Retro Has Never Sounded So Now! At the Bing tomorrow night



Under the Streetlamp is a concert celebration of classic hits of the American radio songbook from the 1950s-1970s featuring tight harmonies and slick dance moves that take audiences back to an era of sharkskin suits, flashy cars and martini shakers. A time when, on hot summer nights, people would gather under a streetlamp to sing.

With irresistible rapport, Under the Streetlamp offers audiences the opportunity to get to know four critically acclaimed stars of stage and screen, Michael Ingersoll, Christopher Kale Jones, Brandon Wardell and Shonn Wiley. While each performer gets his moment in the spotlight, it is their synergy and charisma as a group that has drawn an extremely devoted nationwide following.

The show is at the Bing Crosby theater tomorrow night, January 14 at 8pm. Go to bingcrosbytheater.com for tickets and more information.
