On Wednesday and Thursday, September 28-29, 2011, beginning at 7 p.m., the evenings rocked with none other than Ed Sullivan and his “show” held at The Stage in Bonita Springs, Florida.
Baby Boomers, among others, were thrilled the week before when The Stage hosted The Led Zeppelin Tribute, and were thrilled again when Mr. Sullivan came on board this week!
Tribute artist George Trullinger as Ed Sullivan made everyone a believer. The Baby Boomers wondered why they were seeing the show in color – for those who remember the real Ed Sullivan Show, CBS aired the show in the usual black and white of the late 1940s – 1960s (color was introduced in fall 1965).
This week’s Sullivan appeared in his traditional suit with typical Sullivan mannerisms, spoke in the none other than Sullivan voice, including his dry humor. To top it off he walked the stiff walk and kept the audience spellbound and in stitches all at the same time.
For those who do not know, Trullinger also performs as other tributes. The famous Mick Jagger and Buddy Holly are two he is known for (playing the guitar is another of his many talents). The famous Legends in Concert is one of many stages he has performed on.
Las Vegas, New York City, Canada, Japan, Russia and Germany have also been fortunate enough to enjoy Trullinger’s music and comedy. Fans can follow George Trullinger at Facebook.
The Stage has more wonderful acts to follow in the coming weeks. Some of them will be tributes to: Divas by Dawn, The Beatles, Santana, Jimmy Buffett, Doobie Brothers, Elton John, The Rolling Stones and more.
