Top Of The World A Carpenters Tribute featuring Debbie Taylor
Who can forget the incomparable music of the Carpenters? The popular brother/sister duo of the 70’s and early 80’s gave us 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. No doubt, you will be singing along as they 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. Debbie captures the warm tones and contralto range that made Karen’s voice so unique. Sit back and enjoy as Debbie and her band takes you on a nostalgic journey through the Carpenters greatest hits while sharing some of the backstories behind the music.
John Morgan – Dec 2022 Stadium Theatre RI
I spent over 30 years in radio broadcasting in major cities across the U.S. and have presented countless big name acts in concert. Never have I seen a show this powerful and this well done.
Debbie Taylor and her band are magical. Not only does she channel the buttery and lush voice of Karen Carpenter, she exudes her humbleness and engaging stage presence.
The musicians are spot on when it comes to recreating the genius of Richard Carpenter’s arrangements, and the singers reproduce the harmonies that put the Carpenters in a league of their own.
I wrote to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month to encourage them to step out of their boundaries and induct the Carpenters, since they made an exception this year with Dolly Parton. If they ever act on my suggestion, they would have to look no further than “Top of the World” to sing a Carpenter’s medley at the ceremony.
Debbie matched Karen’s three and a half octave range and was pitch perfect. I loved that she could drop her voice down into the low contralto range and sing the phrases that grab your heart and won’t let go.
Thank you Debbie and to your consummate professional bandmates. You brought the house down and lifted up the spirits of a spellbound crowd in preparation for the holidays.
Bless you all.
