Steve D'Agostino performs in benefit concert
Trumbull Resident Steve D’Agostino and his quartet will be performing a benefit concert on Saturday, Oct. 27, at The Spaceland Ballroom, 295 Treadwell St., in Hamden, for The Wounded Warriors Organization. Doors open at 7 p.m.; concert at 8.
D’Agostino has been performing the songs from the “Great American Songbook” for more than 30 years. In addition to regular engagements at some of the finest restaurants and night clubs in Connecticut, his performing credits include appearances in Las Vegas at The Paris Casino Hotel, Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, , The Pequot Room at Foxwoods Casino in Ledyard, and the MGM Grand Theatre. He continues to honor and maintain the tradition of the Great American Songbook today by humbly interpreting the timeless music and lyrics of Cole Porter, Ira Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, Jimmy Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn.
Every time he stands in front of an audience, his interpretations of these Great American songs reminds his audience about the skill and importance of the “art and craft” of songwriting and public performance. His debut CD, “A Chapter from The Great American Songbook,” was recorded at Tony Bennett’s recording studio in Engelwood NJ and released in 2012.
