Join us for an upbeat evening of classic tunes you will love. WBZ’s Jordan Rich emcees an outstanding musical evening featuring The Follen Angels, International Cabaret, jazz, and classic pop recording artists. This inspirational night of music also features the delightful a Cappella group, Custom Blend, and the NU Downbeats from Northeastern University, who will help strike a chord to raise awareness of the changing face of lung cancer.
The Follen Angels are uniquely versatile performers. Their repertoire is vast, from their current homage to classical rock music from the ‘60’s and ‘70’s to the American Songbook covering the finest composers, lyricists, and performers of the 20th Century. The Angels have filled concert halls and radio airwaves, and continue to draw enthusiastic audiences from Scullers Jazz Club in Boston, Mechanics Hall in Worchester, the Metropolitan Room and Don’t Tell Mama in New York City, sharing the stage with HBO Comedian, Lewis Black, and sold out shows at Columbia Station in Washington, DC. Their 5 cd recordings have won praises and represent the diversity of this very entertaining group. Their newest CD, “Summertime Six-Pack: Great Tunes of the 50s, 60s and 70s” confirm the fun and toe-tapping abilities of this group. Hildy Grossman, lead vocalist, has a special touch of telling engaging stories and anecdotes that places the musi into the context of the era. Ken Dantzig, drummer and former DJ, adds humor and patter to further involve audiences in the fun. The other members of the group, Shinichi Otsu, keyboard, Milt Reder, Guitar, Ken Dantzig, drums, and Sven Larson, bass are outstanding musicians. See FollenAngels.com for more information.
Custom Blend is an 11-person, mixed voice, community a cappella group based in Acton, MA that has been performing together since 2004. Their repertoire of over 100 songs features an eclectic variety of genres, including nostalgic 40’s war tunes, 50’s doo-wop, memorable hits from the 60’s by the Beach Boys, the Beatles, the Drifters, James Brown, and Crosby, Stills & Nash, and later pop performers such as Billy Joel, U2, Queen, Sting, and Imogen Heap. The group’s specialty is treating audiences to surprising twists on old and new music, including some original arrangements by director Keith Daniel. Custom Blend enjoys a “have pipes, will travel” attitude, bringing their music to venues throughout New England and New York.
The Downbeats are Northeastern’s fun co-ed a cappella group. Their aim is not only to create and perform music, but also to encourage one another to grow as musicians and individuals. The Downbeats are comprised of a diverse community of 16 individuals from all over the world, who each bring unique talents to the table. All music that the Downbeats perform is arranged and coordinated by members within the group.
