jimwitter450Award-winning singer/songwriter Jim Witter and his band will make a return visit to Bryan

for Live On Stage on Monday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m. Jim is back with his brand new show, “I

Write the Songs: The Music of Barry Manilow”. The multi-media production is being

generously co-sponsored by Community Hospitals and Wellness Centers and by Williams

County Community Concert Association Live On Stage.

The musical event will take place in Bryan’s Arts & Education Auditorium on South Beech

Street. Individual tickets at the door will be $20 (adult) and $5 (student). The concert roster for

2017-2018 will also be announced during that night’s Membership Campaign launch. Call 419-

636-3550 or 419-636- 7099 for further information.

A native of Canada, Jim has been performing since he was a child, and professionally for the

last 30 years. He has won numerous awards for his songs and albums in Canada. And, his

inspirational album, “Forgiveness”, was nominated for a Dove Award in Nashville, TN.

For the show in Bryan, attendees will be able to reminisce as Jim and his band recreate the

classic songs of the iconic Barry Manilow. Jim has chosen the best from Manilow’s songbook.

Jim’s rich, powerful voice and infectious personality create a comfortable rapport with his

audiences. Songs like “Mandy” and “Could It Be Magic” are just a few you will hear. Get ready

for lots of audience participation and lots of laughs.

You will also learn about some TV jingles that Barry Manilow wrote. You’ll be singing along

on songs such as “Can’t Smile Without You” while the lyrics appear on a screen.

Previously, Jim produced and starred in “The Piano Man”, a musical journey of Billy Joel and

Elton John hits. This led to other shows, including “The Music of Simon and Garfunkel” and a

show highlighting songs of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

Jim still lives in Southern Ontario, Canada, with his beautiful wife of 25 years, Rebecca, and

their four musically-talented children, James, Roslyn, Ryan, and Luke.
