  • - "This electrifying concert musical resurrects the QUEEN OF ROCK N ROLL"

    Created, Written and Directed by Randy Johnson

    Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences – trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s greatest legends.

    “A Night with Janis Joplin rocks the house. This will rock your socks off!”

This rare ability comes with an age-old warning, but will she ignore it to save her bother Harlan as he slips into decline? Caught between tantalizing dreams and family obligations“An Impossible Combination” examines the unpredictable consequences of trying to mold the world into a happier place. In the words of Mark Twain, “Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination.”

    - Teddy Andreadis, J.D. Andrew, Brad Davis and Billy Bob “Bud” Thornton make up “The Boxmasters”; an American roots-rock band of seasoned musicians whose sound is rich in rhythm and story.

    Formed in 2007, the band released the self-titled debut record “The Boxmasters” to critical acclaim. This two-CD set was comprised of original songs – including the Americana Radio hit “The Poor House” – and eclectic covers of tunes by The Beatles, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Mott The Hoople and Mel Tillis.

    After touring the country in 2008, The Boxmasters released a Christmas album – “Christmas Cheer” – and by April of 2009 had released their third album – “Modbilly” (a term that they coined as their style of music which was influenced by 60’s British mod music and influences from Southern American music, both pop and country)– which was yet another double album that spun to the top of the Americana charts for two weeks. “Modbilly” later was ranked #14 on the 2009 Americana Music Association’s Top 100 Albums of The Year.

    The Boxmasters are back with a new album – “Somewhere Down The Road” – slated for release April 7, along with an aggressive tour schedule that kicks off with a slew of LIVE performances from Texas to Tennessee and throughout the South.
