The thrill of naming this Hunk of the Day is that he’ll be performing in a couple of days just a few miles away at The Mansion Inn at Saratoga Springs, NY. Seth Sikes will be bringing his set of Liza Minelli songs into that thoroughly-thoroughbred town for a performance on June 23, 2016. He’s also known for his take on Ms. Minelli’s famous Mom, Judy Garland, and since we need a little happiness right now I’m posting the link of his indelible performance of ‘Get Happy’ below.
As the Assistant Director for shows such as ‘The Nance’ and ‘Sondheim: The Birthday Concert’ he has spent a number of hours behind the scenes, but in a role that puts a show together. In his work showcasing the careers of Ms. Garland and Ms. Minnelli, Sikes steps into the spotlight himself to make their best-known songs his own. Sometimes in channeling the work of someone else, an artist reveals a little more of themselves. That’s the beauty of a great song, and the wonder of a great interpreter.
