Tony Starlight’s Tribute to Television
A comprehensive tribute to the idiot box with the All-Star Horns!
Ernie Kovacs once quipped, “Television is a medium, so called because it is neither rare nor well-done.” This may be true, but TV THEME SONGS ARE GREAT! Through music, monologues and sing-alongs, Tony will take you on a journey through the wonderful world of television and the era of classic theme songs. “The Greatest American Hero”, “Mary Tyler Moore”, “Wonder Woman”, “The Love Boat”, “Cheers” and “Family Ties (Without Us)”. Classic instrumentals like the themes from “The Pink Panther”, “Star Trek”, “Mission Impossible” and “Hawaii 5-0”.
We’ll also venture further into the weird mind of Tony Starlight. Could the Red Hot Chili Peppers sing the Brady Bunch? What TV theme sounds the most like a song by The Cure? Or Green Day? Or The Smiths? And what’s “Tears for Cheers” supposed to mean, anyway?
These are the folk songs of a generation. Sing-along to “The Brady Bunch”, “The Munsters”, “Gilligan’s Island” and even “Schoolhouse Rock”. Snap along to “The Addams Family”. Even the commercials had great songs! “Get your skis shined up, grab a stick of Juicy Fruit, the taste is gonna move ya…” OR “So tonight, tonight, let it be Lowenbrau…”
This show will be a multimedia trip down memory lane you won’t want to miss, performed by an All-Star eight piece band led by the Maestro Bo Ayars.
