On Sunday, May 11, treat mom to an experience she will never forget: dinner and a show at Parx Casino’s® 360 Club with Philadelphia’s own Eddie Bruce. This will be the lauded entertainer's debut performance at Parx Casino®. He will be starring in “The Music & Magic of Tony Bennett” with The Tom Adams Trio.

The event will start at 4 p.m. and run roughly till 7 p.m. with a scrumptious dinner buffet followed by a captivating 75 minutes of pure enjoyment. The original production offers a mix of Tony Bennet’s most treasured songs interspersed with Eddie’s marvelous recounting of stories about Tony’s impact on his life.

“At age thirteen I sang a Tony Bennett song to audition for The Mike Douglas Show,” Eddie recalled. “And, I sang a Tony Bennett song when I actually appeared on national TV for the first time. There always seemed to be a Tony Bennett song in my life.”

“Tony showed me that this music could be sung with more of a jazz approach,” Bruce continued. “He also taught me about musical integrity — staying with good music, good songs, even when they weren't commercial.”

It is important to note that Eddie Bruce is one of the nation’s foremost interpreters of Bennett’s music. When Eddie’s recording, Bruce on Bennett, was released, Mark Fox, the president of the International Tony Bennett Appreciation Society said, “Everything . . . vocals, accompaniment, song choices . . . just right!”
