Peggy, Rosie, and Us at the Temple Theater

On Tuesday night, The Temple Theater will present a real treat — Rachael Smith and Wendy Hayes will be there for a one-night-only showing of Peggy, Rosie, and Us. It will be a musical tribute to the great Peggy Lee and the incredible Rosemary Clooney! Both women made a huge mark on musical history and contributed to the future successes of women in music. I loved last year’s A Dash of Rosemary, which was a tribute to Rosemary Clooney, and can not wait until Tuesday to see this show.

In particular, I am excited that the show includes the great music of Peggy Lee. Peggy Lee was a sultry singer with a jazzy, sexy voice. When I was a little girl, I used to like to play my Mom’s Peggy Lee records and sing along like I was just a elegant and sexy. She was amazing. My favorite Peggy Lee song was “Is That All There is?” with the chorus that goes “Is that all there is? Is that all there is? If that’s all there is, my friend, then let’s keep dancing. Let’s break out the booze and have a ball. If that’s all…….there is!” Her most famous recording was of “Fever” — WOW – what a song – and she was the perfect one to sing it — that voice absolutely made the song!!!

Here is a You Tube clip of Peggy singing “Fever” to a collage of photos of her – very nice!

If you haven’t gotten your tickets for this show, yet — hurry!!! You won’t want to miss it!!! Hope to see you there!!!
