The Legendary Pineapple Skinners
Leeds Theatre and Arts Center is delighted to announce that The Legendary Pineapple Skinners will be performing at the center, located at 8140 Parkway Drive, Leeds, Alabama 35094, on Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 7:00 PM. Price of admission is $10.00.
The Pineapple Skinners have based their sound on Dixieland jazz, but since their beginnings as a group in 1997, have evolved their own unique and eclectic twist, combining traditional jazz with such unique elements as big band tunes, ukulele, and even lap steel. Despite their originality, this group does play traditional gigs, in addition to weddings, funerals, and the occasional divorce.
Such an unusual group should have a name to match, and theirs came from an episode of The Andy Griffith Show in which Barney gifted Thelma Lou with – you guessed it! - a pineapple skinner.
The members of the ‘Skinners are all unique individuals in their own right. Tony is a high school teacher; Tom is a registered pharmacist and an artist; Chuck is professional photographer, in addition to being a performer and a music teacher. Mike works for DHL and repairs and restores instruments, while Sam works for EWTN.
