SEASON SCHEDULE

What’s Going On: The Marvin Gaye Experience
7pm Friday September 13 

As one of the pioneers of Motown, singer-songwriter and producer Marvin Gaye helped shape the sound of R&B music and is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. Soul man Brian Owens is often referred to as the “second coming of Marvin Gaye.”  Owens, who has performed at the White House for First Lady Michelle Obama, dazzles audiences with performances that are full of soul and love well beyond his peers of today. His refined style combining classic soul with a slight modern touch is why audiences everywhere are calling him the new voice of American soul.

What’s Going On: The Marvin Gaye Experience is Brian’s tribute to the legendary artist and includes music selections that span Gaye’s music-making career. Early solo hits like “Can I Get a Witness” and “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” share space with “You’re All I Need to Get By” and other classic duets. And any Marvin Gaye song list would be incomplete without perennial (and challenging) crowd-pleasers like “Let’s Get It On” or “Got To Give It Up.”

At its heart, Brian’s Marvin Gaye Experience is about “preservation — upholding the tradition of true soul music that is so desperately needed in our culture today.” The show prominently features a suite of pieces from Gaye’s “What’s Going On” album, counted as “one of the most socially important artistic works in the history of American music.” In light of recent events in and around Ferguson Missouri where he resides, Brian says the show also speaks to a heightened sense of urgency and the prophetic beauty of Gaye’s 1971 work.

Tickets: Individuals $25, Seniors (65+) and Military $22. Students $10, PrivilegesPlus members $20. Group discount rates of $20 each for groups of 10 or more when purchased in advance are available by contacting the box office.  Season Tickets:  Purchase 5 or more events at the same time through our box office to receive a 20% discount off the top ticket price.

The Drifters
7pm Friday February 7
The Drifters – Rock & Roll Hall of Famers

Up on the Roof.  Under the Boardwalk.  This Magic Moment. There Goes My Baby.  Dance with Me.  Spanish Harlem.  Stand by Me.  The list of hits goes on and on. THE DRIFTERS…one of Rock & Roll’s founding vocal groups is once again touring the U.S. under the auspices of their original management team.

From their inception in the early 1950’s and up until recently, THE DRIFTERS has a symbiotic relationship with Rock & Roll legend George Treadwell, who has discovered and managed such famous artists as Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughn and Nina Simone.  The Treadwell Family was there when the original DRIFTERS formed and was responsible for guiding their career through 20 years of uninterrupted hits that has made them the second most successful recording artist of all time, according to Billboard Magazine.

The Drifters were originally formed in the 1950’s (60 years ago).  From the start, the term “Drifters” was used to denote performers who “drifted” in and out of the group.  All of the original members are long deceased and, in fact, the last original member departed the group over 40 years ago.  Robert Wiggins, our longest current member, has been with the group 30 years and worked with 3 original members.  While the Drifters were among the first group of artists to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, several of their members who left the group and went on to have solo careers (like Ben E. King and Clyde McPhatter) were also inducted for their individual efforts.

Tickets: Individuals $25, Seniors (65+) and Military $22. Students $10, PrivilegesPlus members $20. Group discount rates of $20 each for groups of 10 or more when purchased in advance are available by contacting the box office.  Season Tickets:  Purchase 5 or more events at the same time through our box office to receive a 20% discount off the top ticket price.

Shana Tucker
7pm Friday April 17

With a deep respect for lyrical storytelling, cellist/singer-songwriter SHANA TUCKER delivers a unique voice through her self-described genre of ChamberSoul™.  Shana’s melodies weave strong hints of jazz, classical, soulful folk, acoustic pop and a touch of R&B into a distinctive rhythmic tapestry.

Touted by JazzTimes Magazine as a jazz talent “…whose imprint and vitality has already been quite visible…” Shana’s style and sound as been described as a blend of Dianne Reeves, Joni Mitchell, and Tracy Chapman, with an efficient complexity that is reminiscent of Bill Withers. ChamberSoul™ best describes what the listener should expect when experiencing Shana’s music. “I’m intrinsically drawn to “real” instruments, with resonance, tone and depth that can sound without amplification. Whenever and however possible, I always try to set a tone of acoustic intimacy with my colleagues on stage, and also with the audience, so that the music, performers and audience feel close and tangible, no matter the size the venue.”

Shana has opened for internationally-acclaimed artists including Norah Jones, Lisa Fischer, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Hamiet Bluett, Javon Jackson, the Blind Boys of Alabama, and Indigo Girls.

Tickets $15 adults and $10 students. .  This performance is partially underwritten by a grant from the Robeson County Arts Council.   Season Tickets:  Purchase 5 or more events at the same time through our box office to receive a 20% discount off the top ticket price.
