Mile Marker Zero is an electrifying rock band from the northeast composed of brothers Dave Alley (vocals) and Doug Alley (drums), alongside childhood friend Mark Focarile (keyboards), guitarist John Tuohy, and bassist/producer Jaco Lindito. 


With 5 albums released so far, including their concept album, “The Fifth Row,” that had its lead single featured in the widely acclaimed NASCAR Heat 4 videogame, Mile Marker Zero has been creating a buzz since they formed in 2005. They were also the first-ever unsigned artist to be featured in the popular Harmonix/MTV Games video game series, RockBand. In 2016, the band received the award for “Best Band (Connecticut)" at the 2016 New England Music Awards.


They have performed alongside Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Underoath, Spock’s Beard, Devil Wears Prada, Periphery, Scale the Summit, Nothing More, Adrenaline Mob, Fair to Midland, and more.


As 2021 began a new chapter in MMZ history, the band released a live album they recorded during the quarantine. Entitled “Live & Confined,” the album was released worldwide on April 2, 2021. Later that year, MMZ appeared at ProgStock 2021, the US Northeast’s Only Progressive Rock Festival. Their October 6, 2022 show with Reelin’ in the Years is the pre-show for ProgStock 2022, which opens the next day at UCPAC. 2022 also promises a fantastic new album, currently under production.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

MCA Nashville recording artist and Grand Ole Opry member Josh Turner, while a multi-platinum-selling star himself, is a country music fan first and foremost. 


From the start of his career through chart-topping hits like “Your Man,” “Would You Go With Me,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” and “All Over Me,” Turner has immersed himself in country music’s history and its iconic figures. He’s even concocted his own version of Mount Rushmore conceived solely of country music legends. Turner’s “Mount Rushmore of Country Music” boasts five faces rather than four (it’s his mountain, after all) – Randy Travis, John Anderson, Johnny Cash, Vern Gosdin, and Hank Williams. Turner paid tribute to his heroes with his 2021 release Country State of Mind.


For two decades, Turner has been one of country music’s most recognizable voices, with number one hits and five gold and platinum albums. He bridges the gap between country music’s past and present with his deep, velvet voice and unwavering dedication to the tenets of the genre for a concert experience not to be missed!

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is a 1971 American musical fantasy film starring Gene Wilder and adapted from the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. The film tells the story of a poor child named Charlie Bucket who, after finding a Golden Ticket in a chocolate bar, visits Willy Wonka's chocolate factory along with four other children from around the world: Veruca Salt, Mike Teevee, Violet Beauregarde, and Augustus Gloop. During his adventure, Charlie also meets Wonka's workers, the mischievous Oompa-Loompas.

 

In 1972, the film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Score, and Wilder was nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. The film also introduced the song "The Candy Man", written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley, which went on to be recorded by Sammy Davis Jr. and become a popular hit. The film remained in relative obscurity until the 1980s when it gained a loyal cult following. In 2014, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

 

There will be an organ concert one-half hour before the movie begins. Please note that there will be no short before this presentation.

 

Come in costume! Dress up as your favorite Willy Wonka character or wear your favorite Halloween costume!  Two lucky winners (Best Willy Wonka Character and Best Overall Costume) will win the Golden Ticket - actually a pair of tickets - to an upcoming show at UCPAC. Photos in the lobby before the show, free popcorn for kids of all ages, and other fun surprises!

From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) has captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians, intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before! Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-creates songs, in all their depth and glory, with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with honest, heart-thumping intensity.
