In celebration of his first solo CD release, former Jersey Boys star Erich Bergen will debut his new club act in Los Angeles at The Magic Castle in Los Angeles on September 15, and at the Rrazz Room at the Hotel Nikko in San Francisco on September 24.

Erich Bergen recently completed a three-year run starring 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 Gossip Girl (CW Network), White Christmas (Pantages Theatre), and A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum (Reprise). In 2009, he co-produced, directed, and served as musical director for Las Vegas Celebrates the Music of Michael Jackson, a benefit concert which raised $118,000 for Music Education in Nevada public schools.

“Erich Bergen, as Bob Gaudio, is the show’s breakout star. With his lanky good looks and vibrant intensity, his charisma feeds off the spotlight,” said Charles McNulty in his Los Angeles Times review of Jersey Boys. Said Steve Freiss in Las Vegas Weekly, “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, Bonnie Priever at said, “Erich Bergen is a star on stage … a fresh, promising, musical talent.”

Bergen’s CD, titled The Vegas Sessions, will feature new studio recordings of original compositions in the pop genre, along with live tracks recorded during three sold out Las Vegas appearances at the Liberace Museum in April, 2009. The disc will be available for purchase at the upcoming Los Angeles and San Francisco club dates, and available October 1 at, CD Baby, iTunes and other digital music outlets.
