Feelin' Groovy, A Tribute to Simon and Garfunkel Featuring Jim Witter
You are in for a groovy trip down memory lane with Jim Witter, as he brings to life the music of Simon and Garfunkel! Jim has been performing nostalgia shows since 2001 and remarks, "This is the music I really love. Stepping on stage every night and playing these songs is a great honor and privilege". As Simon and Garfunkel, the duo rose to fame in 1965, backed by the hit single "The Sound of Silence". They are well known for their close vocal harmonies and sometimes unstable relationship. They were among the most popular recording artists of the 1960s; among their biggest hits, in addition to "The Sound of Silence", were "I Am a Rock", "Homeward Bound", "A Hazy Shade of Winter", "Mrs. Robinson", "Bridge over Troubled Water", "The Boxer", "Cecilia", and "Scarborough Fair".

The Return A Tribute to the Beatles
The Return got its start back in 1995 when four young friends got together to play their favorite Beatles songs just for the fun of it. It wasn't long before they played in front of an audience at the request of a friend and as it turned out, were very well received. That show — which was supposed to be a one time thing — led to another gig, which led to another and so on until the band found themselves playing on a regular basis. They decided to go ahead and make it official. Today the band still strives to maintain the utmost level of authenticity in their show. In fact, they are known for it. They've played thousands of shows—theatres, festivals, fairs, casinos, cruise ships, colleges and universities, weddings, birthday parties, bar mitzvahs--as well as countless corporate events for companies like Coca Cola, ABC, Hard Rock Cafe, and Volkswagen International--and the reaction is the same every time. People are amazed at how much the Return sounds and looks just like the Beatles.
