UNDER THE STREETLAMP KICKS OFF GREEK THEATRE’S 2014 SEASON

GREEK THEATRE'S 2014 SEASONUnder the Streetlamp, kicks off The Greek Theatre, LA’s 2014 season with their early rock & roll, doo wop and Motown classics on Friday, May 2.  Opening the show is the acapella sensation, Gentleman’s Rule.

With their unique style and modern “Rat Pack” persona, UNDER THE STREETLAMP brings the American Radio Songbook to a whole new level in their second television special for PBS.
With the mantra “Retro never sounded so now,” these four extremely talented and charismatic former cast members of the Tony®
Award-winning Broadway musical “Jersey Boys”provide an electrifying concert produced at the renowned Chicagoland’s Star Plaza Theater.
Their special is entitled, “UNDER THE STREETLAMP: Let The Good Times Roll.”

Backed by an outstanding ten-piece band, STREETLAMP singers Michael Ingersoll, Shonn Wiley,
Michael Cunio and Christopher Kale Jones bring these classic hits back to the millions of fans who fell in love with this music in the first place.
The show includes classic hits of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s with the perfect balance of tender ballads and uptempo classics,
all done with the same signature harmonies and slick dance moves that have made them irresistible.  Of course no STREETLAMP
show would be complete without a musical tribute to “Jersey Boy” Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

The next generation of a cappella entertainment, GENTLEMAN’S RULE – Will Lockhart, Brent Mann, Luke Mechlin, Holland Nightenhelser, Jasper Smith, Jesse Townes, Andrew Morstein and TJ Breen – takes this unique style of music to a whole new level in their first television special for PBS.  From the creator of Straight No Chaser and the producer and manager of UNDER THE STREETLAMP, GENTLEMAN’S RULE exudes youth, energy and incredible harmonies in a concert performance that brought down the house at Chicagoland’s prestigious Star Plaza Theatre, which is where their PBS-TV special was filmed.

GENTLEMAN’S RULE blends their youthful style and outstanding vocals with timeless classics and contemporary hits.
Their diverse music selections include songs by the legendary Manhattans, Bill Withers, the Rolling Stones, Rascal Flatts and the Spencer Davis Band, just to name a few.  Whether the music is classic ‘60s, ‘70s, or contemporary hits, GENTLEMAN’S RULE applies their unique harmonies to create a “wow” factor unlike any other a cappella group.  Based out of Chicago, the group is signed to Arena Child Records and released their first album, ACT ACCORDINGLY, in 2012.  Both the album and live performances have been met with high praise from audiences and critics alike.
“They are phenomenal,” said Dan Richards from superstation WGN-TV in Chicago.  Showbiz Chicago hails GENTLEMAN’S RULE for “incredibly precise and lush harmonies” and Theatremania urges “Don’t miss this amazing singing sensation.”
