Or, swing by the River Music Experience for NYE with Cornmeal and special guest Chicago Farmer for a night of live entertainment and good fun. Our friends at Rhythm City Casino will also have live music, champagne toasts, delicious buffets, and more.

Showcasing both new music and holiday favorites, Jim Brickman brings his On a Winter Night tour to the Adler Theatre on Sunday. The show is sure to bring together the sounds of the season in thanks to lush instrumentals and soaring vocals. Don't forget to grab your tickets for Guys & Dolls while you're there. The romantic, musical comedy comes to town January 21.

Round up the kids and treat them to a program centered on live music and unique stories just for them during Saturday's Kidz Day at RME featuring Lojo Russo. Later that night, spend an evening with the Hot Club of Davenport and bask in the glorious sound of string instruments and drum beats. Tuesday's Redstone Reels feature film is Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Stick around after the show for a discussion and trivia game!

Interested in interstellar arts, crafts, and ceramics? Meet Your Maker at L&D 15 Sunday afternoon when Glenn Boyles beams in to talk about his work as a ceramicist. From rocket ships to robots, this artist talk will cover creature making activities and leave you wondering if UFOs really exist!
