Michael Andrew has many credits to his name. He was the headline singer and band-leader at the world famous Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center in New York City.
He also performed that coveted role at Merv Griffin’s “Coconut Club” across the country in Beverly Hills, California. While on “Larry King Live,” Merv called Michael Andrew “one of the great singers of all time.” This show, developed specifically for our 10x10 audience, pays tribute to the writers of the "American Songbook," including Johnny Mercer, Sammy Cahn, the Gershwins and Frank Sinatra. Celebrate some of history’s most iconic composers and singers led by “one of the best talents to come down the pike in 50 years” (Jerry Lewis).
For this special concert, curated specifically for Walton Arts Center, he will be accompanied by the Fayetteville Jazz Collective. They are a professional jazz big-band made up of local musicians in Northwest Arkansas.
