Joe's Pub Announces December Performances
Joe's Pub has announced December performances:
JOEY & RORY FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS - December 19 at 7:00pm
Tickets are $30 Premium / $20 Reserved.
A night of Christmas songs & stories from Joey and Rory’s farmhouse in Tennessee. Award-winning country music singing duo Joey and Rory bring their A Farmhouse Christmas album to the stage on their first ever Christmas tour this coming 2011 holiday season. The theme is right at home for the duo, as their personal lives are rooted in the 1870’s farmhouse that they live in the small community of Pottsville, TN. Expect a night of heart-touching stories and songs along with hysterical comedy fun all on one stage. Rory built his status as a hit songwriter punching out chart-topping songs like Blake Shelton’s “Some Beach,” Clay Walker’s “The Chain of Love,” and most recently Easton Corbin’s #1 hit “A Little More Country Than That” along with cuts by Kenny Chesney, Randy Travis, Collin Raye, Reba and many others.
Everett Bradley’S HOLIDELIC- December 19 at 9:30pm
Tickets are $25.
Holidelic will shake you free of the Andy Williams and Nutcracker rut. Written, produced and directed by Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, producer, actor and dancer Everett Bradley, Holidelic debuted in 2002 at Joe’s Pub and has sold out night after night since the beginning. Bradley is now taking the show on the road, bringing the magic, the mirth, the mayhem and the memories to theatres and performance venues throughout the Northeast. Now entering its 9th season, this holiday funk-tacular blends the influences of P-Funk, Sly Stone and other 1970’s and ‘80’s funk and soul bands into original songs that celebrate diversity, mild familial seasonal dysfunction, individuality, and holiday booty shaking. This is a show for all races, creeds and lifestyles… even for all ages with a little parental guidance!
BETTY WITH GUEST Gloria Steinem (LATE SHOW ONLY)- December 20 at 7:00pm & 9:30pm
Tickets are $25.
BETTY rings in the season with a riotous return to Joe's Pub, rockin' the halls with their unique repertoire of songs, twisted spoken word and blizzards of harmonies. BETTY's busy year has been packed with triumphant performances across Europe and the US, more music for television and fun projects, like the long-awaited re-release of their legendary songs from HBO's "Encyclopedia." Come celebrate as BETTY and their special guests make more holiday memories to roast your chestnuts. Special guest appearance by Gloria Steinem (late show only).
After a wave of ecstatic reviews for their 2011 high concept take on Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music," Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata is thrilled to return to Joe's Pub for their annual Holiday Show where they will turn a whole slew of other iconic ditties upsidedown and sideways. Expect a healthy representation from the aformentioned CD (The Hills Are Alive), BRO's unique interpretations of music from Handel's Messiah (a future album), and many other seasonal favorites. And an embarrassingly rich lineup of guest singers which include Carolyn Leonhart, Victoria Cave, Everett Bradley and more!
