|While Mallory & McCall's play list boasts more than three solid hours of Irish songs alone, we have extensive repertoires of other material including, as you have seen, Sea Songs and Pirates, Dickens, Victorian and the Civil War. But we also enjoy celebrating the Wild West, presenting Renaissance and Folk music, and we love classic Motion Picture, Broadway and theatrical tunes from revues, vaudeville and other vintage entertainments (some of the "Classics" we've written ourselves--see our book "And Then We Wrote...and Re-Wrote...).
Our newest attraction, "Americana: In the Good Ol' Summertime," is one of our most fun and delightful shows. It sparks that enchanting yearning for the often mythical "good old days" that live on in folklore and popular entertainment. In this show, we feature upbeat and fun popular music highlighting the "Gay '90s" as well as sparkling popular tunes from Tin Pan Alley through Broadway's golden age. You will hear large doses of George M. Cohen, Irving Berlin, Rogers and Hammerstein and many other great American songwriters. The performance can be unabashedly patriotic, with stirring songs from "You're a Grand Old Flag," "Seventy-Six Trombones," to "Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor," and scores of other songs that celebrate the best feelings of our country, Norman Rockwell style. Or we can celebrate with the songs that have brightened generations of Americans from "Shine on Harvest Moon" to "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'."
Garbed in period-style clothing reminiscent of those wonderful period musicals of the 1940s, we brighten up any event with songs that make the audience feel good. Often they enjoy singing along. A big favorite with seniors and kids alike. Great for the Fourth of July, picnics, fairs, theme parties, Ice Cream Socials or as an entertaining concert. Absolutely perfect for an old-time political rally! As for all of M & Mc's presentations, the slant of "Americana: In the Good Ol' Summertime" will be tailored to fit the event. We can stress the patriotic or, if you wish, sprightly fun songs from "Mairsy Doats" to "Meet Me in St. Louis, Louis."

GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME!
