Honeymoon In Vegas

DISCOVERY TUESDAY

Honeymoon In Vegas is Jason Robert Brown’s latest musical. It first appeared as a film in 1992 following the same name.

The plot:

“Mild-mannered Brooklynite, Jack, promised his dying mother that he would never get married, but that was before he met his sweet and beautiful girlfriend, Betsy. Haunted by a fear of Mom’s retribution, Jack avoids proposing but, when he finally summons the nerve to whisk oh-so-patient Betsy off to Las Vegas to get hitched, a dashing gambler named Tommy threatens to sweep his fiancée away to a life of luxury in Hawaii. Realising what he’s about to lose, Jack is determined to do anything to give his love story a happy ending. It all adds up to an action-packed honeymoon that no one will ever forget!” (MTI)

The music follows the older/golden-age classic big band style. I’ve included the soundtrack below, however, if you prefer to purchase the album, you can buy the album from iTunes here or listen to it on Spotify here.

On My Own

I Love A Piano

I came across this song again recently and I forgot how brilliant, versatile and characterful this song is…

Although it looks simple on the page, when its done right, its both fun for the performers and for the audience.

I’ve shared with you two fantastic, but very different performances by two powerhouse singers, hope you guys enjoy watching it 🙂

It’s almost Christmas!

Christmas is nearly here…

I hope turkeys are in place, presents are wrapped, and trees are well decorated. I’m sharing a couple of arrangements of my favourite Christmas tune. Why don’t you put it on in the background whilst getting yourself a glass a mulled wine?

What a way to get into the festive spirit. 🙂
