By Niki D’Andrea
Here’s a handful of shows that were just announced this week.
Sunday, September 28, 7:30 p.m.
As a composer, Burt Bacharach has few rivals. Since 1957, he’s written music for more than 70 Top 40 hits in the U.S., and his songs have been recorded by innumerable stars including Dionne Warwick, Perry Como, Johnny Mathis, The Beatles, The Carpenters, Aretha Franklin, Tom Jones, Dusty Springfield, The Stranglers, Gene Pitney, and Luther Vandross. Among his fans are luminaries like Elvis Costello, Steely Dan’s Donald Fagen, Jimmy Webb, and Oasis.
Random band fact: Bacharach has had cameo roles in all three Austin Powers movies.
