Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012, 7 p.m. — The Abrams Brothers

Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012, 2:30 p.m. — 42Five
What’s an instrumental band with no instruments? It’s not “magic” or “make believe.” It’s simply the voices of five guys: Ryan, Earl, Geoff, Danny and Layne — known better as 42Five.
From the trumpet to the drums, you’ll hear it all from their voices without a glimpse of shiny brass or drumsticks scattered on the floor. Not only do they melt audiences with their flawless harmonies, their charming sense of humor is sure to create a stir in the hearts of everyone.
Friday, Nov. 30, 2012, 7 p.m. — Prima Trio
Grand Prize and Gold Medal Winners of the Prestigious Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, the Prima Trio distinguishes itself not only with the remarkable playing, but through the repertoire it performs.

Prima Trio’s repertoire ranges from beloved chamber music standards to exotic gems.
Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, 7 p.m. — Masters of Motown

They become Stevie Wonder, Four Tops, Diana Ross and the Supremes, and even the Jackson Five.
Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, 7 p.m. — Legacy of Floyd Cramer

The Legacy of Floyd Cramer highlights the songs that featured Floyd on the original recordings or were Floyd’s own self-penned hits. With these exciting and nostalgic performances, Jason Coleman is ensuring the “legacy continues.”
