Performing a selection of songs, sharing stories of his tragicomic journey from chunky outcast reject to silver-fox outlier-starlet, Gene Dante takes us on a transformative journey from high-school rocker to international Rocky Horror Show tour member, from acclaimed New England Hedwig of Angry Inch fame. to seeing his music video for A Madness to His Method on MTVs LOGO, to finally getting that seemingly unattainable under 5 role opposite a major Hollywood star on a soon-to-be streaming network show, he conveys the importance of chronicling and celebrating every victory, no matter how small.
In concert, Gene Dante is the Chiseled White Duke. Leading his Future Starlets, Dante mixes Bowies makeup, Iggy Pops shirtless-ness, and Freddie Mercurys theatrics into a glammy groove. Boston Herald
Dante is an anomaly in Bostons music scene: an artist who has refused to pigeonhole his talents. Yes, hes a singer and quite a good one, with a laconic croon reminiscent of Bryan Ferry and Lou Reedwho fronts a glam-rock band called Gene Dante & The Future Starlets. And yes, hes an actor, but hes never defined himself strictly as one or the other.The Boston Globe
