Bobby RydellIn the 1950’s, Bobby Rydell captured the world's attention and the hearts of every teeny bopper. One of the premier teen idols of the day, Bobby soon set himself apart in the early days of rock as more than just a pretty face. He was an accomplished musician and singer long before his first appearance on American Bandstand, where the world first saw that famous pompadour & warm smile. Billboard lists Bobby Rydell as earning 34 Top 40 hits, making him one of the Top 5 artists of his era. His hit songs include “Kissin Time”, “Wild One”, “Volare”, “Forget Him”, “Sway”, “Little Bitty Girl” and many more.
He continues to perform in a wildly successful act "The Golden Boys" which co-stars his old friends Frankie Avalon & Fabian. It's a warm, funny, music-filled journey back in time (complete with videos) that hasn't disappointed audiences for the past 20 years they've been performing this show!
Bobby's solo act is very special ~ with family stories, comedy, & soulful music. He has an excellent command of phrasing that is apparent in songs like "When I Take My Sugar to Tea," " and "Cry Me a River." He possesses a formidable range of vocalization that is the purist entertainment you'll see. He does a tribute to fellow teen idol, Bobby Darin, with "Dream Lover," "Splish Splash" & "Mack the Knife." His mega-hit, VOLARE, is regularly a show stopper. There's even a medley of songs from his classic motion picture, "Bye Bye Birdie." Bobby serves up a mix of pure musical relaxation that is simply wonderful.
