SURFIN'- The Music of The Beach Boys
January 23 - 26, 2020
Hosted by KRTH101 Radio Legend, Brian Beirne, Mr. Rock N' Roll®
Surfin' is a faithful recreation of what it would have been like to see The Beach Boys live, in concert, in their prime. The incomparable beauty of their vocal harmonies, the crashing back beat of Dennis Wilson's drums, the soaring surf guitar of Carl Wilson, and the genius of Brian Wilson's music, the uniband choreography, the Fender guitar line up, the famous custom striped shirts, right down to the black suede Beach Boys boots, it's all here. Surfin' is comprised of 5 professional musicians - all of whom have played with major rock artists, including one of our members who toured with the real Beach Boys and has been a long-standing member of the Brian Wilson Band.
FOLSOM PRISON LIVE - The Music of Johnny Cash
January 29 - February 1, 2020
In 1968, Johnny Cash walked on stage at Folsom State Prison, California and for the first time ever uttered his immortal words "Hello, I'm Johnny Cash." Already a worldwide superstar, that iconic phrase and the 45-minute live album that followed, cemented Cash as a legend of popular culture and began his rise to the heights of fame over the next three years that has rarely been equaled. "Live at Folsom Prison" was named at number 88 on "Rolling Stone" magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. This tribute will be bringing you this iconic album in its entirety cover to cover, as well as feature a set of the greatest hits from throughout his entire career. The show will also include June Carter and Carl Perkins who also performed at that concert.
TINA LIVE: A Tribute to Tina Turner
February 6 - February 9, 2020
Cookie Watkins brings more than a celebrity impersonation to her performance. An international touring Tribute Artist, Cookie has entertained hundreds of thousands of Tina Turner fans around the world. Music has been Cookie's mainstay since Duke Ellington brought her onstage to warble out a few tunes at the ripe age of fourteen. No stranger to Broadway, Cookie also performed in hit stage musicals like Guys & Dolls, Sweet Charity, and Hairbefore touring with the original cast of Beehive and Marie Wilson. There is no other Tina Turner impersonator on the planet that comes close. That's why Cookie Watkins was hand selected by "Legends in Concert," "The Next Best Thing" TV show and many other shows nationwide to be their Tina Turner Tribute Impersonator! She is Simply the Best! Cookie allows the audience to savor the saucy effects of Tina's "Higher" before a seamless transition to the throaty "Better Be Good to Me" followed by "What's Love Got To Do With It?". But Cookie and her audience know nothing tops the high-energy stand-up hit and closer "Proud Mary," and that is exactly what Cookie does Tina: "Proud!"
