JERSEY BOYS @ NEW YORK CITY'S NEW WORLD STAGES

Jersey Boys




Performances began Wednesday for Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winning musical Jersey Boys, at New York City’s New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) Stage 1.



As previously announced, Jersey Boys stars Aaron De Jesus as Frankie Valli, Nicolas Dromard as Tommy DeVito, Mark Edwards as Nick Massi and Cory Jeacoma as Bob Gaudio. The production also includes Stephen Cerf, Andrew Frace, Natalie Gallo, Jon Hacker, Christopher Messina, Austin Owen, John Rochette, Jenna Nicole Schoen, Rachel Schur, Dru Serkes.



Tickets are on sale at the New World Stages box office or by visiting Telecharge.com. Group sales (ten or more) are available through Dodger Group Sales at 877-536-3437.



Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo. The production includes Music Supervision, Vocal/Dance Arrangements & Incidental Music by Ron Melrose and Orchestrations by Steve Orich.



Jersey Boys is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story -- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”

HELLS KITCHEN BAR 9 NY HOSTS FAMED DONNIE KEHR

Donnie Kehr




They are the only club in Hell’s Kitchen where our guests can come and see good, live music on any given night. And the wings alone are to die for.”



Bar 9 (www.bar9ny.com) owners Steven and Michael Padernacht are born and raised New Yorkers who grew up in the Bronx and now consider their atmospheric club in Hell’s Kitchen their home. “I know it may seem cliché,” Steven says, “but we truly have a Cheers type environment here.”



There’s a reason why patrons of the local and international variety both flock to Bar 9, a NYC staple for over 15 years. “People don’t think that live music and Hell’s Kitchen go together – but we have it right here, every night.” Steven considers Friday and Saturday nights to be the busiest as each week legendary Donnie Kehr (who most recently starred as Norm Waxman in the Clint Eastwood-movie adaptation of the play Jersey Boys) hosts the famed Dueling Pianos event, which just recently finished a successful run in Las Vegas but has now returned home to New York.

WORLDWIDE FOR NETFLIX'S HIT 'HOUSE OF CARDS'

****
THE GLORIOUS CORNER

Story By: G. H. HARDING
****
Kevin Spacey



KEVIN'S CARDS --- Var̬se Sarabande Records will release The House Of Cards: Season 2 РOriginal Motion Picture Soundtrack as a 2 disc set digitally and on CD June 17th. The soundtrack features original score composed by Jeff Beal (Monk, Blackfish).



Award-winning composer Jeff Beal scores House Of Cards, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning original series, starring Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright. The show debuted in February of 2013 as Netflix’s first original series, unprecedentedly releasing all 13 episodes of Season One at the same time, generating worldwide attention for the bold new approach to the television model. The second season debuted in February of this year, and it was recently picked up for a third season.



House Of Cards follows House Majority Whip Frank Underwood (Spacey), a bombastic, power-hungry politician from South Carolina set on conquering Washington D.C. alongside his wife, Claire (Wright). When the President decides to pass over Frank for a presumed appointment to Secretary of State, Underwood takes matters into his own hands by using Congress, the media, and corporate boosters as pawns in exacting revenge on those who betrayed him. Season 2 finds him installed as Vice President.



“The direction I was inspired to follow from watching the show, was to approach the project cinematic as opposed to traditional serialized television,” explained Beal.



CMT WINNERS --- Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were among top winners at the 2014 CMT Music Awards Wednesday night.



The country music hit makers won matching prizes in the categories of Male and Female Video of the Year, Blake taking home the prize for “Doin' What She Likes”, and Miranda winning the female category for “Automatic.”



Florida Georgia Line was also a big winner, taking home Duo Video of the Year (“Round Here”) and Collaborative Video of the Year (“This Is How We Roll”), with Luke Bryan, who scooped the prize for CMT Performance of the Year thanks to his collaboration with Lionel Richie on the mash-up “Oh No/All Night Long.”



Other winners included Carrie Underwood, whose video for her single “See You Again” won the coveted Video of the Year prize; The Band Perry, whose members scored Group Video of the Year thanks to the clip for their hit single “Done”; and Cassadee Pope, who won Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Wasting All These Tears.”



Performances included unexpected collaborations, including Florida Georgia Line, who kicked off the evening with Bryan and Jason DeRulo on his single “Talk Dirty to Me.” Jennifer Nettles also teamed up with John Legend for a rendition of “All of Me” and ZZ Top with Georgia Line and Bryan on “This Is How We Roll.”



Motley Crue's Vince Neil was among the presenters.



The 2014 CMT Music Awards, broadcast live from Nashville, Tennessee, was hosted by actress Kristen Bell.


Pink Floyd & Sid Barrett Story





BARRETT'S BACK --- Eagle Rock has released of The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story on 2DVD and Digital Video. Originally made in 2001, this documentary, presented in Dolby Digital Stereo, is now being released with additional bonus material.



The Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story explores the tragic, yet celebratory life of the late Syd Barrett, lead guitarist and prominent songwriter of early Pink Floyd. With contributions from all members of Floyd, as well as managers, friends, and others close to Syd, the documentary traverses the tale of this enigmatic rock legend, from his intelligent, thought-provoking songwriting and indelible stamp on the psychedelic music genre, to his 1968 departure from the band, when his increasingly erratic behavior made his continued participation in the band impossible.



This 2DVD set also includes the additional interview, Roger Waters On Syd Barrett, and a second disc with bonus uncut interviews with Floyd-members Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright.



Pink Floyd was revolutionary, pushing popular music into new cerebral dimensions, and Barrett was an integral part of the band’s sound and lyrics. A charismatic cult figure with a flair for eccentricity, he crafted such unique hits as “See Emily Play” and “Arnold Layne,” as well as album tracks such as “Bike” and “Astronomy Domine.”



His use of dissonance, feedback, and distortion in his guitar playing has inspired generations of musicians. After leaving Floyd, he recorded two solo albums before vanishing from music altogether, retiring to his English hometown of Cambridge. Fans and reporters continued to travel there to seek out the reclusive Barrett until his death in 2006, at the age of 60.



If you're a Floyd-fan … this is essential.



ZEP NEWS --- Early projections say that the reissues of Led Zeppelin's first three albums in deluxe editions are most likely headed toward top ten debuts in the U. S. next week.



On Wednesday, the Official Chart Company in the U. K. reported that, at the half-week mark, the same is holding true in Britain. At this point, Led Zeppelin I is at number 4, Led Zeppelin III is at number six and Led Zeppelin II is at number 7.



If the positions hold, the band's first album will actually better the original release in 1969 which only got to number 6. II and III were both number 1 albums.
