Clint Black                                                                                        Wed, October 14 • 7:00pm
Prolific singer-songwriter Clint Black has long been heralded as one of Country music’s brightest stars. Black’s continued success can be attributed to his deep sense of country music history and his humble gratitude in being a part of it. The 1989 debut of his critically acclaimed fan favorite, the Triple Platinum Killin’ Time, marked a shift in the industry, with a return to the more traditional sounds of the genre. CMT lists this album as one of the 100 Greatest Albums in Country Music. For Black, Killin’ Time was only the beginning. Put Yourself in My Shoes followed in 1990, and quickly went Triple Platinum. Since then, Black has had nearly two dozen #1 hit singles, and almost as many Top 5 and Top 10 hits – all of them his original compositions, which is itself a notable rarity in popular music.
Tickets are $75.00 for premium orchestra pit seating, $57.50, $47.50, $39.50, $25.00 or $15.00, depending on location.

THE Hot Sardines                                                                             Tues, January 26 • 8:00pm
It's a great American success story worthy of the cinema: a born-and-bred NYC actor meets a Parisian-born writer at an open jazz jam over a noodle shop in Manhattan, and before you could say "Bourbon Street Parade," The Hot Sardines were bringing their contagious brand of joy to audiences all over the world. Bandleader Evan "Bibs" Palazzo and lead singer "Miz Elizabeth" Bougerol combine with the Sardine ensemble of powerhouse musicians - and their very own tap dancer - to play "hot jazz" as it was in the era when live music was king: with a little glamour, a little grit, and a lot of passion. Even while giving voice to the history-defining jazz of the 1920s, '30s, and '40s, The Hot Sardines' vibrant performances bridge generations and captivate 21st-century audiences. Vanity Fair applauds their "unique repertoire, and a sound and style that are distinctly their own."
Tickets are $47.50 for premium orchestra pit seating, $34.50, $27.50, $20.00 or $10.00, depending on location.
