Ken Hirsch’s “HITS FROM ANOTHER CENTURY TOUR”

Award-winning songwriter Ken Hirsch  -- co-creator of such hits asI've Never Been to Me, Two Less Lonely People In The World, No One In The World, There Is Always One More Time and If I Could  – brings his songs, stories and extraordinary talent to the Catalina for ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Kenny has written with Hal David, Howard Greenfield, Doc Pomus, Gerry Goffin, Carole Bayer Sager, Paul Williams, Phil Cody, Wayland Holyfield, Allan Rich, Marti Sharron, Bruce Burch and Robin Lerner and his songs have been recorded by (amongst others) Celine Dion, Anita Baker, Ray Charles, Charlene, Stevie Wonder, Barbra Streisand, Air Supply, Regina Belle, Dolly Parton, Millie Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight, Latoya London, Phyllis Hyman, Michael Bolton, Plácido Domingo, B. B. King, Johnny Adams, Genya Ravan, Dionne Warwick, Nancy Wilson, Teddy Pendergrass, and José Feliciano.  In addition, he is the composer of three full-length musicals: Daddy Goodness, Clothespins and Dreams (with Ron Miller) and An Officer and a Gentleman, The Musical (with Robin Lerner).

Ken will perform with a full band (Stephan Oberhoff keyboards and guitar; David Henning, bass; Josh Herbst, drums) and will be joined on stage by a sensational line-up of artists, including: Freda Payne, David Morgan, Kimaya Sherkhan, Catte Adams, Jules Galli, Mackenzie Wrap, Rena Strober and Rosie Casey.

This exciting yet intimate evening is a retrospective and celebration of a career as one of the pop world’s most prolific writers whose tunes are a familiar and beloved part of the soundtrack of our lives. It also happens to be Kenny and his wife Barbara’s birthday!
