At 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10, comedian Lucas Bohn will encourage you to leave all seriousness at the door, buy a beer in the lobby, and settle in for an evening of chortling at Bohn’s edgy (but clean), sidesplitting, dry comedy.
Bohn is one of the most-booked college acts in the nation, and his smart, audacious comedy, with a perfect blend of schoolboy charm and bad-boy charisma, headlines in clubs throughout the U.S.
Tickets to Bohn’s show cost $35 for preferred reserved seating (first six rows orchestra, and two rows center balcony), and $30 for general reserved seating. A $3-per-ticket processing charge and 6.5-percent sales tax will be added to each purchase.
On Thursday evening, Nov. 11, choose between a performance at 5 p.m. or 8 p.m. to relive the unforgettable and timeless tunes of The Kingston Trio. Take this opportunity to rediscover all your old favorites in this “Keep the Music Playing” tour, which celebrates the group’s more than 60 years of entertaining audiences everywhere.
All three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich have intrinsic links to and experience with the original group: Mike, the “adopted son” of Nick Reynolds, grew up at the knee of the Kingston Trio founding member who was Mike’s lifelong musical mentor; Tim, a close friend since boyhood, is one of the few musicians outside the Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Don Marovich has performed with the original Trio and plays guitar, banjo and mandolin.
With their signature striped shirts, banjos, bongos, guitars and charismatic personalities, this group reminds its audiences why the Trio became one of the biggest singing and recording acts of all time. “It Takes a Worried Man” to spend a “Greenback Dollar” and sip a “Scotch and Soda” while we all remind ourselves what happened to “Tom Dooley” and, as always, sing along to “Where Have All the Flowers Gone.”
Tickets to see The Kingston Trio cost $40 for preferred reserved seating (first six rows orchestra, and two rows center balcony), and $35 for general reserved seating. A $3-per-ticket processing charge and 6.5-percent sales tax will be added to each purchase.
