Under the Streetlamp

Saturday, 09/16/2017 8:00 PM

The Hylton Presents season opens with a lively celebration of classic hits from the 1950s to the 1970s. In an evening of unforgettable entertainment, Under the Streetlamp transports audiences back to an era of sharkskin suits and flashy cars with their tight harmonies and slick dance moves. Former stars of the Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical Jersey Boys, Michael Ingersoll, Christopher Kale Jones, Brandon Wardell, and Shonn Wiley exude the irresistible rapport of a modern day Rat Pack as they perform doo-wop, motown, and old time rock ‘n’ roll favorites. Enjoy popular hits from The Drifters, Roy Orbison, Nat King Cole, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles, plus a show-stopping salute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons that is guaranteed to bring down the house. A favorite of PBS audiences, this dynamic quartet comes to the Merchant Hall stage in an electrifying performance. Retro never sounded so good. Attachments

Sam Hunt, Maren Morris & Chris Janson at Jiffy Lube Live

Saturday, 09/16/2017 7:00 PM

"Drinkin' Too Much" singer Sam Hunt embarks on a summer-long tour this year, and he comes to Jiffy Lube Live on Saturday 16th September 2017! The country singer is hitting the road with fellow rising country stars Maren Morris & Chris Janson, and will be entertaining fans with his high-octane genre-bending hits, and some brand new hits in the making! Sam Hunt launched into the country music scene in 2014 with his smash hit debut album Montevallo, which became (and remains) the best-selling debut album for a country artist since 2011. Montevallo charted several record-breaking singles, making Hunt the first country music artist in 22 years to reach the top of three country music charts simultaneously, the first country music artist since Clint Black in 1989 to occupy both year-end number one album and single, and the first solo male artist to land four number ones on the Country Airplay chart from a debut studio album.
