Saturday, Mar 1, 2008 • A Grand and Glorious Feeling!: The Big Broadcast of 2008 • Not a SDLI Event

Posted by Tom on 02/13/2008 • Permalink


Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera Company of Long Island Presents it’s annual Fund Raiser. A Grand and Glorious Feeling! celebrates the music of the 1920’s and 30s with 20 vocalists and the South Shore Syncopators 10-piece Dance Orchestra.

The “show”—it is more of a concert—is put together a la a 1930 radio band broadcast, the type of which was the mainstay of the airwaves of the time.  We have a few period-style commercials (for fictitious products), a little schtick here and there and some good music.  Food, wine, raffles, door prizes—I am sure you know the type of event.  It will take place at the Ethical Humanist Society in Garden City on Saturday night, March 1st at 8pm.

There are a few well-known chestnuts but also some songs that weren’t popular even when they were popular: “My Canary Has Circles Under his Eyes,” “Washing Dishes With My Sweetie” and a few others which, I suspect, are in few band’s active repertoire.

Band: Lil’ Cliff & The Cliffhangers

2006 International Blues Challenge Finalists Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are a four piece, blues harmonica driven wrecking crew. These knickerbockers have been singing, swinging and stinging Tri State area audiences for the last three plus years with their own special brand of blues power.

After winning the regional IBC competition, hosted locally by the Downstate Blues Society of Long Island, New York, these four professionals then took their special brand of original jump blues down to Memphis, Tennessee to compete in the annual International Blues Challenge. And wouldn’t you know it, out of literally hundreds of blues artists from all over the world the boys placed in the final top ten!

Fresh from this triumph Lil’ Cliff & the Cliffhangers are now out to support their latest indi-cd release “God Bless Women” on Shankbone Records. Through a comprehensive combination of live appearances up and down the Northeast corridor, radio airplay (wfdu, wwoz, wusb to name a few), local cable television appearances (Wes Houston Presents) as well as the most user friendly web site you could hope for (replete with mp3 and electronic press kit downloads) these blues boys knock ‘em out of their shoes and leave them dancin’ barefoot!
