Internationally renowned New York cabaret pianist and singer Steve Ross received the Manhattan Association of Cabaret's Lifetime Achievement award in 2015, recognising a 40-year career performing the pop classics of the 1920s and 1930s. Dubbed the 'Crown Prince of Cabaret' by the New York Times, he returns to Australia in characteristically sophisticated style.

Steve presents a selection of songs from his favourite era, including classics by Fred Astaire, Cole Porter and Noel Coward.

Steve Ross rose to fame as a cabaret entertainer during his lengthy sojourns at New York's fabled Algonquin Hotel and Ted Hook's Backstage in the late 1970's. He has spent the ensuing decades singing and playing in smart clubs and swank parties all over the world, from The Ritz in London to the the Imperial Hotel Tokyo.

On the airwaves Steve has been the performer/host for radio series for both the BBC and National Public Radio. In 1992 he was voted outstanding singer-instrumentalist by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets. Also in that year Steve made his Off-Broadway debut in his own tribute to Fred Astaire, I Won't Dance.

He continues to tour in solo concerts, master classes, theatrical engagements and symphonic Pops appearances.

During the past decade, Steve has been presented by Barry Mishon and co-starred with Sheridan Morley and Patricia Hodge at London's Pizza on the Park in musical salutes to Noel Coward, Gertrude Lawrence, Jack Buchanan and other transatlantic legends.

Book now for a rare opportunity to spend an evening with the man the New York Times hailed as ""¦the suavest of all male cabaret performers."
