EDDIE BRIGATI: AFTER THE RASCALS
EDDIE BRIGATI: AFTER THE RASCALS
EDDIE BRIGATI: AFTER THE RASCALS is a unique, intimate, cabaret styled show which shines the spotlight directly on the charismatic Brigati. In addition to performing classic Rascals hits (which he co-wrote), Brigati delivers his renditions of songs from the Great American Songbook, Broadway, the Brill Building era and more backed by a 5-piece band, as well as sharing stories from his more than 50-year career.

A member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, Eddie Brigati’s professional singing career began at the age of 15 when his brother David invited him to sing backing vocals on the top twenty hit “What Kind of Love is This?” for Joey Dee and the Starliters (of “Peppermint Twist” fame).

Four years later, he would help form the legendary Blue-Eyed Soul group The Rascals (formerly The Young Rascals). The Rascals began in Garfield, New Jersey in 1965. Between 1966 and 1968 the New Jersey band reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 with nine singles, including three #1s "Good Lovin’" (1966), "Groovin'" (1967), and "People Got to Be Free" (1968), as well as big radio hits "How Can I Be Sure?" (#4 1967), "A Beautiful Morning" (#3 1968), and more. After a meteoric rise, the band would break up in 1970.

In 2012, life-long Rascals fan Steven Van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band/The Sopranos) would reunite the band for The Rascals: Once Upon A Dream. This critically-acclaimed theatrical concert event (written, directed and produced by the Van Zandts) toured internationally including a run on Broadway and a performance at the 2013 Tony Awards on CBS-TV.

“Eddie Brigati: After the Rascals is a treat…a rock ‘n’ roll legend up close. He certainly belongs on the Mount Rushmore of great 60s vocalists along with Frankie Valli, Dionne Warwick and Connie Francis.” – Asbury Park Press

“Brigati takes each song and paints a musical picture…he shines as he smoothly eases into singing hits from Broadway shows such as Pippin, Evita, Jekyll & Hyde and more.”
-Times Square Chronicles

“Brigati’s voice sounds wonderful…pitch-perfect, clear and resonant and with precise phrasing and diction…he sings with tons and tons of heart…stopping time in its tracks.”
