Local News

PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Rose Winebrenner is set to deliver a part-cabaret and part-piano bar show on May 21 and 22.

The show, titled “Rose’s Turn: Petals & Pedals Piano Bar Party!” will be held at the Broadway Lounge in downtown Peoria.

In a press release from the Broadway Lounge: “Fitting in nicely with the Broadway theme… The song ‘Rose’s Turn’ is the 11 o’clock number from the famous musical GYPSY. Petals – her name is Rose! Pedals – piano pedals of course!”

Winebrenner is a former Cirque du Soleil and Le Cirque star. Before that, she was a full-time performer at Chicago’s piano bars.

Now, Winebrenner is working on personal music releases. She calls her new series “medicine songs.”

“If I’m feeling down, I can sing a medicine song or listen to a medicine song or play a medicine song,” Winebrenner said. “Which is specifically formatted and formulated by me to be positive. And to kind of get me out of whatever funky feeling I might be having.”

Winebrenner will be performing her new song “One Foot in Front of the Other” live to the public for the first time this weekend. She also performed the song exclusively for Good Day Central Illinois Tuesday morning.

“‘One foot in front of the other’ is a song I wrote about what it takes to get through life when you’re having a hard time. And when you’re focusing on your end goal instead of focusing on the journey,” Winebrenner said.

Tickets for the show at the Broadway Lounge can be found here.
