If one photo could tell the story of the Engelbert Humperdinck concert at Seton Park in Riverdale last night it would be this one, as the famed singer came to the edge of the stage as 50 - 75 fans shimmied their way to the bottom of the stage to snap a photo or two while they were up close to one of their singing idols. The 90 minute concert was full of Humperdinck's long list of hit songs (many Grammy Award winners) such as 'Release Me', After the Lovin', and 'Am I That Easy to Forget to name a few.
. The concert the third year of the 'Summertime Concerts' presented by State Senator Jeff Klein was well attended by over 600 people making this the largest attended concert held in Seton Park. In between songs Engelbert Humperdinck (whose real name is Jerry Dorsey) told stories of being with other famous stars who would mangle his stage name in various ways. The photos below will tell the rest of the story.
