7PM JEFF MACAULEY: WHERE DID THE GENTLEMAN GO? THE SONGS OF BOBBY TROUP & THE LIFE OF SCOTTY BOWERS
“Where Did The Gentleman Go?” looks at the songs of Bobby Troup and the life of Scotty Bowers, two ex-marines who made new lives for themselves in Los Angeles just after World War II. They each took divergent but intersecting paths to find their fortunes and boy, did they find them. Bobby Troup became an esteemed composer, writing “Get Your Kicks On Route 66” among other post-war pop hits. Scotty Bowers got his kicks on Hollywood Blvd. working in a gas station and as a bartender and romancing just about every star in Hollywood. Jeff Macauley has been singing in clubs from Los Angeles to New York since 1990. Jeff recently won the 2019 MAC Award for Male Vocalist with his fourth consecutive nomination.

2PM DANIEL CAINER: GEFILTE FISH & CHIPS
Hillary Rollins presents Daniel Cainer’s “Gefilte Fish & Chips.” Direct from London, award-winning musical storyteller Daniel Cainer brings his internationally acclaimed one-man show. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cainer is an ‘Alien Artist of Extraordinary Ability’ (who knew?!). In this show, he shares up-close and personal tales about home, heritage, identity and what it’s like to be Jewish and British, then and now. But as the LA Times says, ‘You don’t have to be Jewish (or British) to get a kick out of Cainer’. All of the human condition is here, lovingly and intelligently depicted in a remarkable collection of stories-in-song about family, hope, life, love and, of course, bagels. Smart, funny, timely and only slightly irreverent, every song tells a story and every story touches the heart. Chosen for Soho Playhouse New York’s Best of Edinburgh and New York Fringe Encores series, “Gefilte Fish & Chips” is being prepared by producer Hillary Rollins for an off-Broadway production in 2020. But you can be an “early adopter” and see it right now at the Summer Melodies!
