Iconic musicians are often difficult to replicate because of their unique attributes, from Elvis Presley's curled lip to David Crosby's tie-dyed mustache. Study artists from the past with today's GrouponLive deal to see Under the Streetlamp, presented by the River Grove School Education Foundation at the auditorium of East Leyden High School in Franklin Park. For $20, you get one ticket for balcony seating on Saturday, February 25, at 7:30 p.m. (a $40 value). Seating will be based on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Under the Streetlamp pries open America's songbook of radio hits, belting out timeless sing-alongs. After fueling the Chicago run of the Tony Award–winning musical Jersey Boys, the old-school quartet has reconvened on stage, determined to resurrect the sounds of the ‘60s and twirl listeners back to an era of peace, love, and vinyl housepets. Unabashed head-bobbing sweeps through East Leyden High School's auditorium as rock 'n’ roll anthems, doo-wop jingles, and golden oldies soar from the band's vault, courtesy of legendary hitmakers such as The Beatles and The Beach Boys. A seven-piece ensemble backs the harmonized vocals with rollicking piano, crystalline guitar, and horns that burst forth with bombast during the rockers and slow to a dreamy sway for the ballads. The vocalists also regale audiences with whimsical choreography and amusing story banter between the songs. Adding to the evening's feel-good vibes, the River Grove School Education Foundation presents the performance as part of its continuing mission to generate funds for local educational programs.
