Feinstein will offer Swing in the Holidays through Dec. 30 at his namesake cabaret. Musical director John Oddo leads the 12-piece Winter Wonderland Big Band in a collection of holiday favorites and classic standards. The program will also include a tribute to the Tony-winning composer-lyricist Jerry Herman, who will celebrate his 80th birthday next year.
A five-time Grammy nominee, Michael Feinstein is often credited with reinvigorating interest in the American popular song. The crooner has performed in concert halls around the world and on Broadway and now co-owns his own nightclub, Feinstein's at Loews Regency. His numerous solo recordings include "The Sinatra Project," "Michael and George: Feinstein Sings Gershwin," "Big City Rhythms" "Romance On Film, Romance On Broadway," "Michael Feinstein with The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra," "Only One Life: The Songs of Jimmy Webb" and "Hopeless Romantics." Feinstein returned to Broadway this past season in the short-lived All About Me opposite Dame Edna Everage.
