Warfield Concert: Night Fever – A tribute to the Bee Gees – Helena-West Helena
Night Fever is the ultimate tribute to the Bee Gees, featuring the three Brothers Gibb, two backup singers, guitar, bass, drums, violins, and horns. With outstanding vocals and an all around amazing show, Night Fever performs more than 25 of the Bee Gees hits including: “I Started a Joke,” “Night Fever,” “Jive Talking,” “How Deep is Your Love,” “You Should Be Dancing,” and “Staying Alive”. For five decades – a time span more than any other group in pop history – the Bee Gees outwitted the international music scene with their incredible tenacity to remain current through all the eras of contemporary music. The close high harmonies of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb made the Bee Gees an impossible attraction to launch a salute to…..until Night Fever. The vocal matchings of Night Fever’s John Acosta, Joe Varga, and Carm Castiglione create an eerie sense of seeing the brothers Gibb in concert. Night Fever is an all-Canadian cast from Ontario, backed by professional studio musicians, that captures the sound and look of the Bee Gees.
