The movie, A Matter of Faith opens at the Rave 53 Cinema in Davenport on Friday, October 17th. A limited number of tickets are available through the Quad Cities Creation Science Association.

The movie centers on a common problem in our culture where many youth from churches experience a challenge to their faith by professors at colleges that teach evolution as fact.

A Matter of Faith is about a Christian girl, Rachel Whitaker (Jordan Trovillion) who goes off to college for her freshman year. She begins to be influenced by her popular Biology professor (Harry Anderson, star of Classic TV’s Night Court) who teaches that evolution is the answer to the origins of life. When Rachel’s father, Stephen Whitaker (Jay Pickett) senses something changing with his daughter, he begins to examine the situation and what he discovers catches him completely off guard.

There will be five show times each day (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; Oct 17-19):

Bruce Katz is a three-time Blues Music Award nominee for "Piano Player of the Year," and a member of the New York State Blues Hall Of Fame, among numerous other awards.  He was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and from 1996 until 2010 he was on the faculty at the Berklee College of Music in Boston as an associate professor. Playing music, both blues and jazz, has been his thing for many years, and it shows in each of his performances.

In the early '80s Bruce’s first major supporting gig was with Big Mama Thornton; he then worked and toured with Barrence Whitfield & the SavagesBo DiddleyChuck BerryJimmy WitherspoonJohnny Adams, and Tiger Okoshi. Burned out from life on the road, he enrolled at the New England Conservatory, earning a master's degree in Jazz. Five months after graduation, Bruce met Ronnie Earl, who hired him as one of the Broadcasters. Bruce is also known as the dexterous pianist for the Gregg Allman Band.

Bruce has released 6 CDs with a seventh, Homecoming, due for release just after his stop in Bettendorf. He has also appeared on nearly 70 other CDs with the likes of Ronnie Earl, Delbert McClinton, John Hammond, Duke Robillard, Little Milton, Jimmy Witherspoon and many, many others.   Although Homecoming will not be available to the general public, the CD will be offered to those attending the show on October 27.

This event is being presented by The Mississippi Valley Blues Society. The objective of the Society is to educate the general public about the native art form of blues-related music through performance, interpretation and preservation, thus enhancing appreciation and understanding.
