Jungr and McDaniel: 1968 - Let The Sun Shine In
The ferociously talented, award-winning duo of Barb Jungr and John McDaniel will bring a new show, "1968 - Let The Sun Shine In," to Joe’s Pub in New York City for four performances, July 21st, 22nd, 28th and 29th at 7pm. With their potent musical synergy, Jungr and McDaniel reinvent some of the most iconic anthems of the pivotal year of 1968, when the Viet Nam War and its protestors clashed and raged, and the U.S. saw the assassinations of both Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King. The repertoire of "1968 - Let The Sun Shine In" reflects the tenor of the times with titles including "Born to be Wild," "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?," "Revolution" and "Everlasting Love." Tickets are on sale now at:
This event follows the release in 2016 of their highly acclaimed album "Come Together - Barb Jungr and John McDaniel Perform The Beatles" as well as their acclaimed show, "Float Like A Butterfly - The Songs of STING." Jungr and McDaniel will release a studio recording of that show this summer.
