At the age of 92, TONY BENNETT is not slowing down. Tony’s latest album is a collaborative project with long-time friend and colleague Diana Krall titled, LOVE IS HERE TO STAY. Celebrating the musical legacy of the Gershwins, the album just debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Current and Traditional Jazz Charts. Also out now is a new book, TONY BENNETT: ON STAGE AND IN THE STUDIO, which provides an insightful look into Tony’s illustrious recording career highlighted by an extensive array of photographs, memorabilia, and artwork.

As a special offer, a CD or digital download of Love Is Here To Stay, is included with every ticket purchase.

No one in popular American music has recorded for so long and at such a high level of excellence than Tony Bennett. His previous album, “Tony Bennett Celebrates 90,” won a Grammy Award this past February for his son Dae Bennett who produced the album. Bennett also appeared on the 60th Anniversary Grammy Awards telecast and presented an award with John Legend, who sang with Tony on the 2006 “Tony Bennett: DUETS” recording. This past November, the Library Of Congress presented Bennett with The Gershwin Prize marking the first time that an interpretive singer has been honored. The event was broadcast on PBS Nationally this January and featured tribute performances by Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, Gloria Estefan and many others. His signature song, “I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” was inducted this year in the National Recordings Registry.

With worldwide record sales in the millions, and dozens of platinum and gold albums to his credit, TONY BENNETT is a musician who touches the hearts and souls of audiences with his legendary vocals and charming stage presence. His long list of achievements, spanning over 60 years, includes nineteen Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, a Kennedy Center Honoree, an NEA Jazz Master and a recipient of the United Nation’s Humanitarian and Citizen of the World honors. His signature tunes, such as “Steppin’ Out With My Baby” and “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” form part of the fabric of American music culture.

Tony Bennett’s daughter, Antonia Bennett has been touring with her father and will open the performance with a collection of jazz/pop standards. Antonia Bennett is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music.

Ah Via Musicom, Johnson’s third studio album, was certified platinum and introduced his signature hit, “Cliffs of Dover,” which won that year’s GRAMMY Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.

Guitar Player recently classified him as “one of the most respected guitarists on the planet.” On his most recent album, 2017’s Collage, Johnson combines five new, original songs with inventive covers of titles made famous by Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, B.B. King and more.

Sure, the majority of the 71 chart hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (including 40 in the Top 40, 19 in the Top 10 and eight No. 1s) came during the 1960s, but the music didn’t just disappear He has toured almost continuously since 1962, and his songs have been omnipresent in such movies as The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing and Mrs. Doubtfire.

Throughout his incredible career, Valli has sold well over 100 million records worldwide. One of the most distinctive voices in all of American music, his dazzling falsetto has become the stuff of rock’n’roll legend. For over five decades now, Valli and his group have been a top concert draw on stages coast-to-coast and around the world, thanks to the constant radio circulation of his songs as well as new re-mixes that find their way onto today’s charts.

“Frankie Valli's voice is a thing of wonder,” The Evening Standard wrote in a 2017 concert review. “… Every high note – and there are many – is hit with laser-guided precision. Oh, what a night, indeed!” Tickets to see Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are Tickets on sale Friday, November 17, 2017 at 10 AM at or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or by visiting the NJPAC Box Office.

Nashville, Tenn. – The wait is officially over as Black River Entertainment recording artist KELSEA BALLERINI’s much-anticipated sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, is available everywhere today.

“’UNAPOLOGETICALLY’ means leading with your heart, trusting it, following it and not letting other people’s opinions sway it,” Ballerini reveals. “From heartbreak to finding the love of my life and embracing the ‘in between’ – this album is all in order, just like it happened. Loss, life, love… this is my story, unapologetically.”

Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey – in addition to Shane McAnally, Lindsay Rimes, and Jimmy Robbins on select tracks – UNAPOLOGETICALLY spotlights 12 tunes written or co-written by Ballerini. Penned with “blood, sweat, and heartbeats,” the striking successor to her critically acclaimed, GOLD-certified THE FIRST TIME, exposes the intimate journey of loss, life, and love that the Country star has experienced since her history-making debut album.

"These are exciting days for Kelsea and Black River,” said Gordon Kerr, CEO of Black River Entertainment. “With the success of her first album; including three number one songs and a Top 3 single, we are extremely grateful to the outstanding radio promotion staff at Black River and all the people who came alongside Kelsea to make history with her first album. As we launch Kelsea's second album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, we look forward to continuing this journey alongside Kelsea and the wonderful people that day in and day out, tirelessly work to advance this great artist’s music."

Early reviews have critics applauding Ballerini’s fearless evolution as both an artist and songwriter alike:

“Her voice is winningly sweet, and also durably strong — it suggests a carefully withheld tenderness. And she is an elegant songwriter…”
