Unmatched Carpenters Tribute Takes the Stage

Lisa-Carpentes-WebLamar, CO, September 15, 2014 – Singer Lisa Rock and her 6-piece band are bringing the music of The Carpenters back to the stage with their spot-on renditions of Carpenters classics with Close to You: The Music of The Carpenters for Southeast Colorado Concert Association at the Lamar High School Auditorium in Lamar, CO on October 6, 2014.

Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music. The Carpenters’ beautiful, memorable love songs topped the Billboard charts with more than a dozen number one hits. Now, singer and playwright Lisa Rock has arranged a 6-piece band, complete with back-up singers, and together they are dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience like no other. Rock’s amazing four octave range allows her to sing the hits like “We’ve Only Just Begun” and “Rainy Days and Mondays” in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and more recognizable for the audience. “When she hits the lower range of her marvelous voice,” notes Chicago critic Alan Bresloff, “if you close your eyes, you can see Karen Carpenter’s face.”

But Rock goes beyond the music in her concert. She draws the crowd in with anecdotes about Karen and Richard Carpenter, their lives and how some of the songs originated. Rock engages the audience to the point where they can’t help but sing along with her and share the memories of The Carpenters and their music.

Close to You: The Music of The Carpenters comes to the Lamar High School Auditorium on Monday, October 6 at 7 P.M. This performance is part of a concert series. Tickets to the series are $40, and can be purchased by calling 719.336.2137.

Lamar High School is located at 1900 South 11th Street in Lamar, CO. For more information about the Southeast Colorado Concert Association’s 2014-15 season, call 719.336.2137.
