles in movies, starred on both the West End and Broadway stages, and became a favorite of cabaret audiences from New York to Las Vegas.

For more than four decades, cabaret artist, orchestra leader, and television/radio personality Eddie Bruce has been an entertainment industry force. Some venues include Resorts, Harrahs and the Borgota in Atlantic City; Feinstein’s, The Metropolitan Room and Don’t Tell Mama in New York; Ambler Act II Playhouse in Ambler, PA; Ocean City Music Pier with the Ocean City Pops; Kimmel Center with the Philly Pops; and in the Philadelphia area, Suzanne Roberts Theatre, Prince Musical Theatre, The Rrazz Rooms, The Celebrity Room at Dino’s Backstage, Chris’ Jazz Café’; and other points South and West. His recent, blockbuster performance tributes to the famed Latin Casino nightclub made newspaper and television headlines, and electrified and mesmerized sold out houses at World Café’ Live and Drexel University’s Mandell Theatre. Further, the Eddie Bruce Orchestra, which has reached legendary status after more than 40 years, has entertained at every major society and corporate gala extant, and Eddie has brought the sheer joy of his music and personality to generations of families from New England to South Florida. And his appearances as the host of the nationally-broadcast "Dancin' on Air" television show, and long-running WWDB Radio talk show continue to be fondly remembered.
