Eddie Bruce

Eddie Bruce is a natural performer – he always has been! Whether he’s singing from the concert stage with The Philly POPS or performing for hundreds of guests at an event, he instinctively knows how to engage his audiences. It’s why he’s such a stand out. Michael Feinstein said about Eddie after a performance in his New York supper club, “Eddie Bruce has a wonderful voice. And, his stage presence and tone are just as good.”

Eddie is proud to have sung with The Philly POPS in Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center at the launch of the new Philly POPS, under the direction of Maestro Michael Krajewski. He also performed for sold-out, standing ovation crowds at the Ocean City POPS and for the Hershey Symphony. A frequently requested performer from coast to coast, he presented Eddie Bruce & Friends at Sugar House Casino for two and a half years, works in clubs in the region including the new Razz Room in New Hope, PA, in New York at the famed 54 Below, Feinstein’s and Metropolitan Room and at the M Bar in Los Angeles. When he presented his “Bruce on Bennett” show at the Prince Music Theater in Philadelphia, he had a two-week sold-out engagement.

Eddie is a popular media personality. He was the original host of “Dancin’ on Air,” a popular TV show in the 80’s, and recently hosted the reunion show on Channel 17, WPHL-TV. He was also a radio talk-show host for many years on WWDB-FM. The Eddie Bruce Orchestra is one of the most prominent social bands in the region and recently he led them at the prestigious Academy Ball, The Assembly Ball and the Ball in the Square in Rittenhouse Square.
