Graham Fenton (star of Jersey Boys) & Dave Damiani (Sinatra 100, CBS Vegas) debut a new show ‘The Real La La Land.’
THE REAL LA LA LAND is a musical revue from the perspective from former jazz club bartender and singing waiter Dave Damiani. Dave and Graham met over 10 years ago at the famed Miceli's Restaurant in Hollywood as singing waiters pursuing their dream. Like Ryan Gosling's character in the film, Dave Damiani and his group of young talented jazz musicians are in pursuit of bringing back the class, style and swagger of places like the 500 Club, The Copacabana, Copa Lounge and The Cocoanut Grove.
With stories of actual successes and failures working for such musicians as Michael Buble', Justin Timberlake, The Jersey Boys, Steve Tyrell and many more... This show will warm your heart with the true experience of being a working musician and singer in the jazz community in Los Angeles. We will feature Bijon Watson (trumpet player from the film LA LA Land), Alex Frank (from the film Jersey Boys), and impresario singer and producer Dave Damiani (responsible for bringing the 500 Club back to Atlantic City).
This young big band has performed all over the world and will tell their tales of being a "working" musician or a "sideman" for other artists in their pursuit of success.
They will perform songs from great artists such as Frank Sinatra, Frankie Valli, Dean Martin, Nat "King" Cole, Johnny Mercer, The Beatles and many more!
