Valentines Date Night: Music of Mathis Saturday at The Brock
Published 9:24 am Thursday, February 10, 2022
Davie County Arts Council will host a tribute by vocalist David Robbins to the music of Johnny Mathis on Saturday, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Robbins resembles and has vocal abilities that emulate the artistry of Mathis.
The Los Angeles Herald Examiner stated this: “Robbins genius for imitation is devastatingly accurate, his diction and intonation are excellent; his range allows him to modulate at will and his jazz-oriented sense of time is flawless. His high level of artistry and personality radiates.”
Then there is this statement from Variety: “Robbins reveals an ability not only to sizzle on the up-beats, but can melt the ballads as well. Robbins is known as a master showman and being the best Mathis impressionist.”
He has opened for artists such as the late Aretha Franklin, Rich Little Jr., Junior Walker and The All Stars, Fifth Dimension, The Contours, and others.
The arts council chose Robbins for what has become known as their “Valentine’s Date Night at the Brock”. Tickets are available by calling the Box Office (Mon.-Fri. noon-5 p.m.) 336-751-3000 or at www.daviearts.org.
