Featuring a special 75th birthday tribute to Barry Manilow!

Party like it’s 1979! Why Seventies Soft Rock? “The radio was the soundtrack to the 1970s, the era in which I grew up.”

The first set will be a tribute to great Barry Manilow. Sure, I jokingly call him “Barely Man-enough” on occasion, but that’s only because he wrote a song called “I Made It Through The Rain.” To people in Oregon, that’s nothing to brag about. Luckily, he wrote and sang a number of other classics. Songs like “Copacabana”, “Mandy”, “Weekend in New England”, “Could It Be Magic?”, “Somewhere In The Night”, “Bandstand Boogie”, “I Write The Songs” and more…

The second set will be our usual tribute the greats of the AM Dial in the ‘70s.

“Not every radio had FM capabilities, especially in cars. The AM dial was played in stores and restaurants and in the Country Squire Station Wagon that I rode in, sans seat belts. I absorbed these songs and they are a part of me. A few lines of ‘Rocket Man’ and I’m taken back to a time of polyester, bell bottoms and Evel Knievel.”

“We are always shocked at how the audience seems to know all the words to every song in our playlist. To hear the crowd sing “even though we ain’t got money, I’m so in love with you honey” or “give me the beat boys and free my soul, I wanna get lost in your Rock n’ Roll and drift away” is magical. It’s like a big campfire sing-along, K-Tel style!” -Tony Starlight, AM Gold Seventies Soft Rock Show

What started as a monthly Neil Diamond Tribute has grown into a soft rock explosion! Tony Starlight makes an evening out of performing songs from the stalwarts of the AM dial in the 1970s. Artists like Elton John, Neil Diamond, Carole King, Jim Croce, Little River Band, Carly Simon, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Simon, Barry Manilow and Billy Joel. One hit wonders like “Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl)”, “Dancin’ In The Moonlight”, “Welcome Back”, “Seasons In The Sun” and much, much more.

    Barry Manilow is an all-time great! So, yeah, he’s no Neil Diamond – but I clearly remember hearing Mandy for the first time when I was an adolescent girl and, now, to think back to 1974 – those were special times. And Barry did it again, and again with so many other great songs. So, yeah, Tony – he’s worthy of a tribute. Your audience will love it! And.I.Must.Be.There!

    Because aside from being a musical legend, he has done so much as a humanitarian with aiding in natural disaster relief.

    Because Barry was a ‘Studio Musician’ that I saw on tour first in 1980 and who I saw last for his ‘One Last Time Tour’ in Portland, Oregon and is still touring for his fans!!! He is a true blue spectacle, a miracle come true!!

    I love this without irony, maybe because I existed in the time cited in your reference.

    Because there is only ONE barry Manilow and no one compares! Lets see how Tony Starlight can pull this one off,
    I know he does a good tribute to Neil Diamond, lets see if his tribute to Barry is just as sweet! I am waiting, prove it to me!

    Why on earth should we do a tribute to Barry Manilow?
    Because… It’s Barry Manilow for cryin’ out loud! He’s “Like a Good Neighbor” and we’re “Stuck On” him!
    Why not “Give Your Face Something to Smile About”? “You deserve a Break today”, we should be “Feelin’ Free” and pay tribute to the greatest song writing and performing talent since Neil Diamond!
