Expect something both fresh and nostalgic when you attend Tormé Sings Tormé on July 20th one of the premier shows presented by the Great Waters Music Festival at the Kingswood Arts Center in Wolfeboro. Nationally recognized singer songwriter Steve March -Tormé will croon a tribute to the life and music of his famous father Mel Tormé. He will be accompanied by the ten -member Clayton Poole Orchestra compromised of professional musicians from across the country. Together, under the direction of Poole, they will entertain you with a variety of jazz and big band renditions.
Steve March-Tormé spent much of his childhood listening to Top 40 music stations and found himself singing along with such artists as The Four Seasons, Nat King Cole, The Temptations, Ricky Nelson, Gene Pitney, and The Beatles. This accidental discovery for music led to March-Tormé fronting his first band in 1966. In the late 1970s, March-Tormé recorded his first LP, “Lucky”, for United Artists Records, supporting it with a well received 20 city, national concert tour. The album featured several noted musicians including Arthur Adams, Wilton Felder and Wayne Henderson of the Jazz Crusaders, Fred Tackett and Paul Barrere of Little Feat, Jimmy Gordon from Derek and the Dominos, the L.A. Express’s Max Bennett, Chuck Findley, Victor Feldman, Plas Johnson, and Pete Christlieb . Upon returning to California, he produced and sang on Liza Minnelli’s Columbia Records release “Tropical Nights” which became a favorite of New York dance clubs.
March-Tormé currently tours worldwide as a singer/entertainer. He has performed in 46 of the 50 states, in addition to concerts in Australia, Canada, Japan, Brazil, London and Italy.
