Max Weinberg’s Jukebox (Music)

Tuesday, October 22nd at 8 p.m.

A truly interactive experience with the drummer of Bruce Springsteen’s E St. Band! Max Weinberg invites the audience to create the set list, in real time, that he and his crack four piece group will play. Performing songs from the glory days of rock and roll, the audience chooses from a video menu of over 200 songs – everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band’s biggest hits – and hear the group play ‘em the way they want to hear them played!

Regular Tickets $75

The Cowboy Junkies (Music)

Saturday, October 26th at 8 p.m.

Anyone who has followed Cowboy Junkies’ three decade-long journey knows the band has always traveled its own path. In 1988, they proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise – and it was compelling. With their new album, All That Reckoning, the band once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. It also may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.

Regular Tickets $70

Ted Barris (Author)

Tuesday, October 29th at 7 p.m.

Rush to Danger: Medics in the Line of Fire All

Noted military historian Ted Barris explores his father’s wartime experiences as a medic leading up to the Battle of the Bulge in 1944- 45, and weaves into his narrative stories about the life-and-death struggles of military medical personnel during a century of service. Barris’s sources reveal – like never before – why men and women sporting the red cross on their helmets or sleeves didn’t flee to safety but chose instead to rush to assist.

Tickets $30
