Steve Martin's Bright Star: The Musical @ Elm Street Cultural Arts Village

Inspired by a real event and featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway’s Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and ’40s. When literary editor Alice Murphy meets a young soldier just home from World War II, he awakens her longing for the child she once lost. Haunted by their unique connection, Alice sets out on a journey to understand her past – and what she finds has the power to transform both of their lives. Propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies and powerfully moving performances. An uplifting theatrical journey that holds you tight in its grasp, Bright Star is as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.

Tyson Halford Live on the Rooftop
Apr 18 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Join us on the rooftop for live music on April 18 with Tyson Halford ! As always, live music and rooftop openings are weather permitting and subject to change.
Bio:
Tyson Halford isn’t interested in “catching the wave” of the next popular scene. Writing music that moves the soul and invokes emotions is what it’s all about. His organic sound is indicative of his upbringing in rural Western North Carolina, however his experience performing and writing music with bands of many different genres around the southeast including rock, country, blues, funk, jazz, and soul make his sound somewhat unpredictable. What you end up with is a southern soaked, guitar riff induced sound with overtones of rock, folk, Americana, blues, and jazz. Heartfelt vocals, well written lyrics, tasteful guitar, and music with feeling are just some of the things Tyson brings to the table as an artist. While writing and recording songs for his upcoming release, he is a guitarist for Atlanta southern rock band Southside of the Tracks. His new single “Take It From Me” is expected to be released in early 2019, followed by an EP, produced by Emanant Music and producer Chas Childers.

Six seasoned musicians recreate an early Elton John show complete with bell-bottoms, platforms, glitter and sequins. Frontman Kenny Metcalf channels Elton while playing piano and providing lead vocals. Kenny Metcalf As Elton has entertained thousands and continues to walk in the legendary footsteps of the Rocket Man.
Band Members:Kenny Metcalf – as Elton, Rolly DeVore, Larry Hampton, Brian Paulson, Back up singers: Sharlene Griffith, Stefanie Brignoni, Desi D’Amani
Location:West Hollywood, CA
“ I recently had the pleasure of seeing Kenny Metcalf perform his show “Kenny Metcalf As Elton” at NAMM 2012. I was amazed at how well he does Elton, he sounds just like him vocally and his piano playing and stage antics, along with an excellent band are so accurate you wonder if you haven’t been transported back in time to some of the historic concerts such as Dodger Stadium in 1975!
For any Elton John fan that likes to take a trip down memory lane and visit Elton’s music of the early 70’s, this is the show to see! It brought back some fun memories for me as one who was there from the beginning! -Caleb Quaye”—
Caleb Quaye original guitarist for Elton John
