One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.

The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads;“Those Canaan Days,” to country-western, “One More Angel in Heaven,” and calypso “Benjamin Calypso,” along with the unforgettable classics, “Any Dream Will Do,” and “Close Every Door.”

Whitney’s musical legacy is brought to life in this critically acclaimed stage show described as “mind-blowingly spot on.” Be stunned by the breathtaking vocals of Belinda Davids – a RiSA chart-topping artist in her home country of South Africa – who has performed alongside the likes of Keri Hilson, Keyshia Cole, and Monica and featured on Fox TV’s ‘Showtime at the Apollo’ and BBC1 TV’s ‘Even Better Than the Real Thing.’ With the accompaniment of a live band, backing vocalists, and choreographed dancers, plus state-of-the-art sound, lighting, vision, and theatrical effects, this is a beautifully crafted tribute to one of the world’s most revered singers.

Category: Concert / Live Music
POCO was one of the first groups to pioneer Country-Rock music. The harmonies and instruments of Country mixed with Rock'n'Roll rhythms, paved the way for supergroups like the Eagles with their influence running deep in both Country and Pop music. They found platinum success early in their career, and four decades later Rusty Young, who wrote and sang the massive hits “Crazy Love” and “Call It Love,” still leads this incredible band. Other hits include, “Heart Of The Night.” Spellbound,” “Keep On Tryin,’” and “Good Feelin’ To Know.”

Poco has released “All Fired Up,” their first studio CD in 13 years. Early reviews include, No Depression: “The band still sounds fresh, not a rehash, true to the past but not wallowing in it.” Soundpress states, “Poco is a simmering set from the country rock stalwarts who are ready to stamp their mark on another decade.” Be sure to get your tickets soon to see POCO in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre.

One evening. Two amazing artists! Jeff Kashiwa is one of the most compelling young saxophonists in contemporary jazz. Having established himself in the 1990’s as one of the most diverse saxmen during his decade long tenure with The Rippingtons, Kashiwa’s instincts led him to more dynamic endeavors through his solo career. It surprised many when Jeff left the group to venture out on his own, but he had things to say through his own music. Kashiwa now has nine CDs released under his own name and has continued to record as a guest artist with many other artists as well. In 2004, Kashiwa founded The Sax Pack, a trio of saxophone headliners, featuring himself, Steve Cole and Kim Waters. The group released two CDs together and charmed audiences with their Rat Pack style repartee’ in tours across the U.S. and abroad. His newest CD, Let It Ride, features a host of the greatest musicians in the world of Contemporary Jazz, including Russ Freeman, David Benoit, Chuck Loeb and Tom Schuman of Spyro Gyra.

Saxophonist, Steve Cole is one of the most celebrated players in contemporary jazz. Known for consistently cranking out chart-topping singles that deploy big vibrant pop hooks, contemporary jazz saxophonist Cole conjures a sonic escapade with the hypnotic “Mirage,” the first single from his eighth album, “Turn It Up.” The Chicago native exploded onto the scene in 1998 with the album “Stay Awhile” that was produced by fellow Chicagoan Brian Culbertson. The disc scored two #1 hits and earned Cole the Oasis Smooth Jazz Award for best new artist shortly before his sophomore set, “Between Us,” was released in 2000. His catchy singles made him an instant radio favorite and he cranked them out with regularity on subsequent albums; Between Us, NY LA, Spin, True, and Moonlight. In addition to his work as solo artist, Steve has performed/recorded, with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Boz Scaggs, Larry Carlton, Jeff Lorber, Jim Peterik, Freddie Cole, Cyrus Chestnut, and KMFDM, and has been a featured soloist with the City of Prague Orchestra, and The Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Steve is also a founding member of The Sax Pack, a stellar sax trio completed by Marcus Anderson and Jeff Kashiwa. Don’t miss your chance to see these two amazing saxophonists in the intimate setting of the Studio Theatre. It will be an evening to remember! Tickets for this show are also available at www.BrevardMusicGroup.com.

BJ Thomas owns one of the most distinctive voices in American pop music-a reassuringly masculine timbre conveyed with a smattering of unique embellishments. With over 70 million records sold, BJ's vocal versatility is as apparent today as it was when he recorded his first hit in 1967, "I'm so Lonesome I Could Cry." A true American institution whose iconic pop, country and gospel hits defined their respective generations and now transcend them, B.J. Thomas has found a unique way to celebrate an incredible half a century in music and some 47 years since his first gold selling hit on Scepter Records. The singer, a five-time Grammy and two-time Dove Award winner who is ranked in Billboard’s Top 50 most played artists over the past 50 years, invites longtime fans and newcomers alike to his living room—or more accurately, The Living Room Sessions, his debut recording for Wrinkled Records featuring intimate acoustic re-imaginings of 12 of his most renowned songs. Many of Thomas’ signature hits, from “Raindrops” to “Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song” and “Lonesome,” find him seeking some level of positivity to overcome the proverbial universal battle with loneliness. He extended this theme into his successful late 70s-early 80s foray into gospel music, which earned him the first four platinum albums in the genre’s history. BJ Thomas has become one of the most recognized and respected voices of the American musical landscape. Be sure not to miss his concert this summer!
