Composer Drew Gasparini returns to Feinstein’s/54 Below on Sept 9 for his annual back-to-school party to celebrate the re-release of his beloved album, I Could Use A Drink.
Released in 2013 by Broadway Records and produced by Charlie Rosen, I COULD USE A DRINK introduced many Gasparini standards and best-sellers, including “If I Had You,” “Valley High,” and “A Little Bit.” This concert will be a rare opportunity to hear the original vocalists from the album perform these songs again, live!
Join us for an evening of nostalgia and greatest hits, coupled with classic Gasparini bacchanalia.
