Tom Paxton & Janis Ian - “Together at Last”
Wednesday, March 4, 2015 @ 7:30 pm
tickets

Two of America’s greatest songwriters share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Each with ties to the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs. But he also wrote songs about love, humour and for kids. Many became oft-covered standards, including ‘Bottle of Wine’, ‘Ramblin’ Boy’ and ‘The Last Thing on My Mind’. At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative ‘Society’s Child’, a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-‘70s with her biggest hit the reflective ‘At Seventeen’, which won a Grammy Award. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.

Jorma Kaukonen with Barry Mitterhoff
Saturday March 7, 2015 @ 8 pm

tickets

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Grammy Award nominee, and founding member of two legendary rock bands, Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen has forged his own legacy in American music.

In a career that has spanned a half-century, Jorma has been one of the most highly respected interpreters of American roots music, blues, and Americana, and at the forefront of popular rock-and-roll. Jorma’s repertoire goes far beyond his involvement creating rock music; he is a legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters of our time.

Jorma started out as a devotee of rock-and-roll of the Buddy Holly era but also developed a love for the blues and bluegrass along the way. When he met guitar player Jack Casady they could not have known that they were beginning a musical partnership that has continued for over 50 years. Jorma met Paul Kantner in California and joined Jefferson Airplane just as it was getting off the ground. Jorma invited his old musical partner Jack Casady to play electric bass with this group and together they created much of Jefferson Airplane’s signature sound performing at the three most famous American rock festivals of the 60s—Monterey (1967), Woodstock (1969) and Altamont (1969).

Jorma and Jack would jam whenever they could and would sometimes perform sets within sets at Jefferson Airplane concerts, often playing at clubs after the performances. Making a name for themselves as a duo, they struck a record deal, and Hot Tuna was born. Hot Tuna has performed thousands of concerts over nearly four decades and released more than two-dozen records.

In addition to his work with Hot Tuna, Jorma has recorded more than a dozen solo albums beginning with 1974’s Quah and continuing with his recent acoustic releases — 2007’s Stars in My Crown and River of Time, produced by Larry Campbell and featuring Levon Helm.

King, Buddy Guy, the Dixie Chicks, Joe Cocker, and Robert Palmer, and his playing inspired leading instrument maker Gibson Brands to issue the Keb’ Mo’ Signature Bluesmaster acoustic guitar.

The Second City - 50 Years of Funny
Friday, May 15, 2015 @ 8 pm
tickets

The most influential and prolific comedy theatre troupe in the world comes to SOPAC and South Orange, New Jersey for a one-night only performance!

The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959. At the time, no one could have guessed what a legend this small cabaret theatre would become. With its roots in the improvisational games of Viola Spolin, The Second City developed an entirely unique way of creating and performing comedy. Founded by Spolin’s son, Paul Sills, along with Howard Alk, and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City was experimental and unconventional in its approach to both theatre and comedy. At a time when mother-in-law jokes were more the fashion, The Second City railed against the conformist culture with scenes that spoke to a younger generation.

The Broadway success of Mike Nichols and Elaine May drew attention to the fledgling company at the start. Soon, alumni of The Second City such as Alan Arkin, Barbara Harris, Robert Klein, David Steinberg, and Fred Willard began to cement the theatre’s reputation for developing the finest comedic voices of each and every generation.

With the debut of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, populated by The Second City Alums John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, and Gilda Radner, the theatre became internationally known for its ever-increasing roster of comedy superstars. Soon, The Second City’s sister-theatre in Canada developed its own sketch comedy series, SCTV, hailed as one of the greatest comedy series of all time and featuring an all-star cast that included Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, John Candy, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty, and Rick Moranis. The Second City continues to produce the premiere comic talent in the industry today. From Mike Myers to Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey – The Second City imprint is felt across every entertainment medium.

Tom Paxton & Janis Ian - "Together At Last"
Thursday, March 5, 2015 @ 8pm
tickets

Two of Americas greatest songwriters share the stage for an evening of stories and songs. Each with ties to the classic Greenwich Village folk scene, Tom Paxton and Janis Ian are nearly a generation apart yet share a slew of folk influences as well as an affinity for fearlessly tackling controversial issues. Paxton emerged in the days of hootenannies and wrote his share of what were then called protest songs. But he also wrote songs about love, humour and for kids. Many became oft-covered standards, including ‘Bottle of Wine’, ‘Ramblin’ Boy’ and ‘The Last Thing on My Mind’. At 15, Ian had a major pop hit with the then-provocative ‘Society’s Child’, a taboo-busting meditation about an interracial romance. She re-emerged a decade later in the mid-‘70s with her biggest hit the reflective ‘At Seventeen’, which won a GRAMMY. She remains an unflinching topical commentator.
