Alhambra After Dark Sets 2016 Series

After a successful first season of Alhambra After Dark concerts and tribute acts in 2015, The Alhambra Theatre & Dining is launching its 2016 Alhambra After Dark music series with a more diverse slate and promising more shows (along with some of those that proved popular last year). In 2014 The Alhambra launched a branded series of non-theatrical programs called Alhambra After Dark so it could offer slightly more diverse fare from its traditional show schedule. Alhambra After Dark (AAD) has ranged from concerts to comedians and trivia nights to one-person shows, but it has set its biggest footprint to date on the nationally-burgeoning genre of musical tribute acts.

Kicking off the 2016 series, to celebrate an entire week of Valentine's Day, will be Kevin Mills as Elvis Presley in a new show called, "Can't Help Falling In Love: A Tribute to Elvis." Mills drew popular and critical acclaim at the Alhambra in 2014 and 2015, and returns as requested by the Alhambra faithful. Kevin was a 2010 finalist at the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contents in Memphis. His success reflects not only his accomplishments and beliefs, but also an incredible love for live and entertaining. "Can't Help Falling In Love: A Tribute to Elvis" will run from February 10-14.

On Monday, February 15, The Amazing Kreskin will make his Alhambra debut. In 2013, three days before the Super Bowl, Kreskin predicted on FOX television the results naming the winning team (the Baltimore Ravens) as well as the game's winning score (34). For some six decades Kreskin has dramatized the unique facets of the human mind. His name has become an integral part of pop culture invoked in comedy clubs, comic strips, print stories, and TV shows from sitcoms on through the national media, and now the Alhambra.

Ted Vigil will return to the Alhambra as his later ego, John Denver. Vigil sold out his one night stand at The Alhambra in 2015, and is eager to make his return. Said Alhambra Managing Partner, Craig Smith, "Of all the tribute acts we've had, Ted most closely resembles and sounds like his counterpart." Vigil will play February 29.

James Rogers will bring his unique brand of Americana to the Alhambra on March 13. Rogers' "This is America" show has done well both times at the Alhambra. "It's hard to summarize James' show better than in his bio," said Smith. "He's as patriotic as old glory. The lyrics of his songs strike a powerful longing in our hearts for the days when things were simpler and all Americans stood strong, proud and together. His music sets us free to dream; knowing that dreams can come true as long as you believe."


Added Smith, "This is just the beginning of the Alhambra After Dark schedule. We have quite a few tricks up our sleeves and we're just waiting for the ink to dry o the contracts. We wanted to get the first part of the schedule out to the public so they can book their seats now. These have been successful shows for us, and we're sure they will be again." "Besides," said Smith, "The Amazing Kreskin predicted he'll sell out, so why wait?"

Doors open at 6:00 PM and dinner will be served until 7:30 PM. Group sales are available. Call the box office at 904.641.1212 or www.alhambrajax.com.
