Esteemed Esty

BobandPeterI first met legendary musician, arranger and producer Bob Esty in 1996, when he was Musical Director and I was the company Vocal Coach for Larry Hart’s Sisterella — the only stage production produced by Michael Jackson — in which I also had the pleasure of starring as “Ambassador Indursky.”

Bob contacted me a few years later to sing back-up for Barbra Streisand at the Shrine for Al Gore’s Nomination Celebration Concert benefit, and following that, two nights at the Staple Center for her sold-out concert, where Bob was the Musical Director for her backup choir.

We’ve remained close friends since our first time working together on Sisterella, and continue to work together on some very fulfilling projects. Here we are in the studio with singer-songwriter Scott Snapp at the microphone, recording new tracks of his singular theatrical pop.
