EMERY HENDERSON & FRIENDS

Thursday, July 6 • 7:30PMTickets $18/$20
She's an original Dan Kane kid and has been part of the Majestic Children's Theater, Home for the Holidays, mainstage shows Next to Normal and One Slight Hitch — and when Emery sings, well, your jaw just drops. While she's off to college in the fall (the prestigious Boston Conservatory, we think!), for one magical night she'll be joined by mentors Freddie Marion and Montenia Shider as well as friends from our Children's Theater.

JOE CANATA & THE MEMORIES

Friday, July 7 • 8:00PMTickets $21/$23
The Memories were a summer tradition at the Majestic for years — that is, until Joe moved to Florida! But guess what? They're back for a very special reunion concert performing our favorite doo-wop hits from the 50s and 60s. The songs are memorable, the vocals are great, and Joe regales us with the amazing stories and history behind the music.

RUSSELL BROOKS:
MOODY BLUES TRIBUTE

Saturday, July 8 • 8:00PMTickets $24/$26
Russell Brooks and his band return again for one night only — with a tribute to The Moody Blues. The show features songs like the elegant "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin", along with the ever-popular "Hooked on a Feeling", "Your Wildest Dreams", and many others, all captured by Russell's spot-on renditions. Blue is the color of this great evening!

THE DRIFTWOODS:
BEACH BOYS TRIBUTE

Thursday, July 13 • 7:30PMTickets $24/$26
The Driftwoods are back again with a tribute to the Beach Boys! After all, what would summer be without them? Break out your sandals and baggy shorts, wax up that surfboard, and catch a wave with the always-popular Driftwoods as they capture the signature harmonies and sounds of this iconic California band.

JIMMY MAZZ:
A LITTLE COUNTRY
& A BIT OF ROCK

Friday, July 14 • 8:00PMTickets $24/$26
Jimmy's an Atlantic City headliner who combines high energy, genuine warmth, and vibrant vocals to all of his shows. Nashville recording artist Dee Reilly joins Jimmy for this new concert — together, they'll cover the likes of Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash on the country side of things, as well as rock icons Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, and the Beatles. Dee will be sure to add in a couple of Irish ballads, and Jimmy, known for a surprise or two, is sure to have something up his sleeve!

STUDIO TWO:
THE EARLY BEATLES

Saturday, July 15 • 8:00PMTickets $24/$26
Unlike other Beatles tribute acts, Studio Two concentrates on the most exciting and fun time in the Fab Four's career: the club and touring years, when fans actually saw them play live. Think of Liverpool's Cavern Club, or the Indra and Kaiserkeller in Hamburg, where songs like "I Wanna Hold Your Hand", "I Saw Her Standing There", and "She Loves You" were born. You'll be dancing in your seat!

CENTER STAGE MOTOWN REVIEW

Thursday, July 20 • 7:30PMTickets $24/$26
Center Stage Motown Review frontmen Darryl Carter, Donald McCall, and Irving Lewis have awed audiences across the country — including at the Majestic last year — with all of the style, flair, and exuberance that only a Motown show can provide. There'll be songs from The Temptations, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson, The Spinners, The O'Jays, and a whole lot more!

THE CORVETTES

Friday, July 21 • 8:00PM
Saturday, July 22 • 8:00PM Tickets $24/$26
This night to remember sold out last year, and now they're back! It's a rollicking ride through the good old days of rock 'n' roll, with hits galore like "Come Go With Me", "At The Hop", "Earth Angel", "Runaround Sue", "Sea Cruise", "Shake, Rattle, and Roll", and many others, all performed with a fresh new energy and comedic stage antics tossed in for good measure.

SEAT OF OUR PANTS

Thursday, July 27 • 7:30PMTickets $21/$23
This band took last summer's Talent Night by storm, so we wanted them back for a full night! Don't let the name fool you, though — Seat Of Our Pants has been playing their own brand of acoustic folk rock for the past six years. Humble beginnings and word-of-mouth accolades have propelled them to venues throughout Connecticut and beyond. Their shows feature covers of current and not-so-current tunes, all accompanied by a unique arrangement of acoustic instuments you don't see every day.

MAJESTIC CHILDREN'S THEATER

JULY & AUGUST Tickets $9.50
Introduce your children to the magic of theater with the Majestic Children's Theater — three plays designed for our youngest audiences:

Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Disney's Sleeping Beauty KIDS
Visit the Majestic Children's Theater main page for dates, times, and play descriptions.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET
ENCORE!

JUNE 14–25 12 PERFORMANCES ONLY
Our fall production of Million Dollar Quartet sold out and had standing ovations at every performance! In fact, we couldn't meet the demand for tickets — so, we're bringing it back for a special encore run. It's so nice, we want you to see it twice!

Some might just call it "serendipity" — most everyone else would say it was rock 'n' roll history in the making. On December 4, 1956, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash found themselves in Sam Phillips's Sun Records studio in Memphis. Initially, Carl Perkins was there to record a revamped version of the blues song "Matchbox", but what resulted was a casual, spur-of-the-moment jam session which Phillips had the foresight to record. A local reporter who sat in on the jam session headlined his article the next day Million Dollar Quartet. This high-energy musical relives that day with all the classic rock 'n' roll you love!

IMPROVISATIONAL COMEDY
with the MAJESTERS

WEDNESDAYS at 7:30PM General Admission $7
Improv with the Majesters is the new Wednesday night tradition during Majestic summers! Our own troupe of improvisational comics take suggestions and inspiration from the audience each night to create hilarious scenes and songs on the spot. It's a fun evening full of surprise and antic comedy!

Every Wednesday is a brand new experience, so come back week after week for a new show each time!

July 12, 19, 26; August 2, 9, 16, 23
Come as you are and sit where you like — no reservation required!

THE MAJESTICS

Friday, July 28 • 8:00PMTickets $24/$26
The Majestics formed in 1998 after performing in "The Buddy Holly Story" here at the Majestic. Ben Ashley, Aaron Porchelli, Don Rovero, Tim Hosmer and Joe Pereira played classic hits for 10 years, and now after an 8 year break they are getting back together again for another night of great music and fun! Get your tickets now before they're gone.

BRIAN McCULLOUGH:
ROY ORBISON TRIBUTE

Saturday, July 29 • 2:00/8:00PMTickets $24/$26
Once again, Brian McCullough journeys from his home base in South Carolina back to his Western Mass roots with his extraordinary musical homage to the late, and so great, Roy Orbison. Joey Pucci and The American Longboards open this spectacular show. **Now with an added matinee!**

DONNA LEE:
PATSY CLINE TRIBUTE

Thursday, August 3 • 7:30PMTickets $20/$22
Donna Lee and her band Landslide return to the Majestic stage with their special tribute to the incomparable Patsy Cline. The show features songs from the Patsy catalog like "Crazy", "I Fall To Pieces", "She's Got You", and many others. It's one of our very favorite shows here and we are very pleased to have them back — you will be, too!

7 BRIDGES ROAD:
EAGLES TRIBUTE

Friday, August 4 • 8:00PM
Saturday, August 5 • 8:00PMTickets $24/$26
So popular, we've booked them for two nights! Come see some of the Valley's most experienced musicians and singers in a show featuring selections from The Eagles' most-loved recordings. Tight harmonies, beautiful musical arrangements, and story notes take on new significance with the 2016 loss of Eagles founding member Glenn Frey.

A RAY OF ELVIS

Thursday, August 10 • 7:30PM
Friday, August 11 • 8:00PM
Saturday, August 12 • 8:00PMTickets $24/$26
It's not summer here at the Majestic without Ray Guillemette, Jr. and the Memphis Jam bringing their award-winning ultimate tribute to the King of Rock 'N' Roll. Elvis Presley's impact was worldwide, his songs legendary, and Ray has been acknowledged as one of the top Elvis tribute artists in the nation. There's a reason why Ray has die-hard fans — come find out!

GOOD ACOUSTICS:
SIMON & GARFUNKEL
and JAMES TAYLOR TRIBUTE

Thursday, August 17 • 7:30PMTickets $24/$26
Good Acoustics, featuring Mike Smith, Dave Fazio, and Bill DeSanty, have been performing all over the East Coast for three decades, and they're well known for their strong vocals and tight harmonies. It has been 45 years since Simon and Garfunkel first split, and it motivated Mike and Dave to pursue their passion of paying tribute to them.

Kenny LaBelle's tribute to Neil Diamond has been a summer tradition here for 15 unbelievable years!
