  • DateDecember 27, 2014
  • Time8pm, Doors
  • Fee$12

Come celebrate an intimate Christmas Sinatra Style [at The Van Dyck] with The Joey Thomas Big Band and vocalist Bob Father!

The Sinatra songbook from its beginning in the swing era of the 1930’s to the definitive recordings of the “sing” era of the 40’s and 50’s are representative of Frank Sinatra’s impact on American Culture, and despite changing record formats, Sinatra continually made his mark singing and promoting the American popular song throughout a career that spanned 60 years.

With dinner and a show, The Joey Thomas Big Band will have you humming Sinatra standards including “The Christmas Waltz,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas,” and “White Christmas” long after the evening is over!

A perfect Christmas gift for grandparents, parents ... or any American Songbook lover!

Two Nights, Three Legends:

Popa Chubby Celebrates The Stones and Jimi Hendrix

Guitar Ace Popa Chubby Celebrates 25 Years On The Road With A New Album "I’m Feelin’ Lucky"

And a 2 night weekend celebrating the Rock Blues music legends The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix.

Larger than life rock-blues figure Popa Chubby has a lot of reasons to feel lucky this year. 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of his emergence as a powerful force in the venerable New York blues scene with his very own band, and his own unique brand of hard hitting, face melting, blues rock n’ funky soul. And he’ll celebrate this major milestone the biggest way he knows how, with the release of a smokin’ hot studio album I’m Feelin’ Lucky on Cleopatra Records – and a 2 night weekend at Schenectady, NY's Van Dyck, paying tribute to two of Rock n Roll's greatest heros and influences, Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones.

Chubby took his cue from artists of the '60s, including Sly & the Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, The Stones and Eric Clapton, among others. In his early twenties, he worked for a while backing punk poet Richard Hell. Chubby's first big break was winning a national blues talent search sponsored by KLON, a public radio station in Long Beach, California. He won New Artist of the Year, and opened the Long Beach Blues Festival in 1992. Chubby played more than 200 club dates a year through the '90s.

His Sony/Okeh debut, Booty and the Beast, was produced by legendary Atlantic Records engineer/producer Tom Dowd, whose recordings by Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, and others are timeless.

“It’s been 25 years and I’m still standing,” declares Popa Chubby, and considering the long and rugged road he’s had to travel, that in itself is a miracle. From his beginning in the late ‘70s as a “bad kid with an afro and a brand new Gibson Midnight Special guitar” to his stint as a punk rock sideman for Screaming Mad George and Richard Hell, among others, to signing a deal with Sony and releasing one of the top selling blues albums of 1994 (the phenomenal Booty And The Beast), Popa Chubby has seen it all and lived to tell about it on well over a dozen studio albums!
