PAUL BIELATOWICZ & SIMON FITZPATRICK (of Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy)

Guitarist Paul Bielatowicz and bassist Simon Fitzpatrick conclude their US tour with an intimate show at the Regent. Aside from their own solo work, Paul and Simon have been members of legendary drummer Carl Palmer’s touring band for several years and have performed over 500 gigs in 30-plus countries around the world. Individually, they have also performed and toured with such musicians as Dream Theater, Neal Morse (of Spock’s Beard), Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple), Kee Marcello (Europe) and Les Paul. For this special show, Bielatowicz and Fitzpatrick will take you on a roller coaster ride of the most challenging classical virtuoso showpieces – all played as you’ve never heard them before!


ABOUT PAUL BIELATOWICZ

Paul Bielatowicz is best known for his virtuoso guitar work with some of the biggest names in progressive rock. He’s played, recorded and toured the world with the likes of Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia), Neal Morse (Spock’s Beard), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big) and Les Paul…to name just a few. His 2014 debut solo album, “Preludes & Etudes,” saw him stripping the electric guitar back to basics, presenting it as a classical instrument – no overdubs, effects or studio tricks: just a guitar, an old amp and raw virtuosity.


ABOUT SIMON FITZPATRICK

Simon Fitzpatrick has toured and recorded with Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson, Jeff Beck), Carl Palmer (ELP, Asia), Joe Lynn-Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen), Kee Marcello (Europe) and Michael Hill (B.B. King) among others. Not content with simply being in the background, Fitzpatrick has always tried to take bass guitar playing as far as possible. Using all six strings of his extended range instrument, he performs as a lead player, a soloist or polyphonic accompanist. He has recently released his debut solo bass guitar album, “Reflections,” in which he uses his virtuoso technique to recreate a wide variety of pieces and styles. You’ve never seen or heard a bass guitar played like this before.

Have you ever been to a film musical and had the uncontrollable urge to burst into song?
Do you muse over the endless tailoring opportunities for chintz curtains?
Have you always wondered what it would be like to wear a wimple, a military uniform or lederhosen?

Sing-a-long Sound of Music is your chance to test your vocal range with several hundred other assorted nuns, Von Trapp family members and Julie Andrews look-a-likes.

The evening begins with a live on-stage show in which your host will lead you through a vocal warm-up, judge the fancy dress competition and award prizes. Costumes are not compulsory but they are highly recommended and you will be amazed at the inventiveness on display. The host will then show you how to use your free goody bag throughout the film and suggest some appropriate heckles and accompanying actions (such as hissing the countess, barking at Rolf and, of course, cheering for Julie).

Then, you sit back and watch the original 1965 movie in glorious Technicolor ™ with the lyrics for all the songs on the screen, so you won’t miss a chance to sing your hearts out.

“ONE OF THE BEST EVENINGS OF MY LIFE.”
~Marlene Speiler, San Francisco Chronicle

The Movie Host will invite everyone in costume to march on stage in the costume parade. Sing-A-Long Mary Poppins allows audiences to celebrate the golden age of movies by enjoying this Oscar®-winning film in the fashion in which it was meant to be seen – a grand theatrical setting, fully restored, with a state of the art sound system.

AFTERFAB The Beatles Solo Years

America's only band dedicated exclusively to the solo careers of all four BEATLES (1969-present)

Friday, November 20, 2015 at 7:30pm (Doors at 7:00pm)
All Seats are RESERVED and through November 19th tickets are $23.00 In-Advance (This fee includes a $3.00 Restoration/Facility Fee)

(A $3.00 Ticketing Fee is added for Web and Phone Orders)

 

 

 

AfterFab is America’s only tribute to the solo years of all four Beatles – and their unique concept has fans buzzing. The genius of The Beatles didn’t stop with “Abbey Road,” and AfterFab brings the brilliant solo careers of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr to life with high energy and high fidelity to the original recordings. Over 70 hit singles and numerous iconic tracks compose one of the best-loved classic-rock canons ever, from “Band on the Run” and “It Don’t Come Easy” to “Imagine,” “What Is Life” and dozens more.
AfterFab has attracted praise from noted Beatles experts and authors such as Robert Rodriguez and Ricardo Pugialli. “They did the solo stuff and *rocked* it!” declared promoter Charles Rosenay following AfterFab’s 2014 performance at his Danbury Fields Forever Fab Four Music Festival. Beatles radio show host Ken Michaels remarked, “Passion. You could see it in their faces. They’ve really studied the music. And the lead singer, he was outrageous!” More on AFTERFAB here…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What can you expect from an AfterFab show? A high-energy, passionate tribute to the mega-classic canon of The Beatles’ solo years, the only one in America, played with high fidelity to the original studio recordings. Beatles fans are absolutely everywhere and this unique concept and focus draws them in droves. It’s something new and different for Beatles and classic-rock fans, and general audiences, thanks to 70 US Top-40 hits and 325 million records collectively sold by John, Paul, George, and Ringo, post-Beatles. The genius didn’t stop with Abbey Road. This is the classic Beatles music that fans have been missing.

AfterFab is a formidable six-member powerhouse of long-experienced Beatles-expert musicians with a dynamic, entertaining front man and a talent for getting the music right. Not impersonators, but a music-first tribute along the lines of Brit Floyd, Get The Led Out, or The Fab Faux. Based in New England, the band began in 2012, designed from the start as a concert attraction for top music clubs, performing-arts spaces, theatres, and venues that desire to present something special for guests. Misson-driven to convey the brilliance of the solo Beatles’ legacy, AfterFab adds extra dimensions of entertainment with back-stories of the songs, fascinating trivia, and video of images of solo Beatles LPs, singles, adverts, and quotations.

Great-Grandchildren of Captain and Maria von Trapp Reinvent the Legacy of Their Birthright for the Modern Age

Meet The von Trapps, the next generation. Siblings Sofia (26), Melanie (24), Amanda (23) and August (20), the great-grandchildren of the Captain and Maria von Trapp, are reinventing the legacy of their birthright for the modern age. Dancing in Gold, the first of three EPs of entirely original material that The von Trapps are sending out into the world over the next two years, was released this past April.

For their first foray into the studio in their new incarnation, the siblings sought out a kindred spirit, approaching Israel Nebeker, the lead singer and songwriter of Blind Pilot, to produce the album. Inspired by the work of artists such as Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Sufjan Stevens, Francoise Hardy, and the Beach Boys, the harmonic folk-pop that sings out of Dancing in Gold is 21st-century von Trapp, inventive, earnest and exquisite. Nebeker gets right to the heart and soul of the matter: “Their sound is an open collage, unafraid of combining disparate style and sentiment. Most importantly to me, it communicates honestly and is sung from the heart.”

The von Trapps’ musical journey began as a fluke and a brainstorm in 2001. During summer visits to their Montana home, their grandfather Werner von Trapp taught them the Austrian folk songs he loved as a child. When he became too ill to travel, they crafted a homemade recording to cheer him up, never expecting it would inspire a career in music. The von Trapps have been on stage together ever since. Their performances make room for melodicas and ukuleles, lyrics that can unspool in ten languages, twinges of Appalachia and Portlandia, some shout-outs to the Mamas & Papas, all filtered through the DNA of the most beloved musical ever, The Sound of Music. They have toured extensively, from Beijing’s Forbidden City to the Sydney Opera House, performed with major symphonies across the country, appeared on Oprah, and recorded with artists such as Wayne Newton and Rufus Wainwright.

For the past few years, The von Trapps have been frequent guest performers with Pink Martini, the globetrotting pop sensation. The two groups collaborated on Pink Martini’s eighth studio album, Dream a Little Dream, released in March 2014, which has sold over 20,000 copies in the US alone, and was featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition.

Emboldened by that collaboration, flourishing in the rich creative world of their adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon and burgeoning with new ideas, The von Trapps cast off on their own to trail blaze a new musical path.

As the von Trapps tell Rolling Stone, “This new chapter in our career feels very electric; I think our current sound is super fresh, personal, and fun. Fourteen years of touring the world together has given each of us a well of inspiration, and we are at a point where all of that energy is overflowing. How each of us blend our styles together is both a challenge and a thrilling discovery for us, yet this first creation, Dancing in Gold, found a wonderfully surprising and compelling place. We’re eager to see how our music manifests itself moving forward.”

ULTRASONIC ROCK ORCHESTRA

performs

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SEE AND HEAR A TASTE OF URO’S “Jesus Christ Superstar”!

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Jesus Christ Superstar” changed the face of musical theater when it debuted on Broadway in 1971 with Chart-topping songs such as “Superstar,” “Everything’s Alright” and “I Don’t Know How to Love Him.”. Now the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra (URO)—a huge,10-vocalist rock band—brings its version of the rock opera that changed the world to the Regent stage. It’s a full-on contemporary rock ‘n’ roll spectacle, complete with epic lighting, thunderous sound—and not a robe or sandal in sight.

This live performance is the natural offshoot of the Ultrasonic Rock Orchestra’s first studio recording, “Jesus Christ Superstar—A 21st Century Tribute to the Brown Album” recorded a decade ago, born out of the URO co-founder’s mutual admiration of this classic rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice — first recorded in 1970 with Ian Gillan of Deep Purple singing “Jesus” (the fabled “Brown Album.”)

Now, by popular demand, for the second time on the Regent stage, the URO will perform the 26-song hit epic in its entirety as you’ve never heard nor seen it before.

RICKY NELSON

He is the only artist to have a No. 1 song (Poor Little Fool), No. 1 movie (Rio Bravo), and No. 1 TV show (The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet) in the same week. Life Magazine coined the phrase “teen idol” after him and he is credited with pioneering the country rock sound.


Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ricky Nelson’s life and music touched millions, and now his twin sons, multi-platinum recording artists Matthew & Gunnar Nelson, relive the music and memories in their multi-media event, Ricky Nelson Remembered.  This multimedia event features hit songs like “Travelin’ Man” and “Hello Mary Lou” as well as never-before-seen interviews from the artists Ricky Nelson influenced, including Paul McCartney, John Fogerty, and Chris Isaak. Matthew and Gunnar’s musical event is heartfelt and full of laughter.  Ricky Nelson died in a plane crash on his way to perform a New Year’s Eve concert in 1986. His legacy includes 53 hit singles on the Billboard Hot 100 and nineteen other top-ten hits. He is one of the biggest- selling artists of all time, a Golden Globe winner for his performance alongside John Wayne in Rio Bravo and in the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.  From Ozzie and Harriet to Ricky to Matthew and Gunnar, the Nelsons are listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only family in history with three successive generations of No. 1 hit makers.

Armed with nothing more than a trunk full of props, a quick, dry wit, and a mysterious, “cat-like” agility, Jim bounds to the stage and begins his show. He performs amazing feats of skill, thrives on audience interaction, and enjoys accepting challenges. He runs, he jumps, he dances and sings! (Actually, Jim doesn’t do any singing.)

When attempting the impossible, things can go wrong, and in The Jim Show, they often do; yet Jim displays an intriguing self confidence and “stick-to-it” attitude that keeps audiences glued to every performance. People love to watch Jim accomplish his seemingly unachievable tasks. The show is guaranteed to amaze and amuse.

Named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” for 2015 and one of Boston’s “25 Most Innovative People Under 25,” tap dancer Ryan P. Casey uses his towering, 6’8” talent to present engaging, inventive, rhythm-based choreography that is at turns thoughtful, comical, and satirical. Incorporating poetry, cinematography, humor, and more, Casey playfully lampoons his height, doffs a top hat to idol Fred Astaire, and even tries his hand (and feet) at basketball—all to a soundtrack including Barbra Streisand, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Count Basie. Peppered with musings on life and dance, “Tall Tales” takes tap dancing to new heights for this “improbably tall tap fave” (The Boston Globe).

“This gangly dancer can morph from a giraffe into a grasshopper with the graceful fold of the limbs; he shows the awkwardness and then the spindly side of his body’s strange beauty.” —The New York Times

“Tap lovers ogle at his freakishly clean footwork, with shaded in-the-pocket rhythms reminiscent of Fred Astaire…. His work reaches beyond traditional notions of what tap should be.” —Dance Magazine

Monty Python is on a medieval quest in their first feature film Monty Python and The Holy Grail. England 932 A.D and King Arthur (Graham Chapman) accompanied by his trusty servant Patsy (Terry Gilliam) is seeking Knights to join his Round Table at Camelot. Arthur confronts two guards preoccupied with swallows, argues with a group of constitutional peasants, challenges a Black Knight who comes apart at the seams and witnesses the outing of a witch before enrolling his first knight, Bedevere the Wise (Terry Jones). Other knights follow: Sir Lancelot the Brave (John Cleese), Sir Galahad the Pure (Michael Palin) and the not-quite-so-brave Sir Robin (Eric Idle). Avoiding the singing dancers of Camelot, Arthur and his Knights are inspired by God to quest together for the Holy Grail. But taunted and humiliated by the French, they decide go their separate ways. Sir Robin is confronted by a Three-Headed Knight, Sir Lancelot hacks his way through a wedding to save a damsel in distress, Arthur and Bedevere, warned by a Soothsayer, meet the shrubbery loving Knights of Ni while Sir Galahad almost falls to the temptation of the virgins of Castle Anthrax. The Knights join up again and after an arduous journey encounter Tim the Enchanter who leads them to the cave, guarded by a foul creature, wherein an ancient inscription reveals the whereabouts of the Grail.
The Bridge of Death claims its victims and only Arthur and Bedevere reach the final resting place of the Holy Grail, only to be thwarted by old adversaries.

Through The Doors is a multimedia celebration of Jim Morrison and The Doors touring since 1980. This re-creation of the sound, look and “feel” of an actual Doors concert is so complete, it never ceases to startle even the seasoned crew. And it starts right away: In the darkened theater, well before the band has taken the stage, anticipation runs hot and the chanting for “Jim” begins. Perhaps it is the audiences’ overwhelming desire to experience a true “Resurrection” that fuels the flames. Or, attribute it if you must, to a legend that survives, even grows, some 40 years after the mysterious death of James Douglas Morrison and the dissolution of his band.

Even now The Doors’ albums continue to sell and Jim’s face still appears on the covers of magazines, film, television and radio. They serve up the “Lizard King” on a daily basis, and still the masses pay homage in droves that surpass even the dizzying heights of the band’s popularity when still “alive”. And yet, a Through The Doors performance goes far beyond the simple duplication of a concert that would have been standard late 1960’s fare.

This performance is more akin to a Broadway show or Vegas Extravaganza – seasoned professional actor/musicians utilizing sound, staging, lighting, and projection equipment that audiences have come to expect. The effect is electrifying and the response has been phenomenal, as their longevity alone can testify to.  So, sit back in your seat (for as long as you can), and get ready to travel through the Doors of perception, traverse space and time on a psychedelic, mind expanding dance-trance!  Ladies and Gentlemen: Through The Doors!

The association most people have between Jimi Hendrix and massive festivals is Woodstock.

But on July 3-5, 1970, about 100 miles south of Atlanta in Byron, Hendrix played to the largest American audience of his career, an estimated 300,000-400,000, at the second Atlanta International Pop Festival.

“Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church,”  is a new feature documentary about Hendrix’s appearance and the circumstances surrounding it.
OFFICIAL MOVIE TRAILER

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Electric Church” includes interviews with legendary Atlanta concert promoter Alex Cooley, who talks about how, despite a lineup already stocked with Bob Seger, B.B. King and the Allman Brothers Band, Hendrix was needed to boost the festival so it would be considered a major cultural event.

Others who agreed to interviews in the film are Hendrix’s Experience bandmate Billy Cox, Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Rich Robinson, Kirk Hammett, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi.

Fans can expect to see 16mm color footage of Hendrix’s July 4 appearance, which took place only 10 weeks before he died. Performances include “Hey Joe,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Purple Haze” and “Straight Ahead,” which Hendrix had anticipated to release on the album he was working on that summer.

In the film, Cooley remarks that Hendrix’s version of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” played against a backdrop of fireworks, “knocked peoples’ socks off.”
(Run Time: 89-Min)
In addition to the film, Experience Hendrix L.L.C. and Legacy Recordings will release “Freedom: Jimi Hendrix Experience Atlanta Pop Festival” as a 2-CD set and a 200-gram 2-LP vinyl set (the first 5,000 vinyl units will be individually numbered).

The film tells the story of Ireland’s seminal rock band Taste, formed in Cork in 1966 by Rory Gallagher, Taste had a brief but influential career, releasing two studio albums in 1969 and 1970 and disbanding shortly after their legendary appearance at the 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival, which is the centerpiece of this film. The core of “What’s Going On” is the band’s performance at the festival on August 28th but it is encapsulated by a documentary on the history and importance of Taste and setting the scene for their Isle Of Wight Festival appearance. This features contributions from Rory’s brother and Taste road manager Donal Gallagher along with Brian May (Queen), The Edge (U2), Bob Geldof and renowned guitarist Larry Coryell. Taste’s performance at the festival was so well received that Jimi Hendrix when asked on the Sunday, “How does it feel to be the best guitarist in the world”, replied, “I don’t know, why don’t you go and ask Rory Gallagher?”

The original 1970 footage was shot by Academy Award winning director Murray Lerner. Lerner a Harvard Graduate is an American documentary and experimental film director and producer. Murray Lerner Website

The 16mm film has been restored and the sound remixed for this 2015 version of “What’s Going On – Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970” which includes all the tracks on the original 1971 Polydor LP plus several additional tracks. Bonus features on this release include three tracks from the German TV series Beat Club: “If The Day Was Any Longer”, “It’s Happened Before, It’ll Happen Again” and “Morning Sun”. Additionally there are three conceptual music videos for the tracks “I’ll Remember”; “What’s Going On” and “Born On The Wrong Side Of Time”.

Rory Gallagher would go on to enjoy an acclaimed and highly successful solo career. Johnny Marr said, “The man who changed my musical life was Rory Gallagher, I picked up a guitar because of him.” The electrifying “What’s Going On – Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970” is an early example of Rory’s justified reputation as the ultimate live performer.

Rory Gallagher and Taste are also being celebrated with the “I’ll Remember” 4CD box set released by Universal on 28 August 2015 boasting remastered Versions of Their Two Acclaimed Studio Albums “Taste” and “On The Boards”, including Bonus Studio and Live Tracks and Demos.

UNITY is a new film from the writer and director of EARTHLINGS, and features an unprecedented cast of 100 celebrity narrators.

 

See the Cast here…

 


It is a documentary about why we can’t seem to get along with each other, even after thousands and thousands of years.

Seven years in the making, UNITYis a unique film about compassion for all beings, or all “expressions of life”, going beyond all “separation based on form”, and beyond perceiving opposites. Writer/Director Shaun Monson, collaborating with an astounding cast of 100 celebrity narrators (never before gathered in the history of filmmaking), presents a message of love, tragedy and hope, all set against the backdrop of some of the most compelling 20th and 21st Century footage imaginable.


OFFICIAL MOVIE TRAILER…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Presented in chapters, (like its predecessor EARTHLINGS) UNITY takes an in-depth look at what it truly means to be human, to be mortal, and to be incarnate in this world. The film explores our brief existence among the Cosmos (Chapter I), then moves on to the perceptions of our Mind (Chapter II), the nature of our Body (Chapter III), the infinite capacity of our Heart (Chapter IV), and ultimately to the mysterious energy of the Soul (Chapter V). Initially, these chapters will appear unrelated to each other. But as the film progresses it becomes clear that all life is interconnected, and each chapter represents the totality of our mortal experience, which is only measured in decades.

With a cast of 100 voices all speaking as one voice, UNITY is a genuine cinematic experience unlike any other.

A gorgeous look inside honeybee colonies

Bookmark and Share

Taking a journey through the honeybee colonies in California, Switzerland, China, and Australia, “More Than Honey” explores bee decimation. The same scenario is repeated around the world: 50%-90% of bees are disappearing from colony to colony. The bee epidemic has started a phenomenon known in the scientist community as, “Colony Collapse Disorder.” The dying species has had a negative global effect, and without the bee population, our humanity will slowly be affected.

Director and writer, Markus Imhoof travels from the different regions to interview beekeepers’ work to preserve their colonies. With their knowledge and practice in the bee world, the beekeepers show the daily paradox working in both natures’ rhythm and against it.

“This. Film. Is. Fascinating.” – Cleveland International Film Fest*

“Surprisingly up-close images of bees at rest and in flight give buzz to an inescapably downbeat topic”

Featuring 2011 Grammy nominated vocalist Judy Pancoast

Pancoast was just eleven years old when her older sister told her about a song she’d heard on the radio, and said that the girl singing it sounded “just like you.”  That was the summer of 1970, and when Judy finally heard “(They Long to Be) Close to You” it was the beginning of a childhood adulation that would last well into her adult years.  She spent her adolescent and teen years listening nearly non-stop to the music of the brother and sister duo who called themselves “Carpenters,” and she became one of the charter members of their fan club at age 12. 

Judy’s natural rich alto voice blended well with Karen’s, and she spent countless hours in front of a mirror with a hair brush “microphone” mimicking her idol’s voice.  Later, while a music major at the University of Maine, she was advised to “stop trying to sound like Karen Carpenter,” but although she managed finally to all but erase the traces of Karen’s styling, the influence had already had its impact.  Randy Schmidt, author of “Little Girl Blue: the Life of Karen Carpenter” says this about Judy: “…her velvety voice, phrasing and conversational delivery of a song are all products of years spent listening to the timeless recordings of the Carpenters. Her passion and joy for the material make Judy the perfect vocalist to pay tribute.”

“... Pancoast kept her audience thoroughly entertained for over two hours, reaching people on an emotional level. Pancoast didn’t settle for imitation. She channeled the essence of what The Carpenters always tried to do: show respect and warmth for the people they were singing to. And Pancoast has a voice to handle the technical challenges and emotive qualities of that music…. ”—Bill Copeland Music News

This Show is Sold Out! Thank you!

Between Identity, Willpower, and Passion:
This is Tango Now’s Identidad Renews the Tango Experience on the Stage

It is midnight outside: a magical and mystical time for hundreds of cultures past and present.  Respect, appreciation and fear for this moment infuses the bodies and minds of those brave enough to venture on it.  In Tango the midnight, its darkness, and the pulse of the city at that very moment conjures the deepest introspection, and opens up a window for change. But more than a moment in time, the midnight is a portal, it represents the end and the beginning, when and where things die, are born, and reborn, and this cycle goes on repeating itself for all eternity.

It is midnight inside: in the depths of people’s hearts and minds.  The introspective mood allows our main character, the Marionette, to realize her condition.  Devoid of freewill she suddenly grasps the distressing reality that, like most everyone around her, she has been manipulated her entire life.  On her side, the Duende, the incarnation and materialization of the midnight, the spirit of passion and change.  Against her, the Puppeteer, the manipulator, the one who won’t let her go.  What follows is a struggle for freedom, for a new identity, for willpower, and for the right to live life with the fullest of passions.

This is Tango Now’s Identidad, is the creation of three highly accomplished artists: dancers and choreographers Fernanda Ghi & Guillermo Merlo, and musician and anthropologist Alfredo Minetti.  They felt a gap in the world of tango shows as well as a need from contemporary audiences that was unfulfilled.  They decided then to go beyond the traditional tango show, creating a complete sensorial experience, using the powerful rationality and emotiveness, and the raw intensity and kinetic energy that only tango has, and created a story that resonates with any person living in the present.  In order to stage it, they decided for a tango quartet (bandoneón, violin, piano and double bass) and selected some of the greatest tangos composed and arranged by Osvaldo Pugliese and Astor Piazzolla.  They selected two more couples of dancers to share the stage with Fernanda & Guillermo, who choreographed the show with some of the best dance one will ever see. And finally, they teamed up with one of the greatest light designers in South America, Aníbal Rea, who took the challenge to add yet another incredible layer to this experience. The result is a tango experience unlike any other!

Every detail of this show has been meticulously and creatively crafted in order to create a magical and mystical experience for the senses.  Much more than performance takes place in the stage.  The trio designed the show to produce a synergy between the performers and spectators.  The nostalgia, sensuality, vulnerability, irony, and passion of tango pour out from the stage infusing every spectator.  The main goal of the performers is to touch the souls of the audiences. Through the deep melancholic passion and cathartic introspection of the tango, audiences will come to see their surroundings with the renewed spirit that the mythical midnight allows — feeling the world as a tango.

Renowned Rock & Roll photographer Kevin Mazur, has pulled together an impressive team for his first feature-length documentary about the changing face of celebrity and the many ways that the media has conveyed, defined, and even demeaned what it means to be famous today.Taking a historical ride through the early days of Hollywood and the rise of the paparazzi, $ellebrity explores how fame has changed from the highly-structured studio system to the current free-for-all press and paparazzi frenzy.

Candid interviews with Jennifer Aniston, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sara Jessica Parker, and Kid Rock among others, help to give a glimpse into the lives of those on the front lines of our increasingly obsessive world of pop culture celebrity.

Fame is now a national pastime, it is what millions of us follow, believe in and seemingly what we care about most - as well as a billion dollar-a-year industry.  But what does our intense fascination with celebrity say about us? And how much is too high a price to pay for our own curiosity run rampant? $ellebrity captures the free-for-all of pop culture today and the ever-changing face of fame.

(“The devil’s guitarist” from the movie Crossroads who cut his teeth in Frank Zappa’s band). After playing nearly 100 cities in 120 days, DHC brings it all back home in her own solo show at her hometown theater, the Regent in Arlington, MA.

“This has been the experience of a lifetime! Getting to perform one-on-one with one of the greatest living instrumentalists has changed the entire dimension of my own solo show.  And I specifically scheduled this Solstice Celebration right after the tour so I could capture that moment and put it on stage.” Deborah Henson-Conant

DHC’s One-Woman Shows combine Blues-Flamenco-Jazz-World music with solo theatre and an instrument invented specifically for her: the electric body-harp.

Buy VIP tix and you’re invited to the exclusive pre-show Reception RIGHT ONSTAGE with Deborah and a limited group of audience members.  You can see the instruments up-close-and-personal, ask Deborah whatever you want – and then get first choice of theater seats (including the ultra-cushy first two center rows!). Reception begins at 6:45 and ends at 7:20, ten minutes before the house opens to other audience members. (Wine & beer also available at the cash bar).

“An engrossing study in the communication possible…between man and beast.”
- Variety

“That rare gem that reaches out to anyone with a soul and leaves an indelible impression”
- Collider.com

“A crowd-pleaser with a big heart”
- The Hollywood Reporter

Each year thousands of wild horses are rounded up and removed from public lands by the U.S. Government. All will need permanent homes. None has ever been touched by a human hand.

Wild Horse, Wild Ride tells the story of the Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge, an annual contest that dares 100 people to each tame a totally wild mustang in order to get it adopted into a better life beyond federal corrals.

Stunning and poignant, Alex Dawson and Greg Gricus’ debut feature documentary chronicles a handful of unforgettable characters from their first uneasy meeting with their horses and over three months as they attempt to transform from scared strangers to the closest of companions.

Eventually all will converge in Fort Worth, Texas, to compete against each other and offer the horses up for adoption at an auction in which the trainers, if they wish to keep their horses, must bid against the public.
Hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as a “crowd-pleaser with a big heart,” the film traverses across the United States to tell stories of the profound the bonds that can develop between people and animals. From the rolling hills of New Hampshire to the Navajo Nation to the heart of Cowboy Country, the film captures a journey that is at times harrowing, humorous, heartwarming and heartbreaking as these wild spirits - both human and horse - embark on the ride of their lives.

Powderwhore Productions, a backcountry ski film company based in Utah, is proud to announce its eighth annual ski movie, called “Choose Your Adventure.” The film will premiere at Brewvies in Salt Lake City on September 26th 2012, followed by a 50 city TOUR through ski towns throughout North America.

This movie is such a mixed bag of characters, exotic locations and action that we wanted to get that point across with the title. You really can’t guess what’s coming next in this film, like the Choose Your Own Adventure book series we enjoyed growing up. We’re exploring an abandoned mining town in the Arctic, dropping cliffs with Hugo Harrison in British Columbia, plunging into the Antarctic Sea in speedos, blasting through deep powder, catching up with crusty locals in the Wasatch and more.

Our interest lies in finding people with real stories and ski objectives. We wanted to tag along and capture their actions and motivation for heading into the mountains, creating more of an authentic experience. We traveled light and moved fast to avoid interfering with the actual adventures as they unfolded.

Despite the underwhelming winter of 2011-12, in which snowfall reached near record lows and unstable avalanche conditions,the Powderwhores were able to make the most of the conditions at home and abroad, with trips to Cerro Castillo, Chile; La Grave, France; the Antarctic Peninsula; Svalbard, Norway; Mount Foraker, Alaska; British Columbia, Canada, and the Wasatch Mountains in Utah.

The film features an array of characters from salty backcountry veterans to some of the top skiers and snowboarders, including Chris Davenport, Jake Sakson, Andrew McLean, Seth Wescott, Dylan Freed, Noah Howell, Matt Reardon, Drew Stoecklein, Forrest Coots, Ian Provo, Neil Provo, Chuck Mumford, Darrell Finlayson, Bob Athey, PY Leblanc, Jason Thompson,Todd Stuart and Hugo Harrison.

In the end, this is a feature-length ski film that celebrates exotic locations, wild adventures, and the dedicated personalities writing their own stories in snow.

Beatles songs have become timeless classics—inspiring and delighting people of every age with their wisdom, humor, humanity, and unforgettable rock-n-roll.

The Family Folk Chorale will bring Beatles songs to life as never before!

The full chorus will bring you the domestic romp of “Ob La Di Ob La Da,” and the whimsical fun of “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The Folk Chorale’s kids will lead you through the delightful imaginings of “Octopus’s Garden,” the women put a new spin on the R&B tribute “Lady Madonna,” and our amazing teens will turn up the heat with a medley of rocking tunes . . . and much more!

A Family Folk Chorale concert is great fun for all ages.  As always, the audience is an integral part of the show.  You’ll be inspired by seeing families making music together, and you won’t want to miss singing “Let It Be” and “All You Need is Love” with 500 other voices! 

The Family Folk Chorale has been performing since 1999.  Our 60 voices – ages 5-75 – are joined by a stellar band and guest instrumentalists.  Artistic Director Christopher Eastburn’s sensitive arrangements will mirror the Beatles’ original recordings and also bring new depth to some of their greatest songs.

This will be a magical mystery tour that will remind you and your family of how much fun it is to sing together!
Join us for a memorable afternoon!

ABOUT JON COHAN AND HIS GOLDEN RULERS
Jon Cohan and His Golden Rulers play classic American blues, rhythm and blues, soul, funk, and rock and roll from the 1950s - 1970s. Drummer and bandleader Jon Cohan formed the band in 2009 with some of his favorite local musicians to perform at Right Turn Live, a sober cafe in Arlington, MA. Cohan’s goal was simple: to introduce audiences to the great groove-based music he grew up listening to. Since its inception the band has grown into a nine-piece outfit. Boston rock stalwarts like Phil Kaplan of Men and Volts and Sal Baglio of The Stompers join dynamic singer Erica Rothenberg, guitarist Mike Pyle, bassist Jeff Keithline, percussionist Stephen Whitney, saxophonist Artie Camacho, and keyboardist Bob Camacho. The combined talents of the musicians brings a fresh and swinging interpretation to some of the finest examples of American music, including some tasty, rockin’ Holiday tunes for this special Regent concert. 

ABOUT RYAN CASEY
At 6’8″, Ryan P. Casey looks more suited for the basketball court than the stage. But his keen ear for the rhythms of words and the rhythms of dance has launched his career as a talented writer who is “fast becoming recognized as one of the top tap dance soloists in the country.” Ryan has worked with such great instructors and choreographers as Brenda Bufalino, Heather Cornell, Michelle Dorrance, Barbara Duffy, Sean Fielder, Derick K. Grant, Adrienne Hawkins, Josh Hilberman, Jeannie Hill, Jimmy Locust, Drika Overton, Jason Samuels Smith, Sarah Petronio, Sue Ronson and Dianne Walker.

ABOUT MATIAS LETELIER
Matias is a professional magician with more than 15 years of experience in magic shows and family entertainment. He has performed in the USA, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, Japan, China, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia. He performs a variety of magic and illusion shows hundreds of times per year. He was the top children’s magician in Chile before moving to the USA.

ABOUT JERRY BISANTZ
Local actor Jerry Bisantz will perform selected monologues from his IRNE nominated (Best Actor) portrayal of beat writer Jack Kerouac, written by playwright Patrick Fenton, from the original play Kerouac’s Last Call, which will appear in early 2013 at the new Regent Underground Theater (The “RUT”)

Dan Foley, a virtuoso juggler and skilled comedian, will keep both adults and children laughing and amazed! Dan is best known as the homely half of the fabulous juggling duo, the Airborne Comedians—sometimes appearing at the Boston Museum of Science and other venues as the Amazing Nano Brothers.

There is something very special about dance. A special magic to the human body moving well that we can all relate to. Add captivating music, glamour and pageantry and no wonder TV dance shows became such an overnight success. 

  The latest show from the Bellydance Superstars is the culmination of 10 years of touring the world – over 800 shows in 25 countries – pushing the boundaries of the art of bellydance to capture the artistry, magic and passion of this unique dance in all its variety.  So when looking for a name for the 2012-2013 show only one name seemed to sum up what it would be :  “THE MAGIC OF DANCE”

  The Bellydance Superstars did not have the luxury of following in another’s footsteps; developing and improving on the work of others along a known course.  They were the first and only full time bellydance show touring the mainstream dance world.  As such they had a lot to prove, mindsets to change and educate as they defined and expanded on the understanding of what this dance art was.  They set a string of firsts; from national TV broadcasts of their shows in North America, Japan, China and elsewhere to performing top level shows in some of the most prestigious venues in the world; venues heretofore reserved for the likes of the ballet or super successful shows like Riverdance.  Their DVDs and CDs are the best known and distributed the world over – even officially released in China.

    Above all the Bellydance Superstars are known for a great show – fast paced, lots of variety in music and dance styles, not afraid to fuse other dance arts from ballet to African into their repertoire; seeing bellydance as a big picture with a big future.  As in past shows, the vibrant and exciting music is matched only by the many beautiful costume changes for each number.  All in all when you have great dancers, great music, beautiful costumes, and a dedicated team on a mission to deliver, surprise and excite you will definitely achieve a Magic – that is what THE MAGIC OF DANCE is set to do.

On December 10, 2007, Led Zeppelin took the stage at London’s O2 Arena to headline a tribute concert for dear friend and Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. What followed was a two-­hour-­plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues­‐infused rock ’n’ roll that instantly became part of the legend of Led Zeppelin. Founding members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were joined by Jason Bonham, the son of their late drummer John Bonham, to perform 16 songs from their celebrated catalogue including landmark tracks “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” “Kashmir,” and “Stairway To Heaven.”

Although 20 million people applied for tickets, the band’s first headline show in 27 years was seen only by the 18,000 ticket holders who were fortunate enough to have secured seats through the worldwide lottery. Now, for the first time, fans in over 40 territories worldwide will be able to get a front row seat to experience this historic event in glorious high definition and incredible surround sound.

What Jimi Hendrix accomplished in the span of four short years before his death in 1970 at age 27 is nothing short of phenomenal. Now, more than four decades later, Hendrix is widely considered the greatest electric guitarist of all time. On Tuesday, November 13, Arlington Community Education and the Regent Theatre will co-host Hendrix at 70, a panel discussion of the life, music and legacy of this rock icon. The program will take place in the Arlington High School Media Center, 869 Massachusetts Avenue.

Panelists include Steve Morse, journalist and long-time Boston Globe music editor; Joel J. Brattin, Hendrix scholar and Professor of Humanities at Worcester Polytechnic Institute; and Carter Alan, author and host of “Sunday Morning Blues” on WZLX/Boston. Leland Stein, Regent Theatre co-owner and lifelong Hendrix enthusiast, will moderate the panel discussion and the Q&A to follow.

The program will explore Hendrix’s legacy and his diverse – and, at times, surprising – influences, and the tremendous impact he has had on a wide swath of music and musicians that followed him. Panelists will highlight songs from his non-hit repertoire with a focus on his gentler side and more lyrical tunes – the hidden Hendrix beyond ”Purple Haze” and “Hey Joe” and the contemplative, humble man behind the flamboyant stage persona.

In the days following this event, the Regent Theatre will host several additional programs in celebration of Hendrix’s 70th birthday.

More than 40 years after their debut album, The Doors’ music and legacy are more influential than ever before.

“His humble sense of humility is what makes Trapper’s songs so strong… He makes you feel like you are the person he’s singing about.  The Few & the Far Between is another strong addition to the Chris Trapper/Push Stars catalog.”  Popdose


CHRIS TRAPPER began his career as the front man for late-90’s alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records).  With four CD releases and several high profile national tours—including a run with Matchbox Twenty—The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent. 

As a modern day singer /songwriter, Chris is most known for his song This Time, the #1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers /Warner Bros Pictures). 

The newest CD (released October 2011), The Few & The Far Between, is a collection of 14 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper.  This new work was Produced, Recorded and Mixed by Dan McLoughlin (The Push Stars, Mike Peters, Juliana Hatfield) at the Vault Recording Studio, Hoboken, NJ.

Focus tracks include the CD opener, Here All Along, featuring guest vocals by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty, The More I Think featuring vocals and slide guitar by Colin Hay of Men at Work and Ghost In Your Arms featuring backing vocals from Boston’s own Kristen Cifelli. 

The New York Times calls his work “classic pop perfection.”

A prolific songwriter, Chris can boast high profile film placements including There’s Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn’t So (Heather Graham) and Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women’s Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle, a coveted placement in George Clooney’s final episode of ER, the theme song for WB Networks dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show’s star, Rebecca Romjin.

Chris Trapper’s music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra-ordinary characters. 

A respected songwriter of the highest caliber, Chris has written 7 songs with/for Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA, including their #1 single “Sea Of No Cares” from the certified-platinum Sea Of No Cares CD.  Great Big Sea covered Trapper’s song “Everything Shines” and their version served as the debut single off their certified-gold Road Rage CD album. Chris’ songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper’s songs.

Chris Trapper’s ability to craft songs that are both elegant and accessible is evident on each solo CD in his deep Discography. There is a smart, honest quality to the lyrics that never panders. 

Trapper’s live show is a favorite among fans of alt–acoustic music. His on–stage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele. They depart the venue at the end of the evening with the sense of having been truly entertained.

“It’s an incredibly rare musician, particularly in the world of popular music, who is able to forge a career based on quiet dignity and steadfast integrity.”

OPENER:
A Fragile Tomorrow has become one of the most respected band of brothers on the road, largely thanks to their venerable work ethic, stellar musicianship, and fans in high places. The four-piece powerpop band is comprised of identical brothers Sean and Dominic Kelly, their younger brother Brendan, and Shaun Rhoades. The band will release their fourth CD “Be Nice Be Careful,” in January.  The new disc was recorded with music legend Mitch Easter as producer and Ted Comerford as co-producer. Known for his work with bands like R.E.M. and Pavement, Easter brought his trademark jangle-pop sound to the band’s compositions.

In 1965 Andrew Loog Oldham, the Rolling Stones svengali, asked filmmaker Peter Whitehead (The Fall, Tonite Let’s All Make Love in London) to accompany them on a quick tour of Ireland. Whitehead was astonished. Not only by the incredible power of the Stones’ performances but especially by the raw energy of the crowds of young people that rushed them everywhere. This new version of this behind-the scenes diary of the early Stones has never been seen; Mick Gochanour and Robin Klein, the team that brought The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus to the screen, have painstakingly restored over 90,000 frames of optical screen prints and negative, going back to the original sound tapes and 3-track live recordings. Included are electrifying performances of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “The Last Time,” and “Time is on My Side.” Charlie Is My Darling is an invaluable document, the unseen story of the band becoming the legend.

In addition the feature, the film includes an introduction with Kurt Loder, a filmmaker interview with Dave Grohl and Andrew Loog Oldham, a bonus feature on the restoration of the film, and interviews with the band members.

Some of the many themes addressed in this year’s 2nd annual Arlington International Film Festival are the skill of ‘story-telling’ as is taught and practiced in Marrakech, the historical journey of Indian sarodist, Maestro Ali Akbar Khan and his legendary music, an African-American’s journey from the segregated south to national recognition told through his carving, tooling and dyeing of pictures on leather, non-violence practiced by a little-known movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, an intimate spiritual interaction among a trio of human beings during the Holocaust… caught up in a moment of history told through performances of lieders by Schubert, Schumann and Wolf, autism and the struggle of a family to survive it’s demands, and what about the reality of reaching middle age in 2012 and not having found a partner; can we embrace this and celebrate life as it is and still feel whole?  In addition to film screenings there will be Q & A’s with filmmakers/main characters, panel discussions, special live performances and more.

The Arlington International Film Festival is much more than just a film festival; it is a celebration of cultures as well as being a platform for recognizing the common global human experience.  Please come and share these experiences with us.

MUSIC FROM THE BIG HOUSE is an extraordinary story about finding hope, joy and music behind bars. Rita Chiarelli, Canada’s Queen of the Blues, takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the Blues: Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary, a.k.a Angola Prison – formerly the bloodiest prison in America.  Rita’s trip turns into an historic jailhouse performance, playing with – rather than for – inmates serving life sentences. Their shared bond of music, and Chiarelli’s ebullient personality, draw striking revelations from the inmates. Rather than sensational stories of convicts, we witness remarkable voices of hope as their love of music radiates humanity and redemption on their quest for forgiveness. Official Film Web Site:

  “This is truly an extraordinary documentary which finds hope in the darkest of places, and the music which comes out of it is exhilarating. It’s going to be hard to find another documentary this year with as much heart as this one.” Los Angeles Examiner

  “Excuse me for gushing, but documentary filmmaking does not get any better than this. This is one of those documentaries that deserve to be seen by… everyone.” Cine Source Magazine

“Bulgaria’s songs! Aren’t they a real flame from the everlasting soul of our nation? Aren’t they the magic that has preserved Bulgaria over the centuries? My life is like a folk song. In the magic of this folk song is my desire to sing expressively and tenderly. In it are the roots of my pride in being Bulgarian.”- Tatiana Sarbinska

The range of voice in these presentations is incredible. The groups have toured the US and the Balkan region and it is a joy to watch them in their colorful ethnic costumes.

Created by Carol Campbell | Directed by Amy West | Co-Produced by Danielle Hanson & Gail Erdos to benefit Our Space, Inc.

The Goddess Diaries began as an experiment. Several women were asked to write about a specific milestone in their life as part of a Winter Solstice performance at a local church. Borrowing from the Western European agricultural wheel of the year, each monologue represents a time in the growing/harvest season; likewise, each season is a metaphor for each woman’s life event. From a seventeen-year-old’s first gynecological exam to a sixty-six-year-old’s reflection on her divorce and a tween’s exuberance over the success of her first girl-boy party, the storytellers range in age from 11 to 66.

Our Space, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to embracing children and teens who have faced or are confronting cancer by inspiring peace, spirit, and healing within a supportive community, through play, learning, and creative exploration.
Join us for a magical evening filled with love & community and be prepared to be moved, touched & inspired.

Reserved Seating, $25

In 1995, Zoso was formed to create the most mesmerizing and accurate portrayal of “the biggest band of the 1970’s” - Led Zeppelin (Rolling Stone Magazine). Each member was selected to portray both the appearance and playing styles of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones. Zoso almost immediately developed an outstanding regional reputation and were awarded “Best Tribute Act in California” by Rock City News.

In 1999, Zoso began touring nationally, playing a remarkable 2,400 live performances, honing their show to become one of the most musically and visually rewarding acts in North America. Their passion, musical ability, showmanship and precise attention to detail earned them critical acclaim, name recognition and a large loyal following. The Los Angeles Times hailed the group as being “head and shoulders above all other Zeppelin tributes,” and the Chicago Sun-Times declared Zoso to be “the closest to the original of any tribute.”

Every year since its conception, Zoso continues to play 150 - 180 high profile concerts at performance arts centers, civic centers, theaters, festivals, and universities. Since 2004, the band has been working on numerous shows with Live Nation including a rotation of 9 House of Blues venues. The four permanent members’ mastery of authentic vintage instruments coupled with spot-on vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards, their compelling stage persona and distinct Led Zeppelin sound, with astounding visual imagery recreates the music, magic, and mystery of a Zeppelin concert. Each of the timeless hit songs performed in their sets are known and loved by generations of fans.

Zoso is comprised of Matt Jernigan (Robert Plant), John McDaniel (Jimmy Page), Adam Sandling (John Paul Jones), and Greg Thompson (John Bonham),

If you missed Led Zeppelin live in the 70’s or are looking for a great chance to relive the “Hammer of the Gods” phenomenon, you must experience what the St. Petersburg Times calls “the most exacting of the Zeppelin tribute bands in existence.”

The Rise And Fall Of The Clash features previously unseen footage of the band at work and at play, interviews with the individual band members and with those who knew them well, and traces the downward trajectory of a band who were at one point “The Only Band That Matters”. This is not a film that pulls any punches, but neither does it overlook the life-changing effect that The Clash brought to so many. Over 90 minutes it paints the fascinating inside story of rival, treachery and betrayal, and the internal band dynamics and managerial interferance that ultimately led The Clash to self-destruct.
