ARTS GARAGE to Present LOVING AVERY: A Musical Salute to Avery Sommers - July 23
The Floridant/10232043

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Floridant -- (Delray Beach, FL – May 19, 2023) Marjorie Waldo, President & CEO of Arts Garage, today announced a very special upcoming concert: LOVING AVERY: A Musical Salute to Avery Sommers to be headlined by singers Rob Russell and Anthony Nunziata—along with special guests Copeland Davis, Patty Chamberlain, Tony Siders, and Meri Ziev, backed by Music Director Phil Hinton (piano) with Frank Derrick on drums and Val Shaffer on bass. Sponsored by Legends Radio 100.3 FM, this one-night-only, entertainment-packed benefit will be held on Sunday, July 23, at 7 pm.


In deep recovery mode since a serious fall last winter, Avery Sommers is a South Florida treasure with a "powerhouse" voice" (The New York Times) and a charismatic stage presence. She appeared on Broadway in Ain't Misbehavin' replacing Nell Carter, Chicago, Showboat, Broadway, and Platinum; and was in the first national tours of both The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (starring Ann-Margret) and Chicago, for which she won a Los Angles Ovation Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Widely recognized as "Mr. Palm Beach," Master Showman Rob Russell, is now hosting the popular monthly musical series Rob Russell's Open Mic at Café Centro in West Palm Beach. From his years as the polished front man at the distinguished Governor's Club at Phillips Point to his nearly two decades as producer and emcee of the world famous Royal Room Cabaret, to his recent years as a singer, recording artist (his popular CD Hello Again), and—after graduating top in his class at the Connecticut School of Broadcasting—Dick Robinson's fill-in tune-spinner on Legends Radio 100.3 FM, Rob Russell has amassed numerous fans of his audience-wowing musical talents and flashy show biz anecdotes.


Following his recent sold-out performance at Manhattan's Café Carlyle, Anthony Nunziata, who has been dubbed "America's new romantic singing sensation," returns to Arts Garage for this tribute to Avery Sommers. Hailed by BroadwayWorld for capturing "the authentic songwriting passion of a young Billy Joel with the soulfulness of Ed Sheeran," Nunziata has been described as "an explosion of love and entertainment" with his signature take on classic love songs from Broadway, jazz, classic pop, Italian arias, and originals from his critically acclaimed, award-winning jazz/pop release, The Love Album.
