Wednesday, November 16, 7 p.m., The Papas and Mamas

The Mamas and the Papas became a pivotal part of American culture in the 1960s. The very roots of the hippie movement can be directly traced to their artistic influence. Before the Mamas and the Papas, most vocal groups were unisex and all dressed very conservatively. When Cass, John, Denny, and Michelle hit the scene those stereotypes flew out the window. Their unique style and light pop arrangements helped put California on the musical map and the laid-back 1960s west coast lifestyle was born.

A loving tribute to the original rock band, The Papas and Mamas recreate the musical chemistry of one of the few North American groups to maintain widespread success during the British Invasion. With their tight, four-part harmonies and close physical resemblance to the groundbreaking original group, The Papas and Mamas have entertained audiences from California to Spain. Their haunting performance of “California Dreaming” will take you back to the sweet Southern California pop scene of the ‘60s!

A musical journey through the 70s featuring the timeless classics of Billy Joel and Elton John, “The Piano Men” is a celebration of the year-by-year, hit-by-hit songs of Joel and John. Award-winning artist Jim Witter and his incredible band lead an expertly crafted tour of an entire decade that begins with “Your Song” and winds audiences on a musical time machine, saluting two of the Century’s most popular contemporary songwriters.

With spectacular visuals on a giant screen, we return to the newspaper headlines, the automobiles, the people, the events, the toys, and even TV shows that shaped a decade. Along the way, the sounds of “My Life,” “Candle in the Wind,” “Rocket Man,” “Just the Way You Are,” and many more classic hits deliver an evening that’s so much fun you won’t want it to end!
