"Assisted Living: The Musical" -

Monday Nov 13, 2017 8 PM

Is an 80-minute vaudeville-esque revue written for two

actors. The show’s host couple enters heaven, suspecting

their son pulled the plug… to get his hands on Dad’s vintage

Corvette. They don’t seem to mind. Instead, the couple

fondly remembers Pelican Roost, an active, full-service

retirement community. There, eighteen different characters

sing, dance, revel and celebrate their way through later life.

Musical sketches cover organ donation, legal issues,

hypochondriacs, spousal living arrangements, and much

more about life after 65.

The Gibson Brothers - Sunday Feb 11, 2018 2 PM

                 

One of the nation’s top Bluegrass bands, won the International

Bluegrass Music Association’s “Entertainers of the Year” award

in both 2012 and 2013. That organization also presented Eric

Gibson with the prestigious “Songwriter of the Year” award in

2013. The five-man group combines its wide-ranging

influences – live shows are often peppered with a variety of

covers ranging from Buck Owens to Tom Petty – into a unique

style that honors tradition while still sounding refreshingly new.

Brought up on a dairy farm in upstate New York, Eric and

Leigh Gibson formed the band in 1993 and have recorded 12

albums since then. Their repertoire includes material from

duos such as Phil and Don Everly (“Bye Bye Love” and “Crying

in the Rain”), Charlie and Ira Louvin (“Seven Year Blues”), Jim

and Jesse McReynolds (“Sweet Little Miss Blue Eyes”), and

Carter and Ralph Stanley (“How Mountain Girls Can Love”).

They also include a number of original songs written by one or

the other of the brothers. Concerts are always high-energy

romps through a range of genres. Vocal clarity is an important

aspect of their performances.

Jazz First  - Friday April 13, 2018 8 PM

Which is Nashua based, presents a program entitled "Jazz Through

the Decades," tracing the history of jazz from its early roots in

spirituals of the mid-1800s to the present day. Much of the repertoire

comes from the body of work generally known as the "Great

American Songbook" which encompasses the songs from the great

musicals and films of the 1920s through the 1960s. The group

strongly believes in that repertoire and feels that it needs to be kept

alive so that people young and old learn to appreciate its classic

nature. Commentary outlining major aspects of this genre’s

development and incorporation in America’s musical background will

be included.

The group consists of piano, upright bass, drums, sax/flute/clarinet,

and a vocalist to bring the songs alive.

Tony Pace - Saturday Oct 21, 2017 8 PM

​Enjoys headliner status as a vocalist and entertainer in Las

Vegas, Atlantic City and around the world. With formal studies

at Boston University and Berklee College of Music, he has 40

years of experience in which energy, music and comedy collide

when he is on stage. He delivers hilarious musical comedy,

crazy characters, and versatile musicianship, all wrapped

around an incredibly serious vocal delivery.

Tony performed in 13 theatrical productions and with an 8- piece band by the age of 18. He started his one-man show in the 1990s. He turned a two-day contract at Atlantic City’s Resorts Casino in 2004 into a 9-month long residency. A move to Las Vegas then landed him a headliner position in the main showroom at The Tropicana. He also enjoyed a prolonged run at the Greek Isle in Vegas. The blend of voice, talent, quick comedic wit, musicianship, and a keen sense of his audience makes him a true phenomenon.

The Four Freshmen - Tuesday Sept 12, 2017 8 PM

The Four Freshmen - America’s most enduring vocal group. After

69 years, a multitude of recordings and 6 Grammy Award-

nominations, they forge ahead, constantly redefining their sound

while maintaining the core integrity of their unique and innovative

vocal harmonies. While The Four Freshmen happily pay tribute to

the history and evolution of the classic “Freshmen sound,” they are

unafraid to break new ground through songs that strike a chord with

listeners from any generation. Whether by re-imagining classic

standards such as “Come Fly With Me”  and “Stompin’ At the Savoy,”

profoundly evocative and energetic interpretations of Antonio Carlos

Jobim’s seminal hit “The Girl From Ipanema,” or the introduction of

heart-wrenching originals like “A Little While,” these four

accomplished musicians exude nothing less than the energy,

sincerity, and passion deserving of the great music they perform.
