FEATURING BRUCE MILLARD, KATHY DONNELLY, GERARD ESTELLA, TOM MACKEY, CRAIG DOVE, JIM COATES, AND JOANNE CHADIMA — WITH SPECIAL GUESTS DENNIS ‘DADDY-O’ MCMURRIN, CAROL MONTAG, AND JIM WHITE!
For nearly 20 years, the month of December at the Paramount Theatre was marked by Tribute’s winter holiday concert. You might recall host Kathy Donnelly’s one-liners and banter, along with Bruce and the band’s eclectic, offbeat intermission music that kicked off the second half of the show.
Now drawing from a catalog of songs accumulated over those 20 years of intermissions, plus some new material, they invite you to enjoy an ‘extended intermission.’
The group’s various members have worked with a wide range of well known artists, including Johnny Cash, Sting, Yo Yo Ma, Duke Ellington, Howard ‘Louie Bluie’ Armstrong, The Tower Of Power Horns, Gunther Schuller, and more.
Join us for an evening of music that straddles the lines between loose and tight, traditional and modern, original songs and reimagined covers, familiarity and surprise.
