Cocktails with the Crooner
August 28, 2016
Doors/Cocktails 5PM | Show 6:15PM
The Eureka Theater and Redwood Coast Music Festivals are proud to present Johnny Boyd: Cocktails with the Crooner, an elegant evening of cocktails and dancing with singer/song-writer and former frontman for Indigo Swing--Mr. Johnny Boyd! No one exemplifies modern-day crooning better than Johnny Boyd: smooth, romantic vocals; matinee idol charisma; classic gentleman’s style; and dynamic, irreverent performances. But it’s his fresh, emotive, all-original contributions to the Great American Songbook that will be his legacy. Boyd, a prolific songwriter, is renowed for his unique ability to seamlessly blend jazz, swing, pop, country, gospel and rock, bringing back the nostalgic charisma of a bygone era. NPR aptly stated, “If Frank Sinatra and Johnny Cash had a love child, it would be Johnny Boyd.” With his highly anticipated release, Someday Dreams Of You (Cliffdive Records, release date 02/12/2016), Boyd introduces a whole new generation of listeners to the Great American Songbook and his classic crooning style. The new album contains both overlooked treasures and brand new classics penned by Boyd himself in the Great American Songbook style.
Classic cocktail hour/doors at 5pm. Show begins at 6:15. $15 general admission/$20 Premier (includes exclusive meet-and-greet in our Upper Lobby with a special Champagne/Cocktail Bar)
Tickets can be purchased online at http://crooner.bpt.me/ or locally at Annex 39 Antiques, next door to the Eureka Theater.

Steve McQueen in
September 8, 2016
Steve McQueen puts a 1968 Ford Mustang GT to good use over and over again in this '60s classic. The plot revolves around McQueen, starring as no-nonsense San Francisco cop Frank Bullitt, and his efforts to take down the crime kingpin who killed an important witness that Bullitt was assigned to keep safe. While the spine of the plot is generic, McQueen and his damn beautiful vehicle turn what would be a by-the-numbers cop action flick into something special. Expert direction by Peter Yates, who makes multiple car chases seem anything but redundant, allows the film to gain energy until the film's ultimate climax. Filled with an overabundance of "cool" on so many levels it's no secret as to why BULLITT remains one of the canonical car movies of all-time!
1968 | 114 min. | Rated PG
