The year 2015 marks the 45th Anniversary of perennial classic-rock favorite, America. Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell met in high school in London in the late 1960s and quickly harmonized their way to the top of the charts on the strength of their signature song “A Horse With No Name”. America became a global household name and paved the way with an impressive string of hits following the success of their first #1 single.  Forty plus years later, these friends are still making music together, touring the world and thrilling audiences with their timeless sound.

America’s journey has found them exploring a wide variety of musical terrain.  Their best-known tunes, which also include “I Need You,” “Ventura Highway,” “Don’t Cross The River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “Sister Golden Hair” were cornerstones of 1970’s Top 40 and FM rock radio.

Reynolds is excited to welcome back HOME FREE, whose sold-out show in 2016 wowed the Conway audience and brought people from all surrounding states to hear their fun takes on country tunes!

When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC’s The Sing-Off, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota… rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.

Ronnie Milsap ranks as the pre-eminent country soul singer of his generation. He also represents much more than any two-word definition can convey: a humble, overtly friendly fellow with a talent as vast and multi-dimensional as the American South. Milsap provided country music with one of its most important voices, as the genre was moving beyond its rural roots into the mainstream of modern entertainment. Country music couldn’t have found a man more suited to lead the charge. Steeped in the mountain music of the North Carolina hills and schooled in classical piano, Milsap early in life found inspiration in a wide variety of music. Even as he mastered Beethoven and Mozart, his heart belonged to hardcore country and rhythm-and-blues — music he heard beamed from powerful radio stations located in Nashville. Those earthy sounds about life and love provided a young, impoverished blind boy with a connection to a world beyond the harsh reality of his daily existence.

The Doo Wop Project
From Bop to Pop…
Evolution of a Sound

The Doo Wop Project begins at the beginning, tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today. Throughout the show DWP takes audiences on a journey from foundational tunes of groups like the Crests, Belmonts and Flamingos through their influences on the sounds of Smokey Robinson, the Temptations, and the Four Seasons all the way to Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz and Amy Winehouse.

Featuring stars of Broadway’s smash hits Jersey Boys and Motown: The Musical with their hot band, The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate – and in some cases entirely reimagine – some of the greatest music in American pop and rock history.  Your audience will enjoy a night filled with harmonies and classic ‘60s hits such as Randy & The Rainbows’ “Denise”, Thurston Harris’ “Little Bitty Pretty One”, The Skyliners “Since I Don’t Have You”, The Capris’ “Morse Code of Love”, and many more.  The show also includes doo-wop-inspired renditions of contemporary songs such as Amy Winehouse’s “Valerie”, Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel”, and Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”.

The level of talent, artistry and ability to entertain is off the charts with this show.  It’s an evening of pure energy and magic, where audiences are lifted from their seats with excitement by the power and charisma of the gifted young performers.

Finalizing the group is the addition of vocalist-guitarist RAUL MIDON. The New York Times wrote he is “a one-man band who turns a guitar into an orchestra and his voice into a chorus.”
