Band plays tribute to The Carpenters

By From page A15 | April 25, 2014

It’s a trip back in time with the classic songs and sounds of the musical duo The Carpenters, with a concert by Close to You at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the Woodland Opera House, 340 Second St. in Woodland.
With songs like “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “For All We Know” and “Rainy Days and Mondays,” The Carpenters left an indelible mark on the culture and music of the 1970s and 1980s.

Michelle Whited leads the popular Close to You musical group, which pays tribute to The Carpenters and their music. Reproducing Karen Carpenter’s memorable vocals along with Don Stamey on piano and a live band, they recreate the signature sounds that made The Carpenters so distinctive.

Other songs include “Top of the World,” “I Won’t Last a Day Without You,” “Superstar” and, of course, “Close to You.”
Tickets are $24 general and $12 for children 12 and under. For more information, visit www.woodlandoperahouse.org.
