Wainwright Encore Entertainment Society Presents

Our 2018-2019 Season

 

JOHNNY SUMMERS LITTLE BIG BAND                        October 12th and 13th

Award winning vocalist, trumpeter, composer, Johnny Summers presents jazz, blues, soul, funk and New Orleans music in a fun and accessible way.  Drawing from classic Sinatra, soul (from mo-town to modern), pop culture (movie themes, pop tunes) and classic American songbook, Summers presents a concert within the jazz idiom that creates an exceptional experience to an audience of all ages.

SIX MINUTE WARNING                                           November 16th and 17th

6 Minute Warning is a Canadian ‘a cappella’  group consisting of six members with extensive backgrounds in rock, pop, jazz, classical, and choral music. 6 Minute Warning is renowned for its tight harmonies, seamless phrasing, thrilling lead-solos, and intricate beat-boxing.  Creating a soundscape with their voices, they inspire audiences with a repertoire that ranges from the upbeat stylings of rock and pop
music to the complex nuances of jazz, drawing influence from Boyz II Men,
Take 6, Michael Jackson and many others.

RED MOON ROAD                                                           January 11th and 12th

Red Moon Road presents an impressive well-choreographed show, bordering on spectacle. The trio incorporates impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split entertainingly but pragmatically between two band members and an acoustic guitar rigged to also be a bass. A moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ, and subtle technological wizardry whirls as the unmistakable soulful voice of one of Canada’s premiere songstresses floats above it all. Red Moon Road is a tapestry of song, masterful storytelling and spontaneous repartee woven seamlessly into something truly exceptional.

DONNY LEE                                                                         February 8th and 9th

 Donny Lee has been sharpening his stage show at Nashville’s Honky Tonk Central and Tootsie’s World Famous Orchid Lounge.  Donny Lee hosts a fun and lively shoot-from-the-hip performance selected from his repertoire of over 400 country music songs.

6 GUITARS starring CHASE PADGETT                 March 15th  and 16th

 6 Guitars is a pitch blend of music, comedy and characters. A single performer portrays 6 different guitar-playing characters each sharing their own style of music. Audiences are treated to great songs from each genre that showcase breathtaking musicianship. This sonic feat is done not merely with just one performer but just one guitar as well.  Each character, from the young rock prodigy to the weary blues picker, shares hilarious anecdotes that only a life playing music can give.
