The multi-award-winning, multi-talented vocalist, bandleader, and comedian Terese Genecco (pronounced Teh-REECE Jeh-NECK-oh) is currently the longest-running nightclub act on Broadway, appearing here
as a headliner at The Iridium on the last Tuesday of every month for more than 90 performances since her opening night in March of 2009. Her newest live CD was recorded at The Iridium and released on March 20, 2012 and can be found at www.CDBABY.com, Apple’s iTunes, Amazon.com and other music retailers.
Genecco has appeared in major music venues, performing arts centers and jazz festivals around the world since her cabaret debut in 2003 when she became San Francisco’s Entertainer of the Year. After garnering a Back Stage Bistro Award, 2 MAC Awards (from The Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs,) and being named one of the Top Ten Best Cabaret shows of the year by Time Out New York Magazine in 2006 and again in 2007, Genecco wrapped up a year-long run at San Francisco’s premiere nightclub, The Rrazz Room, in 2008 and relocated to New York City where she has continued to earn critical acclaim, another Bistro Award, two more MAC Awards (for Major Artist & SHOW OF THE YEAR) and a rabid fan following in her open-ended run of shows at The Iridium with her stellar 8-piece Little Big Band.
There were no mice in the Ratpack it was strictly an all-boy’s club. But if Frank, Dean and Sammy ever returned from the
Great Casino in the Sky, the first youngish female singer that I’d recommend to join their clan is this high-voltage entertainer. Ms.Genecco is deeply rooted in the early 1960s, the colorful last gasp of the era of swingin lovers, and, as such, draws equally from Louis Prima and Sammy Davis on one hand and Ray Charles and Elvis on the other.
She and her three horns and five rhythm put on an unstoppable juggernaut of a set at the Iridium, with one hard-hitting swinger after another, pausing only for what she describes as a mandatory two-ballad maximum. The calendar may say Dec.28, but Ms. Genecco makes every show seem like New Year?s Eve.
