DUNCAN FAURE

duncan faure head shot  After a successful double CD in 2011 entitled "Anthology" Duncan is back in the studio in San Francisco working on a new 12-track CD due out later this year!  Ten of the songs will be new Faure material and two will be John Lennon songs; "Imagine" and "Tennessee." 

Faure says of the "Tennessee" cut:  "Tennessee is an almost unheard Lennon song - the words enough to make any American's weekend swing." 

Faure is also working on two new projects:  "Elton John - A Celebration in Music" (working title) and "John Lennon - A Celebration in Music" (working title).  Both projects are ready for bookings.

More from Duncan Faure soon...in the meantime be sure to call or email Jeffrey Bowen for booking information.

THE MIDTOWN MEN

the midtown men Starbooker Presents brought The Midtown Men, four stars from the original cast of Jersey Boys to Raleigh as Headline Entertainment for WakeMed Foundation's Gala at the Raleigh Convention Center.

Formed in 2007, The Midtown Men are currently in the middle of a two-year, 77-city US tour selling out theatres and symphony halls!  This was a nostalgic evening musically transporting everyone attending the 52nd Anniversary WakeMed event back to the '60s and had Doctors and CEO's dancing the night away. 

The Midtown Men:  Christian Hoff, Michael Longoria, Daniel Reichard, and J. Robert Spencer’s self-titled debut album has been met with critical acclaim and garnered five star album reviews on iTunes.  The album was recorded in New York City and features the group performing iconic '60s hits such as "Up on the Roof." "Candy Girl," "Time of the Season," and more.  As quoted from their website:  www.themidtownmen.com The Raleigh Convention Center was alive with what The Midtown Men do best; helping to keep alive "iconic" music from the '60's in the 21st Century with a new "twist."

Starbooker Presents was thrilled to be able to bring them to Raleigh for the first time.
