A three-time Grammy nominee and winner of 1996's CMA County Music Video of the Year Award, Junior Brown will share with Redstone Room audiences the signature country-Western talents that led Rolling Stone to place the artist's 12 Shades of Brown on its 2015 list of “50 Country Albums Every Rock Fan Should Own.”

What do composer Cole Porter, chart-topping singer/songwriter Jonathan Coulton, and President George W. Bush's grandfather have in common? They were all members of Yale University's esteemed a cappella ensemble the Whiffenpoofs, whose 2017 iteration performs locally on October 8.

An acclaimed beatboxing string trio revered for its unique sound and upbeat performance style, the musicians of Infinitus perform two local concerts as Quad City Arts Visiting Artists, sharing the talents that led the Vancouver Sun to write, “It's amazing the musical concoctions these three award-winning musicians can cook up with just a violin, viola, cello, and some vocalizations.”

One of the most amply rewarded performers in recent county-music history brings his “All-American Road Show” to Moline in a concert showcasing the 2016 winner of two Grammys, two Country Music Association Awards, two ASCAP Country Music Awards, and five Academy of Country Music Awards.

For its October 5 RME Member Appreciation Show, Davenport's River Music Experience will host both a concert and a movie, as musician Dan Tedesco will precede his alt-folk and -rock set with a screening of Chasing the Lightning, the new documentary that follows the singer/songwriter through many months of touring performances.

For the first performances in its 2017-18 Masterworks season, the Quad City Symphony Orchestra will take concertgoers on an aural trip to France under the direction of conductor Mark Russell Smith, complete with solos by a pair of international touring stars: soprano Elena Perroni and tenor Daniel Montenegro.

Appearing as the headliner in her first Moeller Nights concert, singer/songwriter/guitarist Moen performs in support of her LP debut That's All I Wanted, released this past May.

After thirty years in the game, one might imagine Melvins would slow down, burn out, or fade away. Having pioneered the grunge rock and sludge metal styles of the early nineties, and inspiring a wide-eyed young Kurt Cobain and his contemporaries to follow in their footsteps, the Washington-based trio (sometimes quartet) led by guitarist/singer Buzz Osbourne and drummer Dale Crover still show no signs of fatigue in 2017.

A two-time winner of the Nashville Scene's citation for “Best Local Album,” the latest visiting artist in the Moeller Nights series will perform highlights from the pop singer/songwriter's 10-year professional repertoire.

Playing their distinct blend of funk rock, reggae, surf rock, disco, and traditional Russian stylings, Igor & the Red Elvises makes a return appearance at RIBCO – the latest tour stop in the Los Angeles-based band's twenty-third year of performance.
