PALM COAST, Fla. (November 21, 2022) A little bit of comedy, a little bit of dance and a whole lot of music opened the 2022-23 season for the Flagler Auditorium on Friday evening.
The Jersey Tenors brought toe-tapping, head-bobbing classics to the stage featuring decades of New Jersey artists, weaving in stories, and drawing on audience interaction throughout the show.
They even threw in west coast darlings The Beach Boys for good measure.
A longtime friend and patron of the Flagler Auditorium, Kim Carney has her favorites, adding the Jersey Tenors to the list midway through the show.
“This was a show I hadn’t seen before so, we love it. We love any type of music. Very strong vocals, especially on the lead guy, really strong vocals,” said Carney.
She’s looking forward to stellar lineup of shows this season that include Hotel California: A Salute to the Eagles, One Night of Queen and The Bronx Wanderers.
“I bought several hundred dollars of tickets tonight just to get my seats. We come back to see Hit Men every time they’re here. We’ve got our classical likes that we just love. We try to squeeze in a few here and there we haven’t seen before and this was one of them. I’m glad we came out tonight.”
Enjoying the show with family, Doug White picked up two CDs from the merchandise booth during the show’s intermission.
“We’ve found them to be above par in every way,” said White.
“They have a dynamic style, varied in their presentation, they’re not doing their own original material but they’re not doing any injustice to the original artists. It’s great to be here.”
As COVID restrictions have relaxed and patrons are more comfortable returning to indoor venues, it’s reflected in ticket sales for the fall where patrons in the holiday spirit have purchased hundreds of tickets for the upcoming Celtic Angels’ Christmas Show on November 25th, and One Night of Queen is on track to be a sellout performance on November 30th.
