Barb Jungr & John McDaniel: 1968

  • October 25, 2018
    8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This is 1968.

Singer, performer and recording artist Barb Jungr is ”mesmerising”
(New York Times), ”casually virtuosic” (Guardian), an ”alchemist among
jazz singers” (Telegraph), possessing a voice which is “shockingly
expressive, with an astonishing palette of colours” (Observer). Across
her 40 year career she has been internationally acclaimed for
combining immaculate vocal technique, impassioned performance,
piercing insight and beautifully unexpected musical arrangements to
reinterpret European and American popular songs in a manner which The
New York Timesdescribed as ”revelatory”. As a live performer, Barb
Jungr is always funny, and often hilarious. Like, intentionally.
Cabaret Scenes described a performance in November 2016 as “the
funniest hour of cabaret I’ve ever seen” from a “world-class

Over the past couple of years she has combined her solo work with
performances as one half of a double act, for the first time since her
legendary collaboration with Michael Parker in the 1980s. Teaming up
with the genius pianist and music director John McDaniel, they have
worked together to create an increasing number of very special shows.

When paired with Barb, John is a pianist, singer, arranger and partner
in banter. He doesn’t even need to bother employing his vast
experience as a conductor, a composer and a Tony, Grammy and Emmy
Award-winning producer of theatre, albums and television. After a
childhood spent putting on shows in the basement of his home in St.
Louis, Missouri, his only option was to metamorphose into Mr.
Showbusiness. And so it came to pass that he has worked on Broadway as
a conductor, musical director, and musical / vocal arranger. He has
accompanied stars including Betty Buckley, Tyne Daly, Brooke Shields
and Patti LuPone, whose 1995 one-woman show he arranged and conducted.
He also spent seven years in living rooms across America as the
Musical Director and bandleader on The Rosie O’Donnell Show.
