Jackie Evancho
Jackie Evancho
Jackie Evancho's first performance on NBC's variety show "America's Got Talent" left audiences and judges astonished that such a perfect, beautiful, soprano voice could come from a 10 year-old girl. During her next appearance in the competition, judges asked Jackie to improvise a tune which she performed flawlessly. It wasn't just her musical gift and her age that floored the "America's Got Talent" audience, but Jackie's presence, poise and charm that truly made them take notice. One of the show's judges, Piers Morgan, explained, "You've got the whole package."

 

The young soprano from Pittsburgh with the stunning voice won runner-up and launched her soon-to-be legendary career, signing with Columbia Records shortly thereafter.

 

In a little over two years, Jackie's unique, gorgeous, soprano voice has won her millions of fans and her recordings have dominated the music and DVD charts. Now 13, Jackie has garnered the support of legendary music producers like David Foster and filmmakers such as Robert Redford. Billboard Magazine named Jackie to their list of music movers-and-shakers under the age of 21 in 2011 and again in 2012 because the soprano's "spellbinding, operatic vocals possess a power and poignancy that often moves listeners multiple times her age to tears."

The Temptations
That'll Be the Day
The Music of Buddy Holly with Symphony

Starring John Mueller as Buddy Holly

 

Rock and roll great Buddy Holly was one of the very first rock artists to ever use strings and full orchestra on a rock and roll record release. "True Love Ways," "It Doesn't Matter Anymore," "Raining in my Heart," and "Moondreams" were some of his official and loved releases that used full orchestration in an inventive way. In a classic radio interview that still survives today Buddy was asked, "Do you think rock and roll will survive or is it just a fad and if so what will you do next?" Buddy's response, "It might pick back up but I'd prefer to play something quieter anyhow." A telling foreshadow of what Buddy was to musically concentrate on in the future? We'll never know due to the tragic plane crash known as "the day the music died" but with this unique one of a kind presentation you can witness and hear firsthand how Buddy's music would have sounded with strings and full orchestration. You'll hear his great hits of course, "Peggy Sue," "That'll be the Day," "Oh, Boy," "Rave on" and many more but also get a rare presentation of songs that Buddy had demo's of but never released, presented live for the first time anywhere with full arrangements and orchestration! A must see show for fans of this era of classic 1950's music starring John Mueller as Buddy Holly.

 

John Mueller, the number one Buddy Holly tribute artist in the U.S and critically acclaimed former star of the U.S. touring version of the London/Broadway hit musical "Buddy..the Buddy Holly Story," and his own "Winter Dance Party" show performs as Buddy. The very authentic and energetic four piece backing band (guitar, drums, stand up bass and sax) includes Grammy award winning Mike Acosta on saxophone and arranger of the songs presented.

 

**PLEASE NOTE: To add to the excitement of this show, we will be filming it, LIVE, that night for promotional use. Get ready for our close-ups, Mr. Demille!**

The Commanders

The Commanders offers an entertaining show you won't soon forget!

Willie Nelson
Willie Nelson & Family
If ever the words "living legend" were more than just public relations bluster, the application would be to Willie Hugh Nelson.

 

The iconic Texan is the creative genius behind historic recordings like "Crazy," "Hello Walls," "Red Headed Stranger,"and "Stardust." His career has spanned six decades. His catalog boasts more than 200 albums. He's earned every conceivable award and honor to be bestowed a person in his profession. He has also amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor and activist.

 

In many ways, however, the weighty distinction "living legend" does Nelson a disservice, for it discounts the extent to which he is a thriving, relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In the last five years alone he delivered 10 new releases, two of which receied Grammy nominations, and a career-spanning box set, released his debut novel and again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, all the while continuing to lobby against horse slaughter and produce his own blend of biodiesel fuel.

 

As ever, Nelson tours tirelessly, climbing aboard Honeysuckle Rose III (he rode his first two buses into the ground), taking his music and fans on a seemingly endless journey to places that were well worth the ride.

Don Rickles
"Mr. Warmth" Don Rickles
Don Rickles is one of comedy's most famous funnymen. For over 55 years he has appeared in top showrooms and concert halls throughout the U.S. and internationally. He is regarded among the world's top entertainers.

 

Rickles continues to be very active on the stand-up comedy scene, and is still a popular performer in Las Vegas, Atlantic City and other venues around the country. He has no plans to retire. In a recent interview he said, "I'm in good health. I'm working better than I ever have. The audiences are great. Why should I retire? I'm like a fighter. The bell rings and you come out and fight. My energy comes alive. And, I still enjoy it."

 

Rickles' style is never mean-spirited and it's all just part of the act. In reality, most know him to be quite genial and pleasant. It has been said that being "insulted" by Rickles is like "wearing a badge of honor." He's known for saying the word "anyway" following most of his comedic insults. This is widely regarded as one of Rickles' classic comedic tactics that contribute to his impeccable sense of timing.

 

In the spring of 2012 at the Comedy Awards in New York City, Rickles was honored to become the second recipient of the prestigious "Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence." The previous honoree was David Letterman. The presentation was made to Don by Jon Stewart and Robert DeNiro and was telecast on Comedy Central.
