Under The Streetlamp

Saturday, March 21, 2015

Under the Streetlamp, America’s hottest new vocal group with 2 PBS top specials, performs an electrifying evening of classic hits from the American radio songbook. Exuding the irresistible rapport of a modern day Rat Pack, the quartet — recent leading cast members of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys — deliver an evening of unforgettable entertainment. You’ll hear Doo-Wop, Motown, old time Rock ‘n’ Roll and all of your favorite songs from The Drifters, The Beach Boys, The Beatles, and in a "show-stopping" salute to their mentors Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio, the guys perform a medley from the "Four Seasons" catalog of outstanding hits.

Under the Streetlamp "a sure-fire sellout!" All the songs are delivered in the inimitable Under the Streetlamp style, with tight harmonies and slick dance moves that will take you to back an era of sharkskin suits, flashy cars, and martini shakers.

Johnny Rivers

Born in New York City, Johnny Ramistella grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He began playing professionally at age 14 when he formed his first band, “Johnny and The Spades.” He recorded his first single 1957 for Suede Records of Natchez, MS, at Cosmos Studios in New Orleans. “Hey Little Girl” became a regional chart hit. In late 1957 at age 15, Johnny Ramistella went back to New York City where he met the legendary D.J. Alan Freed, who got him a record deal with Gone Records and changed his last name to Rivers.

In 1958, while performing on the “Louisiana Hayride” in Shreveport, LA, Rivers was introduced to Ricky Nelson’s guitar player James Burton, who took a song Rivers wrote, “I’ll Make Believe,” back to Hollywood and played it for Nelson who recorded it. Rivers hopped a plane from New Orleans to Los Angeles where he hooked up with Burton, met Ricky Nelson and struck up a friendship.

In 1959, Rivers met southern comedian Brother Dave Gardner, who introduced him to Hank Williams’ widow Audrey. Audrey invited Rivers to Nashville where he met Phil Everly and a young Roger Miller. Audrey got Rivers a record deal with MGM and recorded two singles, “Darling Talk to Me” and “The Customary Thing.” Audrey also introduced young Rivers to the legendary Carl Perkins and Sam Phillips.

While performing at the Thunderbird Hotel in Las Vegas in 1963, Rivers met New Orleans legend Louis Prima, who booked him at the Sahara Hotel in Lake Tahoe, then on to the “Dream Room” on Bourbon Street. In January of 1964, Rivers opened the now world-famous Whisky à Go Go, where he recorded “Johnny Rivers Live at the Whisky à Go Go” and released his first #1 single “Memphis.” This ushered in the decade known as The Go Go Generation.

In 1965, at the session for “Mountain of Love” produced by Lou Adler, Rivers brought together for the first time the rhythm section who would define the west Coast Sound of the 60’s: Hal Blaine, Joe Osborn and Larry Knechtel.

By 1966, with numerous hit albums and singles on Imperial Records, Rivers founded Soul City Records and Rivers Music Publishing. Rivers then signed The Fifth Dimension to Soul City and an unknown tunesmith, Jimmy Webb to Rivers Music. In 1966 , after writing and recording his #1 hit, “Poor Side of Town,” Rivers produced “Up, Up and Way,” which won two Grammys for Record and Song of the Year (1967). During this period, Rivers appeared on The Red Skelton Show, American Bandstand, The Hollywood Palace with Judy Garland, The Milton Berle Special with Lucille Ball, and The Ed Sullivan Show, among others.

 “Secret Agent Man” was featured in the popular hit film Austin Powers and Bowfinger (starring Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy).Occasionally, Rivers performs with symphony orchestras throughout the U.S. including Austin, TX, Baton Rouge, LA, Pensacola FL, Louisville, KY and Jackson, TN.
