THE SIXTIES SHOW™

The Greatest 1960’S Musical Recreation Show on Earth Featuring Former Members of Bob Dylan’s Bands, Dave Davies’ band (The Kinks), James Brown’s Bands and NBC TV’s Saturday Night Live Band.
The Sixties Show will transport you back to the 1960’s by meticulously recreating and celebrating the sights and sounds of that period. You will experience everything from the stripped down pulsating 2 guitars, bass, drum and vocal harmony of the British invasion, through the pivotal transition of orchestrated blasts of harmonious rapture of the late 60’s. A cross generational crowd pleaser, the band is known for re-creating spot on, note for note re-creations of the hits, B-sides and deep album cuts from the greatest songs from that era. The show also includes a combination of narration and 60’s archival audio and newsreel footage.
THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 2019 @ 8PM | FOLK/ROOTS | $45/$40/$35.
Red Molly combines the forces of three songwriters with unique character and style, creating a show that is larger than the sum of its parts. Known for their 3-part harmony, their songs and arrangements lay bare a love of vocal blend. The band weaves together threads of American music—from country & blues to folk & bluegrass. Their innovative instrumentation is suited for roots-rock and heartful ballads alike, and the alchemy of their personalities onstage draws even back row listeners into a sense of intimacy. Red Molly is simply a joy to experience.
Opening Act: Marc Douglas Berardo, American singer-songwriter whose sharply drawn, award winning song portraits are cast with unusual and beguiling characters and places.

The group is led by co-band directors Mireya I. Ramos on violin and Shae Fiol on vihuela. Together, they have graced international stages from Chenai, India to Paris, France and have extensively toured the U.S. “There should be fireworks named for this band, for all the intensity and color and life that bursts forth from Flor de Toloache.” – NPR
ROSIE REVERE, ENGINEER

Ms. Greer’s classroom includes three inquisitive out-of-the-box thinkers. Rosie Revere has big dreams. Iggy Peck has a relentless passion for architecture. And Ada Twist’s curiosity can drive her teacher crazy. This new musical follows Miss Greer’s class on a field trip to a remote island. When the small footbridge connecting the island to the mainland collapses (and their teacher faints), Iggy, Ada and Rosie must come together to solve the crisis using their wits, engineering prowess, and problem-solving skills. Based on the book series by Andrea Beaty (“Rosie Revere, Engineer;” “Iggy Peck, Architect;” “Ada Twist, Scientist”), this fun new musical spotlights the STEM curriculum (focusing on science, technology, engineering and math). Ages 5-9. A TheatreWorks USA Production
JOHN PIZZARELLI: A Centennial Celebration of Nat King Cole
SATURDAY, APRIL 27 @ 7PM & 9:30PM | $59/$49
World-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli celebrates the centennial of this artist who inspired him most, Nat King Cole. While plenty of jazz greats have influenced the GRAMMY nominee, Nat King Cole has been Pizzarelli’s hero and foundation for the past 25 years. “I’ve always said we’re an extension, a 21st-century version of what that group was,” Pizzarelli explains. He’s devoted two albums to his music, Dear Mr. Cole in 1994 and P.S. Mr. Cole, recorded and released five years later. Pizzarelli returns to the Emelin with his Trio in 2019, to perform a very special tribute to the artist who has inspired him most in A Centennial Celebration of Nat King Cole.
