 WHERE: Brook Arts Center, 10 Hamilton St., Bound Brook

PBS-TV Singer Sensation Chris Ruggiero

Chris Ruggiero takes his audiences on a journey through the golden age of rock and roll, breathing new life into the timeless music of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. Chris has been described as an "old soul" at 22 years old, whose approach to his concert appearances is more in line with that of a bygone era than it is the artists of his generation. Chris first came to national attention when he performed on a nationwide PBS-TV special and has been touring the country with stops in Las Vegas, Cleveland, Wisconsin, Texas, Chicago, Florida, New Jersey, and, of course, New York.

His new album "I Am Chris Ruggiero" features original arrangements from legendary arranger Charlie Calello on timeless classics such as "Wouldn't it Be Nice," “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,” "My Cherie Amour," "The More I See You" and "This Magic Moment." "When I'm on stage singing a classic love song and I look out into the audience and see that twinkle in their eyes, I know they're thinking about a special time and place in their life - or maybe their first kiss!" Chris says. "As it turns out, people have definitely not had enough of silly love songs."
