JIMMY MAZZ RETURNS TO THE PLAYERS WITH “ DREAM LOVERS”
A tribute to Bobby Darin & Connie Francis
Sarasota, FL — On Friday, April 15th at 7:30pm, Enjoy an exciting journey through the short, yet extremely productive and creative careers of Walden Robert Cassotto, better known as Bobby Darin, and the delightful Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero, or Connie Francis as we all know her. Together, these two make a dynamic duo until Connie’s father insisted they split. Apart, solo hits by both Connie & Bobby topped the charts. Jimmy Mazz, joined by guest artist Marcy Downey, brings his own ultra-cool vibe to bring the immense talent of Bobby to life through his magnetic stage presence performing greats like “Splish Splash”, “Beyond The Sea”, “Dream Lover” , and of course “Mack The Knife”. Sammy Davis Jr. once quipped, “Bobby Darin is the only act that I never want to follow.” See and hear Bobby Darin personified as Jimmy croons, bops, scats and rocks it from the beginning right through the entire “Darin Invasion.”
Marcy Downey will melt your heart when you hear her portray one of the most beautiful and recognizable voices in modern music. Born in Newark, NJ, Connie Francis went on to become one of the most popular female vocalists to top the charts in the 1950s and 60s. With hit songs like “Lipstick On Your Collar”, “Stupid Cupid”, “Vacation”, “Where The Boys Are”, and “Who’s Sorry Now?” Marcy takes you back to an era when emotions flowed like a river as she captures every nuance of feeling and emotion that Connie delivered in her heyday.
Together, Jimmy and Marcy recapture a time when music truly touched your soul and your heart. Relive the magic today with amazing duets including: “You Make Me Feel So Young”, “It Had To Be You”, “Love Is A Many Splendored Thing”, “You’re The Top” and a super exciting rendition of “Won’t You Come Home Bill Bailey”, infused with Connie’s “Around The World” and Brenda Lee’s “Just Because”. You’ve got to see and hear this!!
