Singer & acclaimed jazz and cabaret performer

Jack Donahue has charmed audiences from Boston to Chicago to LA with his beautiful voice, winning stage presence, and unique blend of jazz, Broadway and cabaret styles. He was selected by the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC) as “Best Male Jazz Vocalist” in both 2008 and 2009. In 2011 Donahue released his fourth recording– “Parade: Live in New York City” (Two Maples Music)– a live recording centered around his 2010 performance at Birdland, New York’s famed jazz club. “Parade” presents a collection of songs by great songwriters from Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, and Jerry Herman to contemporaries like Jimmy Webb and Kenny Rankin. Donahue’s other critically-acclaimed recordings include: “A Small Blue Thing” (2007, Two Maples Music), “Strange Weather” (2004, PS Classics), and his recording debut “Lighthouse” (2001). Jack Donahue’s frequent collaborators include Peter Eldridge (two-time Grammy Award winner, New York Voices), Kate McGarry (Grammy nominee for Best Female Jazz Recording), and piano legend Fred Hersch.

“Donahue is a classic. Blessed with looks and an undeniably lovely voice. Lots of singers are striving to be the next Mel Torme’. This guy’s a contender.”
— Jonathan Takiff, Philadelphia Daily News

“Armed with a smoothly authoritative tenor that suggests Michael Feinstein crossed with Mel Torme’, and the eclectically sophisticated taste of Mark Murphy, Jack Donahue is a guy worth keeping an eye on.”
— Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times

“Possessed of a beautiful voice, taste beyond his years, and a wide-ranging intelligence, the handsome New Yorker shows that this sophisticated art form is not just alive and well but thriving.”

— Andrew Patner, Chicago Sun-Times
