Jukebox Saturday Night celebrates the compositions of Henry Mancini beginning with his early work with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, to his memorable melodies from TV and film classics such as Peter Gunn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Pink Panther and many more. A concise narration throughout the show includes historical information from Mancini’s very successful career, from his childhood in Pittsburgh, PA to his stardom in Hollywood.
Tap into the infectious energy of the music that skyrocketed classics like “American Graffiti”, “Happy Days” and “A Bronx Tale” to immediate success. Weave that nostalgic adrenalin into a soundtrack of the greatest hits of rock n’ roll replicated in a way that only a master record producer can achieve. Add in some genuine pros from the era and then unleash a youthful show-stopping charisma of the sons’ modern day indie band musicians. Finish off this heart-pumping mix with the lovingly engaging does of pure Italian “famiglia” and you might come close to capturing the seemingly “magical” appeal of The Bronx Wanderers!
The Bill Medley/Bucky Heard pairing came as something of a happy accident. Medley says it just seemed right... I'd been friends with Bucky for years, but when I caught his show he just killed me! The next day it hit me - that's the guy, someone I could sing hard with, laugh hard with, love and respect - on and off stage. He fits The Righteous Brothers live performance show perfectly. And, we've even recorded some new material together, I'm really excited!
