AN EVENING WITH AMANDA MCBROOM & JOHN BUCCHINO

There are few singer-songwriters who have it all – brilliant lyrics, superb melodies and harmonies, mastery of genre-hopping diversity, killer performance chops, sophistication, humor, theatricality, and the ability to bring it all to the stage of an intimate venue. Luckily for us, two of them happen to be old pals (they’ve even done several co-writes) and on April 28th they’re coming out to play!

AMANDA MC BROOM'S name came to the attention of the public when Bette Midler's version of Amanda's song "THE ROSE" hit number one on the charts. Her songs have been recorded by Barbara Cook, Manhattan Transfer, Judy Collins, Barry Manilow, and many others. She received a Golden Globe, a Grammy nomination, and Johnny Mercer Songwriter of the Year Award and has performed in concert from London to Australia, Carnegie Hall to the Kennedy Center. Amanda has also written lyrics for 16 Universal Animation features, including the LAND BEFORE TIME series and was a featured lyricist for the TV classic series COP ROCK. She has written two musicals, HEARTBEATS, and A WOMAN OF WILL, and is lyricist for DANGEROUS BEAUTY, which had its world premiere at the Pasadena Playhouse in February of 2011.

JOHN BUCCHINO’S songs have been performed and recorded by renowned pop (Art Garfunkel, Judy Collins), theatre (Liza Minnelli, Patti LuPone, Kristin Chenoweth, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Audra McDonald), cabaret (Barbara Cook, Michael Feinstein), and classical (Yo-Yo Ma, Deborah Voight, Nathan Gunn), artists as well as The Boston Pops, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in venues including Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Opera, The Hollywood Bowl, The Kennedy Center, The Sydney Opera House, London’s O2 Arena and The White House.

Among his honors are two Drama Desk nominations, The Johnny Mercer Songwriter Award, The ASCAP Foundation Richard Rodgers New Horizons Award, The Jonathan Larson Award, The Kleban Award, The Los Angeles Ovation Award (for the revue IT’S ONLY LIFE), The DVD Premiere Award (for the song “Better Than I”), and the first annual Fred Ebb Award.

John has written music and lyrics for the Broadway musical A CATERED AFFAIR (nominated for 12 Drama Desk Awards, and winner of the New York Drama League Award for Best Musical, with a book by Harvey Fierstein), as well as the musicals URBAN MYTHS, LAVENDER GIRL, the new Danish musical ESAURA, the revue IT’S ONLY LIFE, and the Dreamworks animated film JOSEPH, KING OF DREAMS, and wrote the lyrics for the children’s musical SIMEON’S GIFT with a book by Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton, music by Ian Fraser.
