Cabaret favorites Nicolas King (the longest-running Chip in Disney's Beauty and the Beast) and Seth Sikes (associate director for Broadway's The Band's Visit and The Nance) will bring their new concert act The New Belters, which they debuted this past October, to Manhattan's 54 Below.
The New Belters will play the New York nightspot April 21-22 at 7 PM; the April 22 performance will also be live streamed. King and Sikes will be joined by musical director and special guest Billy Stritch.
The vocalists will also be accompanied by Daniel Glass on drums and Steve Doyle on bass.
King and Sikes joined forces in June 2022 for the first time to celebrate the late Judy Garland's 100th birthday. King previously said, “Seth and I share similar musical tastes, and watching him perform is a joy.” Sikes added, “Like me, Nicolas respects the artists who paved the way for us, and treats the material lovingly so it really soars. He’s an enormous talent, and I’m honored to share the stage with him.”
King toured the country as Liza Minnelli’s opening act, and has performed on stages all over the world from Carnegie Hall to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Sikes is one of New York City’s top draws, regularly selling out-shows at NYC’s 54 Below with acclaimed musical tributes to Judy Garland, Bernadette Peters, Barbra Streisand, and more.
