Old Dominion - The Happy Endings World Tour
February 9, 2018
With special guests The Washboard Union and Cold Creek County Old Dominion - February 9, 2018
» More about this show

Old Dominion lend old-fashioned country charm, lyrical wit and rock n' roll grit into radio-friendly hook-heavy pop nuggets.

Old Dominion have emerged as one of the hottest breaking bands in country music, fusing clever lyrics and an infectious sound. The band released their first full-length album Meat and Candy, which Entertainment Weekly called a "deceptively smart, occasionally cheeky, stellar debut." Old Dominion released their PLATINUM two-week #1 "Break Up With Him" and RIAA certified GOLD hit "Snapback" prior to their third single "Song For Another Time" which hit the Top 10.

Their recently released second album Happy Endings finds the band excavating lyrically driven, melodic gems with true emotional depth and nostalgia-laden, happy-sad appeal. The band loves "feel good songs." The album's first single "No Such Thing As A Broken Heart" reached #1 on Billboards Country Airplay and Mediabase charts. "Written In The Sand" is the second single climbing up the charts.

The ACM and ACCA Breakthrough Duo/Group of the Year were also nominated for two CMA Awards: Best New Artist and Vocal Group of the Year and Favorite Duo or Group – Country for the 2016 American Music Awards. Old Dominion consists of lead singer Matthew Ramsey, lead guitarist Brad Tursi, multi-instrumentalist Trevor Rosen, bassist Geoff Sprung and drummer Whit Stellers.

Dwight Yoakam

With Special Guest, Brandy Clark Dwight Yoakam - March 3, 2018
» More about this show

Guitars, Cadillacs and Accolades
One of America's most prolific songwriters and dynamic performers, Dwight Yoakam, brings his distinctive perspective on love, loss and surviving both to Sandman Centre. Yoakam's ability to deliver tales of unrequited love, fresh heartbreak and other "honky-tonk" foibles with unapologetic emotion and hips swaying is why audiences can't just listen - they move to his music. Whether performing traditional country, cow punk, honky tonk, or bluegrass - the sound is quintessential Dwight Yoakam. Vanity Fair declared that "Yoakam strides the divide between rock's lust and country's lament." That stride comes with a sizeable portion of swagger, and the audience comes away all the better for it.

Born in Kentucky and raised in Ohio, Yoakam moved to Nashville to try his hand at a music career. Not fitting in with the "Urban Cowboy" phase that was sweeping music row at the time, Yoakam moved west to California to further construct his interpretation of country music. That move proved fortuitous as he pioneered the "hillbilly" music that brought a new rock and punk rock audience to the country music genre. His self-financed EP, Guitars, Cadillacs, Etc., Etc,. (1986), was a breakout hit, and the rest, as they say, is history.

Dwight Yoakam is a multiple GRAMMY (2), Country Music Association (1), and Academy of Country Music (2) award winner, with 9 platinum or multi-platinum selling albums, 12 gold selling albums and winner of 2013's Artist of the Year from the Americana Music Association. Along with his critically acclaimed music, Yoakam is a formidable film and television actor whose films include Sling Blade and The Newton Boys.

In 2016, he performed in a recurring role in David E. Kelly's Amazon series, Goliath starring alongside Billy Bob Thornton. Whether collaborating in music (Buck Owens, Beck, Jack White), or in film (Jodie Foster, Daniel Craig, Matthew McConaughey), Dwight Yoakam stands toe-to-toe with some of the world's top thespians and musicians, seamlessly delivering the goods--and all with his signature swagger.

Dirty Dancing

The Classic Story on Stage Dirty Dancing - May 5, 2018
» More about this show

The production's book is written by Eleanor Bergstein, author of the original script of the film, and the North American tour is choreographed by Michele Lynch based on the original choreography by Kate Champion. The creative team also includes Mikiko Suzuki (Scenic Design), Ken Billington (Lighting Design), Jennifer Irwin (Costume Design), Leon Rothenberg (Sound Design), Bernie Ardia (Hair Design), Conrad Helfrich (Music Supervisor and Orchestrations) and Alan J. Plado (Music Director). Stewart/Whitley is the casting director for this tour.

"As I learned how many people watched the movie over and over and over," said Eleanor Bergstein, screenwriter of the film Dirty Dancing and book writer for the production, "I began to think that what they really wanted was to share more physically in the event, to step through the screen and be there while the story was happening. And if that was true, then its natural form was theatre – live audiences watching live bodies dancing and singing here and now in the present – on the log, on the bridge, on the dance floor and in the staff quarters at Kellerman's. Writing it for the stage, I was also able to add more scenes with Baby and Johnny, more about the family, more about the period in which it was set, more songs I couldn't afford last time, and, best of all – more dancing. We have added 20 new original scenes and 36 numbers of live music played by an eight piece band onstage, which invite the audience to come into Kellerman's and experience the story in a whole new way as a live event as it happens."

Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage is an unprecedented live experience, exploding with heart-pounding music, passionate romance and sensational dancing. Seen by millions across the globe, this timeless love story features the hit songs "Hungry Eyes," "Hey Baby," "Do You Love Me?" and the heart-stopping "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life." London's Sunday Express says "This crowd-pleasing stage adaptation hits the jackpot!"

It's the summer of 1963, and 17-year-old Frances 'Baby' Houseman is on vacation in New York's Catskill Mountains with her older sister and parents. Mesmerized by the racy dance moves and pounding rhythms she discovers in the resort's staff quarters, Baby can't wait to be part of the scene, especially when she catches sight of Johnny Castle, the resort's sexy dance instructor. Passions ignite and Baby's life changes forever when she is thrown in to the deep end as Johnny's leading lady, both on-stage and off.
