“…easily one of the most loving and well-crafted homage shows of the year.” -Stephen Hanks, Broadwayworld.com
“A CLASS ACT! With finesse and respect for the material, Grace Cosgrove elegantly elevates all she sings when she digs deep, and strikes gold.” -Rob Lester, Cabaret Scenes
Laura’s music could make you laugh and cry at the same time and she broke all the rules. Songwriters who came after her like Elton John, Ricki Lee Jones, Suzanne Vega, Todd Rundgren, Elvis Costello and Tori Amos tip their hats to her influence. I’ve been enthralled with Laura Nyro’s music since my first listen as a teenager. Please join me and my AMAZING BAND for this celebration of Laura Nyro’s music!
My pianist is Clifford Carter, who has played with James Taylor, Natalie Cole, Michael Feinstein, and Paul Simon among others. My guitarist is Jack Cavari, the versatile NYC session and Broadway musician. Jason Di Matteo, plays bass and has traveled the world with Burnt Sugar, Susan Werner and more. Margaret Dorn (background vocals) has sung across a broad range of genres with artists such as Celine Dion, Bette Midler, Garth Brooks, Michael McDonald, and Manhattan Transfer. Emily Bindiger (background vocals) also has a range of versatile credits to her name – Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, Steve Van Zandt, Jewel, Ann Hampton Callaway and The Accidentals.
