Pop Festival 1969
A FULLY IMMERSIVE THEATRICAL AND CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE, PLUNGING BABY BOOMER FANS INTO AMAZING RECREATIONS OF THE ORIGINAL ARTISTS IN BOTH LOOK AND SOUND, EXACTLY AS THEY APPEARED IN 1969! WE HAVE CAPTURED THE SPIRIT, SOUND AND EXCITEMENT OF THE GREATEST YEAR IN LIVE MUSIC HISTORY, 1969!
Pop Festival 1969 brings back a faithful recreation of FIVE of the biggest acts to grace the stages in 1969. We have created the exact sound and look of the Artist, to bring back memories of the Biggest Year in LIVE Music History. The Year that soundtracked your life!
Audiences will be treated to the FIRST musical concert and interactive tribute show to The Woodstock Generation, featuring Pop Festival defining hits of 1969 including Light My Fire, With A Little Help From My Friends, Somebody To Love, Piece Of My Heart, Hey Joe, Brown Sugar, Purple Haze, & (Can’t Get No)
Satisfaction. Audience interaction and nostalgia is the theme of the Show, and they will get it right from the opening number with a sing-a-long version of Mary Hopkins NUMBER ONE HIT, “Those Were The Days.”
Bringing the all look and sound alike legends to life is an incredibly talented cast led by Ms. Cathy Richardson as both Grace Slick and Janis Joplin. Cathy has been touring the last EIGHT years AS Grace Slick with the ACTUAL Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship. In addition, she played the lead in the hit Off-Broadway Show,
Love Janis (at the Village Theatre, New York City, opened April 10, 2001) along with several regional productions of the Show including the Marines Memorial Theater in San Francisco. In addition to Cathy, Mr. Dave Brock plays the role of The Doors’ Jim Morrison, a role he has been playing for many years on tour with ORIGINAL Doors members Ray Manzarek and Robby Kreiger. Both Ms. Richardson and Mr. Brock have
toured the World to standing ovations because their look, sound and recreation of the Artist they are portraying is so very close to the original.
Producer Rick Kanfer says that “This show is truly like being transported back to the most amazing time in Rock Music History!”
Mr. Kanfer went on to say that “Other interactive parts of the play including passing out mini-American flags to the audience for Jimi Hendrix’ version of the Star Spangled Banner, which will be a highlight of our show since Jimi only performed the song LIVE on two occasions, at the Woodstock and Atlanta Festivals in 1969.”
Ushers at all Shows will be costumed by the Producer in 60’s garb including headbands, peace sign jewelry, and Lennon sunglasses, and encouraged to flash the peace sign as guests arrive!
