The Jersey Tenors are on tour in the Midwest and will appear in Minocqua on Friday, May 3 at the Lakeland Union High School Theatre under the sponsorship of the Lakeland Performing Arts Association as part of its current series of performances. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. Doors to the theatre at 9753 State Hwy. 70 W will open at 6:30 p.m.
According to an LPAA press, The Jersey Tenors are a rock/opera mash-up sensation, creating an explosive blend of the most popular opera classics alongside such rock 'n roll greats as Queen, Journey, Elton John and Billy Joel to name a few. However, they are also "Jersey Proud" and do not forget where they came from as they highlight some of Jersey's finest, including Frankie Valli, Frank Sinatra, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Kool and the Gang and even Whitney Houston.
The Jersey Tenors, a quartet who all have Broadway credits, including the leader, Brian Noonan who spent 17 years performing in such shows as "Les Miserables," "Phantom of the Opera" and "Jesus Christ Superstar." Noonan is joined by Danny Calvert, Cameron Johnson and Vaden Thurgood. Noonan and Johnson lead the operatic selections, while Thurgood and Calvert bring their rock 'n roll chops to the performance. All four are classically trained and the quartet has found a sound that really works, producing the exact blend to share their musical experiences on the stage each night. The Jersey Tenors grew out of a Frankie Valli tribute band and the Unexpected Surfer Boys: who performed a very successful 38 concert tour in the 2013-2014 season.
These four charming guys will raise the roof with their powerful voices and will have the crowd singing along, the release states.
As a bonus, the quartet will conduct an educational clinic for LUHS and other area students on the afternoon of the concert. This clinic has been sponsored by a special student education grant from the St. Matthias Thrift Shop as well as grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board and the Northern Arts Council.
