2016 Outstanding Historic Theatre

LHAT’s Awards Program inspires excellence by recognizing theatres and individuals for their significant accomplishments or distinguished service. The Outstanding Historic Theatre Award recognizes a theatre that demonstrates excellence through its community impact, quality of programs and services, and quality of the restoration or rehabilitation of its historic structure. An award-winning theatre will have demonstrated excellence through significant achievement, the impact of its services and breadth of populations served, and the length of time and/or intensity of its activities. Each year, one theatre and one individual are honored by LHAT at its annual conference. Former winners include the Fabulous Fox in Atlanta, New York City Center and Playhouse Square in Cleveland.


JAMES M. PORFIDO ATTORNEY AT LAW, LLC Dedication and Diligence

James M. Porfido is a Certified Criminal Attorney who has devoted the last two decades of his career to criminal defense and representing those faced with serious criminal charges including, but not limited to, homicides, sexual assaults, drug-related charges, domestic violence, burglary, juvenile crimes and driving offenses, such as driving while intoxicated. Outcomes are critical to the people Porfido represents, as they often face significant consequences. “I provide clients with a very thorough understanding of their situation at the outset of their case and I provide them with the best possible services and defense,” says Porfido. Porfido, who was previously a Chief Assistant Prosecutor in Morris County, says seeing the case from both sides of the table distinguishes him from peers. “Knowing the State’s case and evidence that will be used against my clients is critical to providing the est denfese,” he says. Porfido has been named to the Super Lawyers list for the ninth consecutive year in the area of criminal law. Outside the courtroom, Porfido continues to be involved with multiple charitable organizations and nonprofits in the communities he serves. 23 Cattano Ave. at Chancery Square | Morristown, NJ 07960 | PH: (973) 683-1140 | porfidolaw.com

A welcome from our President It is our delight to be able to bring the world’s greatest entertainers so close to home! This year is no exception. The 2016-2017 season is a mix of returning favorites and exciting new events. By the time this season concludes, over 200 events will have been held on our stage, from world renowned performers such as Tony Bennett and Kristin Chenoweth, to touring Broadway shows like Once and Annie, to New Jerseybased organizations including New Jersey Ballet and New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, to the hundreds of children who participate in our afterschool performing arts program. I was thrilled to travel to Chicago recently to receive the League of Historic American Theatre’s 2016 Outstanding Historic Theatre award. It was an honor for me to accept this national award on behalf of our entire community. For nearly 80 years, MPAC has been instrumental in stimulating Morristown’s economy, building our downtown and nurturing creativity through the arts and entertainment. As a non-profit performing arts venue, we simply would not be here today without the extraordinary commitment from our community members. We sincerely appreciate your patronage. Looking ahead, we are pleased to present even more community-based initiatives this year, which started over the summer with our free summer movie series and lunchtime concert series Music Beyond Borders, and continues with our pre-show local emerging artist performances on the plaza. Our education and outreach efforts remain central to our mission. This past year, over 40,000 children were touched by MPAC events, many exposed to the arts for the first time; including students who participated in our “PAS on the Road” program in distressed school districts such as Paterson. We continue to partner with local school districts, daycare centers, hospitals and social service organizations to ensure the arts are accessible to all children and adults in our neighborhoods. This year we begin an exciting journey with The Miracle Project, an expressive arts program for individuals with autism and other disabilities. This is one of the most anticipated initiatives we will launch this season as we continue to strive to make performing arts experiences welcoming to all individuals including those with special needs. Our Education Department will be working with The Miracle Project to undergo training to better serve these children and engage them in theatre arts. We continue to make strides to improve parking options and customer service. Everyone at MPAC is dedicated to serving our community and creating a welcoming atmosphere at which you, your family and friends can come enjoy world class entertainment. We look forward to seeing you here often this season!

A welcome from our Board Chairman On behalf of the Board of Trustees at MPAC, I welcome you to the theatre! We hope that you will enjoy the many wonderful performances that will take our stage this season. We are thrilled to bring the finest performers in the world to Morristown. I always enjoy show nights because you can see just how much of a buzz an event at MPAC creates. The sidewalks are full of people and the restaurants are teeming with guests – it brings an energy to town that only the anticipation of seeing a live act can deliver. Over the years, we have continuously worked to improve our building – preserving its historical integrity while adding the amenities that today’s audiences require. We thank you for your continued support over the years to help make these improvements possible. As a non-profit organization, ticket sales do not cover the complete costs of all of our programs. MPAC presents a number of education and outreach initiatives in the community, and our fundraising efforts help to cover the costs of these programs. We are committed to making the arts available to people of all means, whether it is a concert in our building, an afternoon theatre class in a disadvantaged community or a free concert at the Morristown Green. If you are not a member, we hope you will consider supporting our mission and assisting us to make arts experiences available to all. MPAC’s economic impact on the region is over $15 million, based on the Americans for the Arts Economic Prosperity calculator. With over 200 events on our stage annually, and numerous free programs and education programs that touch the lives of thousands of children, the return to the community is much more than what can just be calculated in dollars. Enjoy tonight’s performance and thank you for making MPAC the leading performing arts center in the region.

Joseph M. Goryeb Chairman, Board of Trustees

The Mavericks “The world has too much strife, racial and social divides being fed 24/7; it’s non-stop. It turns normal, loving people into brainwashed zombies who can’t come together. Maybe it’s the hopeless romantic in me, but I’d like to make a place where all people can come together.” - Raul Malo It sounds like lofty “hippie speak,” something the GRAMMY winner jokes about, but Malo, the son of Cuban immigrants, and his band believe in bringing people together – often in the name of good times and great music – the most universal language of all. “One of the things we love about our shows is we get all walks of life, all ages, all colors, all politics, all genders, all religions,” frontman Malo states. From their earliest shows as a garage band playing the punk clubs on Miami Beach, The Mavericks have had a skill for getting people to groove. Drawing on a mix of classic country, cow-punk and standards, Malo and company left South Florida, bringing their rhythmic fervor and Latin machismo, along with Malo’s lush baritone, to the world. In 2013, after numerous years as a band, multiple Gold and Platinum albums, world tours, breakups and reformations, The Mavericks recorded their critically-acclaimed album IN TIME and re-introduced music lovers to the band’s genre-defying melting pot of pop music. With the new release of MONO, The Mavericks find themselves making the most relevant music of their career. “The experience of making this record was quite unique. We had the luxury of a very finely tuned band and the energy from the last two years of touring under our belts. MONO best represents what our band does live,” expresses guitarist Eddie Perez. While in the studio to record the new album, the band realized that their songs required a different approach. They felt drawn toward the idea of creating an album that shines through its songwriting and instrumentation in a singular mindset without relying on stereo tricks of modern recording – so the idea of recording in mono was born.

"During the recording process we would go into the studio around noon and listen to vinyl records for some extra inspiration. At some point, someone noted that almost all of the recordings we were listening to were mixed in mono. Our producer Niko Bolas said, off-the-cuff, ‘we should mix this record in mono.’ And we thought, we can’t get away with that – so of course … we had to.” Longtime keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden adds, “Most of these songs were recorded live in the studio with very little overdubbing. Some people might even be surprised to know that the tracking vocal is the vocal you hear on the record. Raul didn’t go back in and re-sing anything.” With MONO, the band embraces cultural and musical diversity.Malo’s songwriting builds on the compositional craftsmanship of earlytwentieth-century musical elegance yet demonstrates his skill for writing music that is progressive and timeless. From the thrusting opener “All Night Long” to the pensively sheer “Fascinate Me” and the chaotic thrill of “(Waiting for) The World To End,” the band seamlessly shifts gears. Elements of ska play a prominent role in songs like “Summertime (When I’m With You)” and one of the most rockin’ tracks, “What You Do To Me,” which Perez believes “has all the energy and style that best represents what it’s like to be at a Mavericks show. It’s a stylish frenzy of electricity and relentless backbeat. This is one of my favorites on the record.” The seductive swing of “Stories We Could Tell,” the vintage country shuffle of “Out The Door” or the randy blues of “The Only Question Is,” show the band’s instinctive affinity to a variety of musical styles. “What Am I Supposed To Do” echoes the soulful sounds of The Four Tops or The Spinners while “Pardon Me” and “Let It Rain (On Me)” mine the desolation of road life and stand as MONO’s most somber tracks. McFadden explains, “‘Let It Rain (On Me)’ is my idea of a perfect song. It’s hard to write a very simple, catchy song, but Raul has always had a knack for that. It’s why recording the album in mono actually works. Only a great song can stand tall in a single channel mix, not dressed up with all kinds of bells and


The Mavericks whistles that a stereo mix would have. It’s really why this record works in mono so well. Not many acts could pull that off. Not many would even try, is my guess.” “When we went in to record this record, we were very resolved: we’d been through the time on the road, making the last album, living together as friends and as a band...We have nothing to lose, and only the music to gain,” says Malo.

Michael Feinstein Michael Feinstein has built a dazzling career over the last three decades bringing the music of the Great American songbook to the world. From recordings that have earned him five Grammy Award nominations to his Emmy nominated PBS-TV specials, his acclaimed NPR series and concerts spanning the globe – in addition to his appearances at iconic venues such as The White House, Buckingham Palace, Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House – his work as an educator and archivist define Feinstein as one of the most important musical forces of our time.

The PBS series “Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook,” the recipient of the ASCAP Deems-Taylor Television Broadcast Award, was broadcast for three seasons and is available on DVD. His most recent primetime PBS-TV Special, “New Year’s Eve at The Rainbow Room” – written and directed by “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry – aired in 2014. For his nationally syndicated public radio program “Song Travels,” Michael interviews and performs alongside of music luminaries such as Bette Midler, Neil Sedaka, Liza Minnelli, Rickie Lee Jones, David Hyde Pierce and more.

In 2007, he founded the Great American Songbook Foundation, dedicated to celebrating the art form and preserving it through educational programs, Master Classes, and the annual High School Songbook Academy. This summer intensive open to students from across the country has produced graduates who have gone on to record acclaimed albums and appear on television programs such as NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Michael serves on the Library of Congress’ National Recording Preservation Board, an organization dedicated to ensuring the survival, conservation and increased public availability of America’s sound recording heritage.

Feinstein was named Principal Pops Conductor for the Pasadena Symphony in 2012 and made his conducting debut in June 2013 to celebrated critical acclaim. Under Feinstein’s leadership, the Pasadena Pops has quickly become a premier orchestral presenter of the Great American Songbook with definitive performances of rare orchestrations and classic arrangements. He launched an additional Pops series at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in Palm Beach, Florida in 2014.

The most recent album from his multiplatinum recording career is A Michael Feinstein Christmas from Concord Records. The CD features Grammy Award -winning jazz pianist Alan Broadbent (Paul McCartney, Diana Krall, Natalie Cole). Feinstein earned his fifth Grammy Award nomination in 2009 for The Sinatra Project, his CD celebrating the music of “Ol’ Blue Eyes.” The Sinatra Project, Volume II: The Good Life was released in 2011. He released the CDs The Power Of Two – collaborating with “Glee” and “30 Rock” star Cheyenne Jackson – and Cheek To Cheek, recorded with Broadway legend Barbara Cook. For Feinstein’s CD We Dreamed These Days, he co-wrote the title song with Dr. Maya Angelou. His Emmy Award-nominated TV special Michael Feinstein – The Sinatra Legacy, which was taped live at the Palladium in Carmel, IN, aired across the country in 2011.

Michael’s book "The Gershwins and Me " – the Los Angeles Times best-seller from Simon & Schuster – features a new CD of Gershwin standards performed with Cyrus Chestnut at the piano. Feinstein serves as Artistic Director of the Palladium Center for the Performing Arts, a $170 million, three-theatre venue in Carmel, Indiana, which opened in January 2011. The theater is home to diverse live programming and a museum for his rare memorabilia and manuscripts. Since 1999, he has served as Artistic Director for Carnegie Hall’s “Standard Time with Michael Feinstein” in conjunction with ASCAP. In 2010 he became the director of the Jazz and Popular Song Series at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center. Feinstein’s at the Nikko, Michael’s nightclub at San Francisco’s Nikko Hotel, has presented the top talents of pop and jazz since 2013. He will debut at Feinstein’s/54 Below, his new club in New York, later in 2015. His first venue in New York, Feinstein’s at the Regency, featured major entertainers such as Rosemary Clooney, Glen Campbell, Barbara


Michael Feinstein Cook, Diahann Carroll, Jane Krakowski, Lea Michele, Cyndi Lauper, Jason Mraz and Alan Cumming from 1999 to 2012. He has designed a new piano for Steinway called “The First Ladies,” inspired by the White House piano and signed by several former First Ladies. It was first played to commemorate the Ronald Regan centennial on February 6, 2011. In 2013 Michael released Change Of Heart: The Songs of Andre Previn in collaboration with four time Oscar and eleven time Grammy Award-winning composerconductor-pianist Andre Previn. The album celebrates Previn’s pop songs and motion picture classics. Earlier album highlights include Hopeless Romantics, a songbook of classics by Michael’s late friend Harry Warren, recording with legendary jazz pianist George Shearing. His album with songwriting icon Jimmy Webb, Only One Life – The Songs of Jimmy Webb, was named one of “10 Best CDs of the Year” by USA Today. Feinstein received his fourth Grammy nomination for Michael Feinstein with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, his first recording with a symphony orchestra. The year before, Rhino/ Elektra Music released The Michael Feinstein Anthology, a two-disc compilation spanning 1987 to 1996 and featuring old favorites and previously-unreleased tracks.

Michael was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, where he started playing piano by ear as a 5-year-old. After graduating from high school, he moved to Los Angeles when he was 20. The widow of legendary concert pianist-actor Oscar Levant introduced him to Ira Gershwin in July 1977. Feinstein became Gershwin’s assistant for six years, which earned him access to numerous unpublished Gershwin songs, many of which he has since performed and recorded. Gershwin’s influence provided a solid base upon which Feinstein evolved into a captivating performer, composer and arranger of his own original music. He also has become an unparalleled interpreter of music legends such as Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Johnny Mercer, Duke Ellington and Harry Warren. Feinstein has received three honorary doctorates. Through his live performances, recordings, film and television appearances, and his songwriting (in collaboration with Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Lindy Robbins, Bob Merrill and Amanda Green), Feinstein is an all-star force in American music.

Who's Bad Who’s Bad’s live performance is an unrivaled celebration of pop music’s one true King. Their power-packed performance of Michael Jackson’s expansive catalog has ignited crowds on every continent and can only be described as a jaw-dropping, musical mustsee. As the longest-running Michael Jackson tribute band, and the only one to predate his untimely passing, Who’s Bad has awed even the skeptics, selling out nearly 50 venues in the United Kingdom including London’s O2 in December of 2010, the venue where the King of Pop was slated to end his career with a 50-show “This Is It” concert series. Beyond this unparalleled achievement, Who’s Bad has checked some of the world’s most famous pavilions off their ‘to-do’ list, selling out their first tour of China with stops at Ningbo’s Grand Theatre and Hunan Grand Theatre in Chengsha. Never neglecting Michael’s U.S. fans, Who’s Bad has packed The House of Blues in Houston, Dallas, and New Orleans; rocked DC’s 930 Club and returned to their native Chapel Hill, NC boasting larger, more eagerly-awaited performances with every romp around the globe. Sold-out shows from Colorado’s Bluebird Theatre and LA’s Gibson Amphitheatre and Romania’s Sala Palatalui to Teatro do Bourbon Country (Porto Alegre, Brazil) tell the story: no corner of the earth is safe from this infectious party production. Who’s Bad has earned its name by paying studious attention to Michael Jackson’s every original groove and gravity-defying dance move, boasting over 100 years of professional experience and a team of dancers with resumes that include Broadway productions such as Phantom of the Opera. Vamsi Tadepalli (Who’s Bad founder, composer, and saxophonist) assembled a cast of North Carolina’s premiere musicians and, from Who’s Bad’s inception, believed in the band’s boundless possibilities. The velvety vocals and pinpoint choreography of frontmen Joseph Bell and Taalib York’s combined with the sixpiece band’s synchronized dance routines, blaring horns and down-deep rhythms, results in a performance delivered with soul and precision superseded by no one but the King himself. They’ve shared stages

with the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, The Backstreet Boys, The Four Tops, Boys II Men, and hip hop superstar, Pitbull. Captivated fans include LIVENATION’s Anthony Nicolaidis who calls Who’s Bad, “the real deal,” and Michael Jackson’s longtime friend and manager Frank DiLeo who proclaimed after Who’s Bad show in Nashville, TN, “the show was great….Michael would have been proud!” Whether you idolized the Jackson 5, fell in love to Human Nature, or learned to moonwalk to Billie Jean, Who’s Bad is THE ULTIMATE music-and-dance driven Michael Jackson homage. This band of professionals relentlessly elevate the legacy of pop music’s King, always pushing themselves to be more precise, to raise the level of excitement and awe, while embodying Michael Jackson’s mission to bring people together of all races, genders, and cultures through music. As the curtain opens on a Who’s Bad performance, every MJ fan feels the adrenaline, screams at the sight of that unmistakable silhouette, and succumbs to a surefire Michael Jackson sing-along. The energy is purely magnetic, the musicianship is first-rate, the dance moves deftly inspired. Who’s Bad is a tribute befitting a King and their high-octane execution of MJ’s music and dance has catapulted them to the exclusive rank of Ultimate!

Robert Klein and Rita Rudner RITA RUDNER Rita Rudner moved to New York at the age of fifteen to dance on Broadway. She appeared in several Broadway musicals, including the legendary original productions of “Follies” and “Mack and Mabel.” It was while she was appearing in “Annie” on Broadway that Rita began exploring the comedy clubs of Manhattan. She applied the same learning techniques she had acquired as a dancer to comedy, spending hours studying recordings by Jack Benny and Woody Allen and analyzing comedy construction. She developed her trademark epigrammatic style and took a full-time leap form chorus lines to punch lines in the early eighties. A frequent guest on both Late Night With Letterman and The Tonight Show during this time, Rita also appeared often on HBO. Her first solo HBO special, “Rita Rudner’s One Night Stand,” was nominated for several awards, as was her English BBC television show which later appeared on A&E. Rita’s two one-hour specials for HBO, “Born to Be Mild” and “Married Without Children,” were ratings standouts and many viewers liked her dresses. She performed all over the country, filling Carnegie Hall in New York three times and the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles twice. She also performed sell-out tours of Australia and England. Rita has written five books, including two fiction novels (“Tickled Pink” and “Turning the Tables’). Her other books include the best-selling “Naked Beneath My Clothes,” “I Still Have It…I Just Can’t Remember Where I Put It” and “Rita Rudner’s Guide to Men,” which continues to be quoted extensively on the internet in English and in languages she will never understand. In 1984 Rita met Martin Bergman, an English producer and writer. The two have since collaborated professionally as well as personally. They married in 1989. The movie “Peter’s Friends” was their first produced script. It also starred Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Imelda Staunton and Kenneth Branagh and won the Peter Seller’s award for best comedy film and

best ensemble acting. In America, it was nominated for Best Original Script by the Writers’ Guild. “A Weekend in the Country” was another script the couple created together and it was also Martin’s directorial debut. It starred Jack Lemmon, Dudley Moore, Rita and Richard Lewis. The couple collaborated again on a short TV movie called “Unfunny Girl” and then on the award-winning independent movie “Thanks” which premiered at the Palm Springs Film Festival in 2011. In 2000 Rita and Martin got a call from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. They had a six week window in a theatre before a show was arriving from Paris. Would Rita like to fill those six weeks with Martin producing? Six weeks turned into six months. Rita’s show became the hottest ticket in town. When the show from France finally arrived, MGM management built Rita her own 450 seat theatre at its sister property New York New York. In 2006, Rita moved to an even bigger theatre at Harrah’s to which she returned in 2014 after a three year run at The Venetian. She is now officially the longest-running solo comedy show in the history of Las Vegas. In 2003, Rita launched from Las Vegas her first syndicated daily TV show Ask Rita, in key markets across the country. The show featured a panel of celebrities lightheartedly attempting to solve personal problems submitted by members of the public. For this show, Women In Television and Radio awarded Rita their Top Program Host award. Rita also found time to help write the 2001 & 2003 Oscar’s with Steve Martin. Rita was thrilled to perform for President Obama in Las Vegas alongside Bette Midler and Sheryl Crow, and even more thrilled to introduce her daughter Molly to the President and Senator Harry Reid. Recently, Rita recorded her first stand up TV special for over a decade. “Rita Rudner: Live From Las Vegas” for PBS in conjunction with a DVD release thru’ Image Entertainment, as well as a radio series for the BBC. She and Martin have also written a couple of successful plays and will be collaborating


Robert Klein and Rita Rudner again on a new work which will premiere in January 2016 at the Laguna Playhouse in California. Her first love, however, remains stand up comedy and she still performs all over the country whenever her Las Vegas schedule allows it.

Klein has also appeared in many notable films including, “Hooper,” “The Owl and the Pussycat,” “Primary Colors,” “People I Know,” “Two Weeks Notice,” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” and “The Back-Up Plan” with Jennifer Lopez.

ROBERT KLEIN

“The Amorous Busboy of Decatur Avenue,” his first book for Simon & Schuster, is an affectionate coming-of-age memoir about growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s before embarking on a show business career. In it he recounts his journey from an apartment in the Bronx, developing his talent in Chicago and the beginning of his show business stardom. The book is pure Robert Klein: witty, honest, self-questioning and always contagiously funny. Publishers Weekly wrote: "...he unfurls an array of captivating anecdotes, writing with wry wit and honesty."

He has gone on to do nine one-man shows for HBO and received his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music and Lyrics in 2001 for Robert Klein: “Child in His 50’s.” Klein released “Robert Klein: The HBO Specials 1975- 2005,” a collector’s DVD box set to critical acclaim. His most recent special for HBO, “Robert Klein: Unfair and Unbalanced” aired on June 12th, 2010 and is also available as a DVD. This special earned him a second Emmy nomination in 2011 for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics. Among dozens of starring and gueststarring roles on television, he co-starred in the hit NBC series, “Sisters,” has a recurring guest-starring role on “Law and Order” and has recently guest starred on “The Good Wife” and “Royal Pains.” He regularly appears on talk shows, making more than 100 appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Late Show with David Letterman” alone.

Since signing to Parlophone Records in1985, they have achieved 42 Top 30 singles in the UK including 22 Top 10 hits and four number ones. They have released 12 studio albums all of which have made the UK Top 10 as well as album charts around the world. In 2000 they received the Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music and at the 2009 BRIT Awards they were presented with the award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. As writers, producers and remixers, Tennant and Lowe have collaborated, remixed or written for a wide range of artists including Dusty Springfield, Lady Gaga, Liza Minnelli, Madonna, David Bowie, Yoko Ono, The Killers and Girls Aloud. Pet Shop Boys have also written the West End musical Closer to Heaven with playwright Jonathan Harvey, produced in 2001 by the Really Useful Group. In 2004 they performed their soundtrack to the classic silent film, Battleship Potemkin, with the Dresden Sinfoniker in a free concert in Trafalgar Square presented by the ICA; they have since performed it at various spectacular outdoor events in Germany, Spain and the UK. In 2011, Pet Shop Boys composed a ballet, The Most Incredible Thing, based on the Hans Christian Anderson story of the same title. The project was a collaboration with choreographer Javier De Frutos and Britain’s leading dance theatre, Sadler’s Wells. The ballet won the Evening Standard Theatre Award and was given a second season at Sadler’s Wells the following year.

In 2012 Pet Shop Boys appeared before a worldwide television audience during the London Olympics’ closing ceremony.

Chris Isaak First Comes the Night Tour For Chris Isaak, first comes the song. And for First Comes The Night -- Isaak’s stunning first album of new material in six years -- this gifted singer-songwriter is bringing a bumper crop of strong and intriguing songs. “There was no mission for this album other than to follow the songs,” Isaak explains, and in terms of songwriting, the floodgates really opened. “My last release was Beyond The Sun -- my tribute to Sun Records with a lot of covers -- so this time around I had a lot of new material. My manager always tells me, `We need more songs.’ This time, even she realized she’s creating a songwriting monster, and had to beg me to stop.” First Comes The Night represents many firsts for Isaak, who recently signed on to become a judge for the first time on The X Factor Australia. This is the first time that Isaak has written and recorded so much in Nashville, Tennessee, a change in location he explored partly upon the suggestion of his friend Stevie Nicks. ”Somehow even I had some misconceptions about Nashville,” confesses Isaak. “You’d think a music guy who’s been in the business as long as I have would known better. I somehow forgot Nashville is --- and always been -- about more than just country.” In Nashville, Isaak worked with a number of new producers who helped show him how exciting a place to make music Nashville could be. “I had the misconception that a producer in Nashville would be bringing in banjos and asking me what songs I had that were pure country. The truth is that great producers are great producers, and Nashville is so full of brilliantly talented people.” Similarly, in the Nashville tradition, Isaak also did more co-writing than usual, including working with some of the town’s talented songwriters. Before long, Isaak fell in love with the tremendous musical energy of Nashville. “It’s Music City – not just country city,” Isaak says. “You realize how many great records Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers made there too. Great Rock & Roll came out of Nashville and great Soul music too. In Nashville, people are still excited to be playing and making records, as they should be. Literally, my cab driver was a drummer. The guy who sold me a shirt at Macy’s was a singer-songwriter. The guy at the health food store was a bass player. And I went to

breakfast one morning, and saw Robert Plant. Everywhere you look is another potential bandmate.” Yet for all this exciting collaboration, First Comes The Night is very much a great Chris Isaak album that features him at his best. For all the firsts, there’s a strong through-line that continues from Isaak’s earlier triumphs like Silvertone (1985), Chris Isaak (1986), Heart Shaped World (1989), San Francisco Days (1993), Forever Blue (1995) and Always Got Tonight (2002). For Isaak, continuing to write and record is one of his best and least twisted ideas. “People who love music still get excited for a great new song or a performance that connects,” he explains. “Making this album wasn’t a contractual obligation – it was a thrill and a privilege to be making music with so many great people. I know the business is tough and some people say it’s not a time to make records now, but I’m hooked. I love music so much. I don’t think, “I’m going to sell 40 million records.” I think, “How I’m going to make a hell of a record even if it’s for 40 people who just listen to it a million times. I think about it this way -- I’ve worked my whole life and never missed a gig in 30 something years. I want to do this, and for me, the thrill is not gone.” In part because of The X Factor Australia, he finds himself thinking back to his path to stardom and the musicians who made that journey more meaningful. “When you’re 20, you just want to be in a band to make it,” says Isaak. “All these years later, I’ve never missed a tour or a date. And only now in the past ten years, I’ve realized the real prize isn’t how much money you make or the gold records. The real prize is the people you work with. That sounds like a Hallmark Card, and that might sound crazy to a 20 year old who just wants to get famous, but it ends up being true. I’ve always gone out on the road with people who I love and respect as musicians and as people. I don’t want to be onstage with anyone who I don’t like. I’m not that good an actor, and I have the movies to prove it. I feel lucky to play with my band. You’d think we’d be blasé by now, but the guys are excited to have a new record. We love playing together and we’re still trying to get it right.”

Tony Bennett Tony Bennett's life and philosophy is the embodiment of the Great American Story. His career as the pre-eminent singer of the 20th and 21st centuries is unprecedented. He continues to be embraced and loved by audiences of all generations. Through his dedication to excellence and his insistence on quality, he has become the keeper of the flame by extolling the virtues and values represented by the Great American Songbook. He has performed for eleven U.S. Presidents, is a World War II veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge and participated in the liberation of a concentration camp, and marched side by side with Dr. Martin Luther King in Selma to support civil rights. Tony Bennett has been a dedicated pacifist and proactive humanitarian supporting many causes whose goals benefit millions. His love for his country has earned him the distinction of national treasure and United Nations has named him a Citizen of the World. Through his music, Tony Bennett has connected in unprecedented fashion with all generations of audiences. He has fought for the hard issues when others have turned a blind eye and has remained true to the authenticity and creativity of his musical vision. Tony has achieved the Great American Dream but has never forgotten his own roots and is constantly working toward ensuring that others can achieve their dreams as well. His life story is compelling in the lessons and values that it teaches: dedication, commitment, courage, and compassion. No one in popular American music has recorded for so long and at such a high level of excellence than Tony Bennett. In the last ten years alone he has sold ten million records. The essence of his longevity and high artistic achievement was imbued in him in his loving childhood home in the Astoria section of Queens where he was born on August 3, 1926. His father died when Tony was 10 and his mother, Anna, raised Tony and his older brother and sister, John and Mary, in a home surrounded by loving relatives who were Tony’s first fans filling him with encouragement and optimism. He attended the High School of Industrial Arts in Manhattan, where he continued nurturing his two passions, singing and painting. From the

radio he developed a love of music hearing Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, and James Durante. As a teen, Tony sang while waiting on tables and then enlisted in the Army during World War II. He later had vocal studies at the American Theatre Wing School. The first time Bennett sang in a nightclub was in 1946. Bennett’s big break came in 1949 when comedian Bob Hope noticed him working with Pearl Bailey in Greenwich Village in New York City. As Bennett recalls, “Bob Hope came down to check out my act. He liked my singing so much that after the show he came back to see me in my dressing room and said, 'Come on kid, you’re going to come to the Paramount and sing with me.' But first he told me he didn’t care for my stage name (Joe Bari) and asked me what my real name was. I told him, ‘My name is Anthony Dominick Benedetto’ and he said, ‘We’ll call you Tony Bennett.’ And that’s how it happened. A new Americanized name -- the start of a wonderful career and a glorious adventure that has continued for over 60 years.” Bennett has received 19 Grammy Awards -- including a 1995 Grammy for Record of the Year for his “MTV Unplugged” CD which introduced this American master to a whole new generation -- and the Grammy Lifetime Award. His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950’s, including such chart-toppers as “Because of You," "Rags to Riches," and a remake of Hank Williams “Cold, Cold Heart.” He had 24 songs in the Top 40, including “his signature song,” I Left My Heart In San Francisco,” which garnered him two Grammy Awards. Tony Bennett is one of a handful of artists to have new albums charting in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and now in the first two decades of the 21st century. Since his 1991 show-stopping performance at the Grammy Awards of “When Do The Bells Ring For Me," from his Astoria album, he has received a string of Grammy Awards for releases including Stepping Out, Perfectly Frank and MTV Unplugged. In the new millennium, Bennett’s artistry and popularity was higher than ever. In 2006, the year of his 80th birthday, his Duets: An American Classic was released. The album—


Tony Bennett which included performances with Paul McCartney, Elton John, Barbra Streisand, Bono and others—won three Grammy Awards and went on to be one of the best selling CDs of the year and Tony’s career. Bennett’s first Duets album also inspired the Rob Marshalldirected television special Tony Bennett: An American Classic which won seven Emmys. In celebration of his 85th birthday in 2011 the release of Bennett’s highly anticipated, Duets II, featured Tony performing with a new roster of celebrated artists including, the late Amy Winehouse (her last recording was their duet of “Body and Soul”), Michael Buble, Aretha Franklin, Josh Groban, Lady Gaga, John Mayer, and many others. Duets II debuted at #1 on the Billboard Album charts, making Tony the only artist at the age of 85 to achieve this in the history of recorded music. A documentary entitled, THE ZEN OF BENNETT, which was created and conceived by Danny Bennett, Tony’s son and manager, was premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival 2012. At the end of 2012, Bennett also authored his fourth book, the New York Times bestseller, LIFE IS A GIFT, which highlights his personal philosophies learned throughout his life and career. Tony’s collaborative jazz album with Lady Gaga, released in 2014, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek To Cheek, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 album charts making Bennett, at the age of 88, the oldest artists to have a #1 album…breaking his own previously established historical record. Cheek To Cheek won a Grammy in the Best Traditional Pop Vocal category. Bennett’s 2015 release, The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern won a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal album. Tony Bennett became a Kennedy Center Honoree in 2005, was named an NEA Jazz Master in January of 2006, a Citizen of the World award from the United Nations and a Billboard Magazine Century Award in honor of his outstanding contributions to music. Tony Bennett is a dedicated painter whose interest in art began as a child. He continues to paint every day, even as he tours internationally. He has exhibited his work in galleries around the world. The United Nations has commissioned him for two paintings, including one for their 50th anniversary. His

original painting, “Homage to Hockney,” is on permanent display at the Butler Institute of American Art and the landmark National Arts Club in New York is home to Tony’s painting “Boy on Sailboat, Sydney Bay.” Three of his paintings are part of the Smithsonian Museums permanent collections including his portrait of his friend Duke Ellington that became part of the National Portrait Gallery’s collection in 2009. Throughout his career,Tony Bennett has always put his heart and time into humanitarian concerns. He has raised millions of dollars for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, which established a research fund in his name. His original paintings each year grace the cover of the American Cancer Society’s annual holiday greeting card, proceeds from which are earmarked for cancer research. He is active in environmental concerns and social justice. He marched with Dr. King in the historical Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights movement and the Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta bestowed upon him their “Salute to Greatness Award” for his efforts in fighting racial discrimination. In 1999, Tony Bennett, with his wife Susan Benedetto, a former public school teacher, founded Exploring the Arts (ETA) to strengthen the role of the arts in public high school education. ETA connects private funders, individual artists, and cultural institutions to Partner Schools to achieve greater equality of resources and opportunity for youth of all means and backgrounds. ETA’s first endeavor was the establishment of Frank Sinatra School of the Arts (FSSA), a public high school founded in 2001 by Tony and Susan in partnership with the NYC Department of Education. Its state of the art facilities include visual art studios and a gallery, black box theatres and a stagecraft workshop, dance studios, choral and orchestral classrooms, an 800-seat concert hall, a multi-media technology lab, and a rooftop performance garden. All students major in Dance, Theatre, Film, Fine Art, Vocal or Instrumental Music. To date, ETA currently partners with 23 public high schools -- 17 in all five boroughs of New York City and 6 schools located in East Los Angeles and expansion plans to serve more schools are underway.

Art Garfunkel: In Close-Up Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor,” singer ART GARFUNKEL has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being SOME ENCHANTED EVENING in 2007. Since then, he has been busy as a husband and father to his two sons, 26-year-old James and 10-year-old Beau Daniel. He is also an avid walker who has walked across Japan, the US (celebrated in the 1997 concert DVD ACROSS AMERICA) and now Europe. GARFUNKEL was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon. Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound Of Silence,” “The Boxer” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the biggest selling album ever. After Simon & Garfunkel parted ways in 1970, GARFUNKEL landed several major film roles, including “Carnal Knowledge” (opposite Jack Nicholson), “Catch 22” and Nicholas Roeg’s “Bad Timing/A Sensual Obsession.” His solo debut ANGEL CLARE spawned the top 10 hit “All I Know.” His other solo albums include BREAKAWAY (‘75; features the hit

“I Only Have Eyes For You”), WATERMARK (‘78; featuring “[What A] Wonderful World” with James Taylor and Paul Simon), FATE FOR BREAKFAST (‘79), SCISSORS CUT (‘81), THE ANIMALS’ CHRISTMAS (‘86), LEFTY (‘88), GARFUNKEL (greatest hits, ‘88), UP TILL NOW (‘93), ACROSS AMERICA (‘97), SONGS FROM A PARENT TO A CHILD (‘97), EVERYTHING WAITS TO BE NOTICED (’03), SOME ENCHANTED EVENING (’07) and THE SINGER (2012). The late ‘80s brought two new challenges for GARFUNKEL: he published Still Water, a collection of poetry in ‘89, and began an amazing trek across America--on foot. But the ‘80s and ‘90s found GARFUNKEL doing what he does best: singing for an audience. “Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” says GARFUNKEL, who relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world. “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job. I try to soothe, to lift...That’s my life.” GARFUNKEL earned his Bachelor of Arts degree at Columbia College, majoring in Art History; later he earned his Masters degree in Architecture at Columbia University. He lives in New York City with his wife Kim. GARFUNKEL is an avid reader and has chronicled every book he’s read since June 1968 on his website–-1,227 in all.

Culture Club Culture Club were one of the biggest pop bands of the 80s, racking up seven straight Top 10 hits in the UK and nine Top 10 singles in the US. Central to the band's appeal was the flamboyant front man Boy George, whose cross-dressing and heavy make-up created an image which was completely unique on the pop scene. George was also noted for his biting wit and frequently came up with cutting quips that won Culture Club media exposure on both sides of the Atlantic. Although they drew influence from the 'New Romantic' movement, Culture Club was also inspired by the music and fashion of 'Northern Soul', which helped to create a broader appeal. Culture Club grew out of the ashes of 'Sex Gang Children', formed by George and bassist Mikey Craig. Drummer Jon Moss and guitarist Roy Hay came on board, and by 1981 the band had been renamed. Early in 1982 a deal was signed with Virgin Records, but success eluded them until the release of their third single in the autumn, the massive breakthrough hit 'Do You Really Want To Hurt Me'. Shortly after this Culture Club's debut album 'Kissing To Be Clever', climbed to No.5 on the UK charts, while another non-album single 'Time (Clock Of The Heart)' reached No.3. The band's US success followed early in 1983 with the album and both singles riding high in the charts. A third single 'I'll Tumble 4 Ya' was taken from the album in the US, providing additional Top 10 success. By the time their second album 'Colour By Numbers' was released in autumn 1983, Culture Club were the most popular pop group in the world. 'Colour By Numbers' spawned 'Karma Chameleon' a transatlantic No.1, which sold over five million copies worldwide. Meanwhile the album was kept off the US No.1 spot for six consecutive weeks by Michael Jackson's record-breaking 'Thriller'. However the band's third album, 1984's 'Waking Up With The House On Fire', failed to repeat their earlier success with the critics

and on the charts. Its lead single 'The War Song' was their final Top 10 hit of the decade on both sides of the Atlantic. In 1984, Culture Club won the Brit Award for Best British Group,[3] theGrammy Award for Best New Artist, and Best British Single ("Karma Chameleon"). They were nominated the same year for the Grammy Award for Pop Vocal by Group or Duo but the English rock band The Police won the award. The band were also nominated for a Canadian Juno Award for International Album of the Year. In January 1985, Culture Club were nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group Video Artist, and in September 1985, they were nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards for Best Special Effects and Best Art Direction for their video "It's a Miracle". George began a long battle against drug dependence, confirming the group's breakup in 1987. That year he released his first solo single, a cover of the reggae classic 'Everything I Own', which rode a wave of public sympathy that culminated in a UK No.1. In 1989 George embarked on a new dance orientated career having several hits across Europe with Jesus Loves You, which led on to him becoming established as one of Britain's leading club DJs. He returned the UK and US Top 30s in 1992 with the theme song to the hit movie 'The Crying Game'. Jon and Mikey have established their own studios and Roy composes for movies and TV in Los Angeles. Culture Club reunited in 1998, releasing the two-disc set 'VH1 Storytellers/Greatest Hits'. The first captures the band live in the VH1 studios tackling both old and new material while the second is a compilation of remastered hits. The band also had a No.4 hit in the UK that year with 'I Just Wanna Be Loved'. Culture Club was the first band since The Beatles to achieve three top 10 hits from their debut album on the Billboard chart. Their hit single, "Time (Clock of the Heart)" has also been included on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's list of 500 songs that shaped rock and roll.


Culture Club In 2014, the band reformed and announced a tour and a new album. A new picture of the four members was also posted on the band's official website, and announced the list of the 11 UK concert dates. In midNovember 2014, two days before the start of their 21-date US and UK tour, Culture Club announced they had to cancel the tour due to George suffering from a serious throat condition.

Currently the band has re-announced their North American tour with scheduled dates in both Canada, and the United States, which will kick off in Vancouver on July 17th, 2015. This will be the first time the band has reunited in over a decade to come together and perform! In November 2014 they released their debut single, More Than Silence, from their latest album, Tribes, which is set to release later this year.

Her down-to-earth style and sturdy common sense have endeared her to Women of Faith® audiences, with whom she has traveled with since 2005. She’s an example to all of us of the freedom that comes from learning how to move on, learning from her mistakes and letting God use her in any circumstance. “I am grateful for the many opportunities for God has given in my life and for how He has allowed me to spread my wings,” says Sandi. “Singing is my way to tell my story of hope, life, and love.” Sandi and her husband, Don, have eight children. They currently reside in Oklahoma City, OK.
