I think that people should never stop working no matter how old they are.

I think that people should never stop working no matter how old they are. I think there should be no such thing as retirement. Retirement is the pathway to an early grave. When you lose your work and what interests you, you lose your will to live, and I’m not that kind of person. – Bette Midler

This Hocus Pocus Star, Vinessa Shaw, Is Expecting & Her Announcement Is Wickedly Perfect

This Hocus Pocus Star Is Expecting & Her Announcement Is Wickedly Perfect
MEAGAN FREDETTE
AUGUST 15, 2017, 4:30 PM

PHOTO: MJ KIM/GETTY IMAGES PORTRAIT.
Hocus Pocus is one of the most beloved classic movies about witches. The 1993 Disney film is a staple at Halloween house parties, and for good reason: the story is timeless and the aesthetics are charmingly campy. How many among us have dressed up as Bette Midler’s character Winifred for Halloween when we were kids, or at least wish we did? Probably so many of us.
Even Hocus Pocus star Vinessa Shaw still loves the film. The actress, who played Allison in the film, took to Instagram today to announce her new little magical creature, and she referenced the film in her baby announcement with a cute little graphic featuring the charmingly evil Sanderson witches. I mean, how adorable is that? Shaw is totally going for our childhood hearts, and we love her for it.
This is her first child with her husband Kristopher Gifford, and the happy couple posed together in their initial announcement. She writes that Gifford is a graphic designer, and that she hopes we “appreciate his cheekiness.” The photo background is photoshopped, so evidently Gifford created the post for her.
Shaw has performed in plenty since Hocus Pocus. She starred alongside Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in Eyes Wide Shut, as well the remake of the classic Wes Craven film The Hills Have Eyes. But if you ask us, it’s Hocus Pocus that we know and love best, and we hope her new baby grows up to enjoy the film just as much as we do.

Listen: Melissa Manchester Takes On “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head”

Vintage Vinyl News
Listen: Melissa Manchester Takes On “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head”
August 15, 2017

81gthfqqkyl-_sx425_

On Monday, Melissa Manchester gave fans a taste of her forthcoming album, The Fellas, sharing the album opener and first single, “Ain’t That A Kick In The Head,” via her social media channels. Her rambunctious, horn-filled version of the song swings exuberantly from the rafters.

“I wanted to invite the audience in, right away, to what the album and song was going to feel like,” says Melissa Manchester. The classic song was first recorded in 1960 by Dean Martin, who also performed it in the film Oceans 11 the same year.

Manchester co-produced The Fellas with Robert Slack, Dean of Visual and Performing Arts at Citrus College in Glendora, CA. She is backed by The Citrus College Blue Note Orchestra, which is composed of students, alumni and faculty from the community college.

More than 25 years after Manchester released Tribute, her 1989 album that honored the great female singers who influenced her, she turns the tables with The Fellas, a radiant tribute to the men, including Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett and Mel Tormé, and the iconic songs they made famous. Singing with a verve and emotional vulnerability that immediately captivates, the Grammy winner inventively reimagines these beloved standards.

The Fellas – which will be released on September 8 via Manchester’s independent label, Long Run Entertainment, LLC – is available for pre-order now on Amazon. While it’s primarily a solo album, Manchester did recruit one very special fella to join her on The Fellas: Barry Manilow duets with her on a jubilant “For Me and My Gal,” a tribute to Gene Kelly and Judy Garland, who performed the 1942 movie’s title track. Manilow and Manchester met 40 years ago when they were young jingle singers trying to break into show business. Manilow introduced her to Bette Midler, who recruited Melissa to become a founding member of the Harlettes.


Melissa will launch The Fellas with a performance/record release party at Birdland in New York City on September 11 and a September 22 performance with the Blue Note Orchestra at the James Armstrong Theatre in Torrance, CA. Proceeds from the gala fundraiser/CD release party in Torrance will benefit Art Attack, a charity founded by Bea Arthur that provides lessons and scholarships to young artists who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity. Manchester will also perform in Atlanta on August 28 at the “Concert For America,” which will raise funds for national organizations working to protect civil rights.Manchester’s remarkable career will be celebrated with the September 8 release of Through the Eyes of Love: The Complete Arista 7” Singles (Real Gone Music and Second Disc Records). The 43-song set of her singles (both A and B sides) includes such hits as “Midnight Blue,” the GRAMMY-nominated “Don’t Cry Out Loud,” the GRAMMY-winning “You Should Hear How She Talks About You” and the Oscar-nominated “Theme from Ice Castles (Through the Eyes of Love).”

Melissa Manchester tour dates:

  • 08/19 – Las Vegas, NV – The Smith Center (2 shows)
  • 08/28 – Atlanta, GA – Ferst Center For The Arts – “Concert For America”
  • 09/11 – New York, NY – Birdland NYC – Record Release Party
  • 09/16 – Monroe Township, NJ – Monroe Township High School PAC
  • 09/22 – Torrance, CA – James Armstrong Theatre – CD release party/gala fundraiser for Art Attack
  • 10/12 – Franklin, TN – Franklin Theatre
  • 10/13 – Evans, GA – Hardin Performing Arts Center
  • 10/14 – Pawley’s Island, SC – Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art
  • 12/03 – Denham Springs, LA – Forest Grove Plantation
  • 12/24 – Boca Raton, FL – Wick Theatre
  • 12/25 – Boca Raton, FL – Wick Theatre (2 shows)
  • 02/17 – Brookville, NY – Tilles Center

The Reluctant Apostles Featuring Katey Sagal

Pasadena Now
The Reluctant Apostles Featuring Katey Sagal
From STAFF REPORTS
Published : Tuesday, August 15, 2017 | 12:52 PM

reluctant

On Saturday, August 19, former TV mom Katey Sagal will bring her musical side to the Levitt Pavilion singing Americana/Rock music.

Katie Sagal is best known for her role as Peggy Bundy, Al’s sarcastic, lazy, bon bon-eating wife, on “Married … with Children”, and for her role as Gemma Teller Morrow on the FX series Sons of Anarchy, for which she won a Golden Globe in 2011.

But long before Katey Sagal was out-Lady Macbething Lady Macbeth on Sons of Anarchy, she was an aspiring singer. During the Seventies and Eighties, she sang backup for an eclectic mix of artists, from Olivia Newton-John and Etta James to Molly Hatchet and Tanya Tucker. She even wore mermaid fins for Bette Midler as a member of Midler’s backup group ‘The Harlettes’, and helped make Gene Simmons’ 1978 solo album a little less cringe-worthy.

Later, she had her own band, the Group With No Name, which didn’t last long but lives forever on YouTube (one of the videos features a mind-blowing flute solo that’d make Ron Burgundy proud.). A few solo albums followed over the years – including some choice cuts on the Sons of Anarchy soundtrack – but her music has always been eclipsed by her acting career.

With the support of record label Valley Entertainment, she released her album, “room” in 2004, the first record for Sagal since her 1994 debut, “Well…”

On “Covered”, Sagal’s 2013 release, the Sons of Anarchy star takes on songs by Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Gillian Welch, Joni Mitchell and more, features a duet with Jackson Browne, and reimagines Tom Petty’s 1989 classic “Free Fallin’.” There’s something sublime about hearing the baddest biker chick on TV belt out Tom Petty’s “Free Falling.”

Sagal performs beginning 8:00 p.m. at the Levitt Pavilion, located in Memorial Park, 85 E. Holly Street, Pasadena. For more information call (626) 683-3225 or visit http://www.levittpavilionpasadena.org.
