Tickets for non-members are $30 and available at the door.
“Tapestry” – The Carole King Songbook is North America’s premier musical tribute to Carole King. Davis recreates the sound and vibe of a 1970s Carole King concert experience following the music of her classic album, Tapestry. Audience members will be transported back to the iconic image of her record breaking, multi-million selling album of 1971. (“It’s Too Late,” “I Feel the Earth Move’ and “You’ve Got a Friend”) as well as many other King favorites. The album Tapestry, released in 1971, remains one of the top-selling albums of all time.
Impeccable attention to detail is taken in recreating a respectful and accurate musical presentation of King’s piano and vocals, just as they were. Davis’ energetic and heartfelt performance, along with her backup band of sax and guitar, will take the listener on a journey into those great recordings.
Davis’ career journey has taken her across the globe from the Middle East to Texas to Cuba performing as a keyboardist, vocalist and tribute artist. Having played on some of the finest stages to standing ovations in several countries around the world, Suzanne has toured in production tribute shows to ABBA, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago, and many others. She has shared stages and opened for acts such as America, KC and the Sunshine Band, the Village People and BJ Thomas.
Not only does Davis channel the characteristics of King at the piano, her comfortable stage presence really endears her to the audience.“ I really like to have fun and talk with the audience about the history of the songs. I think people want to feel that we’re all sharing these moments together … and we are.”
