sMOkeyTOWN – Andrea Prestinario
Songs of Smokey Robinson
Originally conceived as a 60th birthday gift to her father, Andrea Prestinario created sMOkeyTOWN, which salutes Smokey Robinson’s historic songwriting canon with party hats, pomp, and some serious Motown circumstance. Smokey was the most played artist blasting from the stereo of Andrea’s childhood home, so go with what you know, right? Um, “I’ll Second That Emotion”! sMOkeyTOWN has played Feinstein’s / 54 Below, Mayne Stage, Laurie Beechman, and will now return to sweet home Chicago where it all began. Audiences can expect to hear funked-up and folked-down arrangements of hits by The Miracles, including–“The Tracks Of My Tears,” “Tears of a Clown”–as well as songs written for The Temptations (“Get Ready”), Mary Wells (“My Guy”), Michael Jackson (“Who’s Lovin’ You”), and so much more. Andrea Prestinario is a NYC-based singer / actress who has performed regionally throughout the country. Andrea’s tribute show recognizes Smokey Robinson as the unsung hero of Motown and his impact on The Great American Songbook.
