Of the tour, Raitt says, "I'm feeling pretty charged, and the band and I are at the top of our game,"says Bonnie Raitt. "This period of my life is more exciting and vital than I was expecting, and for that I'm really grateful.

Dennis Quaid and the Sharks, The Ellen Theatre

Dennis Quaid isn’t just an actor turned rock star, he’s a true musician who has been performing for over two decades. His band is known for their rock and roll and country-soul sound— and for being a whole lot of fun. Quaid says of the show, “The audiences have a blast, which is all we want. I make a complete and utter fool of myself. I think that’s the only way to have fun onstage, instead of trying to pretend to be cool and all the rest of that stuff.”


Florida Georgia Line, Featuring Nelly and Chris Lane, Brick Breeden Fieldhouse

Saturday, September 23, 2017, 7:00pm

It’s not often a set includes country and rap, but the combination works. Florida Georgia line is a duet tagged as bro-country, transitioning from the traditional country feel to their hybrid sounds and lyrics. The fourth best-selling rap artist in American music history, Nelly continues to excite audiences. Chris Lane is best known for his single "For Her," which became #1 on the iTunes Top Country Songs chart. Get your tickets early!


Quick Draws, Cocktails and Costumes, Emerson Cultural Center

These days, the term “quick draw” no longer refers to a gun fight, but rather an event where artists gather to create original work throughout the evening. Guests watch the creation, nibble on appetizers and a signature cocktail, then dance the night away. Costumes encouraged!
