The Grand Tour of Real Country Music
May 17, 2016
NYC premiere! Feinstein’s/54 Below presents a Grand Tour of REAL country music, made famous by the King of REAL country music, for fans of REAL country music! This show has played to sold out houses across the US and Canada and, since no GRAND TOUR would be complete without a stop in New York, is now coming to 54 Below!
Prepare for an electrifying evening as The Grand Tour takes you on a retrospective journey through the career of country music superstar George Jones, the ‘Ol Possum himself—from the early Hank Williams-influenced Honky-Tonk recordings up through his “countrypolitan” era, including his chart-topping collaborations with fellow country music royalty, including “The Race Is On,” “Why, Baby, Why?”, “White Lightnin’,” and, of course, the all-time number-one country hit, “He Stopped Loving Her Today.”
Drawing on his 30-plus years as an actor and singer, lead singer Larry Tobias, shares stories, reflections, and humor, accompanied by Chris Blisset (Music Director and Bass), Mike Rosengarten (Guitar), Mike Lunoe (Drums), Andrew Ross Crowe (Fiddle and Keyboards).
