• reutherRick Reuther’s show Rags to Riches is a loving tribute to the music and life of singer Tony Bennett. As performed by vocalist Reuther with pianist/arranger Tom Hagen heading the band, the show highlights Bennett’s iconic performances from his earliest days through today, as the 90 year old singer is still bringing audiences to their feet. The set list includes many of his classics like Rags to Riches, Because of You, The Shadow of Your Smile and the enduring I Left My Heart in San Francisco. It also includes some of the lesser known musical gems that Bennett had such a knack for discovering and making his own.

    The show is backed by a talent packed ensemble including Tom Hagen on keys, Bassist Elgin Vines, Drummer/Vocalist Cherie Lynn, sax man Mike Lutley and percussionist Kevin Jones. With swinging moments and those that will move you to tears, this show is a wonderful tribute to the guy Frank Sinatra once said has “the best pipes in town”.
