A young, personable guy from West Virginia who washed cars for a living decided to try out for America’s Got Talent. He sang Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin tunes and just stunned the judges. That year, 2011, that guy—Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr.—won the competition, got to headline his own Las Vegas show, and he continues to tour. His debut album “That’s Life” hit #1 on the Billboard Jazz chart. With a horn section in tow, come hear Landau as he salutes Sinatra, moves to Motown and performs a whole range of memorable songs from the Great American Songbook.
