Eddie Bruce is a natural performer - he always has been! A passionate fan of jazz standards, especially the music of Tony Bennett, it's no surprise that he has become one of the nation's foremost interpreters of Bennett's music. His shows include songs written by such legendary composers and lyricists as Sammy Cahn and Johnny Mercer and in addition to the music sung by Bennett, he sings the music made popular by Anthony Newley, Sammy Davis, Jr, Frank Sinatra and many others. What makes Eddie's performances stand out is his engaging style. Ask Michael Feinstein who said after a recent Feinstein's performance in New York, "Eddie Bruce has a wonderful voice. And, his stage presence, tone and breath control are just as good."
Singing and performing all his life, Eddie began in the media as a child-star in Philadelphia, going on to become one of the region's most popular bandleaders and masters of ceremonies. Never one to shy away from the media, Eddie was a radio talk- show host for many years on WWDB-FM and the original host of "Dancin' on Air," a popular TV show in the 80's. He was seen repeatedly this past year hosting the reunion shows of "Dancin' on Air" on Channel 17, WPHL-TV.
It's as if Eddie has combined all his experiences and wrapped them in a glorious package of the consummate entertainer who knows instinctively how to engage his audiences. Eddie performs across the country - from Philadelphia to New York and LA. He is proud to have performed with The Philly POPS recently with glowing reviews and cheers from the audience. He has performed with the Ocean City Pops and The Hershey Symphony with invitations for return engagements. In New York, he was practically a "regular" at Feinstein's, until it closed in December 2012. When he presented his "Bruce on Bennett" show at the Prince Music Theater in Philadelphia, he was their #1 box office attraction in the history of their cabaret.
Titan of American Popular Song and music of the Great White Way, acclaimed singer and bandleader Eddie Bruce, performs his delightfully singular take on Broadway and the stories behind the songs. With stellar accompaniment by The Tom Adams Trio, songs will include compositions from “Man of La Mancha,” to music composed by giants like Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, and the team of Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse. One of the show’s certifiable highlights will be songs from a show that Eddie Bruce co-produced: The now legendary “Legs Diamond” and starring Peter Allen.
