Bands, comedians coming to Meyer Theatre

This will be the seventh year that the Meyer Theatre has hosted performances for the community.

Events coordinator Tom Ryder said he is satisfied with the schedule that the campus events committee put together this year.

“I think we have a real solid line-up,” Ryder said. “My goal was always to provide shows that, even if you don’t know the name, if you come out you’re going to enjoy it.”

One of the highlights this year is the Stars of Beatlemania, a group that impersonates the Beatles. They have starred on Broadway and have performed in Canada, Europe and South America.

Another group of impersonators is The Legends of Rock & Roll. They will do a tribute to ZZ Top, The Eagles, and CCR.

An original band that will be performing is Pure Prairie League. The band has been together since 1969. One song people will recognize them sing is “Amie”. It was a top 40 hit in 1974.

Ryder said the biggest name in the line up of performers is Paula Poundstone. Poundstone was popular in the 80s. Right now she is doing NPR and is on comedy central.

“Extremely funny lady,” Ryder also said. “She has a great rapport with the audience.”

Some local performers include The Monroe Big Band and Kevin McPeek, a comedian. He has performed on HBO and Comedy Central.

The Monroe Big Band is a 16-piece jazz orchestra. They will perform renditions of songs sang by Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, and Harry Connick Jr, along with many others.

Tickets can be purchased by phone with a Visa or Mastercard at (734) 384-4272, or they can be purchased at the MCCC cashier’s office.

If tickets are still available a half hour before the show, MCCC students can buy tickets that are half off.
