Ben Sharkey - Jazz @ The Point

  • Tipping Point Theatre 361 East Cady Street Northville, MI, 48167 United States

After nearly selling out all four Kittens & Crooners shows, we're excited to present our second live music series at the Tipping Point Theatre in downtown Northville -- Jazz @ The Point, presented by Financial Architects, Inc.

The third show will be Saturday, March 11 and features Ben Sharkey.

With performances that have been viewed more than five million times on YouTube alone, Ben Sharkey has been delighting fans worldwide with his romantic style and velvet vocals on old swing and jazz standards that would make old Blue Eyes himself green with envy. His original compositions bear his soul and tug at the listener's heart strings. Ben Sharkey's striking good looks and impassioned music makes him a creative tour de force. Although often compared to contemporaries like Michael Bublé, Ben is actually more closely comparable to Mel Torme and Harry Connick, Jr, with his intimate interpretations of jazz classics and ability to make them sound fresh and new. His elegant renditions of the music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bobby Darrin (along with many others) are both powerful and personal. His original music (available on iTunes) is heartfelt and instantly catching!

The event features a wine tasting and appetizers from 7-7:45 p.m. and a two-set (8-9 p.m. and 9:20-10 p.m.) concert. Doors open at 7 p.m. (Due to licensing/insurance costs and to keep ticket prices the same, alcohol will not be for sale this series.)

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased by phone (248-347-0003); online HERE; or at the theatre box office (361 E. Cady Street, Northville, 48167).

TPT season ticket holders save 10 percent per show.
