Folk Acoustic - Brooks Williams w/ Al Cath Opening

Brooks Williams is a stunning guitarist whose blues-soaked, rhythmic and soulful music defies categorization. After 15 solo recordings and nearly two decades of touring the world, he is one of the most well-respected players on the circuit. His concerts are legendary: from coast-to-coast, country-to-country, one man, one guitar, rollin' and tumblin' like nobody's business.

Amazing U Presents: Don White's Comedy Workshop

I have been teaching people how to command a stage and how to captivate an audience with comedy for fifteen years. Picturing yourself grabbing the attention of a group of people and making them laugh for the entire duration of your performance becomes a lot easier to do after we have demystified and taken the illusion of magic out of the process.

Folk Acoustic - Rick Gottlieb and Elizabeth Lorrey with The Rafters

Elizabeth Lorrey crafts a dark blend of edgy, intense acoustic rock. At once deeply personal and painfully universal, Lorrey's lyrics will stay with you long after the last clear note fades away. And while her polished, recordings are mesmerizing, her live shows have made her a local favorite with a growing fan base in the northeast.

Big Band Jazz - Hal McIntyre Orchestra

The Hal McIntyre Orchestra has been known as "The Band America Loves." Don Pentleton, veteran Hal McIntyre drummer and present band leader, is keeping the McIntyre tradition by playing the band's original arrangements from the 40's and 50's. The orchestra will feature original material that lulls the listeners into subtle romantic moments with lush ballads, such as its 1943 recorded hit, "Sentimental Journey" and the hit sensation, "Moonlight In Vermont." Be prepared to jump off your seats as the band fires its way through footstomping tempos.
