Back to Bacharach And Beyond:
Back to Bacharach and Beyond by Christine and Elliot Spero is a show that will lovingly take you on a journey through Burt Bacharach’s greatest songs with some surprises. Bacharach, who is considered one of the most important composers of 20th-century popular music, has composed hundreds of pop songs from the late 1950s through the 1980s, mostly in collaboration with lyricist Hal David.
A six-time Grammy Award winner and three-time Academy Award winner, Bacharach's songs have been recorded by more than 1,000 different artists. He has written 73 US and 52 UK Top 40 hits. In 2015, Rolling Stone ranked Bacharach and David at number 32 for their list of the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time. Take the journey back in time with us.
Christine Spero is no stranger to the stage. As a teen she recorded with Neil Sedaka and Don Kirschner at RCA Records. Her song "He Wasn't Always That Way" was the USA Songwriting Competition Jazz Category winner and "Caribbean Nights" was one of the finalists. The Christine Spero Group perform her original Nu-Jazz, Latin Fusion with 2 CD releases and a third, "Spero Plays Nyro" the music of Laura Nyro.
Christine and multi instrumentalist, producer Elliot Spero have been recording and playing live shows with the group or as a duo for over 20 Years.
