For more than five decades, Chuck Mangione’s love affair with music has been characterized by his boundless energy, unabashed enthusiasm, and the pure joy that radiates from the stage when he performs. Mangione is an American flugelhorn player and composer who achieved international success in 1978 with his jazz-pop single, “Feels So Good.” He has released more than 30 albums in his storied career, which has spanned the better part of a half-century.
Born in Ontario, Canada, Short began his career on Canada’s “SCTV Comedy Network,” where his work garnered an Emmy Award. Short’s proven ability as a comedic chameleon and his host of hilarious impressions brought him to the attention of “Saturday Night Live.” After only one season, Short was instantly recognized for his standout performances and on-the-mark impressions of such characters as Ed Grimly, Jackie Rogers Jr., legendary songwriter Irving Cohen and lawyer Nathan Thurm. With the tremendous exposure he gained on “Saturday Night Live,” he was on the Hollywood fast track and quickly crossed over into feature film work.
