By Charlotte Robinson, May 08, 2024

The Billy Stritch Trio is performing at the Birdland Theater Friday May 10th through Sunday May 12th for two shows nightly at 7P & 9:30P. Stritch stated, “I’m so delighted to be returning to the Birdland Theater for six shows this weekend! Birdland has long been my performing home in New York & it’s an honor to be part of the family there. I’ll be joined by Michael O’Brien on bass & Eric Halvorson on drums & we can’t wait to present our set of spring songs, swing songs & much, much more!” Billy Stritch is one of the premier singer-pianists on the New York & national jazz & cabaret scenes. A chance meeting with Liza Minnelli in March of 1991 resulted in her asking him to create vocal arrangements for the record-breaking extravaganza Liza Stepping Out at Radio City Music Hall. In addition to his 25-year collaboration with Liza, Billy toured with the legendary Tony Bennett as Tony’s pianist & musical director. As a solo entertainer Stritch has performed his own shows including tributes to Mel TormĂ© & Cy Coleman in concert halls & nightclubs across the country. Billy also serves as musical director for such leading vocalists as Linda Eder, Christine Ebersole & Linda Lavin. When not on the road he’s the pianist for Jim Caruso’s Cast Party open mic night every Monday at Birdland Jazz Club. Stritch has been named Best Musical Director 4 times by BroadwayWorld & Billy’s 2022 birthday engagement at Birdland was the winner of Best Vocal Jazz Show of the year. Birdland Theater is located at 315 West 44th Street in NYC & tickets run from $30 to $40. For Info & Tix…
