2016 promises to be a year of new opportunities for the Whittier Center Theater in Old Town Theater. A venue used mostly for LIVE community theater productions in this quiet little town, the theater dipped it’s toes into the cool and vast pool of the tribute band world in 2015 with two productions showcasing the best of these entertainers. Robin Fox and her Foxtail Entertainment company promises world class entertainment starting with last weekends show, “From The Desert to The Sea – A Tribute to the music of The Beach Boys & The Eagles”. Starring Chris Farmer who has toured with Jan & Dean, Mike Love & Timothy B. Schmit making Chris well versed in Beach Boy/Eagles music and accompanied by guitar players Ricky Lewis & Aaron Broering(also keyboards) & David Logeman on drums the band splits the show into two sets beginning with a set of Beach Boy hits and a couple of deep cuts then after a well deserved intermission blankets the audience with the timeless rock of Eagles hits. And in the wake of the loss of Glen Frey the music of the Eagles played live made for a wondrous night of classic rock. Foxtail Entertainment’s Robin Fox promises more magical music when the world famous “Just Imagine – A tribute to the life and music of John Lennon” comes to the Whittier Center Theater sometime in May 2016. Details coming soon.
P.s. Robin Fox also has a small connection to the world of The Eagles. In her own words, “Basically, a friend of mine in Detroit needed a band for a party she was giving. We were both 16 at the time. I told her my friend Lenny Mintz could probably do the job since he was in a band. The band was the Subterraneans and Glenn Frey was the guitar player. Little did I know he would later go on and be the founder of The Eagles. It’s just funny that it was probably one of his first jobs”
Small world….Here is a home movie ; by Robin Fox’s friend from that very same party shot by her dad. Glen Frey is the guy with the tambourine.
