Master multi-instrumentalist David Bromberg makes his annual pilgrimage to the Count Basie Theatre this weekend.
We’ve sprung ahead, clock-wise, and have arrived at the middle of March with the feeling that the roar of the late-winter lion will soon enough succumb to the bleating of the lamb.
While it’s still technically not springtime just yet, a typically busy gust of activity at the Count Basie Theatre sounds the keynote for the coming months suggesting that we’ve all made it over the wacky-weather hump. Or is it Humperdinck?
Whatever you do, never suggest that his godzillions of female fans are anywhere near “over” the British-born singer who’s been seducing ’em in song since the Fab Four were still touring. When the eternal King of Romance often known “simply” as Engelbert returns to Red Bank on the heels of his 40th Anniversary Tour, he’ll be effectively extending Valentine’s Day well into the season when many of us give up Russell Stover assortments and Pink Champale for Lent with tickets for tonight’s Humper-palooza available here and much more Basie-based excitement right around the corner.
