WBTT’s Light Up the Night!
October 9 : 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:30 pm on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until November 22, 2020
WBTT is proud to present an open-air concert series featuring a live band led by Resident Music Director (and bass player) James “Jay” Dodge II, accompanying a variety of popular WBTT artists, in WBTT’s newly created safe, outdoor seating area. Joining Dodge in this first concert of the series will be Todd Bellamy, piano, Jamar Camp, auxiliary keys, Brad Foutch, guitar, and Etienne “EJ” Porter, drums. Raleigh Mosely, Henry Washington and more of WBTT’s favorite singers will belt out soul hits of the 1970s. Selections will include “Superstition,” “Let’s Get It On,” I Want You Back,” “Brick House,” “September” and many, many more. The artists will perform under the awning along the west side of the theater building, while patrons watch from the closest areas of the parking lot. Small tables within painted 6-foot circles – to ensure safe distancing – will accommodate one or two guests at each. There will be temperature checks at the gate and masks will be required unless patrons are actively eating or drinking; no food or drink may be brought in with patrons. Concessions, beer, wine and light snacks will be served prior to the start of the show table side to avoid patrons waiting in line. This leg of the concert series runs Tuesdays through Sundays, October 9 through November 22; show time is 7:30-9 p.m. Tickets, which will be sold in two-week increments to accommodate exchanges for inclement weather, are advance purchase only (no door sales) and are $40/adults, $20/students and active military.
