STEVE LARKINS, TRIBUTE: MERCURY RISING

JOHN BRESSLER, MUSIC COMEDY
Audiences around the world simply love John Bressler. His unique blend of beautiful music and interactive comedy is one-of-kind. This multi-talented piano player and keyboardist known for his exuberant stage presence has been compared to Liberace, Victor Borge, and Elton John. And, his trademark voice is unforgettably soulful, rich and raspy like Rod Stewart or Louise Armstrong. John is truly a crown-pleasing and motivating performer.
