The Philly Pops
“We love host/cabaret vocalist Eddie Bruce, so when we heard that he’d be
singing with the Philly Pops this weekend, the first thing we thought was, “dag,
where’s the pre-bash?” Boyds on Chestnut Street came up with the answer,
as well as the location. Frank Giordano, president of the Pops, and Michael
Krajewski, new music director, thanked Bruce for joining the orchestra for its
“Viva Philadelphia” program at the Kimmel. And why did they hold the party
at Philly’s salon of sartorial-ism? “Boyds’ owner Ralph Yaffe and Eddie went to
school together — George Washington High School — and Ralph offered to
share in Eddie’s excitement,” says Bruce’s buddy and PR rep Sharla Feldscher.”
