   November Concert


     Jazz Singer  - Barbara Evans        

Music has always Barbara's passion. Born in the New Jersey (USA), she moved with her family to Florida and started singing gospel and classical. She came to Europe where she started a modeling career, then she went back to her first love : music.

In 1993, Barbara Evans contributed to Wildside's single My Body and to B&W's single Hello (duet with Cristina Dori) (label : 21st Century records).

She appeared in a few soaps, such as Miami Vice and As the World Turns. She took part to San Remo festival in 1997 and 1998, and collaborated with various Italian artists such as Paolo Conte, Elisa, Zucchero, Andrea Mingardi, but also international artists such as Mariah Carey and the Blues Brothers. She also recorded jingles for the Fiat Stilo and Citroen.

Teaching herself to play piano and guitar is a real challenge but she has already composed fifteen songs that are now being arranged. She did a cover of Barry White & Love Unlimited's 70's hit I'm So Glad That I'm A Woman and is completing her summer tour promoting the track.

She is described as "solar and gifted with a definite and limpid voice". Her live performances are exuberant and energetic. She always manages to capture and involve her audience, which is typical of someone who is determined and positive.

2001 : Barbara released a solo single entitled Go To The Top.

2005 : she co-wrote with F. Contadini and recorded the single Saved By The Music under the name House Groovers feat. J&B.

She had also written 2 pop ballads this year. Her first release will be a song called I Can Wait that she had originally written for her 13 year old niece Tiffany Evans who signed with Columbia earlier this year. The track was not accepted by the record company for this young star so Barbara decided to record it herself. It was produced by singer/songwriter/producer Jarvis Evans.

In November Barbara appeared at The "PIPER's  Pics" TV. This time she was as nervous as ever singing her very own song I Can Wait in front of a live audience for the very first time. She was called back for the November 26th episode.

2006 : Barbara is performing as a lead vocalist with City Lights, one of the most successful South Florida bands. She's co-producing Eniam, a promising rapper from Miami. She is also collaborating with rapper and producer Traffic from Nashville. Their first RnB ballad has been recorded. She plans to establish her very own record label soon. She also gave her voice for a beer commercial on National TV stations in Italy.

2009 : in May, she contributed to Amadeus Project - Love Is Like The Sun.

    Comedian  - Harley Worthit   

   Harley Worthit performed his unique style of clean comedy in Branson, Missouri for 29 years with well-known local acts like the Presleys and Pierce Arrow, he has performed with country singers Moe Bandy, Micky Gilley, Gene Watson and Pam Tillis. Harley also entertained with comedian Jim Stafford. He moved to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee to be a featured entertainer at the Comedy Barn for 3 years, but now makes his home in North Port, Florida. Harley Worthit offers a comedy show you won't forget.

Here's what Gail Fassett, Activities Director at Apache Wells in Mesa, Arizona, wrote to other activities directors throughout the Phoenix area:
“We had Harley Worthit on stage for the 2nd year in a row and it was a sell-out and a huge hit again. His jokes are clean and with no swearing. I tried to take photos of the audience laughing and men wiping their cheeks of tears from laughing so hard. He dressed like an old man and does many senior jokes. His final costume for the night is hilarious!! Please contact him if you want a fun night!


December Concert

 Mentalist - Bob Lawson

People don't know where I find the time to paint with all the other things I do and have done in my life.  For several years I was an interior designer and a member of ASID.  I worked in St. Louis as a designer at Lammert's in the Clayton Design store.  I also worked as a designer for Studio One Interiors in St. Louis and Metro Decorators in Allentown Pennsylvania.  As well as being an artist and designer,  I am also an entertainer  performing in theaters, casinos and aboard cruise ships.  I try to do some form of art every day, if it's not an actual painting it's a sketch of something I want to paint when back in my studio.   When traveling it's not always convenient to paint.   If  I'm working a cruise ship or in a theater I  often do small paintings in my cabin or backstage in my dressing room,   but let me back up a little....

 I attended Syracuse University right after getting out of the US Navy.  I had theater and art in mind for a career.  I felt that I had a gift for entertaining and performed with Famous Artists Theater in NY for six years.  Theater work was great but it didn't pay well so I  also worked for Goldberg's Furniture in Syracuse NY.  I found that my artistic talents were an easy transition to design. For over 20 years interior design and art were my main careers.  Theater was never far behind as I stayed in touch with performing through community theatre groups where ever I lived.  I then worked on my own show with a gift I was given to perform as a mentalist.  I took two years to build my show Mind Games.  After two years I presented my show to an agent and it was full speed ahead from there.  At this point in my life I left the brushes and paints and design behind.

 Several years ago I was performing with Tony Bennett in New York.   I knew that Tony was a fine singer but also well a well known painter.  I valued Tony's opinion on artwork and  I showed him pictures of some of my work.   Tony said, " Bob you're a really good  artist and you need to start painting again"   I'm happy I took Tony's advice as it was like returning home,  I had no idea how much I missed painting. 

  At the time I started to paint again I was performing for for several cruise lines with my show.  Working for cruise lines occupied all of my winter months in Florida.  This gave my partner and myself an opportunity to open an art gallery in Alexandria Bay NY, a beautiful summer resort. For 25 years  we operated Riverbank Gallery. The  blend of the gallery in the summer and performing in the winter was the best of both worlds. I could to paint in the summer and perform in the winter.   After 25 years my performing schedule became broader and we decided that we would sell the gallery. 

 My technique is somewhat original in the sense that I use unusual elements that give my artwork a unique texture.  When I was working in Venice Italy I saw a man in his workshop repairing an ornate frame from a church.  I spoke with him and he told me that he would find a duplicate of the missing piece somewhere on the frame and make a mold.   He would then pour in a compound to reproduce the the  piece and repair the frame like new.  I was curious and asked what compound he used to form the missing piece as it was so delicate.  Giovanni gave me his formula.   He said it was the same that was used to cover the walls in churches to paint frescoes.  When  I returned home I worked on adding this element to my artwork.   I used this formula to make my work unique not only in design and color but in the texture on the canvas.  When you see my art in a room it changes constantly as the light in the room changes.

 Performing my show is still a major part of my life.  I am a member of the Psychic Entertainers Association. From 2008 through 2015  I acted as a technical adviser to the hit TV show " THE MENTALIST ".   I would send thoughts and ideas to  producer Bruno Heller  to help the writers make Simon Baker look more like a real mentalist.  I still paint every day and always feel the need to keep creating. My contacts in the theater are also part of my art career as two of my paintings were rented by Warner Brothers for use on a set for the movie " Father Figures" and some of my art was seen in  the TV Show " Pure Genius".   I  am fortunate to work with a company that rents my work to movie companies.  I  also work with several interior designers as galleries are becoming less and less available.  The designers find that giving me pictures of a room and color swatches saves them a great deal of time in finding the exact paintings needed for a room , office  or  commercial  project.  My painting " Barcelona Nights " was just rented in Atlanta for a new TV Pilot for CBS.
