Tony Coleman Band and Friends

Tony Coleman Band and Friends

Oct 18, 7:30pm - Oct 18, 9:30pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre510 Main StreetClifton Forge, VA24422 Map

Friday, October 18, 2018 at 7:30pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $25; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $20; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $35.
Produced by The Alleghany Highlands Blues Society
SONA Bank Concert Series

Tony Coleman has had an illustrious career touring the world with B.B. King, Otis Clay, Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, Albert Collins, Etta James, James Cotton, Katie Webster, Z.Z. Hill, O.V. Wright and Buddy Guy. Local blues artists from The Alleghany Highlands Blues Society, producers of the shows, will open the show for Tony’s Band.

His early aspirations led to his meeting soul singer Otis Clay. He quickly joined Clay’s band and toured with him for a couple years, recording a live album in Tokyo, Japan. Out of touring and recording with Otis Clay came opportunities to work with other major R&B and blues artists. After a jam session in a Chicago club called The High Chaparral, B.B. King jammed with Otis Clay’s rhythm section. B.B. King liked the rhythm section so much that he asked them to join him as his touring band. So Tony Coleman, Russell Jackson and Leonard Gill became B.B. King’s rhythm section. As fate would have it, Tony was only with B.B. for a few months when B.B.’s ex-drummer returned.

Tony Coleman returned to Chicago and rejoined Otis Clay’s band for another tour in Japan. From Otis Clay, Tony moved to Dallas, Texas in 1980 to play drums for Johnnie Taylor. Tony toured with Johnnie for a couple of years and was then asked to join Bobby Blue Bland, with whom he worked for a few years. In the middle of a combined B.B. King/Bobby Blue Bland tour, B.B. needed a drummer and Tony ended up playing drums for both artists for the remainder of that tour, playing two shows a night. At that point, Tony rejoined B.B. King and has since been touring with Mr. King’s organization, performing blues music around the globe.

Alexa Rose Band: Medicine for Living Tour

Alexa Rose Band: Medicine for Living Tour

Oct 25, 7:30pm - Oct 25, 9:30pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre510 Main StreetClifton Forge, VA24422 Map

ALEXA ROSE
‘Medicine for Living’ Debut Album Tour
In the John E Hillert Auditorium
Friday, October 25, 7:30 PM
The John E. Hillert Family Event Series
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $17; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $30.

Alexa Rose was born in the Alleghany Highlands of western Virginia, raised in the tiny railroad town of Clifton Forge. Though no one her immediate family played or sang, she inherited a deep musical legacy.

That visceral connection is at the core of Rose’s debut album, "Medicine for Living (Big Legal Mess)." A stunning ten-track effort, it finds the 25-year-old singer-songwriter bringing a wellspring of tradition to bear on an enlivening collection of contemporary roots songs. Rolling Stone selected the album’s title track as one of its “Ten Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Right Now.”

“In a way, 'Medicine for Living' is about all the lessons I’ve learned, of people and places that have shaped my worldview and my definitions of love and commitment. There’s a lot of tension between wanting to leave your home and go out into the world, and the roots that pull you back.” -Alexa Rose

This performance is part of the John E. Hillert Family Event Series

Community Dinner and Dance with Woody and Marcia McKenzie

Community Dinner and Dance with Woody and Marcia McKenzie

Nov 2, 6:00pm - Nov 2, 8:00pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre510 Main StreetClifton Forge, VA24422 Map

Saturday, November 2 at 6pm
BBQ Dinner at 6pm in the Thomas P. Dean/Racey and Dean Underground Lounge and Café
Community Dance at 7PM in the Westrock Community Room.
Dinner and Dance: $10 Adult; $7 student and senior.
Sponsored by The John E. Hillert Family

Bring the whole family for a late afternoon of food and fun! First, we’ll enjoy a casual BBQ dinner in the Underground Lounge and Café, then we’ll head up to the Westrock Community room for a relaxed community dance.

Circles, squares, whole set and contra dances – some call an evening of these kinds of dances a “barn dance.” Others use the terms “hoedown,” “family dance,” or even “barnless dance.” We have settled on the phrase “community dance.” Whatever you call it, it’s a great way to connect with friends and family through music, using dancing as the medium.

You have no dance experience? No problem! Woody and Marcia McKenzie make the evening easy. Marcia will teach you everything you need to know. She will walk you through each arrangement, giving you a preview of how it works, and show you how to do the simple figures that will allow you to meet and greet a number of other folks during the course of each dance. It’s fun, and it brings you closer together as a group. And, it’s appropriate for all ages and levels of experience. If you can walk, you can do these dances!

Woody and Marcia McKenzie have been playing together since they were married in 1983. They met in the White Mountains of Arizona, where they were introduced through their music. Long-time residents of the New River Valley (Virginia), they moved to Lynchburg in the fall of 1998 and have been running community dances ever since.
Space is limited for our first community dance, so register today.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre510 Main StreetClifton Forge, VA24422 Map

The Highlands Community Bank Film Series
Bohemian Rhapsody (PG 13)
Sun., Nov. 17 at 2pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
at the Historic Masonic Theatre
**All Films are Free**

Relive the music from one of the greatest bands in rock history.

About the film:
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

We are pleased to present an ongoing series of classic, family and popular films, shown in the beautifully restored John E. Hillert Auditorium.

Last Illusion: The Premiere Tribute to The Trans-Siberian Orch

Dec 1, 4:00pm - Dec 1, 6:00pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre510 Main StreetClifton Forge, VA24422 Map

Sunday, December 1 at 4pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $15; Rear Balcony: $12; Box Seats: $30.

Last Illusion filled our stage two Decembers ago with a production that left audiences amazed. An illness kept them off our stage last year, but we are pleased to present these talented musicians and technicians back this year to celebrate the magic of Christmas and the magic of TSO through the magic of Last Illusion.

Several years in the making, Last Illusion was formed with one sole purpose: to become the premier musical tribute to The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, whose founder, Paul O'Neill, died last year.

O'Neill explained the influences that led to his vision for Trans-Siberian Orchestra in an interview with The Morning Call last year. "[Effects-heavy concert production] was always part of the vision for Trans-Siberian Orchestra, [and] the mixing of classical with rock, which I obviously got from bands like Emerson, Lake and Palmer," he said. "The rock-opera aspect, which I love because it gives a third dimension, which I plagiarized from The Who."

Experience the magic for yourself!

The Shenandoah Academy of Dance, directed by Missy Belcher Floyd, returns to delight the entire family with "The Nutcracker". One of our most popular performances of last season, the ballet is based on the E.T.A. Hoffman tale, The Nutcracker and the King of Mice. Although the performance seen on stage today differs in detail from the original story, the basic plot remains the same. Clara dreams of her beloved Nutcracker winning the battle against the Mouse King, journeys through the land of the Snow Queen and her King, and arrives in the Land of Sweets and the Sugar Plum Fairy. The ballet, set to the timeless Tchaikovsky score, was first performed in 1892 by the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the Kirov Ballet.

Missy Belcher Floyd, Director, will continue to invite participants of all ages and levels of experience from local dance studios to perform in this production, as well! Experience the magic that is "The Nutcracker" with the Shenandoah Ballet this December!

The Preacher's Wife (Rated PG)
Tues., Dec. 10 at 7pm
In the John E. Hillert Auditorium
at the Historic Masonic Theatre
**All Films are Free**

Amazon reviewer Mishka left this note:
"This film will always be one of our favorites. This contemporary re-make of "The Bishop's Wife" shines with wonderful performances by Denzel Washington, Courtney B. Vance, Jennifer Lewis, young Justin Pierre Edmund and the soul-stirring vocals of Whitney Houston. Turning despair into triumph - and containing just the right amount of humor - this film quietly resonates with faith and will put a song in your heart and a smile on your face. It's a genuine pleasure to recommend this family-friendly film."

About the film:
A cleric begins to doubt himself and is visited by an angel. The heavenly emissary is supposed to help the good reverend over his midlife crisis, but he is distracted by the cleric's lovely young wife. A remake with gospel music of the `The Bishop's Wife'.

We are pleased to present an ongoing series of classic, family and popular films, shown in the beautifully restored John E. Hillert Auditorium.

Unable to shake the feeling that he doesn't fit in, the adult Buddy travels to New York, in full elf uniform, in search of his real father.

An Evening with Buddy Holly: featuring Robbie Limon

An Evening with Buddy Holly: featuring Robbie Limon

Apr 5, 4:00pm - Apr 5, 6:00pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre510 Main StreetClifton Forge, VA24422 Map

Robbie Limon won critical acclaim for his uncanny ability to replicate the vocal characteristics of period singers. Robbie has wowed audiences throughout the east coast and won numerous awards for his work in the syndicated theatrical productions of stage musicals about Buddy Holly.

This performance is based on a true story, happening in Greenwich Village, New York, in the late months of 1958. The audience is present during Buddy's band rehearsal as he prepares for the mid-western cavalcade of performers known as The Winter Dance Party of 1959. The stage vibe is intimate as Buddy's dialogue is totally directed at the audience; the tone is conversational and responsive to questions raised during the pre-show warm-up.

The show's premise provides context for an evening of Holly favorites as well as those of the Everly Brothers and Little Richard. Are we joking? No, these artists were friends of Buddy and he pays tribute to these influences in the show. This unique format is certain to give an inside look at a life which has been described as “eighteen months of fame and generations of influence”.

This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.

Tickets: Tickets: Main Orchestra: $25; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $20; Rear Balcony: $15; Box Seats: $35.

May 16, 7:30pm - May 16, 9:30pm

Historic Masonic Theatre and Masonic Amphitheatre510 Main StreetClifton Forge, VA24422 Map

Everyone is still talking about last year's performance by this talented young artist. By popular demand, we are bringing him for a Saturday night concert event sure to amaze.

Take a journey back in time to the life and music of "The Man in Black" performed by Cash Unchained. The band has been nationally sought after and has toured all over the U.S., bringing the sights and sounds of the legendary Johnny Cash.

Johnny Cash may not have been the greatest singer or musical technician, but his sound was unforgettable. Steady like a train, sharp as a razor, with the perfect blend of country, rock 'n' roll, and folk music, Cash paved the way for artists of all genres for years to come. Without Johnny Cash, we wouldn't have some of the finest music we've all enjoyed over the past 6 decades. Performed by some of the finest musicians in the state of Virginia, James Tamelcoff III captures Cash's trademark baritone voice, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three.

This performance is part of the SONA Bank Concert Series.


Tickets: Main Orchestra: $20; Rear Orchestra and Front Balcony: $18; Rear Balcony: $16; Box Seats: $35.
