A Pat Boone Christmas
Pat Boone warms up the season with your favorite holiday classics. With 54 hit singles Pat Boone often rivaled Elvis Presley for success on the charts. In 1955 his version of the Fats Domino hit "Ain't That A Shame" reached the top of the charts, while his versions of Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" and "Long Tall Sally" outsold the originals.
Boone is recognized by Billboard Magazine as the #10 rock recording artist in history, placing higher on that impressive chart than either Madonna or Billy Joel. In 2003, the Gospel Music Association inducted Pat into the GMA Hall of Fame. A best-selling author, successful entrepreneur, chart-topping recording star, family man and legendary humanitarian, Pat's contribution to the American culture and country's consciousness has reached legendary status.
Grammy nominated Rhythm and Blues Legend Percy Sledge is best known for his signature love anthem “When A Man Loves A Woman". Sledge’s music spans the ages. He's had a number of chart hits including "Take Time To Know Her," "Warm And Tender Love," "Out Of Left Field, "It Tears Me Up," and "I'll Be Your Everything".
Nine years ago, Sledge made a comeback album called “t was Blue Night”. The album received worldwide critical acclaim, solid sales, a Grammy nomination and won The Blues Foundation's WC Handy Award for best Soul/Blues Album of the Year.
Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs with Clarence Carter f
Maurice Williams is one of the most extraordinarily durable figures in the history of classic rhythm-and-blues and rock 'n roll. "Stay," became a number one mega-hit upon its release on the R & B charts. The group formed in the 1950’s in the Carolina’s. Clarence Carter’s soulful guitar work intertwined with his sexy lyrics, reminds us that you don't have to be down to sing the blues. Carter’s hit singles “Strokin and Slip Away” both show an artist steeped in the most traditional aspects of Southern music and one of the most modern of all deep bluesmen. Carter's musical approach harkened directly back to acoustic country blues. In Carter's case, love, particularly cheating love, became the great spiritual metaphor.
*$15 seats for each show may be limited visibility (obstructed view), depending on the set up of the stage for each individual show and this is not determined until the stage is set day of show. These seats are in sections 1, 5 , 6 & 14.
