Wayne Sutton's new show -- a musical examination of love through the eyes of a man who's still very much in love with his wife after some three decades -- is a real winner.

Sutton's rich voice has matured -- it's a warm, inviting baritone now. And with arrangements and direction by a handful of pros, the presentation is superb.

There are powerhouse ballads ('Come Rain or Come Shine'), heartfelt torch songs ('If I Ever Say I'm Over You') and earnest confessions ('I Love My Wife'). There are wonderful classics ('All The Way') as well as new songs ('Look in My Eyes') and Sutton does each and every one to a T. He's confidant, secure and in fine voice. I'm sure the show will be well received when he takes it to the Big Apple next week. The only song that doesn't fit the mood, at least for this listener, is a country/western-sounding ditty that ends the program. Otherwise, 'Comes Love' is a feather in Sutton's cap.



Wayne Sutton is multi-talented.

A college voice major, through the years he appeared in leading roles in regional theatre productions of The Fantasticks; Brigadoon; Oklahoma; Company; South Pacific; Side By Side By Sondheim; The King and I; Guys and Dolls and many others.

Wayne delights his audience's while his relaxed, at ease, love of interaction with them captivates, charms and involves all. His charisma makes his concerts an intimate experience.
you will find that he is equally at home as a solo performer or with his band 'Shades of Sinatra'.

He has performed world wide with recent appearances in the Danny's Skylight Room & Chez Suzette's in New York City, Hotel Du Lac-Bellagio, Italy; Shadow Lounge, and The Union Club in London as well as rooms in San Francisco (The Plush Room); Palm Springs; and Los Angeles.

Wayne Sutton brings to the stage an engaging self-confidence and intimacy born of life's experience along with the awareness of how precious each day is. He and his wife Suzi, a breast cancer survivor, raised their two sons Scott and Andrew,

Recommend

We really enjoyed the music of Wayne Sutton and his band. We were able to pick songs to be played at the event. The only complaint was he ended too soon. The dance floor was packed and we wanted to extend the band for an extra 1/2 hour. The contract said midnight, so that's when they stopped. The complaint is really a compliment cause we didn't want the music to stop. He was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend the band.
