Twin Cities vocalists Jennifer Eckes and Arne Fogel will tunefully wend their way through the 1960s songbook that was a golden age for Broadway, Hollywood, and pop music. This was a decade of big hits for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Barbra Streisand, and you’ll hear classic songs like “People”, “Moon River”, “Summer Wind”, “Everybody Loves Somebody”, and many more!

“…I can’t think of anyone else around here who does what Fogel does…… There’s a dearth of male jazz vocalists in general, and none in this area who has mastered Fogel’s unique style of pop/swing. It’s accessible, danceable, romantic and fun….”
- Pamela Espeland, MinnPost
“…one of the Twin Cities’ most interesting people — A singer, musician, actor, composer, writer, producer, music-film-comedy and entertainment historian, collector and oral encyclopedia.”
- Bob Protzman, St. Paul Pioneer Press-Dispatch
