ELKHART — Top of The World featuring Debbie Taylor in “A Carpenter’s Christmas” with special guest The WhiskeyBelles, will perform at The Lerner Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 7.
Tickets for the show will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 25.
Top of the World is the world’s premiere tribute to The Carpenters. Fronted by singer Debbie Taylor, her Karen Carpenter vocal resemblance is astonishing. She is backed by a seven-piece band consisting of top-notch, professional industry musicians who have had amazing careers in their own right.
The band members are all multi-instrumentalists and at times use three keyboards to recreate the incredibly complex arrangements created by Richard Carpenter. The attention to detail paired with saxophone, trumpet, flute and many more instruments complete every song to perfection.
Who can forget the incomparable music of The Carpenters? The popular brother/sister duo of the ’70s and early ’80s performed some of the most unforgettable ballads and melodic pop songs of all time.
This Carpenters tribute band brings the most authentic versions of the Carpenters music to the stage. They will perform hits like “Close To You,” “We’ve Only Just Begun,” “Rainy Days and Mondays,” “Please Mr. Postman” and “Yesterday Once More,” to name a few. Taylor captures the warm tones and contralto range that made Karen’s voice so unique.
Sit back and enjoy as Taylor and her band take attendees on a nostalgic journey through the Carpenters greatest hits while sharing some of the backstories behind the music. With Christmas songs like “Merry Christmas Darling” and “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays,” attendees will be sure to feel the holiday spirit.
