Jeff Dwyer

This would make a great romantic gift for Mother or Father's Day! Jeff Dwyer is a powerful singer with a strong voice and an expressive style. What is not obvious, while listening to his renditions of 13 ballads on Stormy Nights, is that he took a 40 year “vacation” from singing.  Jeff Dwyer is back singing better than ever for this very special concert in benefit to The After Dark Fund, a non-profit aimed at helping musicians who fall on hard times as well as promoting local music with funds distributed to musicians to assist them with a range of expenses including medical bills, lost or stolen equipment and other hardships.  

As a teenager, Jeff Dwyer impressed many with his singing and he was even offered a record contract by Arthur Godfrey. However he chose instead to finish college, becoming a lawyer, author and professor. Dwyer returned to singing just two years ago when, at the urging of his adult children, he went into a recording studio to record a CD. His voice had grown quite a bit through the years and was now a very powerful instrument. Dwyer has been a vocalist ever since, recording seven CDs and making 16 videos for You Tube. As he nears 70, Jeff Dwyer is very much in his musical prime.

On Stormy Nights, Jeff Dwyer interprets a set of his favorite standards. Starting with “This Is My Life” and continuing with such songs as “My Way” (which Dwyer does in “his way,” not copying Sinatra), a rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Water” that builds and builds before ending quietly, the country feel of “Wayfaring Stranger” and a spectacular version of “Come Rain Or Come Shine,” the singer brings out the beauty of each song. 

Concert Host Committee: Nadine Wethington, Principal, Forte Leadership LLC; Honorable Joe R. Reeder, Former Under Secretary of the U.S. Army; Diane Blagman, Senior Director of Government, Law and Policy at Greenberg Traurig; Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans.

 Corporate Underwriter: UBS Wealth Management, Tyler Massey, Senior Vice President
