With a twinkle in her eye and that rasp in her voice, CC Coletti channels the spirit of Janis Joplin, belting out hit after hit in a heartfelt tribute performance. Her band of seasoned pros recreates the sound that defined a generation, slamming through classic 60s jams, laying down the soul, and conveying the tender ballads and old-timey blues numbers that made Joplin a legend.
CC and her band steam through the Janis catalog, peppering their hit-filled sets with some of Janis’ best deep cuts. Sights and sounds complement each other, as the stage is time-warped back to the psychedelic 60s, with tie-dye, lava lamps, and choice threads. A psychedelic visual show sets the backdrop for the band’s vintage gear, which provides an authentic sound as CC pays homage to her idol in the best way she knows how — urgently preaching the gospel according to Janis.
Experience Janis comes to The Newton Theatre on Saturday, May 16, 2020 at 8PM. Tickets can be purchased online at www.skypac.org or by calling 973-940-NEWT.
