He’s won NBC’s “The Voice.” He’s starred in a Broadway production of “Pippin.”
And now, Josh Kaufman is slated to bring his legendary pipes to Oakwood Resort Event Center in Syracuse.
The bearded, bespectacled crooner has had a passion for music his entire life. He participated in several choirs during his high school days in Blacksburg, Va. Some 15 years ago he relocated to the Indianapolis area to be a part of its music scene.
But it was a network singing competition that would give Kaufman his big break. In 2013, he auditioned for “The Voice.” His first performance on the show, a soulful rendition of George Michael’s “One More Try” earned him the coveted four-turn response from season six judges Usher, Blake Shelton, Shakira and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine.
His funky blue-eyed soul carried him through the competition, ultimately winning the competition by season’s end. Since, Kaufman has sat in with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon’s “The Tonight Show,” headlined the Indy Jazz Fest, toured the country with fellow “The Voice” alumni and, most recently, starred as the lead in the Broadway production of “Pippin.”
Kaufman will perform at Oakwood Resort at 7 p.m. Friday, May 22. Tickets are $37 ($32 if purchased today) for general admission, $50 for early access and $100 for the VIP experience. VIP tickets will be available on April 1, and only 100 tickets will be available. Corporate options are also available.
