This performance includes live music on the Mighty Wurlitzer before the show!
The Vaughn Monroe Orchestra transports the audience to October 1949, just after World War II. Under the direction of Dan Gabel, the orchestra performs Monroe's hits with featured vocalist Elise Roth, the Moon Maids vocal group, dancers and other entertainers. Audiences will hear songs such as “Racing with the Moon,” "There, I've Said It Again,” "Ballerina,” "Let it Snow" and "Ghost Riders in the Sky” through special arrangement with the Monroe family and New England Conservatory. For the first time since 1953, original band member and legendary guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli joins the outfit in a truly spectacular event.
For more than seven decades, the legendary Bucky Pizzarelli has had a stellar career. The legendary guitarist got his start at age 17 playing with Vaughn Monroe. As “the complete jazz musician,” he has been a fixture in jazz and the studios since the 1940s. One of the era’s most solid rhythm players, Pizzarelli was in high demand, playing and touring with Benny Goodman, Zoot Sims, Bud Freeman, Stephane Grappelli, The Tonight Show Band and Frank Sinatra. At the age of 91, he still tours and performs all over the world.
Tickets for The Vaughn Monroe Show with special guest Bucky Pizzarelli are $25, $35 and $40 depending on seat location. Discounts are available for members and groups of 10 or more. Please contact the box office at 877.571.SHOW (7469) for more information.
