Sing Us a Song, You’re the Story Man

When you think about it, Jimmy Fallon is kind of old-fashioned. He writes thank you notes. He’s a gracious host. He sings in a barbershop quartet. In fact, he and his three other songsters recently serenaded Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden, singing Happy Birthday to the piano man with an audience of 20,000. What does a barbershop singer during their off hours? Well, if you’re Tom Shillue, when you’re not singing four-part harmony on The Tonight Show you tour with Jim Gaffigan and you host Funny Story at the Brooklyn Brewery. Come to think of it, storytelling is also sort of old-fashioned, though these stories are anything but stodgy. This month’s line-up is an all-comedian sweep with Baron Vaughn, Ann Carr, Adam Newman, Jamie Greenberg and Dave Juskow. If you like to laugh, you’d be nuts not to come to this show. Your $10 ticket gets you a night of storytelling and a beer.

Paul Teska's Story

PDFPrintE-mail


Is it the joy derived from singing tags late into the night? Is it the satisfaction of delivering a well-executed competition set? Or is there something more? Is it actually about those who sit on the other side of the footlights?

For Paul Teska, this perspective became a dying man's passion, a mission to share the gift of singing with as many people as possible in what little time he has left. The Harmony Foundation hopes this story of life, legacy, mortality, and the enduring gift of music will both uplift and inspire you.

This video was captured and edited by Shawn York for Harmony Foundation.

We have been proudly making music together for now over 75 years, and if you think the first 75 years has been exciting, wait until you see what's next!
