Upcoming Performances at Sheridan Opera House

Posted by on

We have three awesome shows to add to our summer 2015 lineup! Mark your calendars for the following concerts and on-sale dates.

On Friday, July 3, we celebrate Independence Day with Joe, a Tribute to Joe Cocker! Tickets are $25 general admission floor and $35 reserved seats on the balcony. They will increase by $5 day of the show.

Joe, A Tribute to Joe Cocker is a labor of love that springs from a deep and abiding admiration for the music of Joe Cocker from a legion of musicians from Detroit, Michigan. Joe Cocker was one of rock and roll’s enduring performers with his gutsy, gravelly vocal stype and unique stage presence that made him not only one of the most dynamic singers in the music indstry, but one of the most distinctive voices in the history of rock and roll.

The band is committed to accurately representing this well respected interpreter of classic soul records, big power ballads and high energy tracks. They strive to bring the frenetic spirit of Joe Cocker’s live performances, like Woodstock, to audiences far and wide, and we are very excited to have them bring that energy to the intimate Sheridan Opera House.

Tickets for this show go on sale Friday, May 29 at 12 p.m.noon (Colorado time).

On Saturday, Aug. 8, we collaborate once again with the incomparable Jewel for a night of music and storytelling at the Sheridan Opera House. The show will be a fundraiser for the Sheridan Arts Foundation, the non-profit that owns and operates the historic Sheridan Opera House, and Jewel’s non-profit Project Clean Water.

Jewel is an acclaimed American singer, songwriter, actress, poet, painter, philanthropist and daughter to an Alaskan cowboy singer-songwriter. From the remote ranch of her Alaskan youth to the triumph of international stardom, the three-time Grammy nominee, hailed by the New York Times as a “songwriter bursting with talents” has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists. Whether alone with her guitar or fronting a band of ace musicians, Jewel has always been a charismatic live performer, earning the respect of other singer-songwriters such as Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, who, not only invited her to open their shows, but mentored her in the early phases of her career. Her singular style and beauty continuously land her on the covers of such diverse magazines as Time,People, Entertainment Weekly, Vanity Fair, In Style, Glamour andSeventeen. Stuff listed her among its ‘102 Sexiest Women in the World’ while Blender went further, crowning her ‘rock’s sexiest poet.

Tickets for this show are $75, $125 & $200 depending on location in the theater. The show will be reserved seating.

Tickets go on sale on FRIDAY, JUNE 5 at 12 p.m. (Colorado time).

There will be a Meet and Greet with Jewel open only to ticket purchasers for an additional $30 with all proceeds from the show and Meet & Greet benefitting Project Clean Water and the historic Sheridan Opera House. Information about the Meet & Greet will be available once tickets go on sale.

 And a few days later in August, we present internationally known pianist Scott Cossu & Friends live at the Sheridan Opera House on Tuesday, Aug. 11 for a night of jazz, blues and barrel house boogie. Cossu was up front when New Age was just beginning more than 30 years ago, and he’s now considered the grandfather of the New Age scene. Billboard Magazine labeled him a “jazz luminary of the future.” Cossu will be joined by Slyderz Van Manakas on Guitar and Scott Emerson Doser on Percussion with a variety of special guests. Tickets are $20 and $30 reserved seats with cabaret tables up front. Tickets will be $5 more the day of the show, buy in advance!Tickets go on sale May 29, 12 p.m. noon (Colorado time).

We kick off our summer concerts next Friday June 5 with a FREE show featuring Durango-based indie soul outfit Hello, Dollface at the Sheridan Opera House. The show is free, but donations will be accepted at the door for our Wild West Fest scholarship fund.

And please don’t forget Preservation Hall Jazz Band has been on sale for a while now, and tickets are still available for the June 9 show at the Sheridan Opera House. Our new ticketing policy is to $5 more the day of the show, so buy in advance if you’re considering coming to this show to save money.
