Yesterday and Today - The Interactive Beatles Experience

Stars of Yesterday and Today, Billy, Ryan and Matthew McGuigan were just 21, 18 and 15 years old in 1996 when their father, William (Bill) McGuigan, passed away, after a difficult, but courageous battles with Leukemia.

Bill owned every Beatles album there was…even the obscure ones. However, as a family, the McGuigans were quite poor. So, rather than going out to entertain the young ones, Bill stayed home with them and shared his love of the Beatles catalogue with his boys. Little did any of them know, it would turn out to be one of the greatest gifts a father could pass on to his children.

Billy, Matthew and Ryan united their musical talents, charms and passion for performing to create the ultimate living tribute to the greatest man they’ve ever known. Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience was born out of the idea that everyone, like themselves, has a story or particular memory attached to the legendary music of The Beatles.

What the McGuigan boys have overwhelmingly found, since debuting the show in 2007, is that not only do people have a story to tell, but they are absolutely ready and willing to tell that story when being able to tie it to their favorite Beatles song. On some level, it goes beyond sheer entertainment, and perhaps becomes a hint of music therapy.

Every night the songs change, the faces change and the stories change. But one element always remains the same between the McGuigans and their fans. A mutual respect for why they are there. Whether it’s for the sheer love of the music, or to have a personal connection with it, either way, the McGuigan boys get to do what they love most – honoring the memory of their greatest hero, and the priceless gift he gave them so many years ago.

This promises to be a energetic night. Have a look preview link.

The Wonder Bread Years starring Pat Hazell

Pat Hazell, a talented comedian, has left audiences in stitches with his humor.

Let’s delve into his fascinating journey: Pat Hazell hails from Omaha, Nebraska. He began his entertainment career by teaching himself magic tricks and juggling. Comedy became his defense mechanism, allowing his acts to thrive. To pursue stand-up comedy, he left behind magic and juggling.

Hazell’s big break came when he became an opening act for Jerry Seinfeld. His chance to perform on “The Tonight Show” was akin to an athlete making it to the Olympics. He appeared on the show seven times, six of those with Jay Leno after he took over from Johnny Carson. Despite a mortifying moment when he forgot a line during one performance, Hazell bounced back and continued to grace the late-night stage.

His contributions to “Seinfeld” solidified his reputation as a skilled writer and comedian. He also conducted performances at art centers across the country.

You will be leaving this show laughing.

The show culminated in 2003 with both Grammy and Tony award nominations.

Michael began playing at age seven, when his parents bought their first piano.  Encouraged by family and friends, and inspired by his hero Billy Joel, Michael formed his first band at age 10 and began playing local functions, fine-tuning the craft that would become his chosen career. His first full-time gig as a musician was an extended engagement in Orlando, Florida, at a piano bar called Blazing Pianos. In January of 1999, Michael received an offer that would unknowingly change his life: an opportunity to play Las Vegas at the famed New York, New York Hotel and Casino. It was there that Billy Joel spotted Michael and joined him on stage one fateful night of February 2001.  It only took two songs before Billy was convinced that he had found his new Piano Man: Michael Cavanaugh. Michael closed up shop at New York, New York and moved to New York City to work alongside Billy Joel and Twyla Tharp to shape the Broadway Musical that would be called Movin’ Out.  In the lead role, he received both Tony and Grammy nominations.
