"Not only is he an exceptional woodwind player, having mastered all of the woodwinds from the piccolo to the baritone sax, he is also an outstanding jazz soloist. That, coupled with his arranging and production abilities, makes him a very special musician." ~Tony Camillo, Grammy Award Winning Record Producer

Italian American Festival presents Bobby Rydell

Mercer County Park, 1638 Old Trenton Road, West Windsor, New Jersey

With a career starting as a 1950’s teen idol, to the present where he pays homage to both jazz and The Great American Song Book, Bobby Rydell’s recording career earned him 34 Top 40 hits, placing him in the Top 5 artists of his era (Billboard Magazine). Bobby’s hits include million selling singles Volare, Wild One, We Got Love, Kissin’ Time, Swingin’ School, Wildwood Days, and Forget Him, selling a combined total of over 25 million records. In 1963, Bobby starred with Ann-Margret in the iconic movie “Bye Bye Birdie.” When the producers of “Grease” wanted to pay tribute to the era in which the popular musical was set, they named the high school where most of the action took place “Rydell High” in his honor. Bobby Rydell tours the nation, backed by full orchestras for large venues or a trio for intimate gigs, enthralling audiences with selections from The Great American Song Book by such composers as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Richard Rogers and more. His 2010, re-released album, "Bobby Rydell Salutes the Great Ones/Rydell at the Copa" was released to overwhelming critical praise for his artistic treatment of these great standards. In 1995, his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania named the street he was born “Bobby Rydell Boulevard.” Wildwood, New Jersey also has a street named for Bobby in appreciation for Bobby’s massive hit, “Wildwood Days.” Bobby also performs regularly in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. For over 30 years, Bobby has also performed in over 700 shows in the must-see production called “The Golden Boys.”
