Bumper Jacksons Concert & Dance

BUMPER JACKSONS CONCERT & DANCE

Monday, October 23 7 p.m.
Doors @ 6 for Members; 6:15 General Admission

Advance Tickets:  TLCA Members $22; Non-Members $26
Day of Show Tickets:  TLCA Members $24; Non-Members $28

Bumper Jacksons are hot and sweet, painting America’s story from the streets of New Orleans to Appalachian hollers. Unafraid to scrap together new sounds from forgotten 78′s, the Bumper Jacksons elegantly balance paying homage to the traditions while fashioning their own unique, playful style.

The group began as a duo, a city-meets-country experiment between songstress Jess Eliot Myhre and banjo player Chris Ousley.  They hopped on bicycles,  touring the country, instruments on their backs, seeking to reimagine roots music.  In five short years, Bumper Jacksons grew to a brassy seven-piece, with horns and pedal steel.  They’ve been honored multiple times as the Mid-Atlantic’s “Artist of the Year” & “Best Traditional Band” at the Washington Area Music Awards.

Bursting at the seams with some of the richest threads of old America, Bumper Jacksons bring you into the center of a party where everyone’s invited and the dance floor never sleeps.

A Captivating Theatrical Experience with Acclaimed British Actor
David Payne

The year is 1963 and CS Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. Seated in his living room and in front of a warm fire Lewis recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; of his friendship with J R R Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.

Described by critics as ‘Extraordinary!’ ‘A Must See!’ ‘A Master Class!’ An Evening with CS Lewis has proved again and again to be an enthralling theatrical experience and one which has led many thousands to discover (or rediscover) the continuing impact of a man who died over 50 years ago and whose collected works made him one of the literary giants of the 20th Century.

Cirque Italia

GET READY COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, BECAUSE IT’S TIME TO BE AMAZED! CIRQUE ITALIA IS COMING WITH A BRAND NEW SHOW AND TONS OF EXCITEMENT!

Cirque Italia is a unique show in every sense. After five years of consolidation, a rigorous casting selection, and over 1,000 performances nationwide; this spectacular production has become the greatest version of a “traveling circus”. Cirque Italia is proud to have developed a well-deserved reputation as one of the most innovative shows to be staged in the US.   

Conceived by Mr. Manuel Rebecchi, and meticulously directed and produced by Chanté DeMoustes, Cirque Italia is a creative mix of the best elements of entertainment and technology. A “never-seen-before” production that combines acrobatics, dance, contortion, and even high-performance BMX and roller-skating. All performances are done in ways that push the physical boundaries of human abilities, which leaves audiences amazed and astonished.

Performers from all over the world are united under the magic spiral of the white and blue big top. They merge their extraordinary selection of skills and put together a stimulating spin on the industry by embracing the element of water. Cirque Italia has managed to find a delicate balance between the poetic and expressive power of the human body and the versatility and fluidity of water as an artistic scenario.

With a magnetism that draws you into your deepest fantasies, the water circus offers two hours of high-end entertainment. Mermaids and dinosaurs make dreamy appearances while awakening the inner child within you. Laser lights and bubbles act as interdimensional movers. Aerialists, acrobats, and contortionists take the human body to the next level – one you never thought possible!

You may think that such a sophisticated production is out of your budget, but Cirque Italia is committed to bringing Las Vegas to your own hometown. They bring an experience and make it not only memorable, but affordable with very competitive prices and special offers.

Cirque Italia also contributes to the modernization of the performing arts and the circus industry by abiding by a strict animal free policy. The company takes a leading stance in offering quality entertainment beyond the use of animals.

For more information visit www.cirqueitalia.com and make sure to check all our social media accounts. Tickets can be purchased now starting at $10.00-$50.00 depending on availability.  Cirque Italia offers one free child admission with every full priced paying adult ticket in levels 2 or 3.
