A live musical presentation from Robert DiCicco
Here’s a great live entertainment opportunity. If you, your organization, or someone you know is looking for live entertainment you’ll want to know about “Love Letters from the Front”.
The show was conceived back in 2017 when Massachusetts actor and musician/singer Robert DiCicco was approached by John O’Neil, who books musical acts for the Napoleon Room at the Club Café. “He offered me a few dates, and I decided on November 11th. I wrote it as a tribute to the veterans of World War II (1940 – 1945), which was my motivation, obviously. Suffice it to say they moved it to the larger room, and it was sold out,” DiCicco told IMAGINE.
Recently, Bob DiCicco and Wendee Glick have been performing tunes that were made famous by the likes of Bing Crosby, Benny Goodman and the big bands of the era, using high-quality custom tracks from a Bose LI Pro Sound System. They have been performing “Love Letters” mainly at Assisted and Independent Living facilities. The show is filled with mega-nostalgia and the story is the reading of the actual letters from our servicemen and women to their loved ones
Admission is free at assisted living centers (since the shows are paid for by the host facility). There is also a multi-media portion of the show.
Audience responses have been phenomenal. “In truth, everyone who sees it, always shows a great deal of gratitude and tell us how much it means to them.” Robert DiCicco says, “My goal is to present this to Colleges, Universities and any other venues that would appreciate this presentation and ultimately, I hope to perform the show at USO stages and military bases.”
The cost of hosting “Love Letters from the Front” is between $300 and $500.
