With country hits like "Ring on Her Finger, Time on Her Hands" and "I.O.U.," Greenwood is most recognized for the world famous anthem "God Bless the U.S.A."
The Spinners were the greatest soul group of the '70's, recording a number of sould classics including "I'll Be Around," "Could It Be I'm Fallin in Love," "Mighty Love," "Ghetto Child," "Then Came You," "Games People Play," and "The Rubberband Man."
A fully integrated, scripted and directed show, Our Sinatra celebrates the songs and music made famous by Frank Sinatra.
As Stephen Holden wrote in The New York Times of their Off-Broadway success, “Our Sinatra is not a contemplation of the legend and the ego that built that legend, but a celebration of what really matters about Sinatra: the music.”
Not an impersonation of the legendary singer, the show is a tribute to Sinatra’s music. The show will feature three rising stars from Broadway, backed by an eleven-piece big band, and will include over sixty songs recorded by Sinatra – “New York, New York,” “Come Fly With Me,” “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “Fly Me To The Moon,” “Strangers in the Night,” “All The Way,” “One For My Baby,” “Night and Day,” and many more.
CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD & BAND OF OZ
CHAIRMEN OF THE BOARD, pioneers of the Beach Music movement in the Carolinas, will perform shag favorites like “Give Me Just a Little More Time,” “You’ve Got Me Dangling on a String,” “Everything’s Tuesday” and “Feelin’ Alright.”
BAND OF OZ garnered their first hit “Shaggin’” in 1978, followed by “Ocean Boulevard” several years later. Their most successful hit, though, came with the release of “Shama Lama Ding Dong.”
