Count Down to St. Patrick’s Day Party – March 16, 2019

Join us in Brown's Revolution Hall as we count down to St. Patrick's Day with live performances by Get Up Jack and special guests The Boland School of Irish Dance and fiddler Ryan Delaney. Just like a count down on New Year's Eve, Get Up Jack will play right up to when we count down the seconds to midnight and ring in St. Patrick's Day. Get Up Jack is a joyous retro-romp by six of the most energetic and charismatic performers in Irish music today. Their soaring vocals and enthusiastic performances have drawn comparisons to the old-school groups of their youth (like The Dubliners, The Clancy Brothers, and The Wolfe Tones), yet it is their own unique instrumentation, style, and delivery that makes them a one-of-a-kind experience. Doors open at 7 pm. 21+ show only. Proof of valid ID required to enter. No ticket refunds. Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the door. Click here to purchase advance tickets.

Catch John Popper accompanied by Ben Wilson of Blues Traveler live in concert at Brown's Revolution Hall at 8 pm. Doors open at 7 pm. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Click here to purchase tickets. The concert is 21+.

One of the most iconic harmonica players in history, John Popper is a virtuoso musician who has expanded the possibilities of the instrument for future generations. He is best known as the frontman and creative force of seminal jam band Blues Traveler, which he formed with high school friends in Princeton, NJ in the late ‘80s and led to mainstream success with 1994’s Four.

With skills honed both classically, at New York University’s The New School, and in the crucible of the '90s New York City jam scene, John has perfected the ability to cross all musical boundaries and genres. Over an illustrious 30-year career, he has sat in with acts as diverse as Phish, B.B. King, and Metallica among many others.

John’s solo show, with piano accompaniment from fellow Blues Traveler Ben Wilson, is an opportunity to share in this wealth of experience in an intimate setting. Enjoy as John tells some of the stories he’s picked up along the way, and plays beloved Blues Traveler hits as well as other original and traditional songs.
