TERESE GENECCO: Reviews

NITELIFE EXCHANGE NYC:  TERESE GENECCO SINGS ELVIS PRESLEY!  As a part of Under The Covers, the New York Nightlife Award winning series produced by Lennie Watts, Terese Genecco sings this ground-breaking album from start to finish, in a groundbreaking live performance, accompanied by Musical Director Sean Harkness on the guitar!. From the lilting blues – ballad arrangement of "Blue Suede Shoes" to the rocking "Just Because," Ms. Genecco presents Elvis' self-titled first album, Elvis Presley (recorded in 1954, 1955 and 1956), track by track, with a twist – every song is sung to a different beat than the original.  I warn you, this is not your mother's Elvis... A perfect evening... Whether you are a devout Elvis fan, or a devout Terese Genecco fan, or both, this is a great show not to be missed!  CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO READ THE ENTIRE REVIEW.
