Singing classics such as “Under My Skin,” “You Make Me Feel So Young,” “Luck be a Lady,” “A Foggy Day in London Town,” “New York New York,” “My Way,” “Come Fly with Me,” “Lady is a Tramp” and many more timeless hits, The Garden State Guys (Matt Faucher, Adair Watkins & Greg Frens) will present the work of this famous trio.  Sharing the stage as the house band are Nathan Hefner, David Gaines, Bill Altman, Ryan Guerra and Paul Babelay on piano, synth, guitar, bass and drums respectively.  Additionally, Altman serves as Music Director.
