Broadway star Jarrod Spector's new show, A Little Help from My Friends, traces the legacy of the great male singers whose vocal prowess made them the rock stars of their generations, even before rock was born. Jarrod wraps his critically acclaimed voice around the songs that have made superstars out of more than a century of tenor legends, from pop icons Freddie Mercury and Michael Jackson to opera powerhouse Enrico Caruso. The show includes such classic songs as, When You Wish Upon a Star, Maybe I'm Amazed, Don't You Worry About A Thing, Faith, and Uptown Girl. The show was released on CD in 2014 through Broadway records. Spector starred as Frankie Valli in the hit Broadway musical Jersey Boys for five years and earned a Tony nomination in 2014 for his current role as Barry Mann in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. This concert is presented by the Buck Hill Skytop Music Festival.
