Calling All Divas

CALLING ALL DIVAS is a pop, rock, soul, and country hit parade – positively affirming the power of music, friendship, and sisterhood through the journey of Frankie, a struggling, wanna-be hit songwriter, as he scours the city to find the next “Un4gettable” female voice in a desperate plan to save a faltering iconic music nightspot from closing its doors. Along the way, he gloriously finds far more than he could have ever imagined!

Academy Award-winning songwriter Franke Previte (Dirty Dancing) and world-renowned live show specialist Michael LaFleur (Disney, Universal, Celine Dion, etc.) have joined forces to deliver this unique, musical celebration of the timeless tunes and talents of Etta James, Carole King, The Pointer Sisters, Kelly Clarkson, Aretha Franklin, Miley Cyrus, Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, and many more … as well as original favorites by Previte himself.

You’ll have “The Time of Your Life!”

ELECTO ELECTRO 2020 – Interactive Workshop and Artist Talk

Electo Electro 2020 is an interactive installation combining audience participation, music, news footage, and politics. The project allows participants to remix videos from political rallies, debates, and news in a structured sixteen beat loop. The touchscreen design is a parody of the system employed by the Accuvote, a voting system that is difficult to audit and susceptible to hacking. The parody continues into the format of the installation itself which will resemble a polling station. There will be an artist talk at 6:00 followed by a Max MSP Jitter workshop at 7:30 pm.
