The Bronwynn Theatre in the Worthington McConnell Arts Center hosts a night of swinging standards and Christmas favorites with “The Mad Men”, next Thursday December 15th at 7:30pm. This is a Holiday show and the last Thursday night concert series event of 2011. The McConnell Arts Center in Worthington has been a big support of local music and jazz over the past year with their 1st and 3rd Thursday concert series including performances by musicians like: Tony Hagood, Rachel Sepulveda, James Gaiters, The High Street Stompers and many more.
“The Mad Men” are three current (and/or past) members of Phil Dirt and the Dozers, the ultra popular Columbus based 50 – 60’s rock n’ roll band, who have formed a smaller specialty group to perform Frank Sinatra style crooner swing music.
Anyone who has ever heard the Dozers will recall the amazingly gifted voice of Tony Alfano – who receives a standing ovation every time he opens his mouth. He simply has one of the most incredible voices to ever emerge from Ohio , and is the lead singer of The Mad Men. The other members, Craig Goodwin and Chaz Mechenbier, are all very popular local Columbus musicians that are no less talented vocally, instrumentally, and personably. They can all sing, act up, and play every instrument in the band. It’s about time somebody turned these guys loose on the “pop” culture. (Chaz and Craig have been avid OFGC members for over 10 years – great finger style players in their own right.)
This concert is presented in coordination with the Ohio Fingerstyle Guitar Club
It’s a Mad Men Christmas.
