The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

In Big Band history, Tommy Dorsey’s Orchestra is recognized as one of the best all-around dance bands. It could swing with the best of them, and no other band could come close to Tommy’s when it came to playing ballads. Tommy Dorsey, “The Sentimental Gentleman of Swing,” was a master at creating warm, sentimental, and always musical moods – at superb dancing and listening tempos. Tommy sustained these moods through the arrangements of Paul Weston, Axel Stordahl, and Sy Oliver, and showcased singers who could project them brilliantly.

Syd Straw @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

Syd Straw is an actress/producer/singer/songwriter who’s worked with nearly everyone, including Emmylou Harris, Rickie Lee Jones, Wilco, Golden Palominos, and Los Lobos. She tries to love everyone, especially dogs. New band: Bitchface.

Straw is an enormously gifted vocalist and songwriter who has her own distinct musical vision. She first made a name for herself as part of the Golden Palominos, a band led by Anton Fier that enjoyed a cult following in the 1980s. Her Capricorn Records debut, War and Peace, was released in 1996, and since then, her unique blend of folk-rock and blues-rock has found a home with Triple A (adult album alternative) radio stations and their audiences around the country. Straw released Surprise in 1990 to good reviews. That recording chronicled Straw’s emergence as a songwriter; she had thought of herself primarily as a song interpreter before that. On Surprise, Straw was joined by Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), John Doe (X), Ry Cooder, Daniel Lanois, Don Was, Richard Thompson, and Marshall Crenshaw.

The Flying Karamazov Brothers @ Greenwich Odeum | East Greenwich | Rhode Island | United States

The Flying Karamazov Brothers are a continuing experiment in comedy, theatre, music and, of course, juggling group. From the beginning, it has been their intention to blend the worlds of performance art, improvisation, word play, harmony, emotion and above all virtuosity into a unique form of theatre and entertainment.

And they mean to entertain. Taking their cue from Shakespeare, they bring art and accessible entertainment to the stage. Comedy is their bread and butter and they layer it on so that children of two or ninety-two will laugh at the same moment for very different reasons.

Each of the Brothers brings his area of expertise to their enterprise. Mark Ettinger (Alexei) is our resident musician, composer and conductor. Rod Kimball (Pavel) is the master juggler. Paul Magid (Dmitri) is the writer, director, and founder. Stephen Bent (Zossima) is exceptionally tall and adorable.

The Flying Karamazov Brothers play at the edge of their ability but to a purpose. Their main contention is that errors make them human but by working together they approach the divine. For them juggling is dropping.

They continue to grow and learn. Their intention is expand the horizons of comedy and entertainment.
