  • 11/18 – ROEBUCK & Sean K Preston at The Historic Masonic Theatre

    ROEBUCK: The Band Special guest, Sean K Preston After years of honing his abilities busking in NYC and on the road and two powerful shows in the Masonic Theatre and Amphitheatre, Phillip Roebuck (who was known for his raucous one-man band setup and lightning fast playing) has recently found musical success by teaming up with his wife Phoenix, on upright bass. Wielding a resonator guitar and a two-piece stomp board with Phoenix Roebuck adding backing vocals and low end, Phillip’s songwriting truly shines! ROEBUCK’s music is full of swamp blues, jump blues, hollers & stomps, shanties, ballads & breakdowns, and of course tearjerkers. The music of special guest Sean K Preston draws heavily on the influences of the classic heartbroken sounds of Country & Western music from the 40’s through the 70’s, the honesty of the Blues by the likes of Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker, the bombast of 50’s Rock’n’Roll, the lyrical sophistication of musical poets like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, the raw energy of Punk and the spirituality of Mountain Gospel. His own songs range from delicate laments and lullabies to fiery sermons and confessions. In the John E. Hillert Auditorium Saturday, November 18 at 7:30 pm Tickets: Main Orch: $20; Rear Orch/Front Balc: $17; Rear Balc: $15; Boxes: $30 • http://www.historicmasonictheatre.com

  • 12/03 – Last Illusion: The Premiere Tribute to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra at The Historic Masonic Theatre

    Last Illusion: The Premiere Tribute to The Trans-Siberian Orchestra Several years in the making, Last Illusion was formed with one sole purpose…to become the premier musical tribute to The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, whose founder, Paul O’Neill died in April of this year. O’Neill explained the influences that led to his vision for Trans-Siberian Orchestra in an interview with The Morning Call last year. “[Effects-heavy concert production] was always part of the vision for Trans-Siberian Orchestra, [and] the mixing classical with rock, which I obviously got from bands like Emerson, Lake and Palmer,” he said. “The rock-opera aspect, which I love because it gives a third dimension, which I plagiarized from The Who.” Last Illusion channels O’Neill’s original vision, and the result is a remarkable production that leaves audiences amazed. The magic of Christmas, the magic of TSO…the magic of Last Illusion. Experience the magic for yourself. In the John E.
