How does a song become a standard? Well, one way is for vocalist Frank Shiner to discover an unknown tune and perform it with such maturity, truth and invention that it enters the collective memory forever. Nobody is better than Shiner at unearthing the hidden gems of today’s top songwriters … and in the process expanding the definition of “standard” to include everything from Elvis Costello’s “Almost Blue” to Tom Waits’ “Temptation.” Now, the accomplished vocalist makes his third appearance at 54 Below. Hear the “new classics” off his acclaimed debut album, The Real Me, which spawned two consecutive Top 5 adult contemporary hits. Stories will mesh seamlessly with songs, as an all-star band backs up every note and flourish. Equal parts entertainment and inspiration, Shiner’s The Real Me Live Show includes surprise homages to 54 Below and Broadway itself.
