Steve "The Whistler" Herbst

The song once told us to whistle while we work. Steve Herbst works as he whistles and when it comes to getting an audience off its feet he reaches into his repertoire for "Danny Boy," the tune that secured for him the title of International Grand Champion Whistler.

A New Yorker, Herbst is to whistling what James Galway is to a flute. Both, indeed, have performed at venues such Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall.

"Danny Boy," like you've never heard it before rounds of this CD's selection of Broadway show tunes delivered in Herbst's unique three-octave range. Details from www.stevethewhistler.com.
