It’s not even December yet and OneRepublic has already given us the best gift. Listen to the bands cover of the classic 'White Christmas' and read @emilygrinberg's thoughts on it at the link in our bio ⬆️
We’re getting excited for The Christmas Show, premiering in just two weeks and starring @nikkireneesings. We’ll be giving you snippets of songs and videos you can look forward to and add to your own holiday playlist. Here’s a favorite of ours from White Christmas...
‘Frank Sinatra refused to perform his one ballad, "Adelaide," in character as the comic, Bronx-accented Nathan Detroit, turning on all his romantic crooner charm instead, and composer Frank Loesser was less than pleased with the star's turn in the comic "Sue Me" number. ("We'll do it my way or you can f**k off," he reportedly told Loesser.) When Marlon Brando pointed out to director Joseph L. Mankiewicz that he should tell Sinatra how to sing his songs ("We can't have two romantic leads," Brando allegedly said), Mankiewicz refused. Brando swore never to work with him again, and he never did.’ - @imdb
The show I saw tonight @justacoupleofsonganddancemen pays tribute to these 4 extraordinary entertainers,Gene Kelly,Fred Astaire,Bing Crosby and Donald O'Conner.
What a time to be alive it would have been back then. If I wasn't already a fan of this era,I definitely would be now.
Old Hollywood was when movies and television were at their best. I would have loved being around when these guys were.
From the time the show started till I left the theatre and now,I'm still smiling. One of the cast members said to me that he could see me smiling. I was only in the second row but still.
A fantastic,fantastic show. So glad I found out about this little gem. Sometimes the best shows aren't the ones with the big budgets,glamourous costumes and a cast of thousands. Sometimes the best shows are those with a cast of 2 and a 3 piece band.
This show started last night but only runs until November 25th. I urge anyone that loves musicals or old Hollywood to see it while you can. You can not miss this. You'll leave with a smile on your face and be dancing all the way home. You might learn something too,like how the title song from Singin' in The Rain was originally intended to be sung by the films 3 main stars but ended up being Gene Kelly's solo number. How it took 7 days to film the sequence during which Gene was sick the whole time because he was getting rained on for 6 hours a day.
Speaking of being sick,I hope you feel better soon @mikeyhal.#justacoupleofsonganddancemen#fredastaire#bingcrosby#genekelly#donaldoconnor#oldhollywood#musical#musicaltheatre#chapeloffchapel
I had the great pleasure last month of performing with local jazz singer @kristensmigs at the historic Carnegie Art Center! Having 5 talented musicians backing us up was quite the experience! The jazz scene in Buffalo is growing day by day, and there is a lot of young talent keeping the old standards around! Be sure to follow Kristen so you can catch her upcoming events!🎵🎤🎷

Happy Birthday to the “sensational” Grace Kelly, born on this day in 1929.
Here she is with Frank Sinatra in HIGH SOCIETY (1956).
“What you require
Is the proper squire
To fire your heart
And if you say
That one fine day
You'll let me come to call
We'll have a ball
'Cause you're sensational, sensational
That's all, that's all, that's all...”

“I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished useful deeds, and who was a kind and loving person. I would like to leave the memory of a human being with a correct attitude and who did her best to help others.” - Grace Kelly 🎨 @colorizedvintage 🎨
