To most Americans, Bing Crosby was the eternal Crooner, a much-celebrated and beloved performer of unparalleled popularity. Yet he was far more than that. He was an architect of 20th century entertainment, a force in the development of three industries that barely existed when he came into the world--recordings, motion pictures, and broadcasting.

Throughout much of his career, he dominated the music charts with nearly 300 hit singles to his credit. To this, he added stardom in movies, radio, and television. His work helped to transform and define the cultural life not only of the United States, but of the world.

“Yes, Indeed! – The Great Songs of Bing Crosby” captures the highlights of Crosby’s unparalleled 50-year career, stretching from his early jazz roots with "Bix" Beiderbecke and Paul Whitman, through his crooner years of the 1930s, his movie hits of the 1940s and 50s, and beyond.

 

Some of Bing’s Great Songs include:

Swinging on a Star - Three Little Words - Sweet Georgia Brown - Brother Can You Spare a Dime - It’s Easy to Remember - Don’t Fence Me In - Pennies from Heaven - What’s New? - Yes, Indeed! - Blue Skies - Play a Simple Melody,” “How Deep is the Ocean?”, “Too Marvelous for Words,” “Dear Hearts and Gentle People,” “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” “Imagination,” “The Second Time Around”, “In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening,” and “Star Dust,” among others

Stephen Peithman tells the Crosby story with the help of performers Joe Alkire, Bob Bowen, Gwyneth Bruch, Martha Dickman, Paul Fearn, Lenore Heinson, and Lenore Sebastian, accompanied by musical director LuAnn Higgs and percussionist Jim Nakayama.

Tickets may be purchased from the CWC website or at the CWC office (409 Lincoln Ave, Woodland).
