Susan Mack returns to Birdland Theater, after recent sold-out performances, on June 1st @ 8:30 pm with her newest show, “Yesterdays,” showing off her diverse and uplifting spin of jazz standards and songs from the American Songbook. The songs of yesterday may have been written in the “olden days,” but their messages and the emotions they elicit are still powerful, relatable and relevant today. Hear iconic compositions of Duke Ellington, Jerome Kern, Chick Corea, The Beatles and a heartwarming tribute to Ella Fitzgerald.
A native New Yorker, Ms. Mack has always been filled with a lifelong passion for music. The unique combination of Susan’s jazz and cabaret singing, coupled with her charm, wit, and skill, has earned her numerous accolades, including a nomination for Best Female Vocalist for the 2022 Annual MAC Awards. Her debut show in 2018, “Nobody Else But Me”, directed by the legendary Marilyn Maye, was also nominated for a MAC Award for Best Female Debut.
Her talents have taken her to some of the most iconic venues in New York including Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall as well as venues around the country such as Davenport’s in Chicago and The Jazz Cave in Nashville, garnering rave reviews.
Featuring Musical Director Tedd Firth on piano, David Finck on bass, Eric Halvorson on drums, and special guest Danny Bacher on saxophone, with direction by Lina Koutrakos, the evening promises to fill a music lover’s ears with joy. Photo: Bill Westmoreland
