Hello Jay,

My name is Diane Barros.

I would like to talk to you about possibly booking our Carole King Tribute show, called “ONE FINE TAPESTRY, A CAROLE KING TRIBUTE” at New Jersey Botanical Gardens for the summer of 2019. Sue mentioned to me that 2018 has already been scheduled.

My husband Gerard and I have been doing the Carole King show for 7 years, and we are very interested in scheduling a date at your venue. Not only do we perform many of Carole’s solo hits, but we also cover many of the classics she wrote for other artists such as the Drifters, Shirelles, James Taylor, etc.

This ( ONE HOUR ) show is very well received, and we are sure your patrons will thoroughly enjoy it.

“ONE FINE TAPESTRY, A CAROLE KING TRIBUTE” can be performed with our ( FULL BAND ) for large outdoor concerts or

just my husband and I “Gerard and Diane ” as a ( DUO ) .

Also, listed below are some references from NJ Libraries, Cultural Centers and Summer Concert Series where we performed the tribute in the past year.

I don’t book shows, I just write about them, so I wouldn’t be the right person to speak to.
