National Touring Acts
Since 1983, the Side Street Strutters have captured the excitement, vitality, and spontanaiety of JAZZ-America's musical heritage!
The ensemble has brought to the stage an exciting, entertaining and educational show experience which has been enjoyed by audiences in Theaters and Performing Arts Centers throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe.
The Strutter's vast repertoire includes traditional jazz of New Orleans, featuring the legendary sounds of such artists as Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, and Fats Waller. Popular jazz melodies of Porter, Gershwin, and others are stunningly reworked into brilliant new entities without losing any of their essential charm. Exciting swing sounds of the big band era featuring the music of such famous artists as Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Count Basie are also featured.
In addition to exciting musical arrangements which showcase the extraordinary talents of each performer, the Strutter's entertaining show style presentation also includes colorful costumes, tap dancing, vocal selections, novelty numbers, and the use of rare and unusual musical instruments.
The Limeliters launched their career in 1959 at San Francisco's famous Hungry i and before long, founding members Alex Hassilev, Lou Gottlieb and Glenn Yarbrough emerged as one of the dominant voices of the early 1960's folk music scene. For three years they were the musical representatives for Coca-Cola, and their rendition of the jingle “Things Go Better with Coke” became a national hit. A string of best selling albums for RCA Records and frequent appearances on every major TV show quickly made them a household name.
Time Magazine summed up their appeal with the following memorable quote: "If the button down scrubbed looking Kingston Trio are the undergraduates of big-time folk singing, The Limeliters are the faculty."
In the ensuing years, the lineup has featured several spectacularly talented new members, but The Limeliters have never deviated from the integrity of the fabulous sound that they pioneered.
With their energy and enthusiasm undiminished and undaunted, current members Don Marovich, Andy Corwin, and Gaylan Taylor remain as exciting an act as the genre has produced. Now more than ever, the surging vocals, thrilling harmony, and whacked out sense of humor of this unique trio continue to earn them their title as The Fabulous Limeliters!
