UCLA Live presents the Official 20th Century Anniversary concert produced by Hal Wilner at Royce Hall. A few artists participating in this musical performance are: David Johansen, Van Dyke Parks, Marshall Allen, Ken Nordine, and Terry Adams.
From the inspired mind of record producer Hal Willner comes another offbeat evening of music celebrating the 20th anniversary of Stay Awake. Willner’s historic compilation of music from the Vintage Disney Songbook features work by an eclectic range of artists from Suzanne Vega and Los Lobos to Ringo Starr and Bonnie Raitt. The soon-to-be-announced lineup will include many of the album’s original performers in this one-time-only event. Best known for a groundbreaking series of multi-artist tribute albums interpreting the work of composers such as Nino Rota, Kurt Weill and Thelonious Monk, Willner set out to match surprising material with extraordinary musicians from the nether regions of pop, rock, jazz and the avant-garde. The concert features a mix of enchanting, moody and, at times, sardonic adaptations of tunes from The Jungle Book, Snow White, Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio, and more.
