Big news for the August 1st Concerts for City Greens – the third concert of the season is a tribute to the music of rock ‘n roll legend, Neil Sedaka, featuring the man himself!!!
You’d better come early and bring your own chair on: Wednesday August 1 at 6:30pm at Tudor City Greens. (Rain date: Thursday August 2 at 6:30pm.) Paying tribute to the Brooklyn-born hit maker “Love Will Keep Us Together – the Songs of Neil Sedaka” stars the ASCAP Award-winning singer-songwriter Jim Van Slyke, the MAC-winning harmony group Marquee Five, and the actress Carole Demas, co-star of TV’s Magic Garden, and the original Sandy in “Grease.” Also appearing in this special tribute to Sedaka’s six decade-long career will be his niece, newcomer Holland Grossman, who makes her Broadway debut in “Rebecca.”
The Broadway and cabaret veteran Raissa Katona Bennett is the evening’s host and producer. Returning as series regulars are Bennett’s side-kicking drummer — the 4-time MAC & 2-time Bistro Award-winning big band innovator Terese Genecco; the Windham Hill recording artist Sean Harkness on guitar (2012 MAC Recording of the Year), and the composer-pianist Bill Zeffiro. The concert’s featured instrumentalists are David Caldwell, Kenneth Gartman and Ian Herman on piano, and Skip Ward and Matt Scharfglass on bass
