REGIONAL RADIO GROUP & DAVIDSON BROTHERS BREW PUB PRESENT BARBRA AND FRANK, THE CONCERT THAT NEVER WAS

March 2nd 2019



It is unlikely that the two powerhouse voices of the century would have ever shared the same stage… until now! They never worked together, exactly, except when they taped a duet in separate recording sessions, but it’s tantalizing to think what it would have been like to have Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra teamed up for a concert tour. Just imagine the possibilities. Would one have outshone the other? Would the onstage banter been friendly or a bit snippy? In the Las Vegas hit show, “Barbra and Frank”, the rapport of these two 20th century icons is immediately prevalent. “As good as the music is, the banter between the stars is equally memorable.” Today, Sharon and David captivate audiences worldwide with their originally self-produced Las Vegas show that brings laughter, tears and joy to every person watching. David’s crooning sounds of Sinatra bring “memories” to an audience who remembers the late great “ol’ blue eyes” himself. While the uncanny looks of Sharon brings out the “Funny Girl” herself, Streisand, does it the only way show knows how… Her Way.

NOTE: Tickets for this event purchased with Visa, Discover or MasterCard will carry a $2.00/Per Ticket Service Charge. Tickets purchased with Cash, Check or Gift Card will not incur this fee.

A NIGHT OF COMEDY WITH NICK DI PAOLO

Friday March 8th at 8PM


PRESENTED AS PART OF THE COMEDY WORKS AT THE WOOD SERIES!
In this day of watered down comedy Nick Di Paolo's brutally honest performances remind us of what great stand up should be - funny, socially relevant and a little bit reckless.

His strong political opinions and razor wit make him a perfect fit for talk radio. He hosted his own shows on New York’s 92.3 Free FM, “The Nick Di Paolo Show” on SiriusXM, co-hosted “The Nick & Artie Show” and currently hosts “The Nick Di Paolo Show”, streaming LIVE M-Th 6pm ET at nickdip.com

He has performed on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Conan O’ Brien. He was twice nominated for an Emmy for his writing on HBO’s The Chris Rock Show. He has also had three half hour standup specials on Comedy Central, a Showtime Special “Raw Nerve”, a self released special “Another Senseless Killing” and most recently “Inflammatory”. He was one of the stars on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and a stand out on many Comedy Central Roasts.

Not limited to stand-up, radio and writing, he has had acting roles on FX’s Louie, Inside Amy Schumer, The Sopranos, Cop Show and CK’s critically acclaimed Horace and Pete as well as many other sitcoms.
