The Arts Center of Coastal Carolina is bringing two distinctive concerts to the stage in August, with tributes to the Bee Gees (Aug 7-9) and Motown (Aug 29-30)! You won’t want to miss either one!
Stayin’ Alive: August 7 – 9
Staying Alive is the world’s number one tribute band to the Bee Gees hits the stage. This highly renowned group has thrived on the international music scene longer than any group in pop history, attesting to both their talent and adaptability. Because of their distinct and blended harmonies, the brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb have offered an impossible challenge to those who would pay them homage… until now!
Stayin’ Alive, with the vocal talents of Tony Mattina, Todd Sharman, and George Manz, creates a realistic experience of hearing and watching the brothers’ Gibb live in concert. This vocal trio, backed by studio musicians, completely capture the special sound of The Bee Gees.
The group performs a full Bee Gees playlist, singing blockbusters such as Night Fever, Jive Talkin, How Deep Is Your Love, You Should Be Dancin, Nights on Broadway, and Stayin Alive. And, they perform softer poetic ballads such as I Started a Joke, Massachusetts, Words, and To Love Somebody, among other unforgettable hits.
Stayin’ Alive showcases big-screen video clips, photos and dazzling imagery as part of its ode to the Bee Gees. Their show blends the excitement of live performance with the vocal subtleties of the groups’s tight, three-part harmonies. Tickets for Stayin’ Alive are $43 for adults and $33 for children and can be purchased at the Box Office at 843-842-ARTS or online at www.artshhi.com. They are going fast and that’s no jive talkin’!
Masters of Motown – August 29 – 30
You’ll be dancing in the street . . . or at least in the aisles on August 29 and 30 when Masters of Motown commands the Arts Center stage.
In the 60’s, some of the most iconic names in the history of popular music were discovered in the Motor City of Detroit, better known as Motown. Masters of Motown is a celebration of these artists, their dynamic music and their timeless sound. The non-stop show features stylishly costumed, fully choreographed performances of the 10-member cast, including three female vocalists, three male vocalists, guitar, bass, drums and keys, who have come together to reproduce the style, sound and ultimate feel that was quintessentially Motown. Throughout the course of the show, these performers transform into Stevie Wonder, The Four Tops, Diane Ross and the Supremes, The Pointer Sisters, The Jackson Five and so many more.
During this summertime stroll down memory lane, Masters of Motown will perform hits such as “Get Ready” by the Temptations, “Dancing in the Street” by Martha and the Vandellas and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.
This “generationless” show authentically reproduces the look, choreography, style and sound made famous by a record label that was relatively unknown at the time but went on to profoundly influence the history of popular music. The performance goes beyond the music to preserve the integrity of the entire Motown experience. For younger generations, the show offers a way to experience a period in our country’s past that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.
It’s a celebration of one of the greatest times in our musical history. But, don’t wait to hear through the grapevine how incredible this show is, get your tickets today! On stage August 29 and 30, tickets for Masters of Motown are $44 and may be purchased now at 843-842-ARTS or online at www.artshhi.com.
