MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW
My View: Everyones Bucket List…Michael Feinstein and Marilyn Maye

His show is titled “I Happen To Like New York” and at opening night at Feinstein’s/54 Below New Yorkers happened to like Michael Feinstein in a very big way.  In fact from coast to coast when the words Great American Songbook are spoken it’s probably in the same sentence as the name Feinstein.  Known to music lovers everywhere as America’s ambassador of the songs that define our musical heritage for much of the 20th century, last night Michael thrilled an overflow audience at the club that has his name on the door.  From multi-platinum recordings that have earned him five Grammy Award nominations to his Emmy nominated PBS-TV specials, his acclaimed NPR series, and concerts spanning the globe, his work as an educator and archivist define Feinstein as one of the most important musical forces of our time.

Joining Michael from Aug 6-13 is special guest Marilyn Maye. Seeing Michael and Marilyn work together should be on everyone’s bucket list. Their chemistry produces a fun filled evening and their artistry arguably produces the most exceptional interpretations of some of the greatest music that American composers and lyricists have produced.   Marilyn is known to audiences around the world for her iconic eight-decade long career, which has included 76 appearances on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,” making her the most frequently heard singer in the program’s history. A masterful lyric interpreter, Marilyn is an artist for connoisseurs, renowned for her powerhouse delivery chatty rapport. Marilyn is the epitome of New York and the sophisticated, nostalgic era that we all long to be a part of.

Michale will be joined by Melissa Manchester for shows Aug. 15-20 and Jackie Evancho for shows Aug. 21, 22, 23.
