Teddy Geiger at the Gramercy Theater

Teddy Geiger was a teen-ager when he appeared on VH1’s In Search of the New Partridge Family in 2004. He had acting roles on the CBS/VH1 television series Love Monkey in 2006 and in the movie The Rocker in 2008. Last month he was featured on the USA Network's Royal Pains. His recorded music has placed on the Billboard charts. Not surprisingly, I had never heard of him.

I was one of what seemed to be only a handful of males at his concert at the Gramercy Theater tonight. Playing acoustic guitar and electric keyboard, Geiger performed light songs, many about falling in and out of romantic relationships. His teen-aged fans, however, loved him so much that after his last song they lined up outside on the sidewalk for the opportunity to reenter the theater and get his autograph. I passed.
