Frank’s Tribute and the All-Star Band pays homage to popular artists of the 50s, 60s, and 70s
As part of the Kroll’s West Local Series, Let Me Be Frank Productions returns to the Ashwaubenon Performing Arts Center on Saturday, January 21 at 7:30 p.m. with Frank’s Tribute and the All-Star Band.
Combining comedy bits with songs from Elvis and other indelible artists, Frank’s Tribute delivers an homage to music history that balances energy and humor with respect to the source material.
“Sure, we look like and sound like the artists we impersonate, but we do the funny side of the artists,” explained Frank Hermans, who will perform as Elvis. “Elvis was funny, and I know I am not Elvis so you get a little Let Me Be Frank’s in all of our performances.”
Featured artists include Elvis Presley portrayed by Frank Hermans, Reba McEntire portrayed by Amy Riemer, Barbra Streisand portrayed by Lisa Borley, Karen Carpenter portrayed by Kasey Schumacher, George Jones portrayed by Mike Hermans, and Paul Evansen as Neil Diamond.
The performance will also feature Frank’s Tribute All-Star Band, winner of “Best of the Bay” for several years. The musicians include Andrew Klaus on drums, Pat Hibbard on bass, Tony Pilz on keys and John Singer on guitar.
Frank’s Tribute was invited to share this performance at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas in March of 2022, and then again earlier this month. Attendees will see the same show Las Vegas visitors and residents enjoyed, without having to travel.
Led by Frank Hermans, a local musician and comedy writer, Let Me Be Frank Productions has been entertaining Northeast Wisconsin for two decades. To date, the comedy troupe has created and performed more than 120 all-original musicals for more than 300,000 audience members and has no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
