(NEW EGYPT, NJ) -- The United Way of Ocean County has chosen Stormin' Norman Seldin and his "One Voice - Ten Fingers Show" to be the featured musical attraction at their "Gala! Glitz! & Games!" Benefit on Friday October 8, 2010, at the Laurita Winery & Vineyards in New Egypt, NJ from 7pm - 11pm. This evening will be filled with tantalizing food, dramatic wines, a seductive silent auction, a mesmerizing illusionist, 50/50 raffle just to mention a few of the exciting events throughout the evening.

Stormin' Norman will present his nationally known dazzling solo show covering original material, his famed New Orleans/Mississippi stride piano, in addition to songs from Van Morrison, Randy Newman, Elton John, Tom Waits, John Prine, and classic 50's/60's.

The list of artists he has appeared with include Clarence Clemons, Bobby Rydell, The Temptations, The Tramps, Roy Orbison, and Jackie Wilson just to name a few.
