After all that…they can now add to their biography that they have performed on the Sundial Stage in Sun City, AZ! From Paradise Artists… How original are the Grass Roots you say? Well, with Rob Grill being a member from 1967 through 1977, and Joel Larson being a member in 1966, then back again in 1972 through 1978, then Rob Grill back again from 1982 through 2006. The longest members now are Joe Dougherty and Larry Nelson who have been members of the group since 1985. Guess that’s why it’s called show business.

Tina Turner Tribute by Cookie Watkins
Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 7pm
Cookie Watkins brings more than a celebrity impersonation to her performance in the award-winning live tribute show Legends in Concert. Music has been Cookie’s mainstay since Duke Ellington brought her onstage to warble out a few tunes at the ripe age of fourteen. The Duke gave Cookie a coming-out party at the Rainbow Room when she turned eighteen. She even warranted a special mention in his book “Music Is My Mistress.”
Always thought of as the little girl with the big woman’s voice, Cookie studied opera and classical music before her out-of-the-box smash hit “Can’t Judge a Book by Its Cover” brought her to the forefront of the dance movement. Soon she was lending her vocal expertise to such smash hits as Shades of Love’s “Keep in Touch” (Body to Body).
Known to underground music fans as “Iron Throat,” Cookie admits to being highly influenced by R&B legends like Aretha Franklin, Patti Labelle, Bobby Womack and the legend she so enthusiastically tributes, Tina Turner.
No stranger to Broadway, Cookie also performed in hit stage musicals like “Guys & Dolls,” “Sweet Charity,” and “Hair” before touring with the original cast of “Beehive” and Marie Wilson.
Cookie allows the audience to savor the saucy effects of Tina’s “Higher” before a seamless transition to the throaty “Better Be Good to Me” followed by “What’s Love Got To Do With It?” But Cookie and her audience know nothing tops the high-energy stand-up hit and closer “Proud Mary,” and that is exactly what Cookie does Tina—“Proud!”
The Heart of Rock & Roll – Huey Lewis Tribute
Wednesday, Marcy 29, 2017 at 7pm
The Heart of Rock & Roll brings to life all the hits of the 80’s super group Huey Lewis & the News.
The concept was born in late 2012 when brothers Tony & Roger Langdon, guitarist & front man respectively, for a variety cover band were performing their usual weekend shows. For years the song The Heart of Rock & Roll was a set list staple mixed in among their band’s other classic rock, pop and R&B songs. One night, a show guest made the comment that Roger “kind of looks and sounds like Huey Lewis.”
Tony suggested to Roger to go ahead and try a full blown Huey Lewis impersonation to see if there was something to that fan’s comment. After working out a few songs, it became clear that there was something special going on. Roger brings the sound, image and style of Huey Lewis to life with such great detail that he has fooled more than a few fans.
Hits of Huey Lewis and the News are: The Power of Love, Heart and Soul, The Heart of Rock and Roll, Do You Believe in Love, Hip to be Square, If This is It, Back in Time and many more
