Yankee Bush presents
If you missed them in 2011, catch them in 2013 at the Struthers Library Theatre in Warren. Come experience “A Tribute to Hall-of-Famers, The Eagles,” by Seven Bridges, on Saturday, April 20, at 8 p.m. sponsored by Crescent Beer. Seven Bridges: The Ultimate Eagles Experience is a stunningly accurate tribute to Southern Californians most famous musical group, The Eagles. Comprised of six talented musicians, each bringing his own style and flair to the group, SevenBridges is intent on delivering a near replica of a live Eagles performance that is so precise, so intense, so unbelievable, as to be mistaken for the masters themselves. A Seven Bridges show runs the gamut from the Eagles’ greatest hits, “Take It Easy,” “Desperado,” “Hotel California,” to deep album cuts, “Ol’ 55,” “Those Shoes,” and even Don Henley and Joe Walsh/James Gang solo material, “Heart of the Matter,” “Dirty Laundry,” “Walk Away” and more. Presenting a performance that is a raucous, rock & roll show one minute and an intimate acoustic show the next, a Seven Bridges show is suitable for music lovers of all ages so bring the whole family.
Yankee Bush Productions’ first show of their fall season will be Saturday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m., “A Tribute to Diva-Superstar, Ms. Bette Midler,” by Kathy Thompson of Toronto, Canada, at the Crown Theatre, 21 E. Third Street, Jamestown, N.Y. Kathy Thompson has delighted in portraying Bette Midler since her start in Las Vegas in 1995. “Thompson presents an excellent physical and vocal portrayal of the superstar. But she actually goes beyond mere mimicry. Her turn is so energetic and entertaining that she transcends simple impersonation. The performance stands as a great piece of work in its own right.” Whoot Magazine, Atlantic City. Kathy Thompson will dazzle you as everyone’s favorite Diva-Superstar, the Divine Miss M, featuring “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Wind Beneath My Wings,” “Stuff Like That There,” “I’m Beautiful,” “The Rose,” “You Don’t Own Me,” “Under the Boardwalk” . . . and an acute, outrageous sense of humor.
