The lyrics written by Johnny Mercer graced the melodies of well-known composers such as Hoagy Carmichael, Harold Arlen, James Van Heusen and Henry Mancini. “Skylark,” “Moon River,” “Come Rain Or Come Shine,” “This Time The Dream’s On Me,” “Jeepers Creepers,” and “Something’s Gotta Give” are just a few of the iconic songs highlighted in this tribute. Stories from his birthplace of Savannah, Georgia to a career spanning 45 years make for a lively evening in celebration of this “True American Lyricist” and “Folk Poet.” Respected and revered by fellow songwriters from Irving Berlin to Paul McCartney, Mercer is credited with nearly 1,500 songs, including an unprecedented number—more than 100—of “Top 10” hits.
