Expect a small venue, eat prior to attending and buy maybe one drink.

Quotes & Highlights

“[Aiello] has the bounce of his idols Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra and Louis Prima, and the throaty lyricism of another idol, Tony Bennett.” _-The New York Times _
“His voice warm and amiable, his phrasing easygoing and conversational, his singing revealed influences from his numerous idols - Bobby Darin in particular… but as with his acting, Aiello’s singing at its core was far more than an accumulation of influences. It was a pure manifestation, instead of his own rich persona, of the abundant life experience he brings to his art.” --Los Angeles Times

Description

An evening of great music and fun among friends as Danny Aiello takes the stage at the Iridium. Danny will be performing songs off his three previous albums, all from America’s favorite songbook, with his 8 piece jumpin’ jazz swing band. The night also features performances by Danny’s very special guests The Bronx Wanderers and a sneak preview of material from Danny’s upcoming album Bridges: a special collaboration with Danny and hip/hop artist Hassan.

The New York Times says Aiello “has the bounce of his idols Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra and Louis Prima, and the throaty lyricism of another idol, Tony Bennett” while Los Angeles Times adds; “His voice warm and amiable, his phrasing easygoing and conversational, his singing revealed influences from his numerous idols-Bobby Darin in particular…but as with his acting, Aiello’s singing at its core was far more than an accumulation of influences. It was a pure manifestation, instead of his own rich persona, of the abundant life experience he brings to his art.”
