The Boxers – A Tribute to Simon & Garfunkel
Wednesday, May 22. Noon Lunch Box Show and 7 PM Evening Performance
The incredible Todd and Greg Pitts of The Boxers bring back that timeless music and harmony in a fantastic tribute performance to Simon & Garfunkel, the American folk-rock duo.
The duo of Simon and Garfunkel consisted of singer-songwriter Paul Simon and singer Art Garfunkel. They created some of the bestselling music of the 1960s and became counterculture icons of the decade’s social revolution. Their biggest hits—including “The Sound of Silence,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “The Boxer,” and “Bridge over Troubled Water”—reached number one on singles charts worldwide. The Boxers are honored to take the stage to share this classic and memorable music, bringing the audience back to a time when music touched our hearts and soothed our souls.
