    Singin In The Rain Jr.

    Singin’ In The Rain JR. has all the makings of a Tinseltown tabloid headline – the starlet, the leading man and a love affair that could change lives and make or break careers! In silent movies, Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are a hot item, but behind the scenes things aren’t always as they appear on the big screen! Meanwhile, Lina’s squeaky voice might be the end of her career in “talking pictures” without the help of a talented young actress to do the talking and singing for her.

    Three extraordinary roles for young dancers and a tour de force comedic turn make Singin’ In The Rain JR. a perfect choice for any group with an abundance of talent ready to shine.

    Tickets may be purchased with Bay Area Children’s Theatre at 510-296-4433.

    Luther Vandross Tribute Featuring Ray McCoy

    Ray McCoy has been singing for his whole life, but mostly in places where no one could hear. Seven years ago, when the calling and the purpose became greater than his desire for solitude, Ray was moved to reveal his overwhelming passion for singing. This passion can be found from start to finish in Ray’s Luther Vandross Tribute Show, while performing original Vandross classics including many of his well known ballads and love songs such as So Amazing, Here and Now, A House Is Not A Home, and Superstar.

    In 2010 KBLX Radio celebrated the group as the Event of the Year for their performance at the Dunsmuir Mansion House in Oakland. That same year, the band performed Sundays In The Redwood at The Woodminster Amphitheater alongside season headliners Pete Escovedo, Goapele, The Oakland East Bay Symphony, Angie Stone, and George Duke.
