“Sparkling, fresh and lively.” – Los Angeles Times The Hills Are Alive! A brand new production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC is coming to the Basie. The spirited, romantic and beloved musical story of Maria and the von Trapp Family will once again thrill audiences with its Tony®, Grammy® and Academy Award® winning Best Score, including “My Favorite Things,” “Do-Re-Mi,” “Climb Ev’ry Mountain,” “Edelweiss” and the title song. THE SOUND OF MUSIC features music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse, suggested by “The Trapp Family Singers” by Maria Augusta Trapp. THE SOUND OF MUSIC enjoyed extraordinary success as the first live television production of a musical in over 50 years when “The Sound of Music Live!” aired on NBC in December, 2013 and was seen by over 44 million people. 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of the film version, which continues to be the most successful movie musical in history.

See below for details.  CHEAP TRICK: Robin Zander (vocals, rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar) and Tom Petersson (bass guitar) are part of the very fiber of American music, inspiring and delighting generations with their unique union of massive melodies and razor blade riffs, their own special brand of mischievous wit and maximum rock ‘n’ roll. Since the ‘70s, they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable. With timeless classics such as “I Want You to Want Me” and “Surrender,” CHEAP TRICK, now with drummer Daxx Nielsen, are a musical institution. The Rockford, IL band is as vital today as ever, having released three records in the last three years -- BANG ZOOM CRAZY...HELLO (2016), WE’RE ALL ALRIGHT (2017) and CHRISTMAS CHRISTMAS (2017) –and toured relentlessly to packed audiences around the world. 2016 saw CHEAP TRICK's long-awaited induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The induction honored both the band and the pioneering sound that has earned them total record sales well in excess of 20 million featured appearances and more than 40 international Gold and Platinum certifications. 2017’s WE'RE ALL ALRIGHT! was yet another undisputed triumph for the band as the album's first single, "Long Time Coming," enjoyed an unprecedented run of 18 weeks at #1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock chart.

See below for details.  Legendary artist Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee - with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted twice into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a GRAMMY Award winner. Towering above virtually everything that Graham Nash has accomplished in his long and multi-faceted career, stands the litany of songs that he has written and introduced to the soundtrack of the past half-century. His remarkable body of work, beginning with his contributions to the Hollies opus from 1964 to ’68, including “Stop Stop Stop,” “On A Carousel,” and “Carrie Anne,” continues all the way to This Path Tonight (2016), his most recent solo album. Fifteen of his songs are celebrated in the 2018 release, Over the Years…, a 2-disc collection of some of Nash’s best-known works from the past 50 years and more than a dozen unreleased demos and mixes.

  Musicians United for Safe Energy (M.U.S.E.) - $250 Graham Nash's passionate voice has often been heard in support of peace, and social and environmental justice. During this tour, Graham is partnering with Musicians United for Safe Energy (M.U.S.E.) to raise funds on its behalf by offering you special benefit seating.*  M.U.S.E. is a non-profit organization that supports organizations worldwide that promote safe, alternative non-nuclear energy. The No Nukes/Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) concerts Graham organized with Jackson Browne and Bonnie Raitt in 1979 remain seminal benefit events.  In 2011, Graham was instrumental in bringing MUSE back to the forefront with a concert to benefit Japan disaster relief and groups promoting non-nuclear energy worldwide. *In exchange for your payment of $250 USD to attend the concert, a portion of the net proceeds for each ticket sale will be donated to M.U.S.E on behalf of Graham Nash.

Rodney Carrington is a multi-talented comedian, actor, singer and writer who recorded eight major record label comedy albums, which have sold millions of copies.

The same week, the re-release of Rodney Carrington Live, C’mon Laugh You Bastards debuted at Number Two on the Overall Comedy Charts. He then went back into the studio to record The Hits which also reached number one on the comedy charts.  According to Pollstar, Rodney has been one of the top ten highest grossing touring comedians for the last ten years and among the top 5 the last several years. Rodney is on track to be in the top 5 again this year as he regularly performs to sold out crowds across the US, Canada, and even Australia.

See below for details. Grateful Dead/Dead & Company guitarist Bob Weir, bassist Don Was and drummer Jay Lane under the moniker Bob Weir and Wolf Bros will explore songs of the Grateful Dead and more in a trio setting. Bob Weir is one of the founding members of the legendary Grateful Dead, which received a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007. The band has also appeared on Forbes’ list of top-grossing entertainers and in the early ‘90s were the highest-grossing concert attraction in the U.S. Since establishing the band in 1965, Weir has become one of rock’s finest and most distinctive rhythm guitarists. He is currently a member of Dead & Company which features Grateful Dead members Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann along with GRAMMY-winner John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti. Jay Lane is a founding member of Weir’s longtime band RatDog. The drummer also toured with Furthur for a brief stint and performed with Bobby and Rob Wasserman as part of Scaring The Children. Was introduced Weir and Mickey Hart to John Mayer, which eventually led to the formation of Dead & Company. “Wolf Bros is something that really took its roots back in the spring of 2015 when Don Was came up to TRI and helped us piece together Dead & Company,” Bob Weir said of the new project in a statement. “For a while now I’ve been itchin’ to explore our songs in a trio setting. An upright bass, my acoustic or electric guitar and a drummer. We did some rehearsals this past spring and it was big fun—and that’s the whole idea. We were kickin’ around Dead songs as well as tunes from my back pages. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have a big adventure with this…” Presented by Count Basie Center for the Arts

Between his two previous stand-up specials, THE MACHINE on Showtime (2016) and COMFORTABLY DUMB on Comedy Central (2009), his two podcasts: “Bertcast,” and “Open Tabs,” his YouTube cooking show: “Something’s Burning,” his book Life of the Party: Stories of a Perpetual Man-Child (2014), along with formerly hosting the Travel Channel’s TRIP FLIP and BERT THE CONQUEROR and FX’s HURT BERT, Bert has succeeded in finding the elusive blend of “being a cringe comedian with real insight” (Interrobang). Lauded as one of the best storytellers of his generation, Bert seamlessly and sincerely shares anecdotes about his family and fatherhood while showing his ability to prove “that there’s a way to take his [party-boy] antics into middle-age,” (Forbes).
