The Original Night People 50th Draught House Reunion

Col Ballroom

Saturday, October 10, 6 p.m.

 

On October 10, Davenport’s Col Ballroom will host a special concert event officially titled “The Original Night People 50th Draught House Reunion.” And local music fans will surely know the Night People, at least by reputation – and especially if they’re also local-music (with the hyphen) fans.

Javier ColonMusic

Javier Colon

Galvin Fine Arts Center

Friday, September 18, 8 p.m.

 

Back in the day – by which I mean a couple decades ago – friends and I would frequent karaoke nights and challenge one another to perform randomly picked songs. On one of those nights, I wound up faced with the challenge of singing Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time,” which I (and the pour souls listening) mercifully survived. Consequently, I feel a true kinship with performer Javier Colon, who, in April of 2011, crooned the same Lauper hit on the debut episode of TV’s The Voice.

Of course, Colon sang it better than I did ... and for a few million people as opposed to a few dozen ... and I don’t recall getting $100,000 and a recording contract for my efforts ... .

Celtic Woman -- October 17Events

Adler Theatre

October and November

 

“Mademoiselles, messieurs: It is with deepest pride, and greatest pleasure, that we welcome you tonight. And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up some chairs, as the Adler Theatre proudly presents – your autumn!” Okay, so that may not be the official greeting at the Davenport venue these days. But the Adler could do worse than steal from the candlestick Lumiere’s “Be Our Guest” intro, considering how many fall events the theatre will be proudly presenting – among them the touring production of the Tony-winning fairytale musical Beauty & the Beast (November 3).

Still StandingMusic

Still Standing & Friends Benefit Concert

River Music Experience

Saturday, August 22, 1:30 – 9:15 p.m.

 

“When we started this band,” says Still Standing co-founder/guitarist Justin Young, “we decided that we didn’t want to just make music that we love. We also wanted to reach out and make a positive impact on our community.” On August 22, Young and his bandmates will be doing just that, and have recruited some friends to help. Actually, many, many, many friends.
