Phone: (906) 337-2610
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Lisa Rock and her six-piece band as they bring the music of The Carpenters back to the stage with their spot-on renditions of Carpenters classics’.
Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, the late Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music. The Carpenters songs topped the Billboard charts with more than a dozen No. 1 hits. The Music of the Carpenters is a rare gem when it comes to tribute shows. Rock describes Carpenter’s voice as pure, and lower than most female vocalists. But Rock’s amazing four octave range allows her to sing the hits like “We’ve Only Just Begun” and “Rainy Days and Mondays” in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and more recognizable for the audience.
“I hope everyone feels like singing along with us,” says Rock, who will be accompanied by talented musicians playing a variety of instruments to capture the authentic Carpenters sound. With an arsenal of number one hits at her disposal, singer and playwright Rock is sure to win over the audience and create a memorable experience filled with classic, unfor-getable songs.
