Giacomo Gates does more than sing “a bunch of songs.” He is truly an entertainer, for all ages and styles, as audiences enjoy the music, the interaction on the bandstand between him and his musicians, the spontaneity, the humor, the stories about the music and composers, along with their relation to everyday life. People are smiling, having a good time, while thoroughly enjoying the music. What usually lacks in most of today’s performances is obviously present…fun!
Palace Theater100 East Main Street Waterbury, CT 06702The Palace Theater is located in the center of the state of Connecticut, 100 East Main Street, Waterbury – 35 miles from each state border and conveniently located off I-84 and Route 8. The Palace Theater is a culture and tourist attraction as a historic venue recently renovated as part of a $200 million economic redevelopment project for the City of Waterbury and the State of Connecticut. Through the generosity of the State of Connecticut and $35 million dollars, the doors of the Palace Theater opened once again to the public on November 12, 2004. All of the grandeur, originally designed by period architect Thomas Lamb, is what is described as a Renaissance Revival style, featuring an eclectic mix of Greek, Roman, Arabic and Federal motifs. Boasting grand lobby spaces and ornate dome ceilings, the Palace Theater provides a palatial setting fit for a king – but intended for the people of Waterbury.
