    Doors at 7:00 PM, Show at 7:30 PM

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
    THE STORY: 
    "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" is a Sherlock Holmes short story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In this tale, Holmes and Dr. Watson are approached by a distressed young woman named Helen Stoner. She seeks Holmes' help in investigating the mysterious death of her sister, Julia, who died under strange circumstances shortly before her wedding. The only clue is the mention of a "speckled band" by the dying Julia. As Holmes delves into the case, he uncovers a plot involving a stepfather, a dangerous animal, and a clever method of murder. Through Holmes' deductive reasoning, the true culprit is revealed, and justice is served.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    The James Gregory show turns the clock back to a time when life was simpler; to a better time, before the death of common sense; a time when people sat on the front porch and actually talked to each other without a cell phone in their ear.
    James’ success, like his comedy, is the direct result of the values he grew up with. And now, twenty something years later, it is this unique brand of humor that packs the crowds into his sold-out shows. The absence of vulgarity sets James apart and his stories are carefully crafted art. “I have lived long enough to know people, know life”, Gregory reflects. “My comedy is based on my life experiences. It’s real, it’s funny and the audience loves it. That’s why I’m still in business.”  


    For decades, the unforgettable caricature of veteran comedian James Gregory has stood grinning: his shirt untucked, his arms outstretched, a carefree welcome to a down-home, hilarious comedy experience. It’s storytelling at its best. The trademark caricature is the essence of humorist James Gregory’s comedy: rib-tickling reflections on life from the front porch.

    PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

    Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band has headlined festivals, packed music venues, and rocked corporate events for companies ranging from small businesses to massive Fortune 500 companies. The members of Mixtape have toured in over 6 countries with internationally known recording artists, as well as shared stages with Rick Springfield, .38 Special, Foreigner, Mickey Thomas and Starship, Anthrax, Kiss, Brett Michaels, Chicago, and many more! Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band is America’s #1 touring tribute to our 80s mix tapes!


    The 80s gave us MTV, big hair, arena rock, the Moonwalk, the Rubik’s Cube, Max Headroom, Trapper Keepers, Atari and Nintendo, and John Hughes movies. And in the 80s, we totally cruised the park on the weekend, hung out at the mall, lived at the arcade…and we made mix tapes! We made mix tapes for that guy or girl we liked. We made mix tapes for our trip to the lake for the weekend. We made mix tapes for that special friend who was moving away so they’d never forget about us. Do you remember calling in to the radio station to make a request just so you could add that song to your mix tape? We would sit by the boom box and wait for the DJ to play that request so we could hit “record!” Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band is America’s #1 touring tribute to our 80s mix tapes, and a Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band show will immediately transport you back to a time when we were all having the time of our lives!


    A Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band concert is so much more than just a concert. The setlists will take you back in time on a journey through the greatest decade in music history. The band will bring you into the show with a multimedia display that’s designed to stimulate every one of your senses. Dual front men will bring all of the biggest hits from the widest variety of artists and bands to the stage. While ordinary tributes will play hits from one band or artist, Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band will keep you on your feet all night long with number one hit after number one hit! You’ll relive the biggest hits from artists and bands like Journey, Bon Jovi, Toto, Huey Lewis & The News, Van Halen, REO Speedwagon, Mr. Mister, Chicago, Bryan Adams, The Outfield, Tears For Fears, Dire Straits, The Romantics, Poison, Night Ranger, A-ha, Yes, Glass Tiger, Bad English, Don Henley, Peter Gabriel, Loverboy, and a ton more! In addition to having the most talented and entertaining singers and musicians on stage, you’ll also be blown away by a fully customized 80s laser lights AND video display as you’ll no doubt spot some of your favorite 80s music video moments on stage. As each Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band show unfolds, the night presses on and the wheels usually come off when the hair band hits start thumping!


    If you haven’t seen Mixtape – 80s Tribute Band in person, you’re missing out on a live concert experience that you will never forget! Find the band on tour when they come to your area because it’s time to press play on YOUR……..MIXTAPE!
