We’re less than 2 weeks away from the beginning of my 10th Anniversary Celebration Series at Feinstein’s at the Nikko, and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s been fun to revisit all the songs from A Little Travelin’ Music (and re-memorize them, LOL), and I’ve been struck by how this show foreshadowed the ones to come. There are songs made famous by Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin and Barry Manilow, all subjects of later shows, but songs that I don’t do in those later shows. I guess it’s clear where my influences have come from!

I do hope you’ll join me and the band for this first show in what will be a grand year of celebration – it all begins on April 1st (no foolin’).


From London to Chicago, Gershwin to Mercer, Paris to New York, and Mancini to Manilow, Russ Lorenson takes audiences on the musical journey of his life via the great standards of the 20th century. Russ makes the trip unique, fresh, and exciting as he tells the story of his odyssey from being a full-time stage performer to a high-tech executive with a million-mile travel schedule, and back again to the stage.
