Women Behind Barz

Saturday, May 13, 9:00pm

‘Women Behind Barz’ is the latest project that RI Comedy Hall of Famer, Doreen Collins has mounted and this time she’s not mounting alone. She’s bringing 2 other of RI’s funniest females with her to round out this comedic ménage-a-ha…HA!  This all-gal gala will feature big laughs, celebrity impressions, musical mayhem, and…a guy.

Coleen Galvin and Mary Ellen Rinaldi join Doreen bringing a combined 80 years of comedy to the table.

 

You may remember Doreen Collins from WJAR Ch.10’s Rhode Bytes or the UnReal Deal, or perhaps you caught her one women show, ‘Boozical the Musical’ or maybe your one of the many Rhode Islanders that saw her in her 10 year run with Charlie Hall’s Ocean State Follies. Well, now she’s with Women Behind Barz and some would say that’s exactly where she belongs. Doreen has worked hard at making it more than just a typical comedy night, stating, “I want to elevate it to something more than just 3 people doing jokes. I want to make it a bit more theatrical, slightly musical, but always hysterical”.

 

Stand-up comedienne and actress Coleen Galvin, self-proclaimed “Queen of Rhode Island Comedy” is well- known for her quick wit and openness- drawing from personal experiences, humorous family situations, and relationship issues. Though she has preformed all over the country, Coleen is proud to be a Rhode Island native originally from Pawtucket, embracing the phrase, “…but you can’t take the Pawtucket out of the girl.”

 

Truly a character within a character, Mary Ellen Rinaldi has a unique, easy- going, conversational style that is often aimed at her Italian heritage and growing up in Cranston. A combination of comedienne, professional speaker, and storyteller, Mary Ellen has been making audiences laugh for over 25 years.

Driftwoods - Beach Boys Tribute

Saturday, June 10, 9:00pm

THE DRIFTWOODS “Still Riding the Wave of A Lifetime”
RI’s Rock ’n’ Roll scene has roots. The first big wave took place early 1964 when that
1st group of young musicians strapped on guitars, plugged in keyboards with mopped
head drummers banging out a driving backbeat. Commonly called ‘garage bands’, many
at that time in this area actually had their beginnings in basements. These guys were
there then and they broke out big. What set them apart from the rest was their 4 & 5
part vocal harmonies layered above those rock rhythms. From 1964-67 they ruled this
area music scene, winning eleven of fifteen ‘Battle of the Bands’. Highly sort after for
high school and college dances, radio station events and local tv appearances, they
also performed for the Newport ‘jet set’, opened for national acts and were considered
in 1965 for an appearance on the late night Johnny Carson Show. They set the musical
bar high and are still regarded today by musicians as well as the casual listener as
vocally unequaled and always a fan favorite. The Driftwoods, RI’s longest running active
rock act, are still going strong adding new fans with each new performance. In 2013 The
Driftwoods teamed up with famous NY record producer Alan Lorber who’s long list of
credits includes The Luvin Spoonul, Jackie Wilson, Neil Sedaka, and Orpheus. Lorber
has done post production on the group’s new CD Bamboo Bedroom, releasing the
recordings on two new CDs as part of his Iris Music Group label. The releases
chronicles the group long history and it’s musical journey living out their dream. The two
CDs ‘Wave Of A Lifetime’ and ‘Something About Us’ are available for purchase on
the Iris Music Group Web site, Amazon, Itunes and other digital music web sites. The
groups busy 2015 schedule includes concert series, fairs & festivals, casinos and
corporate & private events from Maine to Key West Florida.
