Since his sensational cabaret debut in January 2000, Marcus Simeone has emerged as one of the most talked-about and celebrated singers to grace the stages of Manhattan's nightclubs since Streisand took the town by storm at the Bon Soir. Winner of the 2003 Back Stage Bistro Award as Outstanding Vocalist, the 2000 Cabaret Hotline Award, and back-to-back MAC Awards in 2004 and 2005, he is universally regarded for his heart-wrenching interpretations of lyrics, red-hot jazz sensibility, and powerful pop flair. "Marcus Simeone sings with a thrilling and ethereal tenor that makes him sound like the love child of Johnny Mathis and Jane Oliver . . . a special sound that deserves to be heard." So states Wayman Wong in the New York Daily News. And in Playbill, Mr. Wong says, "Chances are, he sounds like Mathis. When it comes to high and heavenly voices, I doubt even St. Peter has heard one as angelic as Marcus Simeone's." Marcus will present his Tribute to the Legendary Johnny Mathis in Le Dôme after exclusive engagements in New York City. Bill Van Sant, formerly of Worrall Community Newspapers, in reviewing Marcus's previous show at The Manor, called his performance "beautiful and haunting." Marcus brings his own special magic to the songs Johnny made famous, offering a personal homage to the man for whom Columbia Records pioneered the "greatest hits" album, now an industry tradition. Earlier in his career, Marcus appeared on the original Star Search as well as Showtime at the Apollo. Critic John Hoglund of Back Stage proclaimed Marcus "King of the power ballad . . . he has no peer."
