GABRIEL BELLO SALUTES STEVIE WONDER
The Downtown Cabaret Theatre of Bridgeport is inviting you to commune with the legendary Stevie Wonder and his impressive musical stylings, courtesy of entertainer Gabriel Bello and his band “Natural Wonder.” Tonight, Saturday, February 22 at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., you will be treated royally to Stevie’s greatest hits like “Isn’t She Lovely,” a song Stevie wrote for his daughter and which Bello sings in honor of his own new three month old girl.
Other tunes will include “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” “Superstition,” “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” “Ribbon in the Sky” and the wonderful list goes on. Bello and his great combo will transport you to heavenly plains and you’re encouraged to get up and dance your way around the room.
Bello, inspired by his percussionist father, early on took the musical road, singing in church choirs and perfecting his abilities on flute, saxophone, harmonica and piano. Joining him on stage are Chris Revels on bass, Justin Allen on drums, Steve Daley on saxophone and Peter Gray on electric guitar.
For tickets ($47), call the Downtown Cabaret Theatre, 263 Golden Hill Street, Bridgeport at 203-576-1636 or online at www.downtowncabaret.org. Doors open 30 minutes before the performance and you are welcome to bring goodies to eat and drink at your ringside table.
Let Gabriel Bello use all his natural wonders to bring Stevie Wonder’s talents front and center, with his signature braids, wraparound dark glasses and smooth, electric voice. The resemblance is a total triumph and tribute.
