October

For George Thorogood and his longtime band The Destroyers – Jeff Simon (drums, percussion), Bill Blough (bass guitar), Jim Suhler (rhythm guitar) and Buddy Leach (saxophone) – their 40th anniversary is indestructible proof that staying true to yourself and the music can still mean something. And with a catalog of iconic hits that includes “Who Do You Love”, “I Drink Alone”, “One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer”, “Move It On Over”, “Bad To The Bone” and more, being able to share it with audiences is what will always matter.
Ultimately, the 40 Years Strong Tour is 50% celebration, 50% declaration and 100% Thorogood throwdown. But after 4 decades as one of the most consistent – and consistently unique – careers in rock, can a guitar-slinger still at the top of his game choose a moment that sums it all up? “Stan Musial was once asked, ‘What was the greatest day of your career?’ And Stan said ‘Every day when I walk onto the field is the greatest day.’ I feel the same way,” George says. “Every night when I walk out on that stage is the highlight of my career. I hit that first chord, the band kicks in, and we hear the audience respond. That’s the rush. 40 years into this, and every night, that's still the only moment that matters.”
For George Thorogood & The Destroyers – and for rock & roll – it doesn’t get stronger than that.

Carlos Oscar is a funny and wildly entertaining comedian that all ages will enjoy. Known for his charming, witty and energetic stage persona, Carlos fully acts out his jokes by telling stories everyone can identify with, and metamorphosing into various characters and voices. He jokes most often about the humorous side of family, pop-culture and everyday mishaps. His comedy is always crossover so it has given him a platform to entertain all audiences. Carlos states, "When people hear I'm clean, they may think 'how is he a comic?' The reality is I am much more creative and funnier with material I don't and won't fall back on with four-letter words or lewd innuendos to entertain an audience." It is Carlos' brand of comedy that has paved the way to appearances on TV such as "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," HBO and performances on Comedy Central. Carlos was born in Manhattan, New York. On the 4th of July in Bellevue Hospital, as a matter of fact. He says, "What are the odds of a Puerto Rican guy being born in New York City — gotta be 2 to 1." His comedy influences were started very early on as a child. He states, "My big influences were Johnny Carson, whom I'd stay up on a school night to watch; Bill Cosby — simply the best; and, of course, someone with my similar background: New York born, Puerto Rican comic Freddie Prinze, Sr." After finishing high school, Carlos enlisted in the U.S Air Force. Upon fulfilling his commitment, he returned to Los Angeles where he attended UCLA to take an acting class. It was during this class that he came to realize that comedy was his gift. "My dream is to one day be blessed with the opportunity to entertain people on TV every week with my own show, one that is truly crossover with great integrity and bottom-line FUNNY!!!" Carlos lives in Pasadena, California with his wife, two daughters, AND his mother-in-law... don't laugh — it's true.

The Lettermen
October 04, 2014 $35

In the late 50’s, most vocal groups had school type names such as Danny & the Juniors, The Four Freshmen and The Four Preps. The Lettermen chose the name The Lettermen and wore letter sweaters. By the time those names became passé in the early sixties, The Lettermen had already had a few hit singles and albums, and were a tremendous success in Colleges and nightclubs. Capitol Records, The Lettermen’s record label, was reluctant to try to market a new name as The Lettermen wanted, due to the fact that it was already an established world-wide name.

Doors Open @ 6:30pm

Show @ 7:30pm

Moscow Ballet Great Russian Nutcracker
December 11, 2014 @ 7:00pm
In 1993, Moscow Ballet toured the Great Russian Nutcracker to Washington DC, Baltimore, Syracuse, Orlando, Ft Lauderdale, New Haven, Reading and Charleston WV for the first time to critical acclaim. Directed and choreographed by Stanislav Vlasov, former soloist with the Bolshoi Ballet, and well known as a “Grand Dance Artist,” the inaugural six-week tour starred principal ballerina Lillia Sabitova. It also featured the innovative rolling backgrounds first created by a St Petersburg Conservatory of Music producer, and which were the inspiration for Eisenstein’s cinematic technique. Since then the annual tour has increased to include about 100 performances on the tour to cities from San Juan to Calgary, and from New York to California, traveling with two simultaneously touring companies of forty dancers each. For more information on the Moscow Ballet visit www.nutcracker.com
