Bellamy Brothers

October 28, 2017

Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks and Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and previously-the Judds. But before the road forked into country, the musical odyssey of brothers Bellamy started creatively smoldering in their home state of Florida, before exploding nationally amidst the ’70’s pop music culture of L.A. The Bellamy Brothers latest project is their new album titled ’40 Years’ is an ambitious project that celebrates their career with 20 of their biggest hits and then adds 20 brand new songs in this 2 cd anniversary collection. bellamybrothers.com

 

 

Opera Idaho Presents Gaetano Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore

November 3, 2017

One of opera’s most endearing comedies, L’elisir d’amore features tenor Thomas Glenn and the country-bumpkin Nemorino, Christopher Job as the slippery Dulcamara and the Boise baritone Jason Detwiler as the braggadocious Belcore. This production has been updated to the late 1940s or early 1950s. The setting, Adina’s Nightclub at the end of the USO nightclub craze, allows the drama to unfold both “onstage” and “offstage” as we watch big production numbers, as well as intimate moments. Adina is the proprietor of the nightclub and their star chanteuse. Nemorino is the janitor, smitten with his boss. Gianetta is the head waiter and leader of the club’s chorus. Dulcamara is a traveling snake-oil salesman who has come to town with his two assistants. And Belcore is an army officer on leave before his deployment. This production, originally staged for the Resonance Works Pittsburg, won the American Prize in Opera Performance in 2015. operaidaho.org

Archuleta’s self-titled album, “David Archuleta,” went gold, selling more than 750,000 copies in the U. S. and more than 900,000 worldwide. “It was so neat to see how positive fans were about ‘Crush,” David said of the enthusiastic reception for his chart debut.

Since his return he’s traveled to the Middle East to perform for U.S. troops, recorded the song “Glorious” for the “Meet The Mormons” movie, and recently released his new album – EP Orion. davidarchuleta.com

Collin Raye Christmas

December 16, 2017

What started with the simple desire to entertain has turned into something that is almost a holy calling for Collin Raye. Raye was one of the true hit makers in the 1990s. Collin still continues to crank out soulful, heartfelt material with the honesty and richness that is signature to his vocals alone. With 24 top ten records, 16 #1 hits, and having been a 10 time male vocalist of the year nominee (5 CMA and 5 ACM), this truly electrifying performer of his era remains one of the great voices of our time. “In the beginning, I wanted hits and all that,” he reflects. “But what drives me now is what music means to people. Songs have landed on me that made me realize there’s more to this than I thought. It’s about entertaining people one minute and healing them the next. It’s kinda like a ministry.” collinraye.com
