Scott Coulter and Jessica Hendy to Headline THE QUENTIN TARANTINO SONGBOOK at BB Kings
Scott Coulter and Jessica Hendy headline "The Quentin Tarantino Songbook, Vol. 1: Music from Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown" on Wednesday, May 4 at 8 p.m. at BB Kings Blues Club & Grill.
This is the third installment of the Tarantino themed cabaret created, produced and directed by Adam B. Levowitz. Come experience the personality of Quentin Tarantino films through the songs that are forever connected to his iconic characters. Can you ever hear "Little Green Bag" by The George Baker Selection and NOT think about Reservoir Dogs? Or Bobby Womack's "Across 110th Street" and NOT see imagine Pam Grier in the opening credits of Jackie Brown? And who can forget John Travolta and Uma Thurman dancing the twist with Chuck Berry singing "C'est La Vie" in Pulp Fiction? Remove these songs from the film and you'll leave holes the size of the one in Marvin's face. And if you've never seen any of his films, not to worry, you'll hear a lot of great songs sung by phenomenal Broadway veterans backed by the Hateful Eight Orchestra - the hottest 8-piece funk band on the great white way.
The program includes 24 songs, including "Son of A Preacher Man," "Like a Virgin," "The Night the Lights Went Out In Georgia," and "Hooked on a Feeling."
