    Buddy Guy & Jonny Lang

    July 21, 2018  8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Union Bank & Trust Pavilion

    Legendary blues guitarist Buddy Guy and next generation guitar superstar Jonny Lang will co-headline at Union Bank & Trust Pavilion on Saturday, July 21. The show starts at 8 p.m., and doors open at 7 p.m.

    At 81, Buddy Guy is a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has seven Grammy Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, 37 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time."

    With a style similar to B.B. King, Buddy Guy is both a popular session player and a successful solo artist. Jimi Hendrix admitted to being profoundly influenced by Guy, while Eric Clapton calls him the greatest blues guitarist ever. In fact, few blues musicians today can match Guy's ability to make a guitar solo the ultimate blues statement.

    At 36 years old Jonny Lang has already had a successful career for two decades. He released his first platinum record at 15, an age when many young people are just beginning to play music. Lang’s talent transcends the crop of blues prodigies.

    No flashy re-hasher of classic blues licks, Lang is a full-blown artist with a style of his own. What began as a bluesy sound influenced by electric guitar pioneers like Albert Collins, B. B. King, and Buddy Guy evolved into a modern R&B style closer to Stevie Wonder and contemporary gospel music.

    THROUGH DARKNESS TO LIGHT: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad

    June 16, 2018 - October 21, 2018  
    Portsmouth Art & Cultural Center

    Books have been written on the subject, but there is very little visual documentation about the Underground Railroad. Photographer Jeanine Michna-Bales took on this challenge and spent more than a decade researching “fugitive” slaves and their path to freedom.  As America becomes more diverse today, Michna-Bales believes that an understanding of the experience – and those who lived through it is more relevant than ever.  Through Darkness to Light: Photographs Along the Underground Railroad presents a photographic journey that shares what the experience would have been like for the millions of slaves who sought their path to freedom.  This exhibition is toured by Exhibits USA.

    92.9 The Wave presents 1964 "The Tribute"

    July 27, 2018  8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Union Bank & Trust Pavilion

    “1964” The Tribute, the global musical journey through music of The Beatles, returns to Union Bank & Trust Pavilion in Portsmouth on Friday, July 27. The show, which features two 45-minute sets with an intermission, starts at 8 p.m., and doors open at 7 p.m.

    “1964” The Tribute has for nearly 25 years performed around the world as what Rolling Stone Magazine has called the “Best Beatles Tribute on Earth.” “1964” The Tribute takes audiences to an era in rock history that will live in all of the hearts of music fans forever. They’re hailed by critics and fans alike as the most authentic and endearing Beatles tribute in the world.

    Choosing songs from the pre-Sgt. Pepper era, “1964” astonishingly recreates an early 60’s live Beatles concert, with period instruments, clothing, hairstyles, and onstage banter. The band has performed almost 3,000 concerts, making it one of the best and tightest live performance on tour.

    The quartet consists of Mark Benson (John Lennon), Mac Ruffing (Paul McCartney), Tom Work (George Harrison) and Bobby Potter (Ringo Starr). The band's mission is to accurately re-create the 1964 Beatles invasion of America. Members play a set of all early-Beatles music, with some middle-Beatles thrown in. Sometimes the group's costumes reflect the Beatles' early period, and sometimes members wear replicas of the Shea Stadium concert apparel from 1965. The concept is performing a show that gives an idea of what it was like to see the Beatles when they were touring.

    “1964” The Tribute is on sale at the Union Bank & Trust Pavilion Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations, charge by phone at 800.745.3000 or purchase online at www.ticketmaster.com.
