Showy, flashy, ostentatious, garish, sensational, vivid. These are all words that apply to piano maestro Liberace, the original ‘King of Bling’ and arguably the most flamboyant entertainer of the century.
It is time to shine! Popular pianist Rocco de Villiers pays tribute to the “king of bling”, the most flamboyant entertainer ever: pianist Liberace.
Just before his death 20 years ago in 1987, on February 4 Liberace stated that he wants to be remembered for 3 things : his shows, music and costumes.
After Rocco’s sell out seasons at the Rhumbelow and the rest of the country, Rocco is back with this very popular over the top production celebrating the glamour and outrageous nous of Liberace, the most over the top performer after Lady Gaga.
The show has, however a few new additions. New and bigger candelabra, all the costumes, the quirkiness.
But most importantly all new music in the updated performance from Rocco’s new album, including most of Liberace later interpretations. The new music include, Don’t cry for me Argentina, Music of the night, Lara’s Theme from Doctor Zhivago, Music Box Dancer, Ballade for Adeline and Sleepy Shores.
The perfect show for the perfect night. Come and listen and see all the bling, the balls, the sequince, furs and feathers – and the piano excellence of Liberocco.
Rocco’s cd’s, cocktails books, aprons and t-shirts available at the door.
