Nat King Cole – An Unforgettable Century

April 28, 2:00 pm | Florissant Civic Center Theater | $13 – $28

Florissant Fin Arts Council Presents: Nat King Cole – An Unforgettable Century starring Joe Bourne

 

The year 2019 will mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nat King Cole. An incandescent voice…Unforgettable in every way! If you close your eyes and let the soft, elegant music envelope you, it will be as though Nat King Cole himself has stepped up to the microphone when Joe Bourne claims the music. Joe Bourne has been winning over music fans for years with his smooth, soft baritone voice, perfectly emulating the legendary Nat King Cole with the same quiet dignity, style, and sophistication. An Unforgettable Century is accompanied by Joe’s trio consisting of Nat’s original sound – piano, bass and guitar – using arrangements transcribed from the original recordings, and is accompanied by an evocative, educational narration. Presented are swinging and sophisticated arrangements of songs like: Orange Colored Sky, Walking My Baby Back Home, Paper Moon, Sweet Lorraine, Mona Lisa, Nature Boy, When I Fall In Love, Route 66, Unforgettable and many more.
