Andy Cowan & Nina Beck Duo at Renaissance Long Beach Hotel
Vocalist & hand percussionist ANDY COWAN is an award-winning writer/performer (Seinfeld, Cheers, 3rd Rock From the Sun) profiled in Who’s Who in America. He has won over audiences in jazz clubs and special events throughout Los Angeles (and radio and TV) for decades, beginning with his breakthrough performance of “Sinatra” singing pop and rock songs of the ‘80s, accompanied by Jack Sheldon, Plas Johnson and the rest of the Mort Lindsey Orchestra on The Merv Griffin Show.
NINA BECK began playing piano at age 5, and is a seasoned pianist, published songwriter, and performer around Los Angeles. She studied with renowned pianists John Lewis, Modern Jazz Quartet leader, and Paul Smith, and counts legendary vocalist Ernie Andrews among her many credits.
Nailing the sound and intelligence of Sinatra and Tony Bennett, more than a Frank Sinatra tribute group, they succeed by making the music their own. For swinging interpretations of the classic American Songbook and jazz standards, scatting, comedic parodies, tasty originals, and even a blues rendition of an Oscar-winning Dylan tune, audiences seek out this group and keep coming back for more.
