Michaels, who became lead singer of the popular group The Brooklyn Bridge after the death of Johnny Maestro, has been touring the world for more than 30 years.

Michaels returned to South Florida in 2009, and began focusing his attention on the music of life — songs that bring back memories and generate smiles. In 2012, he stepped in with The Brooklyn Bridge, the legendary band from the ’60s and ’70s, and still tours with the band today.

The July 7 concert will include songs by Neil Diamond, Neil Sedaka, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, The Righteous Brothers and other well- known artists. Michaels vocal skills allow for spot-on interpretations of the songs as performed by the original artists. He is known for closing his concerts with a tear-inducing salute to America, while singing the hit Lee Greenwood song, “God Bless the USA. ”
