Who can forget the incomparable music of the Carpenters?

The popular brother/sister duo of the 70’s and early 80’s gave us some of the most unforgettable ballads and melodic pop songs of all time. Top Of The World is The World’s Premiere Tribute to The Carpenters.

Lead singer Debbie Taylor's Karen Carpenter vocal resemblance is absolutely astonishing. She is backed by a seven-piece band consisting of top-notch, professional industry musicians who have had amazing careers in their own right.

The band members are all multi-instrumentalists and at times use 3 keyboards to recreate Richard Carpenter's incredibly complex arrangements. The attention to detail paired with saxophone, trumpet, flute and many more instruments complete every song to perfection.

Top of the World does not use tracks or pick up musicians like other shows. This 8 piece band travels and performs all shows together.This Carpenters Tribute Band brings the most authentic versions of the Carpenters music to the stage. You will be singing along as they perform hits like; “Close To You”, “We’ve Only Just Begun”, “Rainy Days And Mondays”, “Please Mr. Postman” and “Yesterday Once More”, to name a few.

Debbie captures the warm tones and contralto range that made Karen’s voice so unique. Sit back and enjoy as Debbie and her band take you on a nostalgic journey through the Carpenters greatest hits while sharing some of the backstories behind the music.

Top Of The World returns to The Newton Theatre on Friday, February, 14th, 2020, at 8 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at The Newton Theatre box office at 219 Spring Street in Newton, NJ; online at; or by calling 973-940-NEWT.
