Marc Black’s History of the 1950s and 60s through Popular Song

Marc Black, recent inductee into the NY Chapter of the Blues Hall of Fame, has created an engaging and humorous program… and an opportunity for the audience to relive this colorful time in our history.  Well received all across the Country in libraries, art centers and small theaters, folks cheerfully sing along beginning to end!

In the presentation, Marc uses a wide range of popular songs including surprising favorites like Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, great rock tunes like Blue Suede Shoes and moving folk songs like Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ in the Wind.  The show also features a performance of his own group’s hit from 1967… Happy by the Blades of Grass.

And beside being fun, listed it as one of the top ten area events that’ll “make you smarter!”

And now, the program is being offered with a slide show that’ll slide you right back in time!  This thought provoking, multi-media show is bound to get everyone singing and feeling good about where we are…and where we’ve been.
