We here at The Kent Stage love to focus on entertaining our fans with each and every show we put on. When an actor has a very good acting career, they become well known as just that. However, some actors share the same deep love for music and live entertainment that we do at our venue. With that being said, when an actor should equally be referred to as a rock star, the experience they bring is something special for the fans. The Kent Stage is happy to present Dennis Quaid’s duo acoustic show Live at The Kent Stage.
Dennis Quaid - Live at The Kent Stage
Saturday November 6th, at 8 P.M.
Tickets go on sale Friday, August 20th at 10 A.M. EST
Prices: Gold Circle $50, Reserved $35
“As far back as I can remember, music has always been a big part of my life,” says Quaid. “My third cousin was Gene Autry, the original Western movie singing cowboy. My grandmother played piano and sang songs from the ’20s, songs from her youth. My dad played piano and crooned like Bing Crosby and looked a little like Dean Martin.”
Among Quaid’s musical heroes are Buddy Holly, Hank Williams, Willie & Waylon, Johnny Cash, the Beatles, the Doors, and James Brown. With influences like those, it’s no surprise that members of the Sharks have serious musical pedigrees of their own: Jamie James led the Kingbees; Sharks members Tom Mancillas, Ken Stange, and Tom Walsh have worked over the years with artists as varied as Harry Dean Stanton, Roger Miller, Tina Turner, Joe Cocker, Supertramp, Jose Feliciano, and America.
Dennis Quaid and The Sharks have been performing in front of thousands of people receiving rave reviews. He is not just another actor turned rock star, he is a rock star. Dennis Quaid is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist. He performs many original plus classic hits such as "Spill the Wine", "Gloria", and many more. The band's origins can be traced to one night when Quaid went to see actor Harry Dean Stanton and his longtime band (appropriately named the Harry Dean Stanton Band) perform at an L.A. club. Quaid was invited to join the band onstage.
At first reluctant because of his decade long layoff from music, Quaid finally did perform with the band and was successful enough that James, also a member of Stanton's band, approached Quaid about starting a group of their own. James quickly began recruiting others for the band and it wasn't long before Dennis Quaid & the Sharks, which specializes in "rock 'n' roll and country-soul," was performing at L.A. clubs. The band even throws in a Jerry Lee Lewis song or two in the mix, such as "Great Balls of Fire," which Quaid has firsthand experience performing, having played "The Killer" in a 1989 biopic. Quaid said the shows are as much fun for those in attendance as they are for the band. "(The audiences) have a blast, which is all we want," he said. "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."
Quaid is just as electrifying in his solo duo acoustic act. We are very excited to be able to bring the actor turned rockstar Dennis Quaid Live at The Kent Stage this November. Show starts at 8 P.M. and both the doors & box office will open one hour prior. Until Covid-19 test numbers recede, we have implemented new Covid-19 policies in response to the rise in the Delta Variant. We will be administering temperature checks, mask recommendations for unvaccinated persons in attendance, as well as our newly installed completely touchless restrooms. As always we thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you at The Kent Stage very soon!
