'STAND BACK I'M GONNA UKE' Set for 2014 United Solo Festival, 11/13
Take a musical journey back to your youth, or even before you were born, with the songs that speak to all of our hearts and shine through all of our memories. Slim Bob Slim -- the ukulele-playing vaudevillian alter-ego of Philadelphia actor, writer, and director Seth Reichgott -- takes you on a journey through the great old-timey music we all know and love. Featuring such favorites as "Take On Me," "Come On Eileen," "Walking On Sunshine," and many more, STAND BACK I'M GONNA UKE is a concert, an evening of storytelling, and a chance to tap your feet and sing along to all new arrangements of great songs from the 80s.
Join Slim Bob Slim at Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street, on November 13 at 7:30 pm. STAND BACK I'M GONNA UKE was first presented to rave reviews and delighted audiences as part of the 2013 SoLow Festival in Philadelphia and subsequently appeared in the 2014 Philadelphia FringeArts Festival (www.fringearts.com).
