Bruce is a powerhouse vocalist, both as a fine Bennett interpreter (possibly the very best of them) and in his own right, and there was no doubt as to his deserved place on the POPS stage with the orchestra and Krajewski, even for those less familiar with his work but more familiar with the POPS.
Philly native Eddie Bruce wowed the audience with his Tony Bennett selections, especially his delivery of 'How Do You Keep The Music Playing.'
Eddie Bruce Triumphs in Nightclub Act Devoted to Tony Bennett!
A first-class vocalist with a voice that has the timbre of Bennett's, but with less gravel.
What a handsome, exciting singer! He's a real asset to this business. He's just magnetic and what a voice! He also has GREAT diction.
Like Tony Bennett himself, Eddie Bruce is charismatic and witty and engaging and you feel like all he wants to do in life is to make you, the audience happy. He did.
My very first impressions which for Eddie were: Dreamy Voice; Flecks of Tony but still Eddie; Manly, Elegant, Sexy, Sincere; SMOKIN' HOT band; jazzy but very much connected to his lyrics and finally, old school class act.
The show is a well-crafted show of great Tony tunes and anecdotes about Tony.
Eddie singing Tony's greatest hits as Eddie Bruce, a completely marvelous singer in his own right.
In my time I've been in on some outstanding musical events, and the tribute to Tony Bennett you put on, ranks with the best programs I've been fortunate enough to witness. You have honed your craft to the point of excellence!
