AVENTURA CENTER PRESENTS “SIDE BY SIDE”
A STEVE LAWRENCE & EYDIE GORMÉ TRIBUTE
Filled with some of the most recognizable songs of the 20th Century, including “Blame It on the Bossa Nova," "Besame Mucho,” and “Sentimental Journey,” entertainers Natalie Cordone and Shawn Kilgo also pepper their performance with some very witty banter, funny personal stories and little known facts about America’s sweetheart duo. “Side By Side,” offers an energetic salute to the King and Queen of the Nightclub World.
In 1933, Gormé made her first television appearance, and met her future husband, singer Steve Lawrence, when they were booked for the original “The Tonight Show” hosted by Steve Allen. In 1958, they starred together in The Steve Lawrence-Eydie Gormé Show, a summer replacement for The Steve Allen Show. In 1957 they were married in Las Vegas and became famous on stage for their act which involved tart yet affectionate, and sometimes bawdy, references to their married life, which remained a feature of their live act.
In 1960 they were awarded the Grammy Award for Best Performance by a vocal group for the album “We Got Us.” They were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1995.
