The Wellington Street Theatre
'The Bobby Show'
written and performed by
Michael K. Myers
Saturday, May 22 at 8pm. Doors open 7:30
This show is a tribute to the great 'Bobby' singers of the late 50's, and early 60's. You'll hear songs originally recorded by Bobby Darin, Bobby Vee, Bobby Vinton, Bobby Curtola, and other Bobby's from that perhaps more innocent era of pop music, and stories behind those singers, and their songs. The songs include Rockin' Robin, My Special Angel, The Night Has A Thousand Eyes, Fortune Teller, Blue Velvet, Honey, Dream Lover, Mack The Knife, and many more. The Bobby Show is sung and performed by Michael K. Myers, with his band 'The Real Gone Cats'.
Michael Myers, the creator of the show says " I thought it would be fun to put together a music revue featuring just songs by, and stories about, the various Bobby singers who come from an overlooked, and often critically looked down upon period in popular music -the late 50's, through to the early 60's, prior to the British Invasion, and the arrival of The Beatles. I think some exciting, well crafted, and memorable music was produced then, by talented singers, and songwriters, including the Bobby's, and it definitely had, and still has, a big influence on my performing, and songwriting career."
Seniors and Students $15.00
