Singer Lisa Rock and her six-piece band are bringing the music of The Carpenters back to the stage with their spot-on renditions of Carpenters classics. Rock, a singer as well as a playwright, has been performing to sold-out crowds for years. She’s written more than 15 original concerts and cabarets that have been seen across the country. Her amazing four octave range allows her to sing the hits like We’ve Only Just Begun and Rainy Days and Mondays in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and more recognizable for the audience. Rock goes beyond the music in her concert. She draws the crowd in with anecdotes about Karen and Richard Carpenter, their lives and how some of the songs originated. Rock engages the audience to the point where they can’t help but sing along with her. Tickets: $33, available at the Ames Center Box Office, 800-982-2787 or ticketmaster.com.
