THE CAB JIVERS OF THE CAB CALLOWAY ORCHESTRA TO PERFORM AT LCCC’S STOCKER ARTS CENTER

Stocker Arts Center will jive with the hot sounds of The Cab Jivers of the Cab Calloway Orchestra at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, October 7 on the campus of Lorain County Community College. The Cab Jivers of the Cab Calloway Orchestra are a smaller group drawn from the larger Cab Calloway Orchestra. They will perform with special guest singer Alice Tan Ridley.

Tickets are $36 for orchestra; $29 for mezzanine; and $10 for LCCC students and youth 18 and under. Valet parking is available for this show for just $5 per car. Tickets for the performance and valet parking can be ordered online at http://www.stockerartscenter.com/, or by calling the Stocker Arts Center box office at (440) 366-4040 from 12-6 p.m., Monday through Friday and 90 minutes before curtain time. Tickets are also available at the box office, located in the lobby of the Stocker Arts Center.

The Cab Jivers have delighted audiences at venues across the country under the baton of Cab’s grandson, Calloway Brooks. Cab dazzled audiences dating back to the 1920s with his unique style, sound and visual performance, which set him and his orchestra apart from other big bands. Brooks keeps alive the family tradition, performing in the style of his grandfather. He strives to create the unique sound that millions enjoyed on the radio and in concert. With hits like “Minnie the Moocher,” the orchestra brings the audience into the show.

The Cab Jivers deliver both the authentic sound of a hot jazz orchestra and a snazzy stage style, bringing out a jump, blues and boogie experience of swing that is king and jive that’s alive and well today. Performing with Alice Tan Ridley, The Cab Jivers offer you a special and memorable event that will have you smiling long after the show.

Ridley, a finalist on “America’s Got Talent” in 2010, joins the Cab Jivers. Ridley was the winner of New York Music Award for Best New Performance in 2011. She has been captivating audiences since she was 3 years old. After moving to New York in 1971, raising her family (she is the mother of Oscar-nominated actress, Gabourey Sidibe, “Precious”) and teaching handicapped children, she resumed her singing career in 1992, beginning with a tour of Morocco, when she was invited by the Moroccan ambassador to the US to perform in his country. In 2002, she won the “30 Seconds to Fame” FOX talent show and in 2007 she won an Emmy for the documentary “Military Families.”
