Here's how "Volume 2" of From Here & There is billed: "After his debut concert at 54 Below sold out in record time, Drew Gasparini and friends return with Volume 2 of From Here & There.... Volume 1 was a compilation of rock songs from all over Drew's catalogue but the brand new set list for January will showcase his compositions for musical theatre, featuring a number of songs from his award-winning musicals Crazy, Just Like Me and Make Me Bad (book by Alex Brightman), as well as the premiere of new songs from one of his latest projects, The Wreck. And of course, no Gasparini concert is complete without a good ol' jam session. Overheard following Volume 1 of From Here & There in December: 'Not only was this show super sold-out, but it also filled my heart to capacity!' And from Drew's long-time supporter (and mother), Kele Gasparini: 'Drew who?'"
