WINDBER -—The Arcadia Theater, 1418 Graham Ave., Windber, will present the Christmas Show "Stayin' Alive," a tribute band to the Bee Gees, Friday.
Frank Cunsolo, the executive director and chairman of the board of directors, said he has had so many requests to bring the Bee Gee group in once again, "that we really couldn't' wait until next year."
"When we found out they are doing a Christmas show, 'Christmas with the Bee Gees,' we went over it with our board who thought it would be extra special for this time of the year," said Cunsolo.
The last time the group was in Windber it was a sell out and Cunsolo predicts the upcoming show will also be one. The group features Todd Sharman, Anthony Mattina and George Manz as the brothers Gibb.
"When we spoke with the fellows about coming back to the Arcadia, Todd said he remembers that it was such a great night, the theater was absolutely beautiful and the people were so nice," he said.
The Canadian group is backed up by four members of the band, drums, base guitar and background vocals and performs all the Bee Gees' Grammy award hits. Before they get into the disco era, which the Bee Gees are known for, Cunsolo said they will play many of the softer, poetic ballads, such as "I Started A Joke," Massachusetts," "Fanny be Tender," "Words" and "To Love Somebody" among other great hits.
Because this is a Christmas show, he added that there would be many traditional holiday songs performed.
"The Arcadia Theater will come alive with Christmas with the Bee Gees," Cunsolo said. "Patrons will definitely be not disappointed with this outstanding show."
Tickets can be purchased by calling 814-467-9070 at the Arcadia Theater, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
