The Performing Arts Center at Five Towns College will once again be honoring an evening of class and style as we present ”The Great American Songbook”… Proudly featuring “The Arnie Gruber Band”… Back by popular demand, “Arnie Gruber” is no doubt , one of the finest most effervescent performers of this genre of music..! ”Arnie” delivers an up beat and swinging style, that he combines with an energetic and witty stage presence that keeps his audiences tapping their feet and smiling… With his creative musical direction he weaves arrangements around his impressive piano styles… Showcasing his original versions of the “Songbook” classics… With passion and devotion to the “Sinatra-esque” phrasing and vocal quality… Please join us in welcoming ”Arnie Gruber” and his Band… I promise you will be greatly entertained by his delightful and charming banter as he expresses his tribute to the most melodic and memorable music ever written… !!
Remembering the most respected songcrafters of our lifetime.!! To mention a few, with honor and distinction,“George & Ira Gershwin”, “Cole Porter”, ”Rogers & Hammerstein”, “Irving Berlin” ”Jule Styne”… And with the profound notion that ’Everything Old is New Again’… Might I include some of the original singers and song stylists… As you know, “Tony Bennett”,”Nat King Cole”, “Judy Garland”, ”Ella Fitzgerald”, and of course Ole’ Blue Eyes,”Frank Sinatra”… However, the revision of the ”Songbook” catalogue became once again into full revival in the 1980′s… With many vocalists again showing their respect in personalised versions of the most cherished popular music ever crafted… “Natalie Cole”, noted for “Unforgettable”… Then again in 2001, ”Rod Stewart” tastefully devoted a whole series of albums to the re-introduction of the golden standards…!! Time after time and even right up to our most current songstresses and vocalists… “Michael Buble”, “Harry Connick Jr.” Diana Krall”, and let me not forget to mention, our most dedicated contributor yet… keeping this wonderful chapter in our musical history forever alive, “Michael “Feinstein”…
An evening of class and style…
Swing into the night and enjoy dancing as well…
“Arnie Gruber” is a real favorite,
This show sells out fast…!
