Blood, Sweat and Tears to appear at Keith-Albee Dec. 3

BoBice_BloodSweatandTearsA three-time GRAMMY Award winner, Blood, Sweat and Tears, accompanied by a 40-piece orchestra, will make its way into the Keith-Albee Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at 7:30 p.m. as part of the Marshall Artists Series. Former American Idol runner-up Bo Bice will be bringing his diverse vocal abilities to this jazz-rock group.

The band will reprise some of their greatest hits such as “You’ve Made Me So Very Happy,” “Spinning Wheel,” “And When I Die,” and “Got To Get You Into My Life.” With sales in the millions, BS&T has earned multiple gold albums and 10 GRAMMY nominations.

Bo Bice knew from a very early age growing up in Helena, Ala.,  that he wanted to become a musician. In the early years of his career he released two solo albums and was part of a small band.  Eventually, Bice found his way to Season 4 of the television series “American Idol.”  Bringing his southern roots to the Hollywood stage, he battled his way through contestants all the way to the finals, where he eventually fell to current country superstar Carrie Underwood.

To bring in the holiday spirit even more, the Marshall Artists Series will be putting on a canned food drive for the Cridlin Food Pantry. Patrons can help feed hungry Tri-State families this holiday by bringing any non-perishable food items to the donation bin inside the Keith-Albee…  Items needed include: Beef Stew, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Chili, Mac & Cheese, Tuna, Ravioli, Chicken Noodle, Tomato & Vegetable Soups, Cereal, and spaghetti and sauce.

Every month the Cridlin Food Pantry collects a certain canned food item throughout the week given by its members.  The food pantry helps not only the homeless, but also helps neighbors, coworkers, children and the elderly.

Food items may be brought to the Keith-Albee on the day of the show beginning at 6:30 p.m.

For ticket information, contact the Artists Series Box Office at ext. 6-6656 or visit the box office located in the Joan C. Edwards Performing Arts Center, which is open Monday through Friday  from noon to 5 p.m.
