Oleg Frish, who is known as a Human Jukebox and who is revered for his affable and quirky personality as a singer/performer and popular talk show host, is returning for an encore performance at the legendary Iridium. Oleg is a connoisseur of swing, jazz and the Great American Songbook —and he sings in several languages. Oleg will deliver many of the fun and classic songs that were featured on his recent dream-come-true album, “Duets With My American Idols” (Connie Francis, Ben E.King, Bobby Rydell, Melissa Manchester, Tony Orlando, Lainie Kazan, B.J.Thomas, Gary U.S.Bonds, Peggy March, Chris Montez and Lou Christie). He brings to the stage his deep appreciation and love for classics, culled from the American and International Songbooks, swing and jazz, played by a world-class jazz septet. Oleg performs with charm and “… an enthusiasm and affection for material that should never be forgotten,” as cited in a review of one of his recent performances.
