February Show Lineup

The Hot Sardines
Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015
Named one of the best jazz bands in New York by Forbes magazine, The Hot Sardines are born of a unique recipe: take hot jazz and sultry standards from the ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s, sprinkle in the rich Dixieland sounds of New Orleans, add a dash of wartime Paris flavor and stir in vibrant musical surprises that hold the audience captive. This unforgettably wild show has a style completely its own and a sound you will always remember. Tickets range from $10-25. 

Elvis Lives
Friday, Feb. 6, 2015
This concert extravaganza will take you on a musical journey across the life of Elvis Presley; the King of rock ‘n’ roll. Elvis Lives features four talented artists who each portray Elvis in one of four eras: the ‘50s, the ‘60s, during his movie career and his final concert years. The cast is composed of Dean Z portraying the early years and the comeback special, Jay Dupuis portraying the movie years, and Bill Cherry portraying the concert years. A live band, backup singers and dancers join them onstage, Carol Maccri as Ann Margret and iconic imagery made available from the Graceland archives. This blast from the past is a must-see for all Elvis lovers and fanatics. Tickets range from $32-62.

Clarice Assad Trio
Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015
Clarice Assad – classical and jazz composer, arranger, pianist and vocalist – will be giving a special performance at Walton Arts Center.
