Pianoman Victor Janusz added to an already-too-exciting Holiday Extravaganza
This just in: Join us for First Thursday in December and be serenaded by the dulcet and classy sounds of crooner Victor Janusz as you shop for locally made art and crafty utilitarian objects to give to your loved ones.
VICTOR JANUSZ is one of the Northwest’s most in-demand Entertainers. Last season at ACT, he penned and performed his own “HANDS SOLO: Pianoman” Show (directed by Lori Larsen) which was critically acclaimed and sold out an exclusive two-week run. Victor has just released a brand new CD “Living In A Blue State” with his full VJ BAND, including drummer STEVE WHITE (of Blue Man Group) Rob Witmer, Billy Joe Huels, Angie Louise, and Saxman Mark Taylor, among others. Victor is most at home… Anywhere!–So long as he’s playing or singing at a piano, preferring original tunes, jazz, classic rock and Carpenters’ songs. He’s performed many times at ACT, the Space Needle, Canlis, Nordstrom… even a Command performance for President-elect Obama. If he’s in a good mood, he’ll tell jokes, and if in a really, really good mood –may take requests!
His songlist includes the Sinatra Songbook, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Rogers & Hart, Broadway Classics, the Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Carpenters, Motown, REM, Lou Reed, Steely Dan, and lots of original tunes, as well.
And he’ll be playing on ’57 Biscayne’s very own piano, thank you ACT Theatre (and the two middle-aged people who moved it into the lobby this weekend).
