Upon getting into the efficiency venue, the about 14 glitter balls hanging from the ceiling set the tone for “Disco Fever,” the most recent cabaret produced by Mark G. Meadows at Signature Theatre till Aug. 13.
The present opened sturdy with the five-piece band and two vocalists performing h The Trammps’ “Disco Inferno.” Hits from different disco-era artists had the viewers clapping their fingers, transferring their heads to the beat, and even getting as much as dance.
Earth, Wind and Hearth, Sylvester, the Bee Gees, Donna Summer time, and Barry White have been just some of the artists whom vocalists Kaiyla Gross and Tobias A. Younger tapped to get the fever going.
The fired-up band consisted of piano, high-energy keyboardist and vocalist Natalie Brook, Max Murray on bass, Oliver Dyer on guitar, Jheremy Thompson on drums and Trey Sorrells on saxophone and digital wind devices (EWI). Sorrells’ prolonged solos acquired main appreciation from the viewers.
The mix of the musicians and singers was out of sight. Younger has a multi-octave vary that took him to heights from “Sizzling Stuff” to “You Make Me Really feel (Mighty Actual).” Gross was in command when she sang Diana Ross’ tune “The Boss.” When one singer soloed, the opposite did backup. Gross and Younger demonstrated they’re a flexible duo with stamina.
