Boomer Power is a lighthearted revue that explores the Baby Boomer experience through original music, comedy, and satire. The highly interactive show also features audience-involving skits, boomer humor, and satirical observations.
"As if being a child of the sixties isn't enough, navigating these digitally-driven, Smart Phone- fueled, social media mania times provided more than enough inspiration for the show," says Billy Mitchell, the show’s creator and songwriter.
The songs in the show contain the usual mix of satire and sentiment that characterizes Mitchell’s original music, with songs like "Assisted Livin'," "You Still Got it," "Re-Tired," "Gettin' Old Ain't for Sissies," "Prescription Drugs," and "I Wish I Could Remember What I Said I'd Never Forget," as well as Rhode Island-based tunes like "I Know a Guy" and "Meet Me under the Shepard's Clock," which have been getting a lot of notoriety of late.
Billy Mitchell has been writing and performing for over 30 years at many local and regional venues, including AS220, Providence 375 Celebration at PPAC, Charlie Hall's Ocean State Follies, and numerous Rhode Island waterfront venues. His career has also included many radio and television appearances.
Joining Billy for the evening is Paul Pasch, a true songsmith, a crafter of songs that highlight common human experiences and evoke feelings of joy, laughter, and sometimes tears. Paul has been nominated for three Motif Magazine Music Awards: Best Singer Songwriter, Best Male Vocalist, and Best Local CD.
