I was thrilled a couple of weeks ago when a show business pal posted on my Facebook page that he had just received the June/July "Pride" issue of The Advocate magazine in the mail and, while thumbing through the pages, he had stumbled upon my picture and a short shout-out about my shows at The Iridium Jazz Club in NYC. I quickly picked up a copy, cut out my blurb from page 58, pasted it on the cover and posted it on Facebook. Since then, I've heard from friends around the world who subscribe to The…Read more
It's hard to believe I've been singing at The Iridium Jazz Club in New York City every month for four whole years but it's true! We've got two shows tomorrow night (at 8 & 10 pm) with some lovely lady guest stars (Karen Oberlin, Marissa Mulder, and KT Sullivan!) and then we gear up for the big 4 Year Anniversary Gala Concert and Blow Out event on Tuesday, March 26th, 2013! I will have a super star guest and a bunch of past guest stars in the show and I can't wait to celebrate this milestone achievement…Read more
I'm VERY excited about all of the recent developments with my concert events in New York City and I just have to gush a little about all of the reasons why!
For three and a half years, I have performed a monthly show at The Iridium on Broadway in New York City, and we're STILL going strong! My 8-piece "little big band" has developed into a formidable group of the top jazz and Broadway musicians New York has to offer and we continue to set the bar high with new arrangements of swingin' tunes…Read more
PAUL SAFY, JR.! I love this guy! Not only is he a native Upstate New Yorker, like me, (Buffalo, Rochester... just a quick ride down the Thruway!) but he swings hard and has a deep devotion to classic songs from the Great American Songbook and the stars who originally made them famous (Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, etc.) He's also a sweetheart. You don't find guys this nice in show biz these days.
Check him out on YouTube (link below) on NBC's "America's Got Talent" in the finals of Season…Read more
Pinch me. No, seriously. Pinch me! I cannot believe the cool stuff happening right now! Here's what's up:
I got a phone call yesterday from BILLY STRITCH. He's been out on tour with Liza Minnelli, Linda Lavin, Christine Ebersole, and with Jim Caruso and their now-traveling "Cast Party!" In between shows, Billy found the time to read a Facebook message I sent him last week asking him to appear with us at The Iridium in New York City on Sunday, November 6th. HE SAID YES! I think the thing I am most…Read more
Greetings Long Lost Friends & Brand New Fans!
I can't believe it's been four months since I sent out a newsletter or wrote on my blog to connect with you but I guess that's what happens when you are working hard, playing fast, and living in New York City (mostly!)
When last we met, I was about to welcome "The Legend" Steve Rossi as my special guest star at my regular monthly gig at The Iridium in NYC. Mr. Rossi was the singing half of the comedy duo Allen & Rossi. They played everywhere in the late…Read more
Hi Everyone There is always something going on over here at BUG:OUT:MUSIC to celebrate, and this month is no exception! The Manhattan Association of Cabaret & Clubs announced the 24th Annual MAC Award Nominations yesterday, and we were leaping for joy at the office when the text came in from our esteemed associate producer, Scott Barbarino of ScoBar Entertainment, that Terese has been nominated in the MAJOR ARTIST category this year! As most of you know, Terese is already the 2009 Outstanding Female…Read more
FROM TAMARA HAYES, VP; BOOKING & PROMOTION; BUG:OUT:MUSIC
Happy New Year, Everyone!
If you've received emails, newsletters, or postcards from the BUG:OUT:MUSIC camp lately, then you already know that Terese Genecco & Her Little Big Band have been extended indefinitely at The Iridium Jazz Club in New York City by co-producer SCOBAR ENTERTAINMENT! Audiences have been steadily growing in number since Terese first began her run of "Last Tuesdays" there back in March of 2009, so they're going to keep the show…
