“IF STEVE LAWRENCE AND EYDIE GORME DON'T ENTERTAIN YOU, THEN NO ONE CAN ENTERTAIN YOU!”

NATIONAL COLUMNIST AND TELEVISION TALKSHOW PERSONALITY LARRY KING MADE THIS COMMENT IN A RECENT COLUMN. HE DOES NOT STAND ALONE IN HIS APPRAISAL OF STEVE AND EYDIE. THEY ARE TWO OF THE FINEST ENTERTAINERS IN SHOW BUSINESS, AND HAVE SPENT THEIR ENTIRE ADULT LIVES DOING WHAT THEY LOVE BEST, SINGING.

THE YEAR 2000 MARKED AN IMPORTANT CAREER MILESTONE WHEN STEVE & EYDIE CELEBRATED THEIR 40TH ANNIVERSARY AS ONE OF OUR MOST POPULAR SINGING DUOS. IT WAS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1960 WHEN THE PAIR STEPPED ON THE STAGE FOR THE FIRST TIME AS "STEVE & EYDIE." "EYDIE AND I HAVE BEEN SINGING TOGETHER ALL THESE YEARS AND STILL, NOTHING GIVES US GREATER JOY THAN PERFORMING FOR AN AUDIENCE," SAYS STEVE LAWRENCE.

STEVE & EYDIE WERE THE 1995 RECIPIENTS OF THE SOCIETY OF SINGERS' PRESTIGIOUS "ELLA LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD," AT A GALA THAT WAS HELD DECEMBER 7, 1995 IN BEVERLY HILLS. THE SOCIETY OF SINGERS IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT EXISTS TO HELP PROFESSIONAL SINGERS THAT ARE IN NEED OF COUNSELLING AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE. PAST RECIPIENTS ARE ELLA FITZGERALD (FOR WHOM THE AWARD IS NAMED), FRANK SINATRA, TONY MARTIN AND PEGGY LEE.

  IN ADDITION, STEVE & EYDIE HAVE RECEIVED A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FROM THE SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME IN NEW YORK. THE AWARD, WHICH WAS PRESENTED BY MERV GRIFFIN, HONORED THE DUO'S ON-GOING TRIBUTE TO AMERICAN SONGWRITERS.

STEVE AND EYDIE SHARE A GRAMMY FOR THEIR ALBUM, “WE'VE GOT US,” AND EYDIE WON A SECOND GRAMMY FOR HER SOLO RECORDING OF “IF HE WALKED INTO MY LIFE.” STEVE EARNED THE NEW YORK DRAMA CRITICS AWARD AND TONY NOMINATION FOR HIS BROADWAY DEBUT AS THE STAR OF “WHAT MAKES SAMMY RUN.” THE COUPLE SUBSEQUENTLY SHARED THE BROADWAY STAGE IN THE MUSICAL COMEDY-DRAMA, “GOLDEN RAINBOW.”

STEVE AND EYDIE'S TELEVISION SPECIALS SALUTING THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGWRITERS ARE CONSIDERED PRIMERS OF QUALITY, STYLE AND SHOWMANSHIP. THE CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED "STEVE AND EYDIE CELEBRATE IRVING BERLIN" RECEIVED SEVEN EMMY AWARDS. THEIR TRIBUTE TO GEORGE AND IRA GERSHWIN, “OUR LOVE IS HERE TO STAY,” GARNERED TWO MORE EMMY’S, AND “FROM THIS MOMENT ON,” THEIR MUSICAL SALUTE TO COLE PORTER, WON THE DUO AN AWARD OF EXCELLENCE FROM THE FILM ADVISORY BOARD.

A HIGHLIGHT OF STEVE & EYDIE’S CAREER WAS THEIR “DIAMOND JUBILEE WORLD TOUR” WITH FRANK SINATRA. PLAYING TO SRO AUDIENCES AROUND THE WORLD AND GARNERING RAVE REVIEWS, THE ONE YEAR TOUR CULMINATED AT NEW YORK'S MADISON SQUARE GARDEN. FRANK SINATRA SAYS, “STEVE AND EYDIE REPRESENT ALL THAT IS GOOD ABOUT PERFORMERS AND THE INTERPRETATION OF A SONG ... THEY'RE THE BEST.”

AUDIENCES EVERYWHERE KNOW THEY CAN ALWAYS EXPECT THE FINEST OF STYLE AND MATERIAL WHENEVER STEVE LAWRENCE AND EYDIE GORME ARE ON STAGE WITH THE BEST OF MUSICIANS AND THE BEST OF AMERICAN POPULAR MUSIC.
