Fans of this year's American Idol lot will remember Bobby Bennett from the Top 24. "Copacabana" and all that. Whether you liked him or not, he's a really cool guy, and he just recently tipped me off that he's doing his very first concert. He's excited about it, and I'm happy for him.

So, those of you around the Denver Colorado area please go and show your love for Bobby as he performs.

The name of the show is "Bobby Sings Barry and Broadway," and it goes down on September 24, 2006 at 7PM at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret. Tickets are $10 online and $12 at the door and may be ordered at www.lannies.com or by calling (303) 293-0075, and reservations are recommended as tickets tend to go fast and shows sell out quickly.

For a quick summation of what you'll see, I refer you to the blurb from Lannie's website:
Bobby Bennett makes his cabaret debut appearance at Lannie's!

His name and face are familiar to you if you happened to be one of the millions of fans of American Idol. Bobby was one of the last 12 males standing in the 2006 season, a remarkable feat considering the hundreds of thousands of hopefuls who tried out for the coveted top spots.

Bobby made his impression on American Idol judges... they called him "the showman of the season!"

Tonight he'll take us on a journey through his own musical favorites, all the way from his idol, Barry Manilow, to his favorite Broadway melodies.

Bobby is a showman and passionate about his music. He's got the charm, the chops and as Simon Cowell said, "He's got the likability factor!!"

Paula Abdul said, "You are so passionate in anything you do...you could sing "Old Macdonald" and I'd buy into it" and tough critic Randy Jackson said, "Dawg, if you keep doing what you're doing...people are gonna know who you are."

Barry Manilow himself told Bobby, "Don't give up. You've got a long career ahead of you."

Doors open at 6, show starts at 7pm. I'm not going to be able to make it to Denver to see the show, but if you're in the area, are able to go, and would like to write a review, send it to me, and you may be the next guest writer here on Musical Ramblings.
