Acclaimed NYC-based singer-songwriters Sean Altman and Jack Skuller pay tribute to a pair of their rock heroes, presenting The Everly Set: Sean Altman & Jack Skuller Approximate The Everly Brothers. Come sing along and dance to Bye Bye Love, Cathy’s Clown, Wake Up Little Susie, All I Have To Do Is Dream, When Will I Be Loved, Crying In The Rain, Til I Kiss You, Love Hurts, Bird Dog, Claudette, Let It Be Me, Devoted To You and many more Everly (and Everly-influenced) classics. Sean and Jack will be joined by Next Stage favorites, percussionist Michael Hunter and upright bassist Adam Bernstein.
Ex-Rockapella star Sean Altman is “tuneful and sharply witty” (LA Times) and “relentlessly clever” (Chicago Tribune), with “catchy melodies, clever arrangements and lyrics that yield satiric gems” (Washington Post), combining “the tunefulness of the Beatles and the spot-on wit of Tom Lehrer” (Boston Globe) with a “silky tenor voice that produced chills” (NY Times). Altman, widely regarded as “the Father of Modern A Capella”, co-founded and led Rockapella on the Emmy-winning PBS-TV series “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?”, for which he co-wrote the theme song. He currently sings a cappella with The GrooveBarbers and Doowopera, original pop songs on guitar as a solo artist and original comedy songs as JEWMONGOUS.
Jack Skuller is the 2014 recipient of the Holly Prize, an award made possible by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as a tribute to the legacy of Buddy Holly. He’s received press coverage in the NY Post, Examiner, Teen Vogue, J-14, and American Songwriter Magazine among many others. The Deli Magazine wrote, “Jack Skuller is a teen idol in the wrong era. Buddy Holly would be proud.” Skuller has performed his original music around the country with Radio Disney. He is a regular performer with the acclaimed Losers Lounge tribute series at Joe’s Pub in NY. His latest singles have been released on indie label Mint 400 Records.
