Ever since Rock & Roll and Blues Hall of Famer Elvin Bishop first hit the scene with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band back in 1965, he’s blazed his own musical trail. Whether he was playing raw, eye-popping blues, or penning the evergreen radio hit Fooled Around And Fell In Love, or touring the world for decades delivering his original, good-time countrified blues, Bishop has always inspired his fans with his rowdy guitar playing and witty, slice-of-life songs. Rolling Stone calls Bishop “a legendary guitarist” whose playing is “impeccable and spirited…a distinguished American player.”

Charlie Musselwhite is living proof that great music only gets better with age. This man cut his (musical) teeth alongside Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf and everyone on the south side of Chicago in the early 1960’s — thank your lucky stars he is still with us telling the truth with a voice and harp tone like no other.

Musselwhite may be the only musician to get a huge ovation just for opening his briefcase. Fans know that’s where he keeps his harmonicas and they’re about to hear one of the true masters work his magic on the humble instrument. Musselwhite is, and always will be, a bluesman of the highest order.

Two Hall of Fame bluesmen on one stage — and that’s just the start of what’s in store when Elvin Bishop and Charlie Musselwhite join forces. Between them, there are more than 100 years of the blues, and this promises to be a front-porch session that shimmers with history and that rarest musical quality: authenticity. Bishop, with his Gibson guitar, and Musselwhite, with his wailing harmonica, show us the roots of Chicago blues in this meeting of musical minds.

Prather has made numerous appearances on Fox News, CNN, A&E, The Blaze, and MSN. He is the host of Ride TV’s “It’s My Backyard” and recently finished his wildly successful “Kings of Cowtown Comedy Tour.” He has sold out theaters all over America and is one of the country’s fastest rising and talked about comedians and entertainers.

Bishop and Musselwhite together for one night — along with guitarist extraordinaire . . . Bob Welsh!

Legendary music icons, Three Dog Night, celebrating nearly five decades, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top ten hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.

Three Dog Night’s hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio, where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials, or in major motion pictures. Songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala,” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize Three Dog Night’s continuing popularity.

From 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top ten hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.

Three Dog Night recorded the music of the best (and mostly undiscovered) new songwriters of that time including Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elton John, Laura Nyro, Paul Williams, and Hoyt Axton among many others. The group’s eclectic taste, combined with its ability to recognize and record hits in a unique, distinctive and appealing style, resulted in Three Dog Night dominating the charts for years.

Now, with nearly 50 years on the road, Three Dog Night continues to grow its fan base by keeping up a full schedule of concerts at theatres, performing arts centers, fairs, festivals, corporate events, and casinos. Since 1986, the band has performed over 2,200 shows — including two Super Bowls.

“We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like immigrant. Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way.” So says Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos, when describing the songs on the band’s new album, Gates of Gold.

. . . an invitation to join [Los Lobos] as they open fresh and exciting new Gates of Gold, their first full length studio album since 2010. . . . Expect to hear hits from the past and new material during this acoustic and full-electric concert!

The stories on Gates of Gold are snapshots of experiences that Perez and his band mates have had, based on where they are emotionally and how they respond to evolving life circumstances. “e live out loud most of the time and share our life this way, but then there are more intrinsic things that happen, and our songs are part of the way we react to them. We sit down and basically tell people what has happened. We certainly didn’t start this project with aspirations to create the musical equivalent to great American literary works.”

After celebrating their 40th anniversary with the cleverly-titled 2013 live album Disconnected In New York City, the hard working, constantly touring band — David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, and Steve Berlin — leaps head first into their fifth decade with an invitation to join them as they open fresh and exciting new Gates of Gold, their first full length studio album since 2010’s Tin Can Trust (a Grammy nominee for Best Americana Album) and second with Savoy/429 Records. Expect to hear hits from the past and new material during this acoustic and full-electric concert!

From the minds of improv and comedy legend Colin Mochrie, and Master Hypnotist Asad Mecci, comes a brand new, mind-blowing, jaw-dropping, side-splitting show: Hypnosis and improvisation — two art forms that have captured minds and imaginations for decades worldwide — are brought together by two masters of their crafts, uniting to create a totally unique theatrical experience, HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis.

Twenty random volunteers from the audience will be hypnotized, (the process of which is a show in its own right), their inhibitions evaporated and their minds no longer their own, the four or five best are left on stage when one of the world’s leading improvisers enters! Colin Mochrie (co-creator), star of Whose Line is it, Anyway?, will initiate and manipulate those under hypnosis himself and turn the show into an improv extravaganza full of music, horse races, and lots of laughter.

In the hands of two masters, and solely crafted from the volunteers’ uninhibited subconscious, this will be an entirely original and completely unforgettable show, each and every night.

Hypnosis and improvisation — two art forms that have captured minds and imaginations for decades worldwide — are brought together by two masters of their crafts, uniting to create a totally unique theatrical experience, HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis.
