“It’s old-school cabaret with a modern sensibility as the former Advocate editor releases his first album (available Tuesday) and lets his rich baritone soar over a number of familiar standards from artists ranging from Cole Porter to Lady Gaga, many of which get cheeky new arrangements. Check out his cover of Idina Menzel’s marriage equality anthem “Gorgeous” below.”
Got a nice write-up on the Broadway Melodies show I did with Steve Fry for the Culver City Historical Society. At least I think it’s a nice write-up …
Scott McPherson wrote this this super-nice, super politically correct review of my show on The Advocate Art Department’s website:
Let me preface this story by saying none of this was not my idea. Yet I’m a sucker for love. And attention.
And I have a really hard time saying no. Which means if you ask me to sing at your wedding and I can clear my not-so-busy schedule, I’m there. Even if it means learning some new tunes and putting my own special spin on them.
From Giving ‘Til It Hurts You, 2004. Live at the Split.Id Theater.
NOTE: The video was secretly taken by a crazed fan and later posted on a Finnish website. After being seized by INTERPOL, the tape was deemed unsuitable for public viewing due to its poor sound and picture quality and held in a vault pending legal action.
My attempts to get the L.A. Weekly to see my show were unsuccessful. But thankfully, a gentleman by the name of Barry Goold gave me this sort of nice write-up. I don’t actually know him but I’m grateful he came to the show, which he said was “pretty good.” (As far as my live performances go, it’s my best review to date.)
Singing the National Anthem at Dodger Stadium was a blast. Tons of friends came to cheer me on. John Ritter was there. I felt so loved.
If you’re in or near Los Angeles tomorrow, come watch the Dodgers play the Padres. It’s certain to be an exciting scrimmage or whatever they say in baseball.
