Baby Boomers know well the 1960s excitement of watching The Ed Sullivan Show, The Hollywood Palace, The Kraft Music Hour, and a multitude of other variety showcases. Las Vegas-based Orchestral Events has created a dynamic new variety showcase for the Arcada Theatre on, featuring two of your favorite classic rock artists, The Buckinghams and Gary Puckett, going far beyond simply presenting their Billboard million-selling hits. It's not the standard concert format that you're used to, it's nothing like the Happy Together Tour. This evening debuts a special showcase of talent that will make you so glad you were there.
You'll be treated to tremendous new symphonic arrangements, and hear your favorites performed with a full symphony orchestra. Imagine "Kind of a Drag," "Hey Baby, They're Playing Our Song," and more, with strings, horns, and percussion backing your favorite singers and their full bands. Hear "Young Girl," "Woman, Woman," and "This Girl is a Woman Now" like you've never heard them before. But that's not all.
You're invited to join us for a Symphonic/Pops "Time Capsule of the 60s." Your favorite musicians will join together on stage to perform music by The Doors, The Hollies, Tina Turner, the Four Seasons, Joe Cocker, The Fifth Dimension, and Phil Spector's Wall of Sound Artists. The orchestra will be led by Conductor Mariano Longo, who created these beautiful arrangements of songs that are part of the soundtrack of your life, from back in the day.
Meet a beautiful, talented singer, Christie Copeland, whose renditions of the hits of Petula Clark, Bobbie Gentry, Lulu, and Dusty Springfield will also transport you back to a day and time when life was simple, joyful, the way you remember it best.
The evening features two hours of solid entertainment, with intermission, a showcase unlike anything you've seen since, well, the 1960s! Join us for Groovin' The 60s, for Valentines Day at Ron Onesti's historic Arcada Theatre. Tickets start at $49 and are available at https://tix.extremetix.com/
