A celebrated singer-song writer, along with America’s favorite
zookeeper, will be helping the Marshall Artists Series continue the celebration
of their 75th anniversary with appearances at the Keith-Albee Performing Arts
Center in early October.
Elvis Costello, known for his quirky lyrics which are full of word plays, instrumentation and vocal styles, will perform with his group, the Imposters, Saturday, Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. He will be followed by Jungle Jack Hanna: Into the Wild Live! Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 7 p.m.
The son of musicians, Costello was exposed to a mix of British and American styles--dance-hall pop, modern jazz and the Beatles--from an early age.
With a career spanning more than 30 years, Elvis Costello is perhaps best known for his performances with the Attractions, the Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. He is also well known for his collaborations with Paul McCartney and the Brodsky Quartet.
Elvis Costello and the Attractions were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. He received the ASCAP’s prestigious Founder’s Award along with numerous Grammy nominations. Costello has been called “the finest songwriter of his generation.”
Back by popular demand, Jungle Jack Hanna and his family-friendly show return for an encore performance bringing his infectious energy and his animal buddies with him. Hanna has made countless television appearances on shows such as Good Morning America, CNN’s Larry King Live, the Ellen DeGeneres Show and the Late Show with David Letterman. He is the star of two nationally syndicated television programs, Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures and most recently Jack Hanna’s: Into the Wild. In its first year Into the Wild won an Emmy for “Outstanding Children’s Series.”
Tickets for both shows are now on sale and may be purchased at the Marshall Artists Series Box Office, located on the east side of the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center, or by calling ext. 6-6656.
