On Tour October -December 2023 Yesterday Once More, The Sound Of Karen Carpenter
Do you remember the first time you heard the voice of Karen Carpenter?
Do you remember the feeling you had the first time you experienced that sound?
Let this show take you right back to that time, to that place and make it yesterday once more.
This is a celebration of those songs and 'that' sound told via the velvety voice of singer/actress Joanne O'Brien. Through a cavalcade of iconic classics, Joanne illuminates the musical diversity, pop culture and political climate of a time in history when the world first fell inlove with the magical sound of Karen and Richard Carpenter.
They were totally enthralled with Joanne and her uncanny voice resemblance to Karen Carpenter's. She put on an awesome concert of Carpenter hits along with blending in her sense of humor, stories, and fun songs from the 70s era. Our audience loved her and she related to everyone of all ages very well. People were singing with the whole concert!!!
Thank you so much for a perfect night at our magical old theater! Funny, nostalgic, romantic- and maybe a single tear... spot on Joanne. - Gil and Judy

I attended your performance tonight in Holyoke CO and could not have enjoyed it more!! You were absolutely amazing, as was your accompanist, and brought true joy to many hearts this evening!!! Thank you for making this world so much brighter by sharing your talents, as well as reminding us of Karen Carpenter’s tremendous contributions to the musical industry! I went home with my car windows rolled down and sang with all my heart and soul the song that you ended with: “Sing”! Thank you so much for sharing your gift!!!
