For those of you who tuned in to Wake Up Wisconsin on WAOW and saw Ticket Tuesday, the reveal of the next two shows of the 2015-16 season the following post will be no surprise. For those of you who decided to sleep in we’re excited to present The Midtown Men and Rosanne Cash.
The Midtown Men Wednesday, October 28
“A joyous and nostalgic trip through the music of the 1960s…this high-spirited evening kicked the audience’s adrenaline into overdrive.” The Daily Oklahoman
The Four Stars from the original cast of Broadway’s Jersey Boys bring to life the greatest hits of the Sixties, rocking performing arts centers and symphony halls across the continent. Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, J. Robert Spencer, and Daniel Reichard wowed audiences on Broadway and beyond in their roles in Jersey Boys and now they’ve joined together to bring hits of the Beatles, Motown, The Rascals and more to audiences around the globe.
Since forming The Midtown Men, there has been nothing but incredible success. Their debut album “Sixties Hits” was critically acclaimed and their Christmas single “All Alone on Christmas” jumped to the top of the airplay charts. Nothing compares, however, to seeing these four amazing talents together on stage. The New York Times says, “Sidling up to a microphone, the singers had the air of the Rat Pack, Motown and a nightclub act all rolled into one,” while the New York Daily News proclaims, “The Midtown Men sound as crisp as their Rat Pack-inspired suits. Their voices blend together so flawlessly on stage.”
Rosanne Cash Sunday, May 8
Rosanne Cash and her band wrap up the 2015-16 season at The Grand with a new show that celebrates her latest album, The River & the Thread, winner of three Grammy’s in 2014.
The River & the Thread, is a collection of original songs that connect and re-connect Cash to the American South, the place of her birth and the home of her ancestors. Even after 12 previous Grammy nominations and 21 Top 40 country singles, including 11 Number Ones, Cash has perhaps her finest hour with this critically-acclaimed album, which found its way onto the year-end “Best Of” lists across the globe.
“Cash comes full circle as a storyteller and singer of exceptional grace and grit. It’s among her finest work in a 35-year career, assured and at ease, and one of 2014’s great albums.” The Boston Globe, on Cash’s latest album, The River & the Thread
