Sonny and Perley, Sonny and Perley “Breezin Along With The Blues ~ Everybody Loves The Blues” History,
Media- Other,
Music
“Breezin Along With The Blues ~ Everybody Loves The Blues” Husband and wife duo Sonny and Perley are well known for their playful presentation of classics from the Great American Songbook, Bossa Nova and International Cabaret traditions. In this concert they're having a ball with the blues! Back in the 1940s the currents of jazz and blues ran close together. This is the era they draw from with their lighthearted, jazzy spin on the blues. Sonny and Perley don't pine or bewail—they let loose with rhythm and humor, singing and playing songs of the human experience that get your feet tapping, fingers snapping, and put a smile on your face. Joining Sonny on keyboards and vocals, Perley on vocals and percussion, will be Jim Curtin on bass and vocals.

They will also learn some hula moves and dance to the Hawaiian steel guitar. Stories from far away lands that teach good moral lessons are told and accompianied by authentic instruments. These include the Turkish saz, Japanese shakuhachi flute, and Hawaiian lap steel guitar. Assorted percussion instruments brought back from my travels can be handed out as well. This program is truly one of a kind and all instruments are authentic and brought back by myself from the country of origin. The music is real and not dumbed down in any way, and I have found that this program always thrills, entertains, and educates audiences. Its perfect for ages 3-11.
