About Eddie Bruce

Singer and bandleader Eddie Bruce, whose singular celebrations of Tony Bennett, The Best of Broadway, and Frank Sinatra has played to sold out houses from Feinstein's to Atlantic City, stars in an electrifying, mesmerizing and unforgettable tribute to Anthony Newley, one of most distinctive and incomparable talents in show business. Newley was an actor, singer, composer and writer who had his first starring role in films at the age of 16, composed hit musicals and songs, topped the hit parade himself as a pop star, played everything from romantic leads to quirky character roles in movies, starred on both the West End and Broadway stages, and became a favorite of cabaret audiences from New York to Las Vegas.
