Win tickets to: Back to Black + Gayle and the Bowties

flyerHaving the Amy Winehouse tribute Back To Black co-headline a show with ’50-60s R&B cover band Gayle and The Bowties is something that should have happened sooner, given both bands tread the same musical ground and both have a good following of fans. It is a show that people have been demanding, says Danielle Rondero, who plays the role of Winehouse in Back to Black.

And it’s happening 9 p.m. Saturday at Audie’s Olympic.

My favorite female vocalist is Jenny Lewis. She just croons her sweet sweet tunes and I can’t get enough.

Amy Winehouse because she was such an artist!

Too many to have just one favorite, but Big mamma Thornton would definitely be tops.

I’ve been a fan of Gayle’s for years now (since she was about 16), and I would LOVE the tix to see her bring her boytoys (er, bowties) back to the stage!

Claudia says:

Sade is my all time favorite. I still get the chills when I hear “By your side” …oh the memories.

Fresno is lucky to hail the “Back to Black” band, and Danielle Rondero is simply fabulous; this girl is going places. For the Winehouse fans, she brings her music to life. Thank you!

Kirk says:

This was an amazing show. I want this every Saturday!

Carol Ann Skjellerup says:

THAT was an amazing show! I went for the local Jacktones and was enriched by Gayle and her boys! I wish I could’ve stayed late enough to catch Danielle’s band (videos?). There was magic when Gayle and her boys performed and a Jacktone spun around the dance floor next to Danielle – also firing it up out there with her dance partner! All three bands on the floor at once (pretty much) – you KNOW it’s real when they cheer for a frog-in-the-throat-recovery that MOST of the patrons didn’t even notice! *mind blown* (but shouldn’t really be)
