Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit pays tribute to the talented men who in
turn pay tribute to some of the most iconic figures in showbiz history.

First, we introduce you to Frank Ferrante, a non-household name who
nonetheless has built a reputation as the world’s foremost channeler of the
one, the only,  Groucho Marx . He’ll be bringing his dead-on (and drop-dead
funny) homage, An Afternoon with Groucho, to the Pollak Theatre at  Monmouth University this weekend,
and the oRBit desk chatted with this amazing performer on the reasons why,
when all’s said and done, Marxism will prevail.

Back in Red Bank, we issue a reminder for fans of the sublime singmaster Roy Orbison to stop by the Count’s crib on Thursday, when Bobby Bandiera and the
Jersey Shore Rock ‘N Soul Revue present an encore Salute to Roy Orbison,
with the consummate Shore rocker and crew hitting those unearthly notes and
conveying the dramatic sweep of some of the greatest pop records of all
human history.

It’s an audience with greatness, and it happens only in the pixelated pages
of Red Bank oRBit.
