    New Year, New Opportunities

    • February 16, 2017 • Comments (0)

    2017 finds The Midtown Men in the middle of their 7th (SEVEN!!) year touring together. It also brought a change, albeit temporary, to the group, as Michael is on a leave of absence for a few months. We have always known that these four guys are first-rate performing artists, and it’s been so fun to see how, over the years, they have each been able to pursue their own creative outlets.

    The View Upstairs, opening February 28, 2017

    So what is Michael up to? Last night, the NYC theater community was privileged to see Michael begin previews in a new Off-Broadway show, called The View Upstairs. The show opens on February 28, and if you’re in the area, you will NOT want to miss this! Michael shows off his singing, dancing, and acting chops in a fun role that he helped create. The View Upstairs was inspired by one of the most significant yet all-but-ignored attacks against the LGBTQ community. It examines what has been gained and lost in the fight for equality, and how the past can help guide all of us through an uncertain future. Words that have been used to describe the show already include “beautiful,” “powerful,” “vibrant,” and “important.”

     

    Check it out if you’re going to be in the NYC area this spring!!

    Tickets at www.theviewupstairs.com.

     

    For those of you concerned about what this means for TMM, rest assured! During Michael’s leave of absence, Travis Cloer, of Las Vegas (and Broadway) Jersey Boys fame is joining Christian, Daniel and Bobby on tour coming soon to a city near you!

    The Midtown Men in Midtown Manhattan

    • January 12, 2017 • Comments (1)

    Considering the amazing night with The Midtown Men at BB King’s last May and the upcoming closing of Jersey Boys after 11+ years on Broadway, the January 8th concert at BB King’s had all the makings of a very special evening. I think those in attendance would agree – it did not disappoint!

    The audience arrived early to dine and chat with friends before the show. All over the room, there were greetings and hugs as friends were reunited in their mutual love for this group.

     

     

     

    Sandy Hicks with Stevie and Maureen VanZandt

    Some very special friends of TMM were in the room as well, including long-time friends and supporters Stevie and Maureen VanZandt, Jay Siegel (the Tokens), and Gene Cornish (the Rascals).

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Daniel, Michael, Christian, and Bobby with some of their Jersey Boys family

    Also introduced from the stage were members of the Jersey Boys family, both past and present. Original Cast members Peter Gregus (Bob Crewe), Sara Schmidt (“My Boyfriend’s Back), alumni Russell Fischer and Travis Cloer (Broadway, Vegas Frankie), as well as current and final cast member Chris Messina cheered and danced their way through the show.

     

     

     

     

     

    Christian, Michael, Daniel, and Bobby fed off the energy from the audience, and appeared to be having as much fun as all of us. It was a truly special night in midtown, and the best way to start the new year. Were you there? Send us your pictures (Tmmclub@comcast.net) and we’ll post them!

    Breaking the Shakespeare Code

    • October 12, 2016 • Comments (0)

    As if Bobby wasn’t busy enough touring with the Midtown Men, he is always keeping busy with other theater projects. Longtime Jersey Boys and TMM friend Pam Singer was in the audience when Bobby took the stage in New York City this past weekend. She was kind enough to share her thoughts about the experience:

    Bobby with his leading lady Erikka Walsh

    “Lest anyone think Bobby Spencer is simply the fantastic singer, dancer and Midtown Man one sees on stage, think again. Bobby is an amazing actor whose voice, expression, demeanor and body language truly make a character come alive. Case in point: ‘Breaking The Shakespeare Code’, a 2 person character study that Bobby and Erikka Walsh brought to life in an intimate reading this week. Those of us fortunate enough to be there witnessed a thrilling 80 minutes of cascading emotions and crackling chemistry. There’s a reason this man is a Tony nominated Broadway actor! He’s got talent to burn. A lovely reception followed the reading, and as always, it was great to chat with Bobby. Look forward to seeing him and the other Men again soon.”

    Doreen and Frank Capasso were also in the audience and added these thoughts: “The play itself was brilliantly written; it leaps through time without leaving anything out. Bobby really puts his heart and soul into everything he does; we all see it when he performs with the Midtown Men but the outside projects he chooses really showcase a different side of his talent. His acting was out of this world!”

     

    Congratulations Bobby! We can’t wait to see what you do next!

    On the road again…

    • October 10, 2016 • Comments (0)

    It’s October, and fall is in full swing! The guys have entered their seventh year touring with the Midtown Men, much to the delight of their audiences. The season is off to a great start, with concerts across the Mid-Atlantic (Maryland and Virginia) and the Midwest (South Dakota) before landing in the NY/NJ area for a pair of concerts last weekend.

     

     

     

     

     

    In Maryland, they played Frostburg and Frederick for the first time before headlining one of Northern Virginia’s bright jewel arts events, ARTS by George! at George Mason University. From the review in DC Metro Theater Arts: “The Midtown Men concert was a sunny upbeat delight. This was no mere, “call-it-in” oldies-but-goodies event with four guys who could mimic across many a musical genre beyond The Four Seasons. There was a smooth ease about the evening. It was a concert with legendary ‘60’s music well-delivered by very highly skilled, authentic, entertainers, who danced up a storm on stage while truly seeming to not only enjoy what they were doing, but lit up the crowd with their winning personalities. And they were accompanied by a smokin’ 7-member rock band…Their concert was wall-to-wall of appealing, tight musical and spot-on choreographed harmony propelled by a seven-piece band, bursting-forth with horn-and sometimes flute dominated arrangements – and all filled with charming personal chemistry and the non-stop energy of the performers…It was an out-of-sight, full-tilt winning evening with The Midtown Men that benefited emerging arts stars of the future.

    Soundcheck in New Jersey

     

    This past weekend was an exciting one as TMM played for “hometown” crowds in New Jersey and New York. Both audiences were filled with fans and friends who have been supporting the guys since they were onstage together in Jersey Boys. Perhaps most exciting, they debuted some fabulous new songs, including an awesome Jersey Boys medley, and a new solo for Bobby (Steppin’ Stone by the Monkees). As always, the harmonies are tight, the choreography is smooth, and the songs just lift you up. Can’t wait to see if any other new songs are revealed through the season!

     

    Next up: Heinz Hall with the Pittsburgh Symphony, in Pittsburgh, PA, October 28, 29, and 30, and some West Coast shows in November! Check out their full schedule here!

     

    Thanks for reading, and hope to see you at a show soon!
