Unforgettable: the Music of Nat King Cole

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Unforgettable: the Music of Nat King Cole on Saturday, November 17th at 8:00pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. Unforgettable: The Music of Nat King Cole is the third of five shows in the Society’s 2012/13 Theatre Series.

The legacy of Nat King Cole endures through his contribution to American music, his smooth jazz stylings, his charisma and his success during the mid-20th century.

Vancouver based actor/singer Don Stewart first produced the show in 2009 and continues to perform to the delight of audiences everywhere.  On stage, Stewart serves as narrator and moves in and out of character as required to tell the story of Cole’s life through scenes, stories and nearly 40 memorable songs, including popular hits Sweet LorraineMona LisaRambling RoseUnforgettable and more!

“Nobody can be Nat King Cole”, says Stewart, “So I don’t even want to try. I just present what happened.”

For the November 17th performance, Stewart will be joined by Cayla Brooke as the legendary Peggy Lee. The singers are backed by a live jazz band featuring Ron Johnston on piano, Dave Guiney on bass, Chris Nordquist on drums, and Dave Ivaz on guitar.

Apart from his work on Unforgettable, Stewart also works in film and television. An extremely dedicated performer, Stewart has released two CDs of his own unique cover stylings.

Unforgettable: the Music of Nat King Cole delivers an extraordinary evening of music showcasing one of the most beloved performers of all time.
