Barry White and Donna Summer returning to the Alhambra

The last time that Barry and Donna were in Jacksonville, Florida from November 15 - 19, 2007; the shows sold out.  So why would you miss

Rainere Hale Martin
’s God-given musical talent manifested itself at an early age, but today, Donna Summer tribute artist Rainere Martin (often known simply as Rainere), takes her talent all around the country entertaining and winning the love of audiences from coast to coast.

Following a standing ovation performance on the national television show ‘Showtime at the Apollo’, Rainere realized the musical pulse of the 70s and her passion for honoring its iconic disco singer, Donna Summer, was the niche she had been searching for.  She went to work developing her tribute performance and presented it before audiences of all sizes.  The sounds of funk, soul and pop are infused in each of Rainere’s performances.

Rainere is one of the most talented musical impersonators/tribute artist on tour today.  Her debut performance with Legends in Concert at Bakers Atlantic City dazzled the audience.  She has graced the stage at the Tropicana in Atlantic City and BB King’s in New York.  Rainere has perfected her ability to entertain crowds with the classic disco sounds of the ’70s.

Jourdan Carroll is just one of those singers that you never want to forget.  Walking away from his soulful voice at the end of a show gives you hope and admiration of his talent.  Known to some of his friends and fans as Big Daddy Boo Bear, Jourdan Carroll has worked his entire life on his voice as he practiced daily on his vocal range for years before he finally mastered his iconic sound.  His voice is so deep and mesmerizing it is often associated with the voice of the legendary Barry White.  After being noted so many times of his resemblance to Mr. White, he decided to bring the 70’s soul star back to life.

Beside Barry White, he is also a tribute artist of Luther Vandross, Isaac Hayes, Lou Rawls, Teddy Pendergrass, Freddy Jackson and Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind & Fire.  Jourdan Carroll and his enthralling stage presence will be something to see for years to come.  The performances are known throughout the nation and are slowly making their way to international ears.  Along with his musical talents, Jourdan Carroll is also a fashion designer and has developed a line of contemporary male clothing.

Take a listen of their dynamic quality right HERE and call the Alhambra for a chance to see this dynamic duo.   If you’d like to be whisked-back to the seventies, you better get your tickets and get ready for the time of your life.  Don’t wait too long.  There are a few seats left.

‘Straight No Chaser’ will be in JAX for one show

Atlantic Records recording group “Straight No Chaser” has announced early details of their upcoming One Shot Tour with a tour stop at the historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre for one performance only!

Marking the 10th Anniversary of their break-out album Holiday Spirits.  Founded at Indiana University and discovered on YouTube, this a cappella group mixes stunning vocals with lively performances for unique spins on contemporary standards ranging from Charlie Puth and Bruno Mars to Bob Dylan.  For their latest release, Six Pack: Volume 3, the group puts its stamp on rock classics as well as contemporary pop hits, including “Sweet Dreams/HandClap” (a mashup of the Eurythmics and Fitz and the Tantrums) and a show-stopping “Beyonce Medley.”

upcoming tour coincides with the 10th anniversary of Straight No Chaser signing with Atlantic Records and releasing their debut album, Holiday Spirits after a video of the group performing “Twelve Days of Christmas” went viral on YouTube and became the most viewed video of 2007.
