Fanatics Presents: Mary Fahl in Concert – from the October Project @ The Geneseo Riviera
Oct 20 @ 7:00 pm

“Sounding like no other singer of her generation” (Allmusic.com), Mary Fahl is an expressive, emotional singer/songwriter who first achieved fame as lead singer and co-founder of the mid-1990s NYC- based chamber-pop group October Project. The hallmark of their sound was Mary Fahls awe-inspiring power vocals over gorgeous melodies played with passion and sophistication. As a solo artist, Mary has released several compelling albums, including the fantastic re-working of Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon for V2 Records and her wonderful, original studio album The Other Side of Time on Sony Odyssey.  She has also written and performed songs for several major motion pictures, including the lead song (Going Home) for the Civil War epic Gods and Generals.  Her most recent album Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House, winner of the Indie Acoustic Album of the Year award, is a collection of twenty-four tracks recorded live at one of Americas oldest vaudeville theaters that captures the soaring, soul-permeating vocals and musical breadth that makes the Mary Fahl concert experience what the Portland Press called soul-permeating.  The show was filmed for PBS and is currently airing on PBS affiliates around the country. Fahl’s elegant, cinematic songs draw on classical and world music sources, American art song, as well as thinking mans folk-pop which she performs with an earthy, viscerally powerful contralto that Boston Globe critic Steve Morse calls a voice for the gods that can transport listeners to other realms. Her music appeals to a wide range of musical enthusiasts, including a large, loyal fan base of Mary Fahl evangelists.

Doors open at 6 PM.

Fanatics Presents: Albert Cummings @ The Geneseo Riviera
Oct 26 @ 8:00 pm

Live at the Geneseo Riviera! Doors open at 7 PM. Tickets are $25.00 and $30 for VIP table service ($29 and $34 at door).

The blues is best served up live, with an enthusiastic audience and a killin’ band, and that’s exactly what guitarist Albert Cummings does[…]. Cummings effortlessly shifts from chimney subdued stylings to raucous roadhouse raunch to soaring yet stinging lead lines, driving his audience to frenzy in all the right places.” – Guitar Edge Magazine
Albert Cummings writes, plays and sings the blues like nobody else. He has played with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy. Taken with Albert’s fire and passion bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton, of the band Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm section, volunteered to play on and produce his solo debut recording, 2003’s self-released From the Heart. B.B. King dubbed Cummings “a great guitarist.”

Detailed Description: Rodgers and Hart’s Babes in Arms features an outstanding score including such standards as “My Funny Valentine,” “I Wish I Were in Love Again,” and “The Lady is a Tramp.” Set during the Great Depression, a group of teens, left behind while their parents are on tour performing, emulate their elders by putting on a show to support themselves. The kids try on political philosophies and challenge social ideologies of the 1930’s as they navigate past the sheriff’s attempts to send them to a work farm and face the challenges inherent in putting on their show.

Babes in Arms is produced by the Musical Theatre program of the SUNY Geneseo Music Department. A “page to stage” show, it features all musical theatre majors in a production focused on the work of the performer as singer, dancer, and actor, with minimal visual support and a piano accompaniment. Student performers are Katelyn Brooks, Erin Burris, Miranda Calarco, Erica Milliman, Brian Sousis, Mick Elliott, Brett Hammes, Patrick Jones, Annie Levine, Sydney Lyons, Tristan Strasser, Ben Bernstein, Kat Berton, Kyle Johnson, Sandra Kralik, Kayla McGallian, Roy Nardone, and Kelsey Roberts, with stage management by Zack Engel. In addition to the musical theatre majors, this production features four faculty members in the roles of parents: Gerry Floriano, Joan Floriano, Pam Kurau, and Kurt Fletcher. Musical direction is by Don Kot and stage direction and choreography by Melanie Blood.
