CLASSIC ALBUMS LIVE – HOTEL CALIFORNIA visits the Rialto Square Theatre on Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 7:30 pm.
Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and recreates them live on stage – note for note, cut for cut, using the best musicians. “Think of it as a recital,” says Martin. “These albums are historic and stand the test of time.”
With 100+ shows a year across North America, Classic Albums Live has seen massive success in performing arts centers and theaters. Fans in Texas, Las Vegas, Florida, New York and central and eastern Canada have all continued to support the series and make it a sustaining, successful show.
“We’re really looking forward to connecting with music lovers across all of North America,” says Martin. “The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Eagles and Fleetwood Mac albums are the staples of our continued success, but we reserve the right to surprise, with albums such as, Prince’s Purple Rain and Meatloaf’s Bat out of Hell. There is no shortage of classic albums that need the respect and care that only Classic Albums Live can administer.”

The all vocal country sensation Home Free is bringing Nashville country standards and country-dipped pop hits to town (and having a great time doing so). The band comes to town on the heels of their most recent full-length album release, TIMELESS, bringing with them new music, new jokes, and new production.
Home Free has become a household name, amassing more than 185-million YouTube views, and entertaining more than 300,000 people live in concert since bursting on the national scene in 2013. The 5-man band has become known for their show-stopping performances that mix their signature no-instrument, all-vocal music with their quick-witted humor.
Their fourth studio album, TIMELESS, was released on September 23, 2017 via Columbia Records and debuted at the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. This release marks the 4th consecutive top 5 Billboard debut for their album.
NiteLite Promotions and VenuWorks Present BUDDY GUY at the Rialto Square Theatre on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 8:00 pm.
At age 81, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has received 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 37 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
These many years later, Buddy Guy is a genuine American treasure and one of the final surviving connections to an historic era in the country’s musical evolution.
“I worry a lot about the legacy of Muddy, Wolf, and all the guys who created this stuff,” he says. “I want people to remember them. It’s like the Ford car—Henry Ford invented the Ford car, and regardless how much technology they got on them now, you still have that little sign that says ‘Ford’ on the front.
