About Marty Stuart

With legends like George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard all passed on, country music purists often echo the question Jones himself asked: “Who’s going to fill their shoes?” The answer, in part, is Marty Stuart.

While he’s too gracious to admit it himself, the Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and musician is living, breathing country-music history. He’s played alongside the masters, from Cash to Lester Flatt, who discovered him; been a worldwide ambassador for Nashville, Bakersfield and points in between; and safeguarded country’s most valuable traditions and physical artifacts. Including its literal shoes: Stuart counts the brogan of Carter Family patriarch A.P. Carter and an assortment of Cash’s black boots among his vast collection of memorabilia.

But most importantly, Stuart continues to record and release keenly relevant music, records that honor country’s rich legacy while advancing it into the future. Way Out West, his 18th studio album, hits both of those marks. Produced by Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), the album is a cinematic tour-de-force, an exhilarating musical journey through the California desert that solidifies Stuart as a truly visionary artist.

Opening with a Native American prayer, a nod to Stuart’s affinity for the indigenous people, particularly the Lakota, Way Out West transports the listener to the lonely but magical American West. It is, in its own way, musical peyote.

“If you go and sit by yourself in the middle of the Mojave Desert at sundown and you’re still the same person the next morning when the sun comes up, I’d be greatly surprised,” says Stuart. “It is that spirit world of the West that enchants me.”

Specifically the promised land of California. Growing up in Philadelphia, Mississippi, Stuart was taken by the mystique of the Golden State: the culture, the movies and especially the music. “Everything that came out of California captivated my kid mind in Mississippi,” he says. “It seemed like a fantasy land. Way Out West is a love letter to that.”


About Two on Tap

Two on Tap brings audiences back in time to an era when couples like Fred & Ginger and Mickey & Judy filled the silver screen with undeniable chemistry, effortless harmony, and precision tap dancing. Gorgeous vocals, exciting choreography, and unique musical arrangements all take center stage in three different two-act shows which have entertained tens of thousands worldwide!


About Three Redneck Tenors

The Three Redneck Tenors are a new breed in the “tenor genre” – their musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists is like Duck Dynasty goes to Carnegie Hall - down home laughs with big city music!  It has been said that if Larry the Cable Guy, Il Divo, and Mrs. Doubtfire had a baby, that child would be The 3 Redneck Tenors.  Written by opera-veteran Matthew Lord with music arranged by award-winning composer Craig Bohmler, and starring Mr. Lord, Blake Davidson, and Jonathan Fruge, The 3 Redneck Tenors were top finalists on "America's Got Talent" and have been thrilling audiences since 2006.

These boys have seen it all, sing it all, and make us laugh 'till we double over, reminding us that in life, it is not just the destination, it's the journey. Get ready for one side splitting ride as we go on an excursion only the 3 Redneck Tenors could have had… delighting audiences with their vocal prowess and a smorgasbord of songs and music ranging from Gospel, to Country, to Broadway, Pop, and Classical.


About Side Street Strutters

In 1983 a group of talented musicians attending Arizona State University formed a musical ensemble whose artistic focus centered around the musical traditions of early New Orleans jazz.  Now, over three decades later, the Side Street Strutters continue to expand their musical palette to encompass nearly a century of classic American jazz.

The Strutters have presented formal concerts, symphony pops performances and student outreach programs in all fifty states, seven European countries, Canada and Mexico.  Their superb musicianship and award winning orchestrations have earned them national and international acclaim: NEA awarded fellowships and grants; State Arts Council Roster Artists; First Place Honors, Breda International Jazz Competition, Holland National radio and television appearances; International Association of Jazz Educators Outstanding Musicianship Award; appearances at dozens of European and U.S. jazz festivals, a guest presidential performance, and 12 CD recordings. In addition, the group has been entertaining guests at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA. for 22 years.

In 2000, the ensemble took on the challenge of creating a symphony pops program, and has since shared the stage with major orchestras including Houston, Rochester, Phoenix, Jacksonville, Pasendena and San Antonio.  In celebration of their 25th anniversary, the Strutters revisited the roots of jazz with “Back To Bourbon Street”, a colorful show embracing the spirit and festiveness of New Orleans. In 2013, the band unveiled “Shiny Stockings” featuring, for the first time, the vocal stylings of Meloney Collins.  This popular show combined Ms. Collin’s sassy, yet sultry, personality and soulful voice, with the Strutters’ exciting musical arrangements, personable humor and showmanship. The result was a musical theater experience capturing the essential charm and vibrant energy of the golden age of jazz.

The Strutters are excited to share their latest musical project Vinyl Jazz, A Century Celebration. As 2017 approaches and the world embraces the 100th anniversary of recorded jazz, the Strutters with Meloney Collins invite audiences to enjoy a potpourri of jazz, pop and R and B melodies which have shaped our musical landscape. Songs that inspired, lyrics that reflected a particular time in our countries history, and melodies that played a significant role towards the development and enjoyment of American popular music.
