1964

1964 The Tribute Photo

Friday, October 3, @ 8:00 PM

The Stiefel is thrilled to bring back 1964 – one of the first concerts during the renovation over 11 years ago! They are hailed by critics and fans alike as THE most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute….which has earned them the distinction from Rolling Stone magazine as the “Best Beatles Tribute on Earth”. “1964” recreates an early ’60s live Beatle concert with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter with an accuracy that is unmatched.

Graham Alexander is actually right handed and learned to play the bass left handed to more accurately portray Paul. Mark is also a guitar luthier and maintains all of the instruments. His 2 Rickenbacker 325s are custom made by him and contain customizations to more closely resemble and sound like the original Lennon guitars. 1964 has played to SOLD OUT shows at Carnegie Hall, and Red Rocks many times.

HOME FREE Crazy Life Tour

KALEIGH GLANTON (Wichita/The Voice) will open

Home Free Kaleigh Glanton

Friday, October 10 @ 8:00PM

Kaleigh Glanton

Kaleigh appeared on the show “The Voice” and sang her version of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s song “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” in front of the four judges and wowed them all, getting four chairs to turn. Kansan Kaleigh Glanton grew up watching her father play classical guitar and at the age of four she expressed interest in playing guitar also. Of course dad jumped at the opportunity to share his love for the music that had taken him around the world in international competition. Howard Glanton watched his daughter’s talent grow beyond proficient to excellence. Five years ago, at the age of 15, Kaleigh literally discovered her voice. All of a sudden her music shifted from complex melodic and polyphonic textile on guitar to using vocal tonality and rhythm to chronicle life. “I’m just starting out. I want people to hear something new and sometimes they won’t just come and check out a new act. I want some of my songs to make you cry and some to make you smile. I always I want it to be organic and I always want it to be me.”

Home Free

When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC’s The Sing-Off this past December, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota.…rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.

Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to The Sing-Off--performing together for crowds in countless State and County Fairs, on college campuses, in front of Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a Sing-Off victory, swelling their fan base and bringing their homegrown country style into a national spotlight.

Home Free continues to entertain audiences nationwide with their high-energy show peppered with quick-witted humor that meshes Nashville standards with pop hits dipped in country flavor. They arrive to town on the heals of their debut release on Columbia Records Crazy Life Tour.

Heart

Heart

Friday, October 24 @ 8:00PM

Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson first showed the world that women can rock when their band, Heart, stormed the charts in the ’70’s with hits like “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Barracuda,” “Straight On,” and so many more. Not only did the Wilson sisters lead the band, they wrote the songs and played the instruments too, making them the first women in rock to do so. Heart continued topping the charts through the ’80’s and ’90’s with huge hits like “These Dreams,” “Alone,” “What About Love,” “If Looks Could Kill,” “Never,” and a string of other hits that showcased the sisters’ enormous talents as musicians and singers. As individuals, the sisters have also achieved significant success. Ann sang on songs that were both chart successes and motion picture themes, like “Almost Paradise» from Footloose, “Best Man in the World” from Goldenchild, and “Surrender to Me” from Tequila Sunrise, while Nancy composed and performed the scores to a half dozen motion pictures including the award winning “Jerry Maguire” and “Almost Famous.”

Along the way, music by Ann and Nancy Wilson and their band Heart has sold more than 35 million albums, sold out arenas worldwide, and found its way into the soundtrack of American life through radio, motion pictures, television, and associations with branded sponsors. Today, songs made famous by Heart are heard in every aspect of contemporary culture.

Cameron Carpenter

Cameron Carpenter

Saturday, November 8 @ 8:00PM

Cameron Carpenter is “one of the rare musicians who changes the game of his instrument… He is a smasher of cultural and classical music taboos. He is technically the most accomplished organist I have ever witnessed… And most important of all, the most musical.” (The Los Angeles Times) A virtuoso composer-performer unique among keyboardists, Cameron’s approach to the organ is smashing the stereotypes of organists and organ music while generating a level of acclaim, exposure, and controversy unprecedented for an organist. His repertoire – from the complete works of J. S. Bach and Cesar Franck, to his hundreds of transcriptions of non-organ works, his original compositions, and his collaborations with jazz and pop artists – is perhaps the largest and most diverse of any organist. He is the first organist ever nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for a solo album.

Michael McDonald Holiday Songs and HITS

Michael McDonald

Tuesday, December 16 @ 8:00PM

Two notes. That’s all it takes to recognize the voice of Michael McDonald. Distinctive and soulful, it is one of the most yearningly emotive instruments of our times. To this add formidable songwriting and keyboard skills, and you have an artist who has been a singular musical presence for four decades. From ’70s-era Doobie Brothers classics such as “What A Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” through two highly-acclaimed Motown albums, genre-busting guest spots and innovative concept shows, the five-time Grammy Award winning McDonald is both timeless and ever-evolving. After moving from his hometown of St. Louis to Los Angeles in the early ’70s, McDonald honed his talent as a session musician and singer before being invited to join Steely Dan. Over the course of four classic albums, from Katy Lied to Gaucho, McDonald became an integral part of the group’s sound, singing background vocals on FM staples like “Black Friday” and “Peg.”

In the mid-’70s, McDonald joined The Doobie Brothers, helping the band redefine their funky R & B sound as a singer, keyboardist and songwriter on such Top 40 singles as “Takin’ It To The Streets,” “It Keeps You Runnin’,” “Minute By Minute” and “What A Fool Believes.”

With a career that encompasses five Grammys, numerous chart successes, personal and professional accolades, as well as collaborations with some of the world’s most prominent artists, Michael McDonald remains an enduring force in popular music.
