This is a one-man, multi-media performance of (mostly) music with sights, sounds, celebrities, politics, fashion, pop culture and news-of-that-day, presented by Gary Rue.
Rue offers up a video montage of 60's era product advertisements, news of the times, (international, national, regional AND local), poignant commentary with his off-the-wall spin (often hilarious), and performs the hits from the day.
Available as a solo performance (show) or with a quintet of musicians.
Concert Presentations for Theaters & Performing Art Centers: All ages and especially folks who were coming of age in the 60s (ages 65-75)
Ideal for Academic Presentation as a Concert/Masterclass: History, Music and Political Science departments.
