Chonda Pierce "Getting Back to Funny" Wednesday, September 27, 2017 at 7:00 pm Tickets: $46.50 for VIP, $24 Emmy-nominated and best-selling comedian Chonda Pierce or “the country comic” as Billboard Magazine dubbed her, has been making audiences laugh for more than two decades with her winning combination of fierce wit and southern charm. Pierce is fresh off an incredible year after debuting her movie “Chonda Pierce: Laughing In The Dark,” to rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. The limited engagement documentary-style film was so well received that it was brought back for a very special encore performance and in total was viewed by nearly 100,000 people over the course of just two nights.

A stand-up comedian, television hostess, author and now actress, Pierce has channeled her life experiences into positivity, bringing laughter to audiences around the country. As the RIAA’s best-selling female comedian, her hilarious take on life is easily relatable as she publicly opens up to her listeners about times of darkness and depression in her own life, drawing humor and good from every situation. In October 2015, Pierce took her humor to the big screen with her first film “Chonda Pierce: Laughing In The Dark,” based on her personal struggle to overcome depression. The film is a behind-the-scenes journal chronicling Pierce’s downward spiral dealing with the devastating loss of her mother, an estranged daughter and the tragedy of her husband’s battle with alcoholism and subsequent death, all over the course of three years. Yet she remarkably makes her way through the adversity, heart-wrenching loss and her own depression with the gift of humor! Pierce made the film in hopes it would serve as a vehicle to inspire others who may be hitting points of darkness and depression in their lives.

Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."

St. Paul & The Broken Bones Friday, September 29, 2017 at 8:00 pm Tickets: $35, $30, $25 Sea of Noise, the second full-length album by St. Paul and the Broken Bones, marks a quantum leap in sound and style for the high-voltage Birmingham, Alabama-based band. Produced by Paul Butler and recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium, the group’s sophomore effort features an expanded eight-piece lineup of the widely praised soulbased rock unit. Longtime members Paul Janeway (lead vocals), Jesse Phillips (bass, guitar), Browan Lollar (guitars), Andrew Lee (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), and Allen Branstetter (trumpet) are joined by Jason Mingledorff (saxophone, clarinet, flute), and Chad Fisher (trombone). The collection of new original songs is the group’s first release on RECORDS, a joint venture of SONGS Publishing, winner of ASCAP’s 2016 independent publisher of the year award, and veteran label executive Barry Weiss. Sea of Noise is a successor to the Broken Bones’ 2013 debut album Half the City, which introduced the group’s blazing mating of ‘60s soul fire – daubed with latter-day influences like Sly Stone, David Bowie, and Prince - to Janeway’s impassioned singing and writing. The new album witnesses a deepening and broadening of the unit’s musical reach and lyrical concerns. Tickets

That’s precisely what we learn as this all-star cast unite to tell the story of a young man who takes pride in being macho but really is a momma’s boy.

Set in the inner city, Aaron and Autumn join forces as police officers in a town plagued by violence. Autumn is then forced to move into Aaron’s home with her sons. Autumn has spoiled and catered to her sons every need which has earned them the title of being momma’s boys. This is where Aaron’s plight begins to turn these boys to men. In an awkward turn of events, Autumn decides to confront Aaron about his own relationship with his mother. Aaron’s mother, who has resided with him for the past 10 years, feels that no woman can take care of her son like she can. She has run away potential prospects in the past and intends to do same with Autumn.

The big question that remains is how can Aaron turn Autumns boys into men when he is a “Momma’s Boy” himself?

Chris Tomlin Christmas Friday, December 1, 2017 at 7:00 pm Tickets: $47.50, $37.50 From his rural Texas roots, cutting his chops on his father’s Country-Western record collection, to the small Baptist church where he was first compelled by congregational singing, and now in his current position as the definitive worship leader for the worldwide church, Chris Tomlin has always been motivated to provide spiritual seekers a voice to talk with God through music.

Fast-forward thirty years and the artist whose humble demeanor suggests music is as much his heart’s calling as a heady career has sold millions of albums, streamed billions of tracks, spawned 15 #1 radio singles and been awarded with multiple RIAA Gold and Platinum certifications, and a list of Grammy, Dove, Billboard Music and American Music Awards.

Further cementing the profound impact of his widely sung songs, Chris joined Garth Brooks, Justin Timberlake and Pitbull as the fourth artist in digital music history to receive the prestigious Sound Exchange Digital Radio Award for over 1 billion digital radio streams.

Affirming his lifetime calling to “write songs that help people worship God,” Chris continues to evolve in his musical leadership role for the nation with the recent inauguration of Worship Night in America events – unifying the church through an evening of worship through music and prayer. Over the last few years, live Worship Night in America events have sold out historic venues like New York City’s Madison Square Garden and Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and last year’s nationwide theatricast sold over 60,000 tickets to viewings on more than 440 screens. “The church has been leading with politics for too long,” Chris opines. “The church’s place in the world is to lead with prayer. And one of music’s roles is to help us see more clearly through the fogginess of current events.”

“Worship is much more about seeing than it is singing. Worship opens our eyes and helps us see the truth in our faith.”

Jeanne Robertson Friday January 12, 2018 at 8:00 pm Tickets: $62, $42, $32 Jeanne Robertson specializes in hilarious humor based on her life experiences. Speaking to thousands of people annually, she utilizes her positively funny style to illustrate that a sense of humor is much more than a laughing matter.

Other speakers might be as witty as Jeanne. Some might even be as tall. (Bare-footed with her hair "mashed" down, she's 6'2" in her size 11 stocking feet.) But nowhere will you find a speaker so adept at turning personal experiences into humorous presentations that do more than elicit laughter. This Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant uses her down-home Southern drawl to leave her audiences laughing ... and thinking about her message.

Jeanne's longevity as a humorous speaker has not gone unnoticed by her peers. She has been awarded every top honor in her profession. They like her back home too. The North Carolina Press Association named Jeanne its 2001 North Carolinian of the Year.

You may have seen this successful speaker interviewed by CBS correspondent Morley Safer on "60 Minutes" ... or seen one of her presentations on public television ... or read one of her books about humor. But only if you've heard Jeanne in person at one of the thousands of speeches she has presented over the past 40 years can you really appreciate why she stands at the top of her profession.

Jeanne Robertson is funny. Oh my, yes. She also knows that her job is far more than "being funny." Her message is that a sense of humor is an attitude, an approach toward working with people. She believes that this humor attitude can be developed and improved, and she outlines how to do so while she captivates her audiences with funny, original stories.

3 Faces of the King Saturday April 21, 2018 at 7:30 pm Tickets: $67, $52, $42, $37, $27 3 Faces of the King follows the most significant entertainer of all time through his most important musical eras.

The show opens in the early years of Elvis doing Rockabilly with the moves that scared the conservative nation. He jumped, wiggled and danced all over the stage…The nation could not believe what they saw. When he was on Ed Sullivan, they would only show him from the waist up as a conservative nation thought the moves to be risqué. The young people did not agree and Elvis Presley started a whole new genre of music

Elvis wanted to make movies. He talked the colonel, his manager into getting him movies. Except for a very few films, Elvis was not happy with the movies he was given..He wanted some serious films, but all the studio wanted to do is sell tickets, and having Elvis singing would do just that. However, after finishing one of his better films, King Creole, he was drafted into the United States Army. Elvis missed the excitement of live shows and was worried as to how people would still like his singing career.

The second phase of the show has Elvis, now a little older, taking a chance to do a television special originally called the Singer Special(singer sewing machines sponsored) and became known as the comeback special…It proved that Elvis had not lost it and the public still loved him. Elvis was back.

Following this, we move into the Vegas Years..It was the end of the 60’s and Elvis proved that he still had it in him..We create the excitement of the years in Las Vegas at the International Hotel.

The show is proud to welcome the AMBASSADOR BAND and the TCB HORNS along with the SWEET INSPIRATIONS and members of the STAMPS QUARTET.
