An Evening with BJ Thomas

A true American institution whose iconic pop, country and gospel hits defined their respective generations and now transcend them, B.J. Thomas has found a unique way to celebrate an incredible half a century in music and some 47 years since his first gold selling hit on Scepter Records. The singer, a five time Grammy- and two time Dove-Award winner has sold more than 70 million records and is ranked in Billboard’s Top 50 most played artists over the past 50 years. Many of Thomas’ signature hits (from “Raindrops” to “Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song” and “Lonesome”) find him seeking some level of positivity to overcome the proverbial universal battle with loneliness. He extended this theme into his successful late 70’s-early 80’s foray into gospel music, which earned him the first four platinum albums in the genre’s history: Home Where I Belong, Happy Man, You Gave Me Love and Amazing Grace. Four of the singer’s Grammy Awards were earned from his work in gospel.

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.

Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to The Sing-Off–performing together for crowds in countless State and County Fairs, on college campuses, in Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a Sing-Off victory, swelling their fan base and bringing their homegrown country style into a national spotlight.

Home Free continues to entertain audiences with their high-energy show peppered with quick-witted humor that meshes Nashville standards with pop hits dipped in country flavor.  This fall they will embark on a tour supporting their soon-to-be released second Christmas album, and their concert at Reynolds will contain both Christmas songs and their distinct a cappella take on country tunes.

“So amazing, it’s hard to put into words. Your eyes will deceive you, your heartbeat will race, and your mind will be blown” – NY Theatre Guide

Broadway and TV star Adam Trent exemplifies a new generation of magician. 

As one of the stars of the hit Broadway show ‘The Illusionists,’ which shattered box office records during its 2014/2015 run, as well as his appearances on Good Morning America, America’s Got Talent, Disney Channel, ABC, VH1, Rachel Ray, Travel Channel, SyFy and others, he is one of the most in demand illusionists working today.

Described as Justin Timberlake meets David Copperfield, his audience interactive performances are part magic, part concert, and part stand up comedy, with a fast paced variety necessary for today’s theatre audience. Approaching his craftiness with a tongue-in-cheek attitude allows him to connect with people who normally hate magic shows. He promises that audiences will leave his show feeling differently than they expected to feel after a magic show.

In addition to his regular TV appearances and staggering schedule of over 300 live shows each year, Trent has a vast history of philanthropic work for which US News & World Report Magazine named him ‘1 of the 10 Most Influential Youths in America’.
