Swing with Bill Cartwright: 8.1.15 show
Bill starts off this program with "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plans" by Tony Bennett who's with Count Basie's band. For those of you who are Tony Bennett fans, he'll be performing at the PNC Pavilion at Riverbend on Saturday, September 5th. Doors open at 6:30pm that evening with the concert beginning at 8pm.
From PNC's press release:
Tony Bennett, one of the most revered musicians of the last century, isn't one to rest on his laurels. Bennett, at 88 years old, isn’t one to rest period. The word “retirement” just isn’t a part of his vocabulary. “No, retirement isn’t in my future,” Bennett said. “As long as I can do it, I will be performing.” He's released more than 70 albums and has won 18 Grammys, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001. It was for his 1962 song "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" that he won his first Grammy, for best male solo vocal performance. This year, he and Lady Gaga took home the Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album.
Part of the Summer Wine Tasting Series at PNC Pavilion! Included with the price of each ticket to Tony Bennett, concert-goers will be treated to a Wine Tasting at the Party Plaza. The tasting begins 90 minutes prior to the show and ends 15 minutes prior to show time.
