South Jersey Country-Rock Songstress Returns to Philly by Popular Demand with Vegas-style ‘Feast for the Senses’ on July 18th, 2013.
Whether your musical palette drives you toward soothing lounge vocals, engaging and upbeat showmanship or homegrown country roots, there’s a strong and mighty fusion of all three in Doreen Taylor Live – a special one-night only Vegas-style “feast for the senses” that brings the sultry South Jersey songstress back home to the theater where she was discovered.
Returning by popular demand to a more theatrical Philly venue following her sold out World Café Live show in the spring, the award-winning recording artist raises the bar to further celebrate the launch of her 2013 tour for her breakout album, Magic, on Thursday, July 18 at the Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St., Philadelphia. Show time is 7 p.m., Doors open at 6:30 with special guest Matt Santry.
Tickets on sale NOW at PrinceMusicTheater.org, TicketPhiladelphia.org, by calling 215-893-1999, or at the Prince Music Theater walk-up box office (open Mon-Fri from 1-5PM). This performance also will support Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Bucks County, for which Doreen will be the honorary chair of its 50th Anniversary Gala in November.
“Magic”, showcases Doreen’s talents as not only a vocalist, but as a songwriter and musician. She prides herself on the raw, emotional vibe of her lyrics and abilities to engage an audience.. For DOREEN TAYLOR LIVE, she’s designed an audience interactive production that truly embodies the title of “Magic” by showcasing its grandeur with sexy female dancers, special effects and lighting, a 12-piece band and plenty more surprises – all delivered with a little bit of country, a lot of rock ‘n’ roll, and a Vegas flair.
“We wanted to bring in a show that’s a feast for all the senses,” she says. “We don’t park and bark. We don’t just sit there and play. I don’t hold back. It’s truly a take-no-prisoners performance.”
Returning to the Prince Music Theater holds emotional significance to Doreen as well. She was discovered there as a student starring as Christine in “Phantom of the Opera,” so returning as a headliner touted by the Huffington Post as “an excellent performing artist to keep your eyes on” is indeed quite special.
Doreen’s hometown upbringing gave way to a sudden and remarkable career at an early age when her town, family, congregation and most importantly Doreen herself, realized the true power and strength of her voice. While some singers feel performing since childhood has burned them out or shown them the wrong side of the industry, she believes her young start has only made her stronger as a vocalist, songwriter and performer. Doreen lays out all her emotions on stage to be transported into the hearts and ears of everyone in attendance. Showmanship has always been as important to her as the music behind it. And DOREEN TAYLOR LIVE showcases her evolution as an artist to be reckoned with.
“Without straying too far from my roots, I wanted to make it accessible for everyone,” she says. “Whether you like country, rock, pop, jazz or even funk, it’s gonna be right there for you. It’s a beautiful show.”
