The Music Box Theater is bringing back the horns once again for its second concert cabaret, “Keep it Brassy 2,” which opens September 8 and plays through October 13. The all-new show builds on the success of last year’s “Keep it Brassy.”
This concert experience features the incredible vocals of The Music Box 5 backed up by house band G Sharp and the MBT 3. And, for this concert, it’s G Sharp and the MBT 3 Plus Three—extra horns to help us “Keep it Brassy 2.” Regulars Glenn Sharp (musical director and keyboard), Mark McCain (guitar), Long Le (bass) and James Metcalfe (percussion) will be joined by Mike Adamcik (reed instruments), Louis Sanchez (trombone) and Vaughan Pederson (trumpet).
Featuring a wide range of musical genres, the show will include these songs sung by the following artists: “Dream a Little Dream” (Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong), “Hallelujah, I Love Her So” (Ray Charles), “Rehab” (Amy Winehouse), “Beginnings” (Chicago) and “Tell Her About It” (Billy Joel). Songs will be interspersed with the usual Music Box shenanigans to help ensure that audiences have fun at the coolest club in town.
Performances for shows are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays throughout the run. There also will be Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. on September 23 and October 7. Tickets for each show are $39 for reserved seating and $29 for general admission and are available online at www.themusicboxtheater.com or by calling (713) 522-7722. [Organizer's description]
