DAYTON, OH (September 16, 2015) – On Saturday, October 3, 2015 at 8 pm in the Mead Theatre of the Schuster Center, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Conductor Patrick Reynolds, will present the first concert in the 2015–2016 Dayton Freight Rockin’ Orchestra Series, One Night of the Bee Gees. DPAA’s Innovation Partner for this 2015-2016 Ascend Season is the DP&L Foundation: Powering Innovation in the Performing Arts.

For one night only, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and guest artists Stayin' Alive will bring favorite Bee Gees songs to vivid life. Canadian band Stayin' Alive is the quintessential tribute band to the Bee Gees, capturing the excitement of live performance and the tender subtleties of the human voice of the famous Gibb Brothers.  The band is the largest and most definitive production of its kind, playing in both intimate settings and huge venues with large orchestras like the Dayton Philharmonic.  Vocalists Tony Mattina, Todd Sharman, and Joseph Janisse match style, range, and tone so closely to Robin, Barry, and Maurice Gibb that concertgoers will feel as though they have gone back in time to attend a live Bee Gees concert, backed by the rich sound of a full orchestra on stage.

Stayin' Alive and the DPO take Dayton on a trip to the 70s with the songs and sights of a full Bee Gees playlist, singing blockbusters such as "Night Fever," "Jive Talkin'," "How Deep Is Your Love," "You Should Be Dancing," "Nights on Broadway," “Tragedy,” and “Stayin' Alive.” In addition, they will showcase songs, written by the Bee Gees but taken to the top of the charts by other artists, including “Islands in the Stream,” “Grease,” “If I Can’t Have You,” and two smash hits by the Bee Gees’ younger brother Andy Gibb – “I Just Want to Be Your Everything” and “Shadow Dancin’”.  They will also perform softer, poetic ballads such as “Emotion,” “I Started a Joke," "Massachusetts," "Fanny Be Tender," "Words," “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart,” "To Love Somebody," and “More Than a Woman,” among other great hits.

All of these hit songs were written and produced by skilled singers and collaborative songwriters Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, who formed their family act, the Bee Gees, in 1958. Their talents shone brightest throughout the late 60s to early 70s rock and late 70s disco periods. Songs like “To Love Somebody” and “Holiday” reached the Top 20 in 1967 and made the Bee Gees a household name. They were responsible for the 1977 smash album Saturday Night Fever, which took over the airwaves around Christmastime of that year and ran away with 1978’s title of Album of the Year.  Selling over 40 million copies to date, it remains the number seven top-selling album of all time.

Tickets for One Night of the Bee Gees range from $29 to $81 and are available at Ticket Center Stage (937) 228-3630 or online at www.daytonperformingarts.org.  Senior, teacher and student discounts are available at the box office. For more information or to order subscriptions, including flexible subscription types that include performances by Dayton Philharmonic, Dayton Opera and Dayton Ballet, visit www.daytonperformingarts.org.

About the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance

The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance was formed in July 2012 as the result of a groundbreaking and innovative merger between the Dayton Ballet, the Dayton Opera, and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, they are the largest performing arts organization in the community, offering a tremendous variety of performance and education programs and setting a new standard for artistic excellence.  Dayton Performing Arts Alliance performances are made possible in part by Montgomery County and Culture Works, the single largest source of community funds for the arts and culture in the Miami Valley. The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance also receives partial funding from the Ohio Arts Council, a state agency created to foster and encourage the development of the arts and to preserve Ohio's cultural heritage. Funding from the Ohio Arts Council is an investment of state tax dollars that promotes economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohio residents.  The Dayton Performing Arts Alliance is proud to be one of five performing arts organizations in the country selected to receive a three-year "Music Alive" grant from New Music USA and the League of American Orchestras.
