In honor of the legendary Sammy Davis, Jr.’s birthday on December 8, Eric Jordan Young will perform a special show of Shakin’.
During Shakin’, Eric Jordan Young performs two classic Sammy Davis, Jr. songs: The Candy Man and Mr. Bojangles.
Entertainers like Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and, above all, Sammy Davis, Jr. inspired Young. In 2004 Young imagined, composed and brought to life Sammy & Me, a one-man musical where he portrays over 30 characters and sings famous songs from the Sammy Davis, Jr. catalogue. The show found triumph at the National Black Theatre Festival in 2007 and the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta. Sammy & Me was honored with the Katharine Cornell (Artie) Award and the Syracuse Area Live Theater Award. For more information about Sammy & Me visit www.sammyandme.com.
