“BABY BOOM BABY” is Tommy Koenig’s true-life story and the story of his generation. He was born in Brooklyn, NY, in 1953, the year Rock and Roll was born and was raised in Rockaway Beach, the son of a musician who played with Glenn Miller during WWII. Koenig was greatly influenced by chanced meetings with John F. Kennedy and later George Carlin, and mostly by what The Beatles brought-the influence of music on Boomers’ culture and personal choices. In “BABY BOOM BABY” Tommy recounts the years he then struggled to keep up with the changing times, just missing Woodstock; The Rites of Passage of College, Travel, Sex and Drugs; and the ever-changing cultural and political landscape that music unleashed as it morphed from Rock to Disco to Punk to MTV to Rap and beyond.
During the show, Koenig channels dozens of well-known figures in a one-man tour de force spanning seven decades. Tommy’s impressions include The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen, Blondie, The Bee Gees, The Eagles and more.
