New York City favorites David Maiocco and Chuck Sweeney will reprise their iconic performances as the legends who defined four decades of music and pop culture.

David Maiocco has traveled globally playing for some of the most iconic legends of all times – or at least, reasonable facsimiles! For 14 years, he played the piano and the role of Mort Lindsay in Judy Garland Live! starring Tommy Femia in dozens of U.S cities including New York, San Francisco, Chicago, as well as London, England. David has served as musical director and pianist for Chuck Sweeney as Miss Peggy Lee, James Beaman’s Marlene Dietrich Live at The Café Du Paris, and Black Market Marlene in New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Munich and Berlin, Germany – Steven Brinberg’s Simply Barbra – Carol Channing and Friends with Richard Skipper – James Beaman’s Lauren Bacall at Don’t Tell Mama. Off Broadway - orchestrator, musical director, and conductor for “I Will Come Back!” by Timothy Gray and Hugh Martin at The Players Theatre. Classical piano studies with Burton Hatheway of Fairfield, CT; Alfred E. Lee and Jung Ja Kim; Boston Conservatory, and Gabriel Chodos; Aspen Music Festival. In cabaret concerts and guest spots, David has had the pleasure of playing for artists such as Ben Vereen, John Barrowman, Karen Mason, Pamela Myers, Christine Pedi, Sidney Myer, among others. His Cabaret work earned him the 2000 Backstage Magazine Bistro Award for Outstanding Achievement in Musical Direction as well as the 2002 MAC Award for Best Musical Director.

A gifted pianist, he makes that piano sound like the Philharmonic!" - John Hoglund Back Stage Magazine.

"The production values are first rate, notably the musical direction of David Maiocco" - Karl Levett Backstage Magazine

"David, who appeared quite unexpectedly on the New York cabaret scene has certainly made his mark in the Big Apple" - Stu Hamstra Cabaret Hotine

David K. Maiocco plays sometimes pounding, sometimes subtle arrangements on a baby grand piano that often sound like a fuller orchestra" - Sarasota Herald Tribune

Chuck Sweeney has been dazzling audiences with his delightfully offcenter comedic tribute to the legendary Miss Peggy Lee since 19—. Let’s just say, for a LONG, long time. It all started in his living room imitating “The Wizard of Oz”, “The Sound of Music” and all of the guests on the Mike Douglas and Merv Griffin shows. From the legendary Madeira Room at The Pilgrim House in Provincetown to The Waldorf Astoria Grand Ballroom, Chuck has been fortunate enough to perform in some of the most well known cabarets and theaters in the U.S. and Canada. His repertoire of comic impressions include Judy Garland, Bette Davis, Eartha Kitt, Tina Turner, Phyllis Diller, Liza, Joan Rivers, Cher As “Miss Lee” he has performed in just about every cabaret in NYC (Don’t Tell Mama, The Duplex, Symphony Space, Friars Club, Madison Square Garden to name a few) and participated in too many comedy shows to list here. He was honored to be a featured Guest Star and Host(ess) at The “Just For Laughs” Montreal Comedy Festival Queer Comics Night. He is a recipient of the Backstage Bistro Award and a two-time M.A.C. Award Winner for Outstanding Impersonation under the Musical Direction of David Maiocco. Chuck is extremely happy and excited to share the stage with David/ Liberace in “Lee Squared”. Thank you for including me in the fun Maestro!
