Feelin’ Groovy at SJCC November 22
South Jackson Civic Association in Tullahoma will open the new Performing Arts Series on Friday, November 22, at 7:30 p.m. with Jim Witter’s Tribute to Simon and Garfunkel, “Feelin’ Groovy.”
Jim is from Ontario, Canada, and has had success on both sides of the Canadian/U.S. border with his vocal and piano talent. His singer/songwriter efforts have also been recognized by Sony Music in Canada, Curb Records of Nashville,
and have achieved Billboard status numerous times.
On tour, Jim Witter has captured his audiences with his friendly demeanor. When he goes down memory lane with tributes to the music of the ‘60s, audience members feel as though they’ve been transported back in time.
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel formed the group “Tom and Jerry” in 1957, and had their first taste of success with “Hey, School Girl.” As “Simon and Garfunkel,” the duo rose to fame in 1965 with the hit “The Sound of Silence.”
They went on to achieve many more hits with songs such as “I Am a Rock,” “Homeward Bound,” “A Hazy Shade of Winter,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Boxer,” “Cecilia,” and “Scarborough Fair.”
Jim Witter’s tribute to Simon and Garfunkel is helped by his smooth tenor voice and his infectious personality. This event will reach out to all ages.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students. However, it is not too late to acquire Season Tickets to all Performing Arts shows. That would include Fri. Dec. 12th for “The Return,” a tribute show to The Beatles, and Sat. March 14th
