A tribute to the music of Karen Carpenter & Carole
Annie Masciandaro with Deb De Lucca
THE TURNING POINT, Piermont, NY
is a loving and really well-thought out and performed tribute to the music
of two of the greatest female pop singers of all time. Annie sings the
Karen Carpenter stuff (and plays drums too!), and Deb does the Carole
King stuff (and plays piano!). I will be there with a synthesizer filling
in the rest of the parts as best I can and singing Richard's parts - it's
just the 3 of us. More gigs with them to come. You will love hearing all
of these monster hits sung by these two lovely ladies!
