The original DivaI Diana Ross has won a dozen Grammys, sold over 100 million records world-wide, and was nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Billie Holiday in The Lady Sings the Blues. In 1976, Billboard named her the greatest female entertainer of the century, and there was a lot more to come from Ross after that. What really matters is that Ross remains an enthralling stage presence, a singer of such poise and remarkable vocal gifts that she's able to hold an audience in the palm of her hand from the moment she steps out into the spotlight right up until she leaves the stage. Ross' career spans some 60 years, from her work with The Supremes {"Baby Love," %Vhere Did Our Love Go?'} to her solo material (=I'm Coming Out," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"). REGENT THEATRE 7 Medford Street, Arlington, MA 781-646-4849 Janis Joplin's Original Band - BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY -- August Ii, 2017. The band that launched the career of Janis Joplin, re- corded Cheap Thrills, one of the greatest albums of all time, and were pioneers of the San Francisco sound in the time of the Summer of Love now features two original members: Peter Albin (bass and vocals} and Dave Getz (drums}. Albin founded the band in 1965 and Getz joined in March 1966. They have been playing together as Big Brother since then. Big Brother's lead singer, Eileen Humphreys, has the mind-blowing vo- cal chops required to do all of the Joplin classics with total authority and feeling. She is truly one of the great Janis inter- preters and blues singers who can stand up to the inevitable comparisons (they know there will never be another Janis) without being an imitator. Tom Finch (guitar/vocals) and Kate Russo (violin/ keyboard/vocals} are both dynamic, exciting, aad virtuoso musicians who bring their energy, style, and perfect understan(ing of the music to complete the mix.
