Swansea-based singer Amy Sinha had some fun interviewing Buddy Greco and his wife, the singer Lezlie Anders for the Intowntoday site, before the couple’s performance at the Taliesin Arts Centre in Swansea.
Amy says: “I snuck into the rehearsal, and talked to them both during the break. Buddy Greco is a real charmer, slightly flirtatious, even at 83, but lovely and approachable. When I told him I am called Amy, and that I am a singer, he sang me “Once In Love With Amy” straight back, remembering the tune from his days in the Benny Goodman band. Luckily on the radio you can’t hear me blush.”
Greco and Anders have a show “Fever, the music of Miss Peggy Lee”, which they are expecting to be bring back to the West End of London in 2010.
