We are delighted to announce nine time Grammy Award winner, Cheryl Bentyne is now part of the Casting New Lives’ roster! “When Cheryl is not singing with the Manhattan Transfer, Bentyne has expressed her desire to expand her solo opportunities and has asked Casting New Lives to help make that happen. We are delighted to have her,” says Brinka Rauh, co-owner of Casting New Lives.
Cheryl has some current shows, such as Dreaming of Mister Porter, Gershwin Songbook, and Songs of Our Time, that we will market as well as new material that includes a tribute to Duke Ellington with the Duke Ellington Orchestra that will be ready in the next few months. These shows will be incredibly entertaining and delightful for Cheryl’s fans as well as a great draw for PACs. We are very excited to be a part of this amazing artist’s team.
When Cheryl Bentyne joined The Manhattan Transfer in 1979, everything became “just right.” It has been with her that the group has attained its status as the most successful harmony group of all time – each part coming together with an unmistakable chemistry that not only nurtures the group as a whole, but also lets the individual contributions of each partner come through. Cheryl’s are obvious: From her memorable solo in “Meet Benny Bailey” to her portrayal of Lucy in the “Blee Blop Blues” video to her exquisite voicing of Django Reinhardt’s guitar solo on “Clouds” (adapted from Nuages) on SWING, as well as the most recent critically acclaimed Miles Davis solo on TUTU, from Vibrate. Her talents are much of what is The Manhattan Transfer.
