KAWARTHA LAKES-For one week only, join Rick Kish, Connor Boa and the Nevin Campbell Trio for two hours of hit after hit; great stories and swingin‘ tunes. The Crooner Show celebrates songs made famous by some of the greatest chanteurs of all time – from Sinatra to Bublé & a whole lot in between.
Rick Kish & Connor Boa (The CROONERS) & Nevin Campbell (Pianist) are 2023 Forest City London Music Awards Nominees and will appear on the Lakeview Arts Barn stage June 6th – 10th as part of Globus Theatre’s 20th season.
“We are not a tribute act, rather we are honouring the crooners who sang these songs,” explains Rick Kish, show creator and performer. “It’s very intimate and brings the audience in to feel as if they’re part of the show. We are THRILLED to be bringing this show to Globus.”
The Crooner Show ensemble is full of experienced musicians. Winner and three-time nominee of Best Jazz Vocalist at the London Music Awards, Rick Kish has created, produced, and performed in a variety of Jazz/Swing/Musical Theatre shows for decades. Rick has performed onstage at the Grand Theatre in London, Huron County Playhouse, Drayton Festival Theatre, Port Stanley Festival Theatre, Blyth Festival Theatre, and Bluewater Summer Playhouse.
Connor Boa has crooned together with Rick Kish for almost 10 years. Connor has appeared in LINK theatre & concerts Saucy Jack & the Space Vixens (twice) & JUDY: Stonewalled! With The Grand Theatre in London, his credits include Les Miserables, Hello Dolly, The Addams Family: A New Musical, My Fair Lady, Much Ado About Nothing & Julius Caesar.
Rounding out the company is the Nevin Campbell Trio comprised of Nevin Campbell who prior to this spent years performing on Holland America and Celebrity cruise ships; Larry Ernewein who has spent over 40 years touring Canada and the US as a classic rock bassist; and Sandy MacKay, drummer for the Juno-nominated Oliver Whitehead Quintet who has appeared at Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto DuMaurier, and Montreaux-Detroit Jazz Festivals.
“Our venue, the Lakeview Arts Barn, is a great spot for a show like this and I know our audiences appreciate great music and talent, which is exactly what Rick, Connor and the band will bring! The show premiered at Port Stanley Festival Theatre which has a similar vibe and audience demographic to Globus, audiences there have demanded the Crooners return again and again, so I thoroughly look forward to introducing our patrons here in Bobcaygeon to this wonderful night of great entertainment!” Sarah Quick, Globus Theatre Artistic Director
