I wanted to report that I have written a musical review of do-wop music and it has opened to sold-out houses the first 2 nights, and will probably sell out this weekend as well. I have set the story as a nostalgia tour of a semi-over-the-hill group from 1966 who are on their way to Disney with their wives, repeating their tour stops they made 40 years ago. It is absolutely mindless, silly, hokey. ridiculous, but seems to be really popular with the theater patrons.
I have had many people call me and say it is the best time they have had in 30 years. Musically it is pretty well done, and the theater part is very relaxed and allows lots of audience interaction. My group, the Classics, is having the time of their lives once again and we will generate about $5000 profit for the local community theater. 2 of our quartet are cancer survivors in the last 5 years so I am just thrilled to be performing at all!
I just wanted to make this announcement. This Saturday, I perform with the Peacock Alley Blues band at 11 AM, at noon with the Brookwoods , my folk geoup, and 7 pm my play, "Classics Road Trip" is playing followed by a 2 hour sing at a local wine bar after the show. I will be one tired, but fulfilled musician by midnight!
