Benjamin Eakeley and his jazz band returned to swing at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
The music captured the 1930’s, a decade of big band music that lifted spirits out of the Great Depression and became the foundation of the great American songbook.
The performance featured songs by Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Sammy Fein, and more.
Benjamin Eakeley has appeared on Broadway in the revivals of She Loves Me, Cabaret, On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever, and Sweeney Todd. He made his cabaret debut in 2016 with sold-out performances of Broadway Swinger at Feinstein’s/54 Below.
T2C’s Genevieve Rafter Keddy was there.
