A RUSTY'S DEBUT!

LEGACY OF BING CROSBY!
feat. PHIL CROSBY, JR.
Bing Crosby's Grandson

Bing Crosby was undoubtably one of the greatest and most popular interpretors of the Great American Song Book, and gave us dancers many of the most danceable tunes of the 20th century.

His grandson, Phil Crosby, Jr., carries on the tradition.

ABOUT PHIL CROSBY, JR.

PHIL CROSBY JR. BIOGRAPHY

The 20th century, without a doubt, was THE period for the greatest vocalists and music in American history. Phil Crosby Jr., vocalist, musican, and jazz artist, has defined himself as a stand out entertainer continuing this legacy of American music and culture, for an entirely new generation of listeners to appreciate. Inspired by the American Songbook, Phil identifies with some of the most influential crooners of the period. Crosby, who grew up surrounded by music, musicians, and entertainers, in one of the most well known families in Hollywood, found his own unique passion for music surrounded by the music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Perry Como, Andy Williams, and of course, the greatest and most legendary crooner of all, Bing Crosby, Phil's grandfather. An entertainer since the age of 8, starring in several television shows and commercials, Phil's musical career was sired with his first blues-rock fusion band, from during his teenage years. As a seasoned veteran of the L.A. rock scene, Phil's creative inspiration has extended into his Nashville roots, as a guitarist, as well as a Country and folk song singer, touring throughout the country. Phil's artistic journey led him to revisit the classical study of music and art, with a stint at the Humboldt County Light Opera Company. Phil's creative quest subsequently led him back to his ancestral beginnings, The American Songbook, and early 20th century jazz.

Phil is a pillar of the Los Angeles art scene, and has performed at several Hollywood landmark theaters there and around the world. He has appeared on stage, on television and on radio, as well as in nightclubs in L.A., New York City, San Francisco, Nashville Tennessee, Tokyo Japan, and in Dublin Ireland. The Holiday season inspires Phil to perform his applauded Christmas show, all the while he is active as a philanthropist, performing for noble and honorable charitable causes and events. Phil has produced an acclaimed cabaret act in tribute to his grandfather, as well as a host of classic variety shows in the newly renovated Hollywood area.

Phil has developed his own unique crooning style, and an interpretative approach to his music, prompted by the great jazz singers, including his grandfather, and by a world of popular music with over a century of American songs. Phil's passion lies with his interest in sharing his insight and love of this very special period of American music, with younger generations and with those who appreciate this great movement in American music.

Boogie Woogie Swingouts & Style Options

Two faces seen at Rusty's and Lindy by the Sea whenever the music gets hot are Scott McNabb and Cheryll Lynn. They both started at Lindy by the Sea in it's very first year in 1998. They moved to New York for a spell, where they danced to the sensational 1920s-1930s Vince Giordano Orchestra, and had to get fast dancing chops to survive. When they came back to California some years later, they were one of the most standout Shag and Bal dancers, especially noted for their smooth, lanky style.
