Whether you remember exactly where you were when you heard your favorite song, or you are experiencing it all for the first time, Decades Rewind will connect you to the power of the greatest hits of the 60s, 70s, and 80s! Decades Rewind is a high energy theatrical concert experience that features the disco, funk, rock, Motown, and pop hits that defined the best period in music history. With more than 60 songs, 100 costume changes, and tons of nostalgic video that bring you back in time, Decades Rewind is the live concert experience that you’ve been waiting your entire life for. Some of you will be compelled to get up and dance, others will sing along and sway to the unforgettable sounds of rock ‘n roll history as it unfolds before your ears and eyes. Everyone will leave the show feeling uplifted, happy, and energized by this musical journey through time. Our show is so good that it will make you feel as though you have been transported back to the time when this music was hitting its peak of power, passion, and creativity. Our group of world-class singers and musicians put their all into every single note. They have loved these songs their entire lives, just like you, and their enthusiasm for rock, soul, disco, and Motown’s greatest hits has only grown through the years.
The show is phenomenal. Some of us from the Sarasota Post saw the show last year at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and we loved it. We’re going back to see the show on January 19th and hope to see many of our friends there.
The cast features some very special folks from our area: Peter Gatti (co-founder, producer and keyboardist), and Mark Blinkhorn (co-founder and drummer), Lisa Larkin (she not only sings but does some great acting), guitarists Al Owen and Jimmy DeLisi, and our good friend, Leo Binetti, on bass with so many more wonderful talented musicians and actors from across the country.
