Rhythm N' Sound--A musical review from the 1940s to the 1980s!
The fantastic trio of musicians, Rhythm N' Sound, perform a host of songs ranging from the 1940s to the 1980s. You'll be pleased to hear hits from Doo-Wop, classic rock, rock-n-roll, and Motown!
Lead vocalist Frank Resola and his fellow bandmates Joe Moscato and John D'Amaro are all Jersey-born musicians who have spent their lives in various bands and performing. Two of the bandmates formed Rhythm N' Sound when they taught music education in the Howell School District. Together, the trio plays for a variety of musical venues, libraries, and private functions across the state of New Jersey. This will certainly be a musical treat!
Foreign Film: Theeb
The 2016 Oscar Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film!
1916. While war rages in the Ottoman Empire, Hussein raises his younger brother Theeb in a Bedouin community. The brothers quiet existence is suddenly interrupted when a British Army officer and his guide ask Hussein to escort them to a water well located along the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. So as not to dishonor his recently deceased father, Hussein agrees to lead them on the long and treacherous journey. The mischievous Theeb secretly chases after his brother, but the group soon find themselves trapped amidst threatening terrain riddled with Ottoman mercenaries, Arab revolutionaries, and outcast Bedouin raiders. Naji Abu Nowar's powerful and assured directorial debut, set in the land of Lawrence of Arabia, is a wondrous 'Bedouin Western' about a boy who, in order to survive, must become a man and live up to the name his father gave him.
