Now Playing Onstage in Rhode Island - Week of 2/16/2014 ALTON BROWN LIVE!
Providence Performing Arts Center
2/21-2/21/2014
With his upcoming tour, Alton Brown brings his brand of quirky humor and culinary-science antics to the stage. The two-hour show is a unique blend of stand up comedy, food experimentation, talk show antics, multimedia lecture, and, for the first time...live music. Audience interaction is strictly enforced throughout the evening, though if you're called upon as a culinary assistant you'll definitely want to take the lab coat Brown offers, as things tend to get messy. Brown has worked his weird magic on live audiences across the nation for over a decade but this is the first time he's actually hit the road with a live tour. The entire family will have a blast, especially as you sing along with Brown's soon to be hits "Airport Shrimp Blues" and "TV Cookin Ain't Like No Other Cookin".

Stadium Theatre Performing Arts Centre
2/22-2/22/2014
Formed in 2008 The Great Escape performs the timeless music of Journey with the note for note accuracy and energy all Journey fans come to expect - a Journey experience you don't want to miss. Their live shows have even prompted some to ask if Journey was actually performing. Whether playing in a large scale venue, nightclub or private function, The Great Escape aims to leave their audience energized, entertained and eagerly anticipating their next show. The band has a large dedicated following, adding more and more loyal fans with each performance. The Great Escape was voted Best New England Tribute Band at the 2008 and 2013 Limelight Magazine Awards show! Jason Paulino fronts the band with his powerful vocals, incredible range and enthusiastic energy. When singing the songs of Journey, Jason's vocals are indistinguishable from Journey's Steve Perry - it's an amazing performance every time! Rich Vigdor is the band's lead guitarist. Rich will dazzle any audience with his note-for-note renditions of Journey's familiar guitar riffs and solos. Peter Ferlisi fills a big role with his keyboard and piano playing, a critical piece in so many Journey songs, as well as adding some lead vocals. The backbone of the band is filled by Tony Clement, conducting the band with his power and precision drumming, and the rhythmic bass playing of Bob Wheeler.
