Black Jacket Symphony to Perform The Grateful Dead’s ‘American Beauty’ at Bama Theatre in Tuscaloosa Friday, September 15, 2017
The Black Jacket Symphony returns to T-Town September 15, 2017, and this time they're taking on the music of the Grateful Dead. They'll be playing the iconic album American Beauty, note-for-note. The all-ages show is set for 8 p.m. with doors to open at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $25 to $30 and can be purchased HERE.
Here's more info on the show from the official TicketFly listing:
The Black Jacket Symphony offers a unique concert experience through recreating classic albums in a live performance setting. A selected album is performed in its entirety by a group of handpicked musicians specifically selected for each album, with no sonic detail being overlooked--the musicians do whatever it takes to musically reproduce the album.
The performance is separated into two sets. The first set features the album being recreated as a true symphonic piece. The second set, which features a selection of the album artist's "greatest hits," opens in full contrast to the first set with an incredible light display and the symphony being much more laid back. The tone is set very quickly that the show will feature the high level of musicianship of the act being covered and will also be accompanied by all the bells and whistles of a major rock and roll show.
