In the 70s, when many people were enjoying disco beats and guitar riffs, the Carpenters created memorable love songs that included more than a dozen number one hits on the Billboard charts.
“Everyone knows the Carpenters’ music,” said lead vocalist Lisa Rock. “I hope everyone feels like singing along.”
Rock describes Karen Carpenter’s voice as pure, and lower than most female vocalists. Her own four-octave range allows her to sing hits like “We’ve Only Just Begun” and “Rainy Days and Mondays” in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and even more recognizable for the audience. She has performed live for more than 75,000 fans in more than 100 shows in 20 different states. Creative 360 is pleased to bring this group to Midland.
