Sarasota, December 13, 2017 – For one night only -- Dec. 29 at 7:30pm -- travel through some of the greatest music hot off the Las Vegas Strip with Jimmy Mazz’ smooth vocals, unique song selection and candid humor. Mazz has the incredible ability to capture the essence of these legendary performers. You don’t want to miss his mastery as The Players Centre for Performing Arts once again hosts his talents in “Legends & Laughter.”
“Legends & Laughter” takes a musical journey through Jimmy’s favorite songs by a wide variety of performers from the classics to today's contemporary artists hot off the Las Vegas Strip over the years. Jimmy’s high energy and enthusiasm is tempered only by his ultra smooth vocals as he creates his impressions of Rod Stewart, Joe Cocker, The Beatles, Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdinck, The Temptations, Tony Orlando, Prince, Bobby Darin, Michael Jackson and David Bowie.
Jimmy adds the crooner voices of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole, then quickly moves on to glide thru the voices of Tony Bennett, Frankie Valli, Lou Rawls, and Neil Diamond and more. A quick patriotic medley salutes our veterans, then it's on to “The King”, Elvis Presley with a very amusing parody. Jimmy keeps moving as he belts out the hits and covers many more greats including Billy Joel, Michael Buble’, Elton John, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Ray Charles, Louis Armstrong, Jimmy Durante, Stevie Wonder, and "The Boss,” Bruce Springsteen. Laughter abounds as Jimmy captures the voices of Ed Sullivan, Jackie Mason, Sylvester Stallone, John Wayne and Arnold Schwarzenegger, just to name a few. In typical Jimmy Mazz style, there's always a few surprises thrown in for good measure. Never the same show twice!
