November 29th, 2011

Erich Bergen at The Coterie


Erich Bergen, best known from the cast of Jersey Boys and television’s Gossip Girl, rings in the season with A Holiday Party, a swinging, upbeat kick-off to the end of the year festivities, at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel, on Monday, December 5 at 8pm. Featuring music direction by American Idol’s Michael Orland, A Holiday Party will include many holiday favorites, new tunes, and plenty of joy and laughter. This one night only event will also include a special guest appearance by Lindsay Pearce, from the cast of Glee. Erich Bergen’s Holiday Party is a benefit for Toys for Tots. Patrons who bring a new, unwrapped toy to The Coterie on December 5 will gain admission to the showroom with no cover charge.

From November 27 through December 18, Bergen will be appearing as The Prince in A Snow White Christmas opposite Lindsay Pearce, at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood. This production will be an updated version of the classic tale, presented in the style of the traditional British family Panto, a modern musical play based on fairytale stories. A panto is known for bringing together families with its interactive style and humor that appeals to fairytale fans of all ages.

Erich Bergen starred as Bob Gaudio in the Tony and Grammy Award-winning Jersey Boys, as part of the Los Angeles, San Francisco, First National Tour and Las Vegas companies. Other recent credits include an appearance on ABC’s Desperate Housewives, and onstage in The Temperamentals at The Blank Theatre in Hollywood. In the Las Vegas Weekly, Steve Freiss said, “Bergen has a youthful and affable presence, an ability to play with audience expectations, a willingness to take risks, and a confidence that does not come across as arrogance.” And, of Bergen’s concert appearance at LA’s Magic Castle in September, 2010, Don Grigware at enthused, “Taking the stage with the gusto akin to a tornado or blazing brushfire, this young dynamo captivated the packed house from the moment he opened his mouth.”

Bergen’s debut CD, titled The Vegas Sessions, released in the fall of 2010, features new studio recordings of original compositions in the pop genre, along with live tracks recorded during three sold out concerts in Las Vegas in April, 2009. The disc is available at iTunes,, CD Baby, and other digital music outlets.
