BARENAKED LADIES Canada 1 Five 0 Ed Robertson : guitar, vocals Jim Creeggan : bass, vocals Kevin Hearn : keyboards, guitar, vocals Tyler Stewart : drums, vocals Gotta see the show, cause then youll know, sings Ed Robertson on Barenaked Ladies chart-topping hit, One Week, a song featured on the bands most recent live album BNL Rocks Red Rocks, recorded at the fabled Morris on, CO, Amphitheater on June 10, 2015 during the bands Last Summer On Earth tour. Thats as good a description as any about seeing these rock icons in concert, an experience filled with the kind of energy, precision, finesse and outright celebration among its fans that is a tribute to Barenaked Ladies remarkable longevity. The band is still together after nearly three decades, producing 14 studio albums which have collectively sold more than 14 million copies, won eight Juno Awards, earned multiple Grammy nominations, a U.S. chart-topping single (One Week) and the theme song to one of TVs most popular shows, The Big Bang Theory. I dont think theres a secret, Robertson explained to People magazine last year when asked how BNL managed to not just survive, but thrive, continuing to sell out venues wherever they go. Its work. Youve got to respect each other, you got to give each other space, but you also have to support each other...This band learned early on to communicate, right from the beginning we didnt want to burn out. We wanted to keep making music.We appreciate what we do more than ever, explains Robertson. Were not looking for external validation. Were enjoying working together and were doing some of the best shows of our entire career.I still love writing songs, insists Robertson. And its such a privilege to work with these guys. They have my back, and I have theirs. Its pretty amazing to watch the crowd light up when we play a song we recorded 25 years ago, and then hear them sing along with something brand-new.Our fans have been on this journey with us, so weve kind of grown up together, says Ed. Its a special relationship, within the band and between our fans. Every band says they have the best fans, but we actually do. And we know that because other bands tell us that.Its not easy to be hyperactive,brooding and whimsical all at once, the New York Times pop critic Jon Pareles once wrote about BNL. But the Barenaked Ladies do just that.Barenaked Ladies have most recently announced a very special collaboration with the legendary Kings of A Cappella The Persuasions, with an album titled, Ladies And Gentlemen: Barenaked Ladies And The Persuasions to be released April 14, 2017. The album features 14 tracks re-imagined BNLs award-winning catalogue and the classic Good Times. BNL recorded the album live off the floor with The Persuasions in the Fall of 2016 in Toronto.

The cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!”, the internationally renowned tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, celebrates the Christmas season with a brand new show that definitely creates “holiday sparkle”.
In the “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Christmas show the cast will warm you up with some of the most popular songs from their fast paced musical tribute to the legendary Frankie Valli and then transform you into a Christmas wonderland with a brand new tribute to “Mr. Christmas” himself – the great ANDY WILLIAMS.
“OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Is an in-depth musical revue, bringing to life thirty of the Four Seasons' hits. It's a captivating tribute to the songbook of this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame super group with note-perfect renditions of the iconic "Jersey boys"! The show features 4 talented performers singing live that “feel good” music you grew up with that made the name Frankie Valli known around the globe.
In the 1960’s and 70’s the ANDY WILLIAMS television show was a staple in households around the world and his annual Christmas shows were some of the most anticipated specials ever made. His “Moon River” Theatre (named after his signature song) was the first non-country music theatre to be opened in Branson Mo., and allowed this iconic performer to remain in front of his loyal fans until shortly before his passing.
The talented cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” easily recreates the legendary sound of “Andy Williams and the Williams Brothers” with such songs as “It’s The Holiday Season”, “Jingle Bells”, “The Christmas Song”, “White Christmas”, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” (which was written specifically for The Andy Williams Show), and of course “Moon River”.
“Everybody loves these songs. The melodies and harmonies are great to sing and the songs are always a special memory for somebody”, says producer George Solomon.
Staying true to the original recordings this tribute to Frankie Valli & Andy Williams honours the talents of two American legends. Don’t miss this incredible musical experience.
