The Joey Vincent Show

8 p.m. – VIP Room

No matter what your tastes are in entertainment, the Joey Vincent Show has something for everyone. More than just music, more than just comedy, his show is fresh and original! Fast-paced humor, rapid-fire costume change impressions, and a musical tribute to the trumpet greats are just part of the fun. From Harry James to James Brown, Stevie Wonder to Willie Nelson, Louis Armstrong to Luciano Pavarotti, Joey Vincent will take you on a one-man musical journey from the ‘30s to today. This powerful combination of singing, dancing, comedy, impressions and trumpet virtuosity has been bringing people to their feet for over 15 years. He has toured throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Russia, both on his own and as the opening act for stars such as Tony Orlando, Joey Dee & The Starlighters, Freddie Roman, Julie Budd, The Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra, Marilyn Michaels and many, many more. He is an accomplished musician on a variety of brass instruments, and his vocal skills are equally impressive; his talent has taken him to some of the world’s great venues, including Carnegie Hall, Toronto Symphony Hall, and the Philadelphia Academy of Music. And, since this is a one-man show, entirely self-contained, you will get a LOT of entertainment for a very reasonable price.

The Towers Country Club Book Club Returns

Moderator, Natasha Dobra

Book to be discussed – “A Thousand Splendid Suns” by Khaled Hosseini

7:30 p.m. –VIP Room

Whereas “The Kite Runner” focused on fathers and sons, and friendships between men, Khaled Hosseini’s latest novel, “A Thousand Splendid Suns,” focuses on mothers and daughters, and friendships between women. Whereas “Kite Runner” got off to a gripping start and stumbled into contrivance and sentimentality in its second half, “Splendid Suns” starts off programmatically and gains speed and emotional power as it slowly unfurls.
