THE SICILIAN TENORS "AMORE"!

 

 

 A TOAST TO MARILYN AND DEAN:

 


Join us for a toast! Two of the best in the business pair up to bring our audience the concert event of

all time….Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin together on stage. From well-known

songs as “That’s Amore”, “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”, and a charming

rendition of “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, this pair will take you back to the days of

Vegas in the 1950’s. Kittenish Susan Griffiths is one of the most recognizable

Marilyn’s. She starred in the TV movie “Marilyn & Me” and has many other TV

roles to her credit, including appearing on a giant video screen nightly while Sir

Elton John performed “Candle in the Wind” during his Red Piano live concert.

Andy DiMino was drawn to Dean Martin’s style of singing and collected CD’s,

videos, and books on the Rat Pack member for five years before he put on a tux

and donned that famous cigarette. His role is best described: “He really has the

manner, presence and voice of Dean down pat.” He has performed in Las Vegas,

Atlantic City and around the country with big band/concerts. Join us to recreate

a magical time with these two legendary performers!

 

CHERISH THE LADIES:

FRIDAY APRIL 4, 2014 – 7:30 p.m.

When describing CHERISH THE LADIES, the critics say

it best – “It is simply impossible to imagine an audience

that wouldn’t enjoy what they do.” Cherish the Ladies have

grown from a one-time concert concept to an Irish traditional

music sensation, literally the most successful and soughtafter

Irish-American group in Celtic music. Taking their

name from the name of a traditional Irish jig, the group

won recognition as the first and only all-woman traditional

Irish band. With their unique blend of instrumental talents,

beautiful vocals, captivating arrangements and step dancing,

this group combines all facets of Irish culture and puts it forth

in an immensely humorous and entertaining package. These

five ladies have traveled all over North and South America, the United Kingdom and Europe, Australia and New Zealand

and are equally at home in front of a symphony orchestra, performing arts center, folk festival or even the White House.

What a treat is in store for our audience

 

 

The Legacy of Floyd Cramer

Featuring grandson Jason Cramer Coleman

 

Sunday February 24, 2013 (DuBois Middle School) at 3PM

 Floyd Cramer is one of the most admired and beloved instrumentalists of all time.  His distinctive touch at the piano, which he called the “slip note”, is so uniquely his that it has become instantly identifiable and is exemplified by his 1960 smash hit, “Last Date”.  Countless music legends, among them Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, and Elvis Presley used his signature style.  Part of the “Nashville Sound”, Floyd enjoyed a successful career for more than 40 years as a solo recording artist, session pianist, and touring concert performer.  Floyd died from cancer in 1997 and his well-deserved posthumous inductions into both the Country Music and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame were testimony to his impact on the music industry.  Jason Cramer Coleman is the son of Floyd’s youngest daughter, Donna.  Jason and his Grandad’s relationship fueled Jason’s passion for music and formed a foundation upon which he is building his career in the studio and stage.  In 2010, Jason embarked on his first-ever nationwide concert tour.  Jason is currently carrying on with these popular concerts, doing his part to ensure that “the legacy continues.”
