Under the creative direction of the National Stage Company of Canada comes an exciting west coast premiere concert celebrating the iconic NAT KING COLE. After his highly successful Canadian debut this past December in ‘Home for the Holiday’s – A Nat King Cole Christmas’ here on Vancouver Island, acclaimed New York Actor & Singer JAMES RICH returns to the stage to headline this stirring new production featuring over 2 hours of the legendary Nat King Cole songbook. With incredible musical direction by Grammy award nominated performing artist and arranger, MATT FALKER from San Diego, California and accompanied by the electrifying talents of MICHAEL ARBOU on drums and CAILUN CAMPBELL on bass, this truly memorable evening of song and storytelling weaves together the journey of this iconic musical figure to international stardom. Featured musical selections include 'Nature Boy', 'Smile", 'I Wish You Love', 'Autumn Leaves', 'Too Young', 'Mona Lisa', 'Route 66', and 'Unforgettable', among countless others. Set against a stunning and elegant background, ‘UNFORGETTABLE - THE NAT KING COLE SONGBOOK’, brings the musical genius of Nat King Cole in a style that defines his timeless legacy. With his rich and velvety voice, natural charm, and dynamic stage presence, JAMES RICH captures not only the tone, feel, style and beauty of the lyrics, but the man behind it.
