Micky Dolenz

Hey, hey, its Micky Dolenz!

The Monkees singer finished up back to back performances of his “A Little Bit Broadway a Little Bit Rock n’ Roll” show at the Studio 54 theater Saturday night and we have the Everly Brothers to thank for the fact that he still sings classics like “Pleasant Valley Sunday” and “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone.”
“I remember going to see the Everly Brothers reunion and I was a huge Everly Brothers fan,” he said of a 1983 performance he caught while living in London.
“I remember sitting right there … and wondering, ‘God, I hope they sing the songs I remember like ‘Wake Up Little Suzy’ and ‘Cathy’s Clown’ and they did, just like I remember them.” Dolenz (l.) was thrilled.
“I was standing up crying with the rest of the crowd,” he told [email protected] “And I remember thinking, ‘If I’m ever asked to come back and do that singing thing again, I’m going to make darn sure I give the audience what they want because that’s why they’re here.’”
Sure enough, Dolenz delivers Monkees hits at his 70-minute concerts along with show tunes he’s added to his catalog while performing Broadway hits like “Hairspray,” which he just finished doing in London. That’s where he got the show name “A Little Bit Broadway a Little Bit Rock n’ Roll,” which is a play off the 1967 Monkees song “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You.” That tune was written by an up-and-coming Brooklyn kid named Neil Diamond.

NORDSTROM CELEBRATES JEFFREY

lIt’s going to be Tuesday Night Fever on W. 14th St., when Nordstrom helps Jeffrey celebrate 25 years of style with a disco-themed party at the fashion brand’s Meatpacking District store. Ladyfag is hosting the throwback dance party and Honey Dijon will provide the tunes. Granted, disco was already a thing of the past 25 years ago, but why let that get in the way of a good theme party?
