STAND BACK I’M GONNA UKE: AN EVENING OF OLD-TIMEY MUSIC (Seth Reichgott): Fringe Review 32

A man in perfectly tailored orange pinstripes gives audiences a bad case of loving ukulele on late summer nights in Plays & Players’ Quigs Pub. Known as Slim Bob Slim  (Seth Reichgott), the solo act of STAND BACK I’M GONNA UKE: AN EVENING OF OLD-TIMEY MUSIC plays ‘Come on Eileen’, ‘Walking on Sunshine’,  ‘Tainted Love’, and more “songs that live in all our hearts.”

Stand Back Im Gonna Uke An Evening of Old-Timey MusicTo break up the “old-timey songs about love” among other tunes, Slim lips a dazzling monologue about the greatest love of his life, love letters, love taps of sorts, and a handful of the lovely moments that happened for him between falling hard and losing it all. Cozy Quigs transforms from the old, shaded after-hours spot into a full-blown amphitheater sparkling bright, with just the tiniest bit of imagination. Whether riding a fierce tsunami of love or looking for love in all the wrong places, Slim is sure to please even the most skeptical of Fringe Festival goers.
