THE MUSIC OF OUR LIVES
The history of Rock N’ Roll would be incomplete without the innumerable contributions of Neil Sedaka. Sedaka has written, performed, produced, and inspired countless songs including “Breaking Up is Hard to Do,” “Stupid Cupid,” “Where the Boys Are,” “Calendar Girl,” “Laughter in the Rain,” “Love Will Keep Us Together,” and wrote songs for Frank Sinatra (“The Hunger Years”), Elvis Presley (“Solitaire”), Tom Jones and The Fifth Dimension.
With a career that spans six decades, Sedaka never ceases to amaze. A consummate musician, a unique vocalist, an ageless song writing talent and devoted entertainer, this evening will make for an extraordinary memory.
