14th Annual MAC Awards honoring
Barry Manilow

MAC Awards 2000: Barry Manilow, who was honored with the Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs (MAC) Board of Directors Award, recalled his early cabaret days in New York. It was nice to find the composer all alone and unaccompanied at a portable keyboard, sailing through a medley of some of the ditties composed for commercials and a few phrases from early pop hits. Winding up with Rupert Holmes' "Studio Musician," Manilow made a fitting evening closer for an industry salute to the untiring sidemen. (Variety, 4/10/2000)
