Featuring two complete haunted houses, Deceased Farm is fast becoming the Midland's premiere haunted attraction. Conveniently located in Lexington, South Carolina next to the corn maze at Clinton Sease Farm, you can spend the day wandering the corn maze and when darkness falls come over to test your bravery in one or both attractions.

The main haunt encompasses three buildings that are crammed full of state of the art props and sets inhabited by over 30 live characters surrounded by a 2 acre haunted corn maze.

3D-ceased is a unique experience where the terror surrounds you. You wear a pair of 3D glasses just like you get at the movies, but that's where the comparison ends. Once you enter the doors you will be astonished at the incredibly detailed artwork and props that have been created by world renowned artist Stuart Smith of Stuartizm Designs LLC. Stuart literally travels the world painting his distinctive designs in venues large and small.

Deceased Farm is a very intense attraction and is NOT recomended for small children. We recomend children 12 years of age and up, but we will allow children younger if accompanied by an adult. Keep in mind that we do not offer refunds, so be sure your child is mature enough to handle the experience.

Both haunts are self guided tours so you can move through at your own pace. The main haunt generally takes between 30 to 45 minutes and the 3-D experience is around 10 to 20 minutes.

Cirque Du Soleil Varekai
Event Date: 11/5/2014 to 11/9/2014
Event Location: Colonial Life Arena - 801 Lincoln St, Columbia, SC 29201
Event Description:

Cirque Du Soleil - Varekai - Wed, Nov 5, 2014 7:30 pm; Thu, Nov 6, 2014 7:30 pm; Fri, Nov 7, 2014 7:30 pm; Sat, Nov 8, 2014 7:30 pm; Sun, Nov 9, 2014 1:30 pm ; Sun, Nov 9, 2014 5:00 pm

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world-a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.

The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind.

The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies-the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.

Ryan Hemsworth is a young producer from Canada with a remarkably productive output in the past two years and a totally unique approach to hip hop and R&B production.
With an early background as a singer and guitarist, he quickly weaned off rock into hip hop and more software oriented music, diving whole-heartedly into drum loops and samples. In 2011, his first release No Plans was featured on SPIN magazine's Top 20 R&B albums of 2011 and he quickly followed up with A Way and Kitsch Genius, which got him increasingly noticed for a singular sound attracting a number of music critics and artists from across the country. He soon began cultivating relationships online and became a go-to producer for MCs like Main Attrakionz, Shady Blaze, and Deniro Farrar, helping craft a sound sitting somewhere between chill wave and trap rap. Hyperbolic Chamber Music, a collaborative project with NYC clothing brand Mishka, saw him at the helm of a 22-minute posse cut featuring 26 different rapper from across America, and his remix treatment of Grimes, Frank Ocean, and Danny Brown have kept his name spreading in the past year.
With his first label release, the Last Words EP released through Wedidit Collective, Ryan Hemsworth continues his sonic collages and explorations, digging even deeper into unexplored genres and delivering his finest work to date.

Event Location: Colonial Life Arena - 801 Lincoln St, Columbia, SC 29201
Event Description:

Cirque Du Soleil - Varekai - Wed, Nov 5, 2014 7:30 pm; Thu, Nov 6, 2014 7:30 pm; Fri, Nov 7, 2014 7:30 pm; Sat, Nov 8, 2014 7:30 pm; Sun, Nov 9, 2014 1:30 pm ; Sun, Nov 9, 2014 5:00 pm

Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world-a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.

The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind.

The word Varekai (pronounced ver·ay·’kie) means “wherever” in the Romany language of the gypsies-the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.

SOUTH CAROLINA’S BLUE DOGS COMPLETE 25th YEAR
sold out show on 12/29/13 caps their silver anniversary

(Charleston SC, January 1, 2014): After 25 years of playing shows and releasing 9 CD's and 2 DVD's, South Carolina's Blue Dogs celebrated in grand style with a sold-out two-set performance at the Charleston Music Hall on Sunday, December 29, 2013, joined by special guests and friends paying tribute to the band and, in some cases, singing the Blue Dogs' songs back to the band. Darius Rucker sang "Isabelle" (along with his own "Wagon Wheel," and his old bandmates from Hootie and the Blowfish joined him onstage for two Hootie hits, "Time" and "Hold My Hand"). Edwin McCain sang the Dogs' "Rainbows Over My Blues" and part of "I'd Give Anything" (as well as his own "Gramercy Park Hotel"). Well-known Nashville songwriter (and Texas native) Radney Foster performed with the band two songs that he co-wrote with Dogs lead singer Bobby Houck, "Half of My Mistakes" and "What's Wrong with Love Songs." There were also appearances by other South Carolina musicians including Cravin Melon's Doug Jones, Dangermuffin's Dan Lotti, Danielle Howle, Mac Leaphart and John Satterfield, and most of the former members of the Blue Dogs.

The band continues in 2014 to perform on pace to do more than 100 shows a year, from clubs, festivals, and colleges to corporate events, private parties, and fundraisers---primarily from New York to Florida but expanding wherever they are called. They continue to maintain a national (and international) fanbase, with all 9 recordings available through iTunes and other digital portals via their distributor, Redeye, and their CD's, DVD's and other merchandise offered exclusively at their website, www.bluedogs.com. 2013 marked 25 years since standup bassist Hank Futch joined forces with longtime friend, fellow cub scout, and acoustic guitarist/vocalist Bobby Houck under the band name “Blue Dogs.” And so the Charleston SC-based Blue Dogs quietly move into their 26th year as a band (est. 1987) playing and singing Americana/country-rock music.

The band has performed on the same stage with such well-known and diverse artists as Willie Nelson, Widespread Panic, Bruce Hornsby, and Hootie and the Blowfish and more. They have also received national exposure by singing the national anthem on NBC at the final Southern 500 NASCAR race in Darlington SC in 2004, and in 2007 by performing as the house band on a week’s worth of Wheel of Fortune shows.

For more information on the Blue Dogs, please visit the band online at www.bluedogs.com. 

* * *

Back in 2008, to mark their 20th, the Blue Dogs released a DVD of a live performance in their hometown, recorded in a 200-year-old theatre called the Dock Street Theatre, where they not-so-coincidentally made their first live CD 10 years earlier). On Thanksgiving Day 2008, Live at the Dock Street Theatre…again (Black River) was made available exclusively at www.bluedogs.com, or at the band’s live shows.

That video serves as a milestone in the Dogs’ career in more ways than one. With 99 minutes of footage, it includes guest appearances by some of their good friends and well-known South Carolina musicians: Blue Dogs songwriter Phillip Lammonds, Tommy Dew and Kevin Wadley from the influential 90’s Charleston band The Archetypes, Columbia’s Danielle Howle, and the Adande African Drum ensemble featuring former Dogs percussionist (‘97-’98) Jesse Thrower.

The show might as well be considered the Blue Dogs’ definitive performance. It is packed with 20 songs, pulling from all 5 of their studio releases as well as a couple of songs that have never been released by the band. There are fan favorites throughout. And the band runs the gamut stylistically, flexing their country/pop muscles, but then also weaving in the bluegrass sensibility that goes back to the band’s beginnings, while then managing to incorporate African djembe drums seamlessly into the show.

In fact, what is so obviously present in this show is a Blue Dogs trademark: an loose unpredictability. Various local and regional bluegrass musicians step on and off the stage with ease, most with no rehearsal that day with the band. At one point in the show, the band blows an intro to the song, and without missing a beat, stops and jokes and then starts again. Not surprisingly, the moment was not edited from the footage and made the final cut.

Rounding out the band’s lineup for the show is original Dogs’ drummer Greg Walker, whose first gig with the then-acoustic band was in 1992 at the Music Farm in Charleston, where he spontaneously set up and played and has been the band’s drummer ever since. The newest member of the band is celebrating his 10th anniversary--guitarist David Stewart, who plays flawlessly on this night. Yet the star of the evening could well be the band’s some-time mandolin player, Daren Shumaker, who is all over the stage and all over the songs with tasteful solos and licks and seems to be having the time of his life. Everyone shines in this video, which truly turns out to be just the right kind of celebration as it showcases the achievements of a band 20 years in and on top of their game.

***

As it turned out, 2005 was a prolific year for the band. In January of that year, Live at Workplay, a live cd released in 2006, was recorded at the Birmingham, Alabama concert venue of the same name. Produced by Bruce Hornsby guitarist and veteran producer Doug Derryberry, the CD was a warm up of sorts for the Live at the Dock Street…again DVD, pulling from all of their previous records but featuring just the core group, the current Dogs lineup (the same since 1998): Houck and Futch with Walker and Stewart. 

Recorded before a very lively and intimate audience, Workplay features versions of songs from their more recent studio albums Halos and Good Buys, Letters from Round O, and Blue Dogs (all recorded after 1996, when the band went full time), but it also reaches back to their early 90’s recordings Music For Dog People and Soul Dogfood and includes several previously unreleased songs. Many of the Blue Dogs’ most-requested songs are present, including “Walter,” “Isabelle,” “Cosmic Cowboy,” “Bill Bill,” “Half of My Mistakes” (co-written by Bobby Houck and famed Texan-turned-Nashvillian songwriter Radney Foster) and “Make Your Mama Proud,” plus Hank Futch takes a turn on the acoustic guitar with the gospel song “Children, Go Where I Send Thee” and Arthur Smith’s “Conversation with a Mule.” A rendition of Lyle Lovett’s “L.A. County” and a take on Blue Mountain’s “Blue Canoe” (seemingly custom-made for the Blue Dogs) close the CD in rocking fashion.

The CD received accolades right away, from fans and critics and radio. The Midwest Record Recap writes:

“Once again we have to wonder why this bunch of roots rockers are one of the best bands you never heard of. A hard working outfit that rubs some mighty impressive elbows along their way, here they do a live recap and more of their ten years as pros. Turning the crowd on with great ease, the Dogs deliver the goods and go on their merry way. Funtastic outing that simply lets the good times roll without pretense or affect.”

The CD was accepted with open arms by XM Radio, where Channel 12’s “X-Country” played numerous tracks from the album until it climbed to #1 on its chart by August 2006. And listeners of one of the biggest AAA/Americana stations in the country, WNCW, put Workplay in its year-end list of the top 50 Americana records of the year.

The Blue Dogs’ previous CD, 2004’s Halos and Good Buys, was produced by Don Gehman (John Mellencamp, REM, Hootie & the Blowfish, Pat Green), garnering excellent critical reviews and extensive airplay, particularly on the Texas music charts. “The road-seasoned band effectively straddles the line between loose rock swagger and radio-friendly hooks,” said Billboard magazine in its review. An earlier CD, 1999’s Letters from Round O, was produced by Cracker front-man-turned-producer David Lowery and generated radio response from Modern Rock, Triple A and Americana radio, as well as glowing reviews in the New York Times and the Washington Post, among others.

October 3, 2014 -- SEVENDUST has announced the third and final leg of their acoustic U.S. tour in support of their critically acclaimed acoustic album, TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES, which kicks off November 4 in Knoxville, TN at The International. It’s the first time the band will play these cities this year, including the band’s hometown of Atlanta. Tickets go on sale Saturday, October 4 at 10:00am EST. They’ll be joined by the Alabama rock band A.Z., who’ll also be performing acoustic. 

Released April 15 on the band’s 7Bros. Records, in conjunction with ADA Label Services, TIME TRAVELERS & BONFIRES debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Top Hard Music Albums” chart (their second consecutive #1 album). 

After taking a break once the tour concludes to spend the holidays with their families, the Atlanta band will go return to the studio in early 2015 to get back to basics and record the follow-up to their last plugged-in album, BLACK OUT THE SUN.

Even though SEVENDUST will be playing acoustic guitars instead of electric on this run, they won’t be turning down the intensity of their notoriously explosive live performances. As New Noise Magazine raved: “Sevendust’s acoustic show at the always cool Highline Ballroom in New York City’s lower West Side was hands down one of the best shows I’ve ever been to in my life... At times vocalist Lajon Witherspoon, one of the most talented men in rock, was even moved to tears while thanking the crowd repeatedly... while drummer Morgan Rose kicked ass and seemed to play as intensely as he does in an electric mode...7D showed everyone the range and impact they are capable of... The band, Vince, John, Morgan, Clint and Lajon, have more groove, harmony and talent in their pinkies than most band’s ever reach.”

While the Buffalo News noted, “‘...a bit gentler’ for this group is still twice as loud and fierce as most others are at full force. Though the guitars were indeed acoustic, they were still amped up and strumming furiously along to keep up with lead singer Lajon Witherspoon’s powerhouse voice. It was acoustic with a caustic bite, something Sevendust managed with style and confidence.” And the Denver Post praised: “Most songs were rearranged to be performed acoustic, and while toned down, they resonated with power and energy few bands can match without being overwhelmingly amped up with distortion.”

Last month, SEVENDUST gave television viewers a glimpse into their acoustic show with their first-ever concert special on AXS TV, which aired as part of the network’s “Headliner Club Series.” Check out “Come Down” from the show here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mPG6_LpqLw.

Snails
Snails is a Montreal-based producer and DJ who pushes a forward-thinking brand of dance music combining trap rhythms, dirty bass lines and off-kilter sound design. His first tracks appeared online in 2012 on Kannibalen Records. Since then he has amassed a burgeoning fanbase of snail-heads and bass- lovers. Recent releases like "Dirty Raxxx", "RBBR" and "SLUGZ" blend hypnotic melodies, huge drops and mind-bending sample manipulation into a tight, dance- floor friendly package. Snails' latest track "Wild", co-produced with Antiserum and released on Skrillex's Owsla Records, was one of the standout tracks at the 2014 edition of Ultra Music Festival. Having recently signed with Circle Talent, Snails looks primed to bring his unique take on dance music to the mainstream.

Breathe Carolina
Breathe Carolina
Since first bursting on to the scene in 2008, Breathe Carolina has struck an inimitable alchemy between electronic music and rock, vaulting them continually ahead of the curve and into a lane of their own. That hybrid transformed the group into a cross-genre sensation with their platinum-selling 2011 breakout single "Blackout" from Hell Is What You Make It, which garnered the band a Top 20 Top 40 hit, coverage from The New York Times, USA Today, a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and prime placement across MTV's networks.

It's follow-up Savages sees the unit once again treading boldly into fresh territory, delving heavier into the electronic dance world while staying true to their rock roots, a combination that sounds equally at home in a club, or lighting up packed fields at Warped Tour. Featuring guest vocals from pop artist Karmin, and rock frontmen Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) and Tyler Carter (Issues), Savages solidifies the band's unique ability to straddle multiple musical styles and blend it into a sound all their own, a sound that is as infectious as it is euphoric - and about to become the soundtrack to your summer.
Candyland
Candyland
Santa Barbara natives Ethan and Josie aka CANDYLAND began producing their own original songs back in April of 2012. After becoming the first act to win back-to-back Beatport remix contests (Skrillex "Make it Bun Dem" & Bingo Players "Rattle") and racking up over 1.3 Million Soundcloud plays, they released their debut album "Bring the Rain" on SPINNIN RECORDS (Jan 21st 2013) which charted: #3 on the Beatport Overall Top 100, #1 on Dubstep Top 100, #1 on Electro House Top 100, #1 on Drum N Bass Top 100, as well as #1 on the Glitch Hop Top 100. Candyland continues to pave their own lane bridging the gap between trap, dubstep, and house music with every original/remix they release.
DOTCOM
DOTCOM
Deriving "Dotcom" from his last name "Comstock," Dotcom has exploded on the bass scene with his explosive trap remixes and heavy hitting production.

Drawing influences from the likes of Dillon Francis, Diplo, and Flosstradamus - traces of dubstep, trap, and even progressive house can be found in Dotcom's unique sound and style.

Dotcom's remix of Chief Keef's "Hate Being Sober," has seen 800,000+ plays in just one month. Averaging 300k plays a week on his Soundcloud, Dotcom is surely on the rise and an up and comer in the EDM world.

Dotcom has received support and attention from trap/dubstep's finest - Crizzly, HeRobust, and many more.
Flinch
Flinch
Los Angeles based beat maker Adam Glassco, better known as Flinch, is no stranger to the EDM world. A veteran producer who has progressed effortlessly from his beginnings in drum & bass and then electro, to current endeavors into jump-up and deeper, more melodic synth-based dubstep. The succession of sounds Flinch adheres to reflects a new breed of artists distinguished most by his ability to marry a massive, tear-out bassline with a melody that could serenade your grandmother, or create tracks that pair careful grit & distortion with catchy songwriting. A true tastemaker, Flinch consistently delivers a wide selection of cuts riding between the UK funky, club, moombahton, techno, garage, and dubstep genre lines. There is an undeniable buzz in the bass music world for Flinch's recent productions on labels such as SMOG and Trouble & Bass, most notably his massive single "World On Fire," which has often been championed by Skrillex, 12th Planet, and Datsik and is making a huge impact with audiences worldwide.

Classic American author Thomas Wolfe famously stated "you can't go home again," but don't tell that to the members of O.A.R. On their eighth studio album, THE ROCKVILLE LP, the shape-shifting rock band found that returning home triggered a journey of creative renewal and inspiration. 

"This isn't about us going back to our musical roots per se," says lead singer Marc Roberge, who founded O.A.R. in 1996 with his Rockville, Md. high school classmates, drummer Chris Culos, guitarist Richard On, and bassist Benj Gershman (saxophonist Jerry DePizzo joined while the group was at Ohio State University). "It's about us getting inspired by the place we came from. We'd drive the same roads, visit the old haunts, spend time with our people. Rockville was the catalyst then, and it's the catalyst now." 

For the first time in a while, the band found that visiting their Maryland hometown gave them a sense of peace. For years, they had been pushing themselves to reach new levels of success, searching for their place in the world. Plus, turbulent times within their personal lives had led them to a slightly disconnected state. "I went home to Maryland many times while making this album and based these songs on all the familiar feelings that Rockville gave me," Roberge says. "I tried to focus in on the simple things that always made this band so creative and driven. For everyone in the band, this was a restart. We've been hanging out, enjoying life, letting things go…The whole album is about a reboot." 

That sense of renewal is evident on the first single, the deep, yearning "Peace." "As we were writing it, I felt the weight of three years lift off my shoulders," Roberge says. "We wrote it about getting back to that even playing field after you go through turbulent times. It's about what I see people going through all around me, everyone deserves second, third, fourth chances." 

Roberge wrote "Peace" with Blair Daly and Nashville-based producer Nathan Chapman, best known for his work with Taylor Swift, after Roberge introduced himself to Chapman at an event in Los Angeles. The two got along so well that, in addition to "Peace," their writing sessions yielded three other songs: "Favorite Song," "Two Hands Up" and "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." Chapman produced "Favorite Song" and "Two Hands Up," while Gregg Wattenberg, who co-wrote O.A.R.'s No. 1 smash, "Shattered (Turn the Car Around)," produced "Peace." Chapman and Wattenberg shared production duties on "We'll Pick Up Where We Left Off." With those four tracks serving as the foundation for the album and as a boost to the band's confidence, Roberge produced the rest of the tracks on THE ROCKVILLE LP including a co-production with Jerry DePizzo on "The Element." "We felt like we were on to something with an overwhelming freedom to chase down some more songs," Roberge says.

THE ROCKVILLE LP, which was recorded in Nashville, Bethesda, Md., and Brooklyn, N.Y., features some of O.A.R.'s most diverse, intricate songs to date. Bold horn arrangements weave in and out of several of the tunes, including "Irish Rose" sequel and DePizzo showcase, the jangly, story song, "Caroline the Wrecking Ball," as well as the ambitious "The Architect," a song adored by longtime fans, but one O.A.R. had never committed to an album before. 

Pure joy and light-heartedness infuse album opener, the spiky infectious anthem, "Two Hands Up," and the irrepressible reggae-tinged "Favorite Song" in which Roberge cheerfully references dozens of song titles. "We were driving down roads in Nashville and Maryland feeling nostalgic harkening back to the days of endlessly flipping through the radio dial singing loudly to your favorite songs. This song is an ode to the hit, to recognize the pure joy you can get from a song and some rolled down windows."

O.A.R. is renowned for its intense, vibrant live show — including selling out Madison Square Garden twice —and the communal feeling it shares with its fans. With each studio album, the band has endeavored to achieve that sense of immediacy. On THE ROCKVILLE LP, "it comes the closest," Roberge says."Every live band I know will always want nothing more than to carry their live performance onto the album. It's an elusive thing to capture, so I'll never say we nailed it," Roberge says. "But I can guarantee we put that same live show energy and passion into each minute of THE ROCKVILLE LP and we can only hope the audience feels that."
Andy Grammer
Andy Grammer
From hustling street performer on Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade to Platinum-selling recording artist, it seems like just yesterday that ANDY GRAMMER was discovered by Steve Greenberg and signed to S-Curve Records. With his 2011 self-titled debut album, Grammer became the first male pop star in a decade, since John Mayer in 2002, to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, "Keep Your Head Up" and "Fine By Me," certified Platinum and Gold respectively, selling more than 1.5 million downloads combined. 

In just a few short years, Grammer has gone on to sell over 100,000 albums, play sold out venues nationwide, perform onstage with Taylor Swift, Train, and Colbie Caillat, appear on an array of national TV shows, receive major song placements in film and TV, receive two BMI Pop Music Awards, grace the cover of national touring trade magazine Pollstar and present at their annual awards show, among many other accomplishments.

While hard at work on his highly anticipated sophomore album titled Magazines or Novels, due outAugust 5 onS-Curve Records, Grammer released "Back Home," a joyously anthemic track that illustrates his knack for writing infectious, relatable songs remains strong, as does his soaring voice. It also showcases the musician's growth since his last full-length release. On the new album, Grammer reinforces his place among elite male pop artists through honest reflections of the impressive ride he's been on during the past couple of years.

"'Back Home' is about those friends, specific places and vivid memories that remind us who we are," says Grammer, who wrote the song while far from home on a national headline tour, hoping to recapture that which is always part of him.

Who's Bad

Who's Bad

An ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute band needs glitzy jackets, glittery gloves and 80's regalia. It must pay studious attention to the intricate details of every original groove and gravity-defying dance step. It must demonstrate a commitment to the unforgettable musical legacy the King of Pop left us. Beyond replaying MJ's countless hits, an ultimate Michael Jackson tribute band must possess the ability to connect millions of people around the globe with each resurrection of our favorite Michael Jackson songs.

In January of 2004, Who's Bad mesmerized a standing-room only gathering of friends and pop music lovers at a small nightclub in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. They have since played over 700 shows in numerous countries and now boast the title, "The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band." Their live performance is a jaw-dropping musical extravaganza that pulls from 3 ½ hours of Michael Jackson's catalogue and spans four decades of Michael Jackson's extraordinary music career.

From ABC to You Rock My World, no song is forgotten in this electrifying revival of Pop Music's Royal Highness. As the longest running MJ tribute band and the only one that predates his passing, Who's Bad has awed Michael Jackson fans at sold-out shows the world over. Who's Bad has packed internationally-acclaimed pavilions numerous times, including The House of Blues in Houston, Dallas, and New Orleans; Washington D.C.'s 930 Club, and the River Rock Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia. Their first tour of China included sold-out stops at Ningbo's Grand Theatre, Wutaishan Stadium in Nanjing, People's Grand Hall in Chongqing, Red Stadium in Chengdu, and Hunan Grand Theatre in Chengsha. Who's Bad also gained the respect and admiration of thousands of MJ fans in the United Kingdom with performances at Royal and Derngate in Northampton, Central Theatre in Chatham, Embassy Theatre in Skegness, The Orchard Theatre in Dartford, The Palace Theater in Manchester and The Pavilion in Glasgow. With sold-out shows from Colorado's Bluebird Theatre to Romania's Sala Palatalui and anticipated tour dates in Central and South America, no corner of the globe is safe from this infectious party production.

Founded in 2004 by saxophonist, composer and arranger Vamsi Tadepalli and spearheaded by some of North Carolina's premiere musicians, Who's Bad has crafted an intricate performance complete with synchronized dance routines, blaring horn section and down-deep rhythms--each delivered with a precision that could only be superseded by the King himself. They've shared the stage with some of pop music's biggest acts including Aretha Franklin, The Four Tops, Boys II Men, and The Backstreet Boys. Captivated fans include LIVENATION's Anthony Nicolaidis who calls Who's Bad, "the real deal," and Michael Jackson's longtime friend and manager Frank DiLeo, who, after catching Who's Bad's concert in Nashville, TN said, "The show was great… Michael would have been proud!" Such accolades have earned Who's Bad an invitation to play London's O2 in December of 2010, the venue where the King of Pop was slated to end his career with a 50-show "This Is It" concert series before meeting his untimely demise.

Whether you idolized the Jackson 5, fell in love to Human Nature or memorized all of Thriller's creepy choreography, Who's Bad is authentic, music-driven, must-see entertainment that navigates you back to that special place. As the curtain opens on a Who's Bad performance, even the most skeptical Michael Jackson fan feels the excitement rising, screams at the sight of that unmistakable silhouette, and succumbs to a surefire MJ sing-along. The energy is magnetic, the musicianship is first-class, the dance moves exhilarating. Who's Bad is a homage befitting a King and their high octane execution of MJ hits has exclusively catapulted them to the ranks of ultimate!

This season's production has a few familiar faces from its debut at Town in 2006 but also welcomes many performers - some who have been on Town's stage and others who are making their theatre debut! In addition to some new faces, we have added a few new twists including a children's ensemble that will welcome you to the theater with some good old fashioned Christmas carols. We'll also pay special tribute to the late Walker Gaddy who originated the role of Ezekiel in our 2006 production.

Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera - October 17, 2014 - January 08, 2015
Norman Rockwell is one of the most famous and beloved American illustrators for his depictions of everyday life created with humor, skill, and emotion. However, it is little known that he staged photographs to make his popular covers of the Saturday Evening Post . This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.

Norman Rockwell
Event Date: 11/26/2014 to 1/8/2015
Event Location: Columbia Museum of Art - 1515 Main Street Columbia, SC 29202
Event Description:

Norman Rockwell: Behind the Camera - October 17, 2014 - January 08, 2015
Norman Rockwell is one of the most famous and beloved American illustrators for his depictions of everyday life created with humor, skill, and emotion. However, it is little known that he staged photographs to make his popular covers of the Saturday Evening Post . This landmark exhibition includes 50 photographs that show the careful process Rockwell used to make his art, as well as 16 original paintings and drawings. Selecting props and locations, choosing and directing his models, he carefully orchestrated each element of his design for the camera before beginning to paint. This exhibition takes viewers "behind the scenes" in the creative process of one of America's great masters.
