Michael McDonald

PRE-SALE: Wed, July 27 at 10AM
ON SALE: Fri, July 29 at 10AM

Two notes. That’s all it takes to recognize the voice of Michael McDonald. Distinctive and soulful, it is one of the most yearningly emotive instruments of our times. To this add formidable songwriting and keyboard skills, and you have an artist who has been a singular musical presence for four decades. From ‘70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as “What A Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” through two highly-acclaimed Motown albums, genre-busting guest spots and innovative concept shows, the five-time Grammy Award winning McDonald is both timeless and ever-evolving.

Beyond his music, McDonald has long been an active humanitarian. He has lent his talents and energies to many causes and benefits, including MusiCares, the National Council of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, the 7UP Grammy Signature Schools Program and was part of a star-studded lineup at Kokua For Japan, a concert that raised $1.6 million for tsunami relief.

After moving from his hometown of St. Louis to Los Angeles in the early ‘70s, McDonald honed his talent as a session musician and singer before being invited to join Steely Dan. Over the course of four classic albums, from Katy Lied to Gaucho, McDonald became an integral part of the group’s sound, singing background vocals on FM staples like “Black Friday” and “Peg.”

In the mid-‘70s, McDonald joined The Doobie Brothers, helping the band redefine their funky R & B sound as a singer, keyboardist and songwriter on such Top 40 singles as “Takin’ It To The Streets,” “It Keeps You Runnin’,” “Minute By Minute” and “What A Fool Believes.”

His distinct vocal style also made him one of the world’s most sought-after session singers. Beyond his hits with The Doobies, McDonald has lent his voice to records by an A-Z of artists, including Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Vince Gill and Grizzly Bear. During the ‘80s and ‘90s, his solo career zoomed from success to success on the wings of evergreen hits like “Sweet Freedom,” “On My Own” (a duet with Patti LaBelle) and the Grammy-winning duet with James Ingram “Yah Mo B There.”

Continuing to explore new vistas, McDonald released his Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling pair of Motown albums in 2003. Then in 2005, he partnered with Hallmark for a special Christmas album, Through The Many Winters, which sold 500,000 copies in its first two weeks.

In 2008 McDonald released the acclaimed crossover album Soul Speak (which hit three different charts simultaneously), and in 2011 received an honary doctorate from Berklee School of Music. Recently he and co-horts Donald Fagen and Boz Scaggs an 11-piece soul supergroup who tour as The Dukes Of September, released their first live DVD.
McDonald continues to tour extensively as a solo artist, with symphonies, altruistic events and plans to tour this summer with Toto.

With a career that encompasses five Grammys, numerous chart successes, personal and professional accolades, as well as collaborations with some of the world’s most prominent artists, Michael McDonald remains an enduring force in popular music.

Vienna Boys Choir

The angelic-voiced musicians of the Vienna Boys Choir celebrate the magic of the holiday season with a delightful program of Austrian folk songs, classical masterpieces, Christmas hymns, and holiday carols. For six centuries, these young cultural ambassadors have been adored the world over for their wide range of repertoire, purity of tone, and generosity of musical spirit

The Wiener Sängerknaben or Vienna Boys' Choir (sometimes translated Vienna Choir Boys) is the world's foremost children's choral group. It is also among the oldest of all musical organizations, having been founded pursuant to an Imperial decree of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I on July 7, 1498; the Emperor wished boys' voices to be added to the choir of the Imperial Chapel, or
Hofkapelle. This established a tradition of having the boys sing in weekly Sunday masses in the Imperial Chapel of the Hofburg Palace in Vienna, a tradition that continues today.

 

Over the centuries, illustrious composers have written masterpieces for the Boys' Choir of the Imperial Chapel, including Mozart, Bruckner, Gluck, and Schubert. Many great musicians got their start as members of the Boys' Choir; among them were the great conductors Hans Richter, Clemens Krauss, and Lovro von Matacic. During the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the choir became renowned for its secular performances as well, appearing in colorful Imperial-style military uniforms, each complete with a dagger. After World War I, wide popular and governmental disfavor of all things Imperial resulted in the dissolution of many long-standing institutions, including the Imperial Chapel Choir. However, Chaplain Joseph Schnitt remained in his position at the chapel and re-gathered the choir. Sparing no personal expense, he re-established a boarding school for the choristers. He replaced the imperial uniforms with a distinctive sailor-style uniform.

 

The Vienna Boys' Choir has the most stringent training and admittance policy in the world. Boys wishing to join must first gain entrance to a preparatory school where they receive a complete elementary education. Their instruction includes elements of musical theory, sight-singing, and the practice of singing, and instruction on at least one instrument; at the age of nine, they have to pass an examination based strictly on musical ability and vocal quality. There is no religious requirement. The teaching is purposely intensive in order that their education not be slighted due to the frequent touring. There are usually two choirs away on a tour at any given time, most frequently for three months. They are accompanied by their choirmaster, their tutor, and a nurse. Vienna Choir Boys have visited the United States well in excess of 50 times since 1932 and have traveled to all six inhabited continents. They are beloved the world over for their lively singing style and beautiful tone and have commissioned a number of new works, including Britten's The Golden Vanity.

Paul D'Angelo

Who is the comedian/writer/actor that The Los Angeles Times calls "…quite likely the funniest entertainer you've never heard of… yet"?

Paul Murphy spent ten and a half years as an Assistant District Attorney, supervising several of Massachusetts’s busiest courthouses, before building a reputation as a noted criminal-defense trial attorney. The unexpected twist to this story is that, for nine of those years, under the pseudonym of Paul D’Angelo, Paul was simultaneously becoming one of the nation’s top standup comedians.

While maintaining a full-time legal career, Paul rose from open-miker to headliner in less than six months and was selected to host his own weekly show at Boston’s two premier comedy clubs, Nick’s Comedy Stop and the Comedy Connection, for six and two years respectively. In 1989 Paul had the honor of being chosen as a national finalist representing Boston in the Johnny Walker Comedy Search and was named "Boston’s Best Comedian" in 1994 and 1995 by Boston Magazine… no insignificant feat in a city which has produced enormously successful comedy stars such as Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Paula Poundstone, Steven Wright, Anthony Clarke, Bobcat Goldthwait and Denis Leary. In 1997, Paul was honored to be invited as a feature performer at the Montreal ‘Just for Laughs’ International Comedy Festival. Paul was also a national finalist in the 1999 San Francisco International Comedy Competition; he was a national finalist representing Boston in the 'Laughs Across America' comedy search sponsored by the Las Vegas Comedy Festival; and he was also a national finalist, chosen from among thousands of contestants across the country, in the 2005 Sierra Mist / Improv 'Next Great Comic Search'. In addition, Paul is the writer/director/co-star of the original sitcom pilot 'A Fine Mess' which was featured at the prestigious New York International Independent Film Festival in 2002.
He is currently co-starring in Showtime’s  'Godfathers of Comedy' stand-up comedy special directed by Rocco Urbisci.

Paul’s has entertained many prominent corporate clients throughout the nation including Ford Motor Co., MITA Corp., Sony Music Corp., Hasbro / Milton-Bradley Corp., Hewlett-Packard Corp., Fidelity Investments, American Airlines, Delta Airlines, Bike Athletic Corp., Nike-Bauer International and the Burger King Corporation. In addition, Paul has performed at casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, on Norwegian Cruise Lines, and at many colleges including Harvard University, Lehigh University, UNH, Boston University and U. Massachusetts.

As evidence of his adaptability, Paul has been selected to open up for over fifty internationally known recording artists as diversified as rhythm and blues greats Ray Charles, the Four Tops, the Temptations and Patti LaBelle; rock and roll legends Huey Lewis and the News, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Beach Boys, Chicago, the Righteous Bros., Aretha Franklin and Hall & Oates; country-western stars Lyle Lovett, Tanya Tucker and the Oakridge Boys; comedians George Carlin, Joan Rivers and Dennis Miller; and mature artists such as Tony Bennett, Englebert Humperdinck and Bobby Vinton, in various theater venues accommodating audiences of up to 5000+ people.

While living in Hollywood, CA, Paul appeared regularly at the Hollywood Improvisation and Laugh Factory and performed as a headliner at the Ice House and the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, CA, arguably the country’s most discriminating non-showcase stand-up comedy venue that regularly features performers such as Jay Leno, Bill Maher, Gary Shandling, Ray Romano, Howie Mandel, Arsenio Hall and Richard Jeni.

Lenny Clarke

Veteran Boston stand-up comedian Lenny Clarke has an oddly calibrated act — his material and his perspective is very much in an old-school Don Rickles vein, but his attitude is very much that of a quick-witted young comic. This contrast comes wrapped in a conversational, deceptively genial delivery, with just brief moments of clowning. Clarke is also unpredictable in a very good way on stage — you don’t know where he’s going to go next. It’s never the same show twice. He’s a unique and funny performer … truly worth catching. — NYC Review
