Holiday and Winter Concerts at the Tower
This Winter the nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation presents an array of entertainment opportunities. Executive Director, Ray Solley, says, “The lineup is full. It is varied. We want people to come to the Tower several times, and we want them to have a wonderful experience every time they’re here!”
Here is a taste of what’s on tap under the Tower Theatre’s marquee:
Monday, November 26th The Travelin’ McCoury’s will musically set fire to the Tower stage with their arsenal of burning bluegrass! Plus, opening the evening is The Jacob Jolliff Band. Jacob is a Northwest native widely recognized as the mandolin player for Yonder Mountain String Band. Then, contemporary jazz pianist, David Benoit, along with vocalist Sara Gazarek bring on the holiday spirit with their Christmas tribute to Charlie Brown. On December 11th enjoy an evening with The Devon Allman Project and special guest Duane Betts. The musical brothers come together with a six piece band for an evening of southern-based blues, rock and soul! Duane will start the show, then Devon will play, and finally they’ll all share the stage for a special encore of Allman Brothers favorites. Next, on January 10th come experience the Portland Cello Project who’ve built a reputation of mixing genres, blurring musical lines, and challenging perceptions wherever they go. They’ll open the evening with a set of fan favorites followed by a performance of Radiohead’s “OK Computer” from start to finish. Don’t think you’re excused, because Sister returns for Late Nite Catechism 2 January 18th and 19th. Come laugh your sins off as she uses Chutes and Ladders to explain heaven and hell, and decrees new sins for the new millennium. That’s not all! For the full event calendar visit www.towertheatre.org.
