NEXT STOP: Tour the South with The Midtown Men

• April 7, 2019 • Comments (0)

JOIN THE MIDTOWN MEN as they visit four southern cities in five days!  The journey begins at the FMU Performing Arts Center in Florence, South Carolina.

 

Although perhaps best known for being the intersection of I-95 and I-20, Florence has a thriving economy and a little something for everyone.  You might want to start your day browsing the many antique stores and markets, followed by strawberry picking at Cottle Strawberry Farm or a picnic in Timrod Park – an 18 acre park complete with tennis courts, walking trails, playgrounds and more.

 

After an adventurous day like this, you might be looking for a cold beverage.  Why not drop in to Seminar Brewing, Florence’s first commercial Craft Brewery!  According to their website, they “have a passion for brewing exceptional beer and (are) proud to present it to you!”

 

And now, you are ready to dance and sing the night away with THE MIDTOWN MEN!  But better get to sleep early, because you have another big day tomorrow….as you head to Louisburg, NC.

These Are Exciting Times for The Midtown Men and Their Fans

• March 12, 2016 • Comments (2)

2015 was a big year for The Midtown Men: a second fantastic PBS special, more symphony shows, national and regional television appearances, and a huge show at the Beacon in NYC.  Not to mention dozens of concerts for old friends and new fans across the country.

 

Lucky for us, these are not guys who rest on their laurels; in fact, The Men have an even bigger 2016 ahead!

After hugely successful shows in Hawaii last season, they are heading back to The Aloha State next week – March 18 at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center and March 20 at the Hawaii Theatre Center.

From there, the Men will head cross-country to spend some time in sunny Florida for return visits to the Lakeland Center and Van Wezel PAC on March 24th and 25th.

Coming up in April, The Men will travel to the Pacific Northwest before heading back down to Florida, with stops in a couple of southern states along the way.

Yes, exciting things are in store for OUR fab four and their fans, so be sure to check back here often for updates on where the Men have been, and where they are heading!  And check out the concert calendar to find a show near you!

Comments are always welcome – in fact they are encouraged! And feel free to send along any pictures you want to share – tmmclub@comcast.net.

NEXT STOP: Daytona Beach

It’s a gorgeous day in sunny Florida today, with temperatures in the low 70’s, not a cloud in the sky and best of all for Florida, no humidity. But by 7:30 tonight, it will be hot, hot, hot as The Midtown Men steam it up at the Peabody Auditorium in Daytona Beach!

A huge thank you to Carol VanSalisbury and Melissa Aldrich who worked so hard to help fill this vast 2500 seat space. The Midtown STREET CREW is awesome!!

Stay tuned for a first-hand account of the show, as I will be in attendance tonight, rockin’ alongside Carol, Missi and the MEN!

NEXT STOP: Clinton Township, MI

• January 26, 2013 • Comments (0)

After a hugely successful show in Easton, PA last night, The Midtown Men have moved on to Clinton Township, MI, the next stop on their “Full House” Tour.  (I just made that name up, but it certainly fits, doesn’t it?)

 

 

The Men will play two shows at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts – 8:00 tonight (Saturday, January 26) and 3:00 tomorrow afternoon (Sunday, January 27.)  [click here for ticket information]

 

 

Although it’s below freezing in Michigan today, we know the Men will heat up the Macomb this weekend!  And the Michigan weather aside, Midtown Man Daniel Reichard says he is “excited to be back in his college state!  Go Blue!”

NEXT STOP: Utica, NY

• October 13, 2012 • Comments (4)

The Midtown Men have been so busy this week, traveling from one beautiful venue to another, soaking up the local culture and spreading joy to fans, old and new.  But I truly believe that no town, in fact, no one person, has been anxiously awaiting THIS day more than the town of Utica, NY and fantastic fan extraordinaire Rosemary Caruso! 

Rosemary and "her boys" at the 2011 NY State Fair

Rosemary has been following Michael, Christian, Daniel and Bobby since the days of Jersey Boys, when she would make the trip from Utica to Manhattan to be thrilled by their amazing talents time and again.  And she’s not the only one!  She has a friend who actually arranged bus trips from Utica and Syracuse to see Jersey Boys.  And tonight’s show at the Stanley Theatre is not much different.  After years of traveling to The Big Apple and to the NY State Fair to see her beloved MEN, Rosemary and her friends finally have the opportunity to “host” them right in their own back yard.  And they have been hard at work for months spreading the word, helping to boost ticket sales, and make THIS STOP a memorable one for The Midtown Men.  Now that’s dedication!

It was pretty much a no-brainer where I should turn for information on Utica!  Rosemary was more than happy to share some of her favorite spots with The Midtown Men and their fans.  Here they are, in no particular order:

**  the Stanley Theaterhas a beautiful chandelier built right in Utica.  It is all stained glass, made by Meyda Tiffany.  It is said to be the biggest in the world.  So, if you can take your eyes off the stage long enough, don’t forget to look up!

**  Pumpernickel’s NY Deli was voted #1 lunch spot for three years running;

**  The Saranac Brewery is over 120 years old;

**  The Boilermaker Road Race;

**  Munson Williams Proctor Institute ;

**    The Turning Stone Casino;

**    Last but certainly not least, Café Canole Bistro and Pastry Shop – the home of the best Italian pastries!

Thank you so much Rosemary, not only for your insight into Utica, but for your unwavering, unbelievable devotion to OUR Midtown Men!

The Midtown Men will be in Columbus, Ga this weekend to help the River Center for the Performing Arts celebrate it’s 10th Anniversary! 

 

And the River Center certainly does know how to celebrate!  After what is sure to be a thrilling experience with The Midtown Men, the crowd will have the opportunity to prolong the experience with complimentary pink champagne, punch, and pink-and-yellow frosted petit fours in the lobby!

Guests are invited to commemorate this historic event by taking a picture in front of the huge birthday cake in the lobby!  And I invite fans to share their Midtown Men pics with others here on the fan site.  Just email them to tmmclub@comcast.net and I will post them in the “fan gallery.”

Hmm…my 20th Anniversay is coming up…and my birthday for that matter…wonder if I can get The Midtown Men to help ME celebrate?!?

NEXT STOP: Houston, TX

• August 30, 2012 • Comments (0)

The Midtown Men are in Houston, Texas for the Labor Day weekend, mixing their awesome sixties sound with The Houston Symphony.  If you are in town to see them, there is no shortage of things to do and places to visit.  After all, Houston is home to many cultural institutions and exhibits, which attract more than 7 million visitors a year to the Museum District. Houston also has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theatre District and offers year-round resident companies in all major performing arts. 

Houston Skyline

I wanted to get an “insider’s” take on hot spots in Houston, so I asked my 26 year old niece, Lindsay (who lived and worked downtown for a couple of years) to name a few places to eat and visit.  Off the top of her head, she rattled off many great ideas:

Museum of Fine Arts

For eating and drinking, and I quote:  “An amazing grocery/eatery – Central Market;  Little Bigs for sliders; coffee at Black Hole; nice Mexican brunch at  Tilas; super chill coffee and late night eating/drinking at Brasil; fancy bar with fancy drinks – Anvil; beer garden – Ginger Man; your Greek fix at Niko Nikos  and Barnabys; Crescent City beignets  are great; and a big fat kolache at the Kolache Factory …What was the question again?”

Discovery Green Park

Places to visit:  Memorial Park , The Galleria , The Museum of Fine Arts, Discovery Green  and Saint Arnolds Brewery .

It’s too bad she didn’t get out much while she was there!

Enjoy!

The Midtown Men cap off a couple of AMAZING days with the launch of their 2012-2013 National Tour in historic Asbury Park, NJ tonight! What a great opportunity for concert-goers to make a day of it at the Asbury Park Boardwalk. And what advice can I give? Enjoy the beach, use plenty of sunscreen, eat, drink, play games, people-watch! And then cap it all off with the best concert you’ve ever attended. Enjoy.

NEXT STOP: The NY Times … AND … Good Morning America!!

• August 11, 2012 • Comments (8)

The Midtown Men are on a roll! Not only will they “officially” begin their 2012-2013 concert tour in legendary Asbury Park on Saturday, August 18th, but the tour will be kicked off in great style with a full page spread in this Sunday’s edition of the NY Times, followed by an appearance on Good Morning America on Thursday!

Those of us who have been following Christian, Bobby, Daniel and Michael since the beginning knew that it was just a matter of time before they started making national headlines. We’ve had many discussions on the importance of a “morning show” appearance. And I for one am thrilled that so many will now have the opportunity to enjoy what we have been enjoying for years – not only the fabulous sound these four talented gentlemen bring to the best music of the sixties, but the humble, kind and generous men that they are.

Congratulations, MEN…you deserve every bit of the spotlight, and I know you will enjoy every minute of it!

Stay tuned for information on more media coverage of The Midtown Men in the coming week …  (teaser…AP video interview, among others …)
