SHOW DESCRIPTION / INSTRUMENTATION:
BARB BAILEY is a Chicago songstress who has captivated her audiences who know her as a Music Promoter – by taking off that hat of many years – and bursting onto the Performance scene! Her latest show, “ONE HOT NIGHT”- THE UPS & DOWNS OF LOVE! is a delightful, musical concert of a single woman, growing up in show business – and all the twists and turns it has taken. She lifts the lid off her private life and reveals many sides – from hysterical to touching.
JACK WOOD and MATT BARBER play BARB’S foils – as their songs and patter back and forth are the relationship among 3 people who have lived life in the Music Business, experienced the “UPS & DOWNS OF LOVE” that come with it – and the hilarious, but rewarding, journey that they have chosen.
It’s a 90 minute show but can be expanded or condensed – to suit the venue.
The piece is accompanied by a Piano or Trio – which makes this show very easy to present.
Come hear songs you can never hear enough of – LAUGH a little; CRY a little; LOVE a lot. It all adds up to an evening of unbridled fun!!! Some songs include: The Days of Wine & Roses; Moon River; What are You doing the Rest of your Life; My Way & How Do You Keep the Music Playing.
