David Bryan in Manhattan TONIGHT

I'm doing what?

On Monday, May 4 at 9:30pm, Composer, Lyricist and Keyboard player David Bryan will make a special appearance at Joe's Pub in Manhattan as part of Upright Cabaret's "Upright Cabaret Takes Manhattan" final concert.

Mr. Bryan, best known as the original keyboard player and songwriter for the mega-band Bon Jovi, will accompany singers Montego Glover (The Color Purple, Memphis) and Chad Kimball (Lennon, Into the Woods, Good Vibrations) as they showcase some of the songs from the new musical "Memphis", which is slated to debut on Broadway in Fall 2009.

David is a Grammy Award winning keyboard player, songwriter and founding member of Bon Jovi. Over the past 25 years the band has sold 130 million records and toured the world playing to millions of people in over 50 countries. Their Lost Highway Tour in 2008 was the number 1 grossing tour in the world. His musical Memphis (co-written with Joe DiPietro) has been seen at North Shore Music Theatre, TheatreWorks in Palo Alto and most recently at La Jolla Playhouse and the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle. David and Joe DiPietro have co-written Toxic Avenger the Musical which opened at New World Stages April 6th. Among his work for other charities, David has dedicated his time to being a national spokesperson for VH1's Save the Music Program.

Upright Cabaret is the wildly popular Los Angeles based theatrical production which features an eclectic mix of artists from stage, screen and recording. This weekend producers Chris Isaacson and Shane Scheel along with Music Director Chris Bratten and Artistic Director Billy Porter returned to Joe's Pub in Manhattan to present a trio of shows entitled "Upright Cabaret takes Manhattan" featuring some of the best talent working in New York City including Tracie Thoms (Rent, CBS's Cold Case, Devil Wears Prada, Grindhouse), Brooks Ashmanskas (The Producers, Gypsy), Capathia Jenkins (Caroline or Change), Adam Kantor (Rent), Audra Mae, Daniel Reichard (Jersey Boys, Radiant Baby), Shayna Steele (Rent, Hairspray) and many more!
