BEAVER FALLS — Three tribute bands and some country-rock favorites compose the 2019-20 Beaver Valley Community Concert Association season.
The four concerts, all starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Beaver Falls Middle School Auditorium:
• Savannah Jack, Oct. 15.
• Salute to Glenn Campbell with Jeff Dayton, Nov. 5.
• Shades of Bublé, a three-man tribute to Michael Bublé, April 6.
• Sail On: The Beach Boys Tribute, May 7.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for students at the door.
For $50, you can get a season pass to all four shows.
For tickets, contact Peg Denhart, membership chairwoman, at 724-843-2941, or send a check, payable to the Beaver Valley Community Concert Association, attention Denhart, at 604 Sixth Ave., Beaver Falls, PA 15010.
Savannah Jack, of Nashville, is fronted by Blackhawk High School graduate Don Gatlin, a Beaver Valley Musicians Hall of Fame inductee. The group drew sizable crowds at a string of annual shows at the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center in Midland. Savannah Jack has headlined a Royal Caribbean Cruise and opened arena shows and large festival dates for Peter Frampton, John Fogerty, Vince Gill, the Doobie Brothers, Lady Antebellum and Kenny Rogers.
Dayton, the November act, was Glen Campbell’s right-hand man, bandleader and guitarist for 15 years. Together, they toured the world, played all 50 states and appeared on “The Today Show” and Campbell’s PBS-TV special with the South Dakota Orchestra.
Shades of Bublé also have headlined Royal Caribbean cruises, playing a show that honors but doesn’t imitate multiple Grammy Award-winning recording artist Michael Bublé while adding the three-part harmony sound of vocal groups from the 1950s and ’60s.
Sail On: The Beach Boys tribute band is from Nashville and includes guitarist-keyboardist-vocalist Jason Brewer, who worked with the Beach Boys and the band’s Brian Wilson.
