Nostalgia buffs should attend the I Write the Songs: Celebrating the Genius of Barry Manilow concert at Moraine Valley Community College April 8, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Wester Inn Plus Midway Hotel!
I Write the Songs: Celebrating the Genius of Barry Manilow is a tribute show starring Jim Witter and his band. Jim Witter is a Canadian country music singer songwriter. His first tribute show, The Piano Men, a tribute to Elton John and Billy Joel, was a smash hit. He has won three Canadian Country Music Awards.
Songs like “Mandy”, “Could It Be Magic”, “Weekend In New England”, and “Even Now” are just a few of the hits you’ll hear in all of their Manilow glory. Get ready for lots of audience participation too, and lots of laughs during songs like “Copa Cabana” where some lucky audience members become the stars of the song on the giant screen behind Jim and the band! Learn about some of the TV jingles that Barry wrote that you perhaps weren’t aware of, but know intimately. The lyrics for the songs appear on the screen behind, so be prepared to sing.
The Dorothy Menker Theatre at Moraine Valley Community College is located at 9000 College Parkway in Palos Hills.
