You can no longer see The Doors perform, but you can still experience its "dark, spooky, mystical and hypnotic music" at the Arcadia Theater, 1418 Graham Ave., Windber, at 8 p.m. Saturday.
Frank Cunsolo, the executive director of the theater, said Peace Frog, a tribute band to Jim Morrison and The Doors will take center stage that night.
"When you witness Peace Frog," he said, "you are going to think you are at a Doors concert. It is a must see for all Doors fans or anyone who wants to experience an amazing experience of a Doors concert."
The band, together for 14 years, is based in Venice, Ca. The group has played to large and small venues across the land. Lead singer Tony Fernandez lives out every move of Jim Morrison on stage and delivers a powerful recreation of true likeness in presence, vocals, mannerisms and spirit, added Cunsolo.
"Peace Frog is the drama and rock theater that made The Doors famous," he said. They can transform any room into an actual Doors concert experience, with intoxicating renditions of such famous Doors songs as 'Hello, I Love You,' 'Light My Fire,' 'L.A. Women,' 'The End.' These are just part of what they are going to be performing next Saturday."
Cunsolo said the band pays attention to detail not only by Tony Fernandez, as Jim Morrison, but by the musicians that play the parts of Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore.
"These can all be described as a study in The Doors musicianship," he said.
Densmore and Krieger have sat in with the band and both gave them glowing reviews. Manzarek was the keyboard player for The Doors and Krieger the guitarist.
"This is the first time they have played at the Arcadia," said Cunsolo. "We are looking for a full house and tickets are selling brisk."
For tickets or information, you can call the box office 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, at 814-467-9070.
