NEW FOR 2017 SEASON!
2014 Tony Nominee (Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical for BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL) premiers a brand new show following his celebrated A Little Help From My Friends concert tour and CD. For six years he played Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. For three years he played Barry Mann in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. For countless hours he worked on preliminary productions of other jukebox and biographical shows no one has ever heard of.
These experiences, including 1500 Can't Take My Eyes Off of You and 900 We Gotta Get Outta This Place's, have led Jarrod Spector to be called Mr. Jukebox Musical (by his mother), but a fitting and eclectic soundtrack of his life began long before that title was bestowed.
Predating even his time crooning Bobby Darin hits («I Can't Give You Anything But Love», «Mack the Knife») en route to becoming Junior Champion on Ed McMahon’s Star Search at age six, music has framed and underscored the story of Jarrod’s often-humbling journey from his childhood home in Philadelphia («Jukebox Baby») to the bright lights «On Broadway». With a red hot seven-piece band and helped by unrivaled and often-embarrassing childhood archival footage, Jukebox Life traces Jarrod’s journey from Philly to Los Angeles to New York, through some terrible--and eventually less-terrible--auditions («One Song Glory»), to getting the role («Since I Don't Have You») and, best of all, to getting the girl («Shiksa Goddess»).
Jarrod Spector is such a strong draw at Guild Hall - whether he's performing solo or with friends, our audiences have been on their feet cheering and howling for his return. It's the sort of act where the audience seeks you out and corners you in the lobby after the show, demanding an encore. More than three years running in a row, and I'm signing him and Kelli up now for another summer. A pleasure to work with, terrific sales, exceedingly happy patrons - Spector's well worth your consideration.
