Mick Sterling’s At Christmas

Piano Man

Friday, January 7th at 7:30 pm

Member $20/ Non-Member $25/ Student $15

The music Chris produces is rooted in Americana but heeds its own spirit. Born out of the fold, country, storytelling, and rock ‘n roll, Chris both honors and builds on Americana traditions by incorporating a unique pop-music sensibility, subtle synthesizers, rich harmonies, and imaginative production choices. But despite late-night deep dives in the studio, Chris never strays from the core of the song itself and isn’t afraid to let a raw vocal and woodsy acoustic guitar deliver the story.

Roy Orbison Tribute

Saturday, January 15th at 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm

Member $20/ Non-Member $25/ Student $15

Having always revered the classic legends of the 50s, 60 and ’70s, David K has sung them all with a passion. From the gravel of Joe Cocker to the high howls of Paul McCartney, he could hit the notes and stylize them. While successfully covering smooth ballads and performing classic rock, blues, pop, country, soul, and rockabilly, David’s mantra has always been, “It’s about the song, the great song, and singing it to its best.” Thus upon the historic loss of so many recent legends, with a melancholy look back at the finest tunes ever written, from The Beatles to Elvis, Roy Orbison stands tall with respect among them, and he had that respect from them. The Beatles, Stones, and Beach Boys all opened for Roy. Elvis said that Roy had the best voice in rock and roll. Roy is also heralded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time. “No matter how many times I sing Roy’s hits. they get me, touch me every time. It’s such an honor.” After decades of performing from his home in Minnesota to his 5 years in LA, 4 years in Texas, periodic singer-songwriting - recording and performing in Nashville, to NYC... from piano bars and solo shows to duo, trio and The David K Band in the Twin Cities... rendering an awesome tribute to Roy Orbison has become an exciting new and growing popular endeavor. “Having listened and learned the operatic and dramatic tunes, to his be-bop 50s, to Roy’s rockabilly, then the songs in films like Blue Bayou, In Dreams, and Pretty Woman, it still isn’t over. Then there’s Roy’s comeback with his album Mystery Girl produced by Jeff Lynne of ELO, who then co-wrote the hits of the Traveling Wilburys with Dylan, Harrison, Petty, and Jeff... the excellence is unending.” As obvious as it is that Roy went too soon, his songs can live on. We hope you come again and again to celebrate this awesome tribute to a true legend. “We’ll try to add more and mix it up as we grow this show!” Join David K as Roy Orbison on a sweet dream, a step back in time along the path of one man’s career, a man who had a tragic but resilient life. “Roy said, yes that he had tragedy, but he says he had faith, a strong faith, good friends, and his music... his purpose, music, that got him through. Let’s all remember those three things.” We hope you’ll come to enjoy the history, the music, and the passion that still lives in this music. - David K
