Jul 20th, 2016Press Release from ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks

BETHLEHEM, PA – Kevin Griffin of Better than Ezra, Musikfest favorites Igor & the Red Elvises, Jimmy & the Parrots and a tribute to Carole King are among the newly announced shows that will blow music lovers away when they perform at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks’ Musikfest Cafй presented by Yuengling. Tickets for the shows go on sale Tuesday, July 26, 10 a.m., to ArtsQuest Members and Friday, July 29, 10 a.m., to the public; they’ll be available at www.steelstacks.org and 610-332-3378.

 

On Sept. 16, the Musikfest Cafй welcomes Tapestry: A Carole King Tribute, which faithfully recreates the intimate sound of a Carole King concert including  popular favorites from the artist’s solo career like “Natural Woman”, “It’s Too Late” and “I Feel the Earth Move.”

 

Coming from the alternative rock trio Better than Ezra, Kevin Griffin may be known best for his early hits like “Good,” “In The Blood” and “Desperately Wanting,” but he has since written songs with David Guetta, Taylor Swift, James Blunt, Train, Blondie and Shinedown, among others. Performing since 1988, Griffin serves up a mix of pop, rock and country. He’ll perform at the Musikfest Cafй on Oct. 29.

 

On Dec. 27, escape to a warm tropical island at the annual Holiday Parrot Party, presented by Jimmy Buffet tribute band Jimmy & the Parrots. For more than a dozen years, this New Jersey band has been playing to delighted crowds all over the United States and the Caribbean. The group was named the “Entertainer of the Year” at the Trop Rock Music Awards held in Key West, Fla. in 2012 and 2014. While they mainly stick to beloved hits like “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” the band also has two CDs of original tunes, “Better Than New” and “Back to the Bayou.”

 

Ring in 2017 with the legendary “Siberian Surf Rock” group Igor & the Red Elvises during the annual New Year’s Eve Spectacular Dec. 31 at SteelStacks. This band, perennial favorites at Musikfest, formed in 1995 after Igor Yuzov dreamed that Elvis Presley came to him and told him to start playing rock ‘n’ roll. Since then, the Red Elvises have been touring nonstop while developing a world-wide following.
