The premier musical tribute to Carole King, TAPESTRY: THE CAROLE KING SONGBOOK…

“…Brilliant! With a stellar band, Suzanne brought the audience on a journey through the songbook of Carole King…featuring one of the most life-changing albums of our era.”

This show recreates the sound and vibe of a 1970’s Carole King concert experience following her legendary album, “Tapestry.” You will be transported back to the iconic image of her multi-million selling album of 1971.

Impeccable attention to detail is taken in recreating a respectful and accurate musical presentation of piano and vocals, just as they were. Suzanne’s performance will take you on a journey back to those great recordings. During the 70’s & 80’s, Carole played solo, with acoustic musicians, and a full band with horns during this period. This show is performed in any of those formats.

TAPESTRY not only presents the record-breaking, Grammy-winning album of the same name, but is a retrospective of the iconic songwriting team of Goffin and King, and her hits that continued into the 70’s. This prolific team wrote chart-topping hits for artists such as Aretha Franklin, Bobby Vee, The Beatles, James Taylor, the Drifters, Donny Osmond…and the list goes on.

You will feel the Earth Move under your feet with this show!

***** Bambini’s Garden Pizzeria, 14466 Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484, 561) 638-6442.

This is a real simple tale to tell…

If you want some of the most delicious New York Style pizza, hot/cold subs, stromboli- down here in sunny South Florida…get yourself over to Bambini’s Garden Pizzeria in Delray Beach.

Just so you know, the joint is owned by the same folks that own- The Boys Farmers Market in Delray Beach (see review 10/17/14) …Bambini’s is basically a takeout, but there is limited indoor/outdoor seating.

This past Sunday afternoon, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats had a bunch of friends over to our home in Boca Raton…to feed the hordes of people- we picked up from Bambini’s 2- 20″ cheese pizzas ($14.99 each), 1- 20″ meatball pizza ($16.99), 1-20″ white pizza ($17.99), 3- 10″ chicken parmesan subs ($7.99 each), 3- 10″ eggplant parmesan subs ($7.99 each), 4- 10″ sausage/peppers/onions subs ($7.99 each), 3- pepperoni Stromboli ($9.99 each) and I am telling you EVERYTHING was delicious.

No fooling here, Bambini’s stuff literally blew Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and our friends away.

For what it’s worth-Jeff Eats had been hearing about this joint for months- and this past Sunday was the day “I” decided to give it a shot. The pizza was as close to perfect as can be… thin crispy crust, sweet sauce- the subs’ fillings were dynamite/the semolina seeded bread was terrific, the prices- tons of food for cheap money!

No crapping you guys, I couldn’t have picked a better joint for this particular home-event!

Bambini’s Garden Pizzeria is an absolute must try.

To make sure we are straight on the facts… basically a takeout, limited menu (stromboli, subs, wraps, salads, pizzas)- and if you are wondering, the joint “does pizza by the slice.”

Bambini’s website-bambinisgardenpizza.com- is kinda useless, no menu info provided.

Bambini’s Garden Pizzeria is open Monday-Thursday & Saturday 10:30am-9pm, Sunday 10:30am-7pm.

100 Billboard Chart Hits – 15 Grammy Nominations – Vocal Group Hall of Fame Inductee (as a 4 Season)

Charles Calello, is a former member of the 4 Seasons and Music Arranger for most of the group’s top ten hits.

This nationally acclaimed hit-maker takes you on a tour that mingles highlights of his career by performing his original arrangements for top artists on hit songs, such as: Sweet Caroline, (with Neil Diamond), My Heart Belongs to Me (with Barbra Streisand), After the Lovin’ (with Engelbert Humperdinck), Southern Nights (with Glen Campbell), Queen of Hearts (with Juice Newton), Native New Yorker (with Odyseey).

After four decades of writing music and conducting orchestras around the world, Calello continues to hold the Billboard magazine record for a Musical Arranger with more Top 10 hit records (38) than anyone in the history of Pop Music.

* Humor!

My 98 year old Aunt Alva is in a nursing home. I went to vist her the other day and was stopped by various men in dark glasses and searched. “What’s going on?” I asked. “The President is visiting” one said. I went into the day-room and there was the President and he was talking to my Aunt Alva! Amazing! As I approached, I saw her looking at him and she was clearly not understanding a word he was saying. He pickd up on this and said “You don’t know who I am do you?” Aunt Alva looked him up and down for a few seconds then repied “No, but if you ask one of the nurses she’ll tell you!”

Blood, Sweat & Tears is not the first band to ever use a horn section, but they are the first to fuse it with rock, jazz, and some blues thrown in for good measure. From the first ensemble in the late sixties practicing in a loft on Bleeker Street in New York’s Greenwich Village and having crowds clapping on the street below between songs, founding member and drummer Bobby Colomby knew they were on the right course. Since then, the band has never stopped touring for over 50 years.

The Band’s second album self-named “Blood Sweat & Tears” was a success, rising to the top of the charts for 7 weeks and yielding 3 top 5 singles including “God Bless The Child,” “Spinning Wheel” and “You’ve Made me So Very Happy.” The album received the Grammy Award for “Album of the Year” in 1970 beating out the Beatles’ “Abby Road”. That album went on to earn quadruple Platinum status with sales well over 4 million units. Come hear Blood Sweat & Tears perform your favorite songs with their new lead singer Keit
