                                                            ’56 Thursday, Nov. 2 Then: ’56 was a year that featured Coup de Villes and drive-in movies, Ed Sullivan and Milton Berle in your living room once a week, Mickey Mantle leading the Yankees to the pennant and Grace Kelly leaving Hollywood’s silver screen to become a Princess. Elvis had four top 10 hits that year, alongside Dean Martin and The Platters, and then became a movie star – all in 1956. Now: ’56 features four amazing musicians, individually accomplished in other genres, who came together and asked this question: What if all those legends from Sun Records and the Louisiana Hayride never went to Hollywood, never made television shows and movies, but were still playing today? ’56 is the answer. So, put your glad-rags on and grab your best gal or guy, and get ready to rock!

                                                            SuperHuey Friday, Nov. 3 The ultimate Huey Lewis experience – SuperHuey, a Huey Lewis and the News tribute band, is the only show of its kind anywhere in the nation. With their super high-energy faithful renditions of feel-good music that defined a generation, SuperHuey is a seven-piece explosion of 1980s rock power who have performed across the United States. Huey Lewis and the News have carried the banner as the quintessential American rock band – endeared by millions of fans and earning them the right to mark their place in pop music history. With a nearly unbroken string of hit songs, their music became the soundtrack for a generation. During the 1980s and early ’90s they scored a total of 19 top-10 singles across the Billboard Hot 100, adult contemporary and mainstream rock charts. Grab your 501 jeans, Ray-Bans, linen sport coat and skinny tie because you’re goin’ back in time with SuperHuey!
