Puddles Pity Party Coming To Poughkeepsie
Puddles Pity Party is set for a show in Poughkeepsie this fall. Since 2013 he's used YouTube to gain exposure and fans with covers of songs by David Bowie, Johnny Cash, and Leonard Cohen.
Tickets are on sale Friday and start at $36. You may recognize Puddles from his America's Got Talent audition from the 2017 season. He'll be taking the stage at The Bardavon on Sunday, November 18th.
Born Mike Geier, he also fronts the band Kingsized and has been seen performing with Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox. According to Geier,
Puddles gives an emotive performance that resonates with all kinds of folks. The crowd really responds to him. There’s something about a giant sad singing clown that comforts us, let’s us know it’s ok to feel, to show our feelings. It’s a sad and beautiful world, and we’re all in it together, even when we’re totally alone.”
While Puddles is not afraid to belt out the classics, he rarely does interviews. He doesn't speak from the stage, the only time he opens his mouth is to sing.
