FEINSTEIN’S AT LOEWS REGENCY
AWARD WINNING SINGER/SONGWRITER
THE JOHNNY RODGERS BAND
“POP… with pizAZZ”
JULY 17 & 18
FEINSTEIN’S AT LOEWS REGENCY, the nightclub proclaimed “Best of New York” by New York Magazine, and “an invaluable New York institution” by The New York Post, continues its 10th Anniversary season with the debut of award winning singer/songwriter/pianist Johnny Rodgers and the Johnny Rodgers Band in their new show “Pop… with pizAZZ” on July 17 and 18. For “Pop… with pizAZZ” Johnny and his band will present tunes from the “new” American Song Book as well as timeless favorites. The show – directed by Mark Waldrop and featuring Brian Glassman on bass, Danny Mallon on drums, Joe Ravo on guitar and special guest Tedd Firth on piano – runs at Regency Hotel (540 Park Avenue at 61st Street).
For his show at Feinstein’s JOHNNY RODGERS – described as “a combination of Elton John, Billy Joel and James Taylor all rolled into one,” by Show Business Weekly and "a first-rate singer songwriter with robust vocals and exuberant pianism" by the Chicago Tribune – will celebrate his concurrent CD EP releases Bound Together and Let’s Make A Date which featured special guest Liza Minnelli. Songs will include Rodgers indie/pop flavored originals such as the touching “Father’s Day” ballad, the rally cry title track, “Bound Together” and the Beatlesque “Cry for Freedom.” The show will also feature his new radio single “The Best of You In Me” and the Randy Newman classic “You Can Leave Your Hat On”, which Rodgers performed at many of Minnelli’s concerts.
