Circa: 61 Circus Acts in 60 Minutes

Englert Theatre

The Redstone Room

Thursday, April 28, 8 p.m.

 

Acclaimed blues vocalist Janiva Magness performs at Davenport’s Redstone Room on April 28, and included among the performer’s many song titles are “Don’t Do It,” “That’s No Way to Get Along,” “Eat the Lunch You Brought,” and “I Give Up.” All things that our publisher, Todd, tells us at weekly staff meetings, but the words sound much nicer when Magness sings them.
