Tracy Newman and the Reinforcements
It's a cold drink on a hot day. A relief. When you see Tracy Newman and the Reinforcements you'll cry, laugh and chill ... and there will be moments of serious reflection as well. This show has it all. And as for hoping to hum the "hit song" as you leave, well, as Harriet "Ain't No Way to Treat a Lady" Schock says, "Tracy's melodies have an inevitable, yet unpredictable quality which makes them pleasing on first hearing and better each time, and then you can't get them out of your head." So, be careful what you wish for. Tracy's band includes some interesting characters, one of whom is John Cartwright, who was Belafonte's bass player for 35 years.
A word from one satisfied customer "Daddy, when we hear Tracy sing in the car, is she singing the same song at her house?" Molly Fisher, Age 5, after requesting to listen to Tracy Newman's new CD
About Tracy Newman:
For 20 years, Tracy Newman was a TV writer. She started on Cheers. In 1997, she won an Emmy and a Peabody Award for co-writing the ground-breaking "coming out" episode of Ellen. In 2001 she co-created the ABC comedy, According to Jim. All along, Tracy was playing guitar and writing songs, and in 2004, she quit TV to become a full time singer/songwriter. Playing open mics at small clubs in LA, she was joined by the musicians who are now known as the Reinforcements. They wanted to play with Tracy, so they got up on stage with her and stayed. This show is five, sometimes six people, doing exactly what they want.
