    It’s the Rhode Island version of Saturday Night Live with the show's celebs like the late Providence Mayor Buddy Cianci, TV personality Gene Valicenti, Gov. Gina Raimondo, President Trump, and two gum-chewing, gossiping “hairdressahs,” Cheryl and Rhonda from North Providence and Cranston. President Trump sings “Rockin’ Robin,” (Tweet tweet tweet) and of course Mr. Rhody, the Follies premier dialect coach, complete with speech flashcards, lectures at each show. “I am not here so much as a puffahmah, as much as I’m here to ejukay youze." Youze get the idea. Judge Frank Caprio holds court and that one Johnston turkey who wouldn’t leave pops up in puppet form, gold rings, fake Rolex, and blue alligator shoes. Don't miss this show!

    MAYER KIRBY MAYER ACOUSTIC GROUP -

    We are Thrilled to welcome back Singer, songwriter, guitarist, storyteller, sailor and road warrior Scott Kirby. MAYER KIRBY MAYER ACOUSTIC GROUP Singer-songwriters Peter Mayer and Scott Kirby met in 1991 in Key West at the original Margaritaville Café. Peter, fresh from his debut Warner Brothers’ album Piece of Paradise, had come down to work with Jimmy Buffett. Kirby had recently arrived from New Hampshire to rekindle his love affair with music and explore the art of songwriting. The two began a musical friendship that included co-writing, performing, and the record label Little Flock Music. In 2013, Peter son’s Brendan set out on his own musical journey, which included joining his father and Kirby on their annual east coast acoustic tour. The tour features the three on acoustic instruments and percussion. Peter Mayer, who melds influences from jazz, rock and pop in his stunning guitar playing and songwriting, has released a dozen of his own albums while holding down his longtime job as lead guitarist and songwriting collaborator in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band. He has shared the stage with everyone from Chicago to Joni Mitchell in his 30-year career. Scott Kirby, a self-taught finger-style acoustic guitarist and songwriter who has released eight CDs, says most of his influences come from the singer-songwriters and folk-rock artists of the 1970s. When not touring around North America May through October, he regularly performs in Key West at the Smokin’ Tuna Saloon, a 200-seat music club he opened with partners in 2011. Brendan Mayer recently released his first CD, Getaway Car. He spent much of 2014 touring with Jimmy Buffett as the featured guest artist each night. Brendan has inherited a wonderful voice from his father but has honed his own rootsy style performing with his band The Turf.
