Last night, October 9, The Iriduim Jazz Club welcomed Nicholas King, winner of the 2010 Julie Wilson Award and the 2012 Bistro Award for Outstanding Performer. King voiced the character of “Oscar” in Discovery Kids’ “Kenny The Shark”, and has opened for his mentor Liza Minnelli across the US since 2006.

Nicolas King, dubbed “the precociously polished crooner” by the New York Times, has wowed audiences for six months at The Iridium NYC, as he jammed with Terese Genecco and her Little Big Band, as a featured guest vocalist, while simultaneously presenting critically-acclaimed solo performances at Don’t Tell Mama and Metropolitan Room. The star-studded audiences were filled with the likes of Liza Minnelli, Gina Lollobrigida, Marylin Maye and Andrea McArdle, to name-drop a few. As a long-time friend of Liza’s, Nicolas received her behind-the-scenes guidance and was asked by Liza to perform along with her for her upcoming engagements at Westbury Music Fair and at the new Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (formerly The Las Vegas Hilton). On Oct 9th at 8pm (ONE SHOW ONLY!), Nicolas King returns to The Iridium NYC, under the musical baton of legendary Mike Renzi and the Mike Renzi Trio. The show will deliver Broadway ballads, swinging favorites and, of course, selections from the Great American Songbook, that belie his tender age of 21, and is a not-to-be missed performance.
