Brook Arts Center presents Chris Ruggiero with "Silly Love Songs"

(BOUND BROOK, NJ) -- Brook Arts Center presents singer Chris Ruggiero on May 20, 2022 at 8:00 pm. Ruggiero takes his audiences on a journey through the golden age of rock and roll, breathing new life into the timeless music of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.

Chris has been described as an "old soul" at 22 years old, whose approach to his concert appearances is more in line with that of a bygone era than it is the artists of his generation. Chris first came to national attention when he performed on a nationwide PBS-TV special and has been touring the country with stops in Las Vegas, Cleveland, Wisconsin, Texas, Chicago, Florida, New Jersey, and, of course, New York.

His new album "I Am Chris Ruggiero" features original arrangements from legendary arranger Charlie Calello on timeless classics such as "Wouldn't It Be Nice," “Put Your Head on My Shoulder,” "My Cherie Amour," "The More I See You" and "This Magic Moment." Calello has had over 100 national records as an arranger and producer, having worked with Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, and Barry Manilow, to name a few. Upon completion, Calello commented, "It's been a long time since I heard a voice like this. Chris doesn't chase the music.

"When I'm on stage singing a classic love song and I look out into the audience and see that twinkle in their eyes, I know they're thinking about a special time and place in their life - or maybe their first kiss!" Chris says. "As it turns out, people have not had enough of silly love songs."  

Tickets $30-$45 in advance at www.brookarts.org or 732-469-7700. Box Office Day of performance $35-$50. All seats are reserved socially distanced. Concessions, Bar, and Free Parking are available. The Brook Arts Center is in Bound Brook, NJ, one block from the Bound Brook Train station and a few short miles from Rt 22, 287, and 78.
