Feb 12   2015-16 GALA Indoor Concert Series
Jerry & Nora with The Revue
White HOT country Soul


Jerome Unger and Nora Wolff, have had the great fortune to record 3 albums at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee. This is the small studio where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Howling Wolf, Ike Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis, and other Rock and Roll, Blues, Soul, and Country greats got their start. Over the past few years they have incorporated music songs from a wide variety of artists from recent Pop and Country hits, to classic Soul and Rock & Roll tunes. Their live shows are high energy, foot stomping, dance floor filling events. The show has something for everyone. Nonstop music and action and a fast pace, is the norm. The band can turn on a dime and match songs to the groove of the audience.
