Join Jack for his inaugural Palm Springs performance!

Jack Donahue is an award-winning singer, songwriter and actor. Originally from Massachusetts, he has performed in many of the great jazz and cabaret venues across the country and has recorded four critically-acclaimed CDs. Jack was twice selected by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC) as “Best Male Jazz Vocalist”.
Jack has performed at major venues around the country including Catalina Bar & Grill in L.A., Sculler’s and Regattabar in Boston, Royal Room at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Zanzibar Blue in Philadelphia, and Birdland, Jazz Standard, and The Algonquin Hotel’s famous Oak Room in New York City. In addition, he has sung with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, headlined on The QE II’s world cruise and has played at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and at New York’s legendary Rainbow Room.
Jack’s latest CD, “Parade: Live in New York City”, documents Jack’s live performances at New York City’s famed Birdland jazz club. On “Parade” Jack takes on Great American Songbook material like “Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most”, musical theater classics such as “Before the Parade Passes By” and pop jewels like “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” by Jimmy Webb. The jazz-styled arrangements along with Mr. Donahue’s beautiful voice and spot-on interpretations reinvent these beautiful songs. In addition to his solo and recording careers, Jack has been featured in musical productions at theaters such the Old Globe (San Diego), Steppenwolf and Goodman (Chicago), Zach (Austin), Kalita Humphreys (Dallas), Prince Music Theater (Philadelphia), George Street Playhouse (New Jersey), and Abrons (New York City).
