Redefining the tuba.

Redefining the tuba.

Bill Muter & The Sharp Shooters

Set your preconceived notions aside about the tuba. The tuba soloist for the Tony Award winning “Blast” jumps on the music scene with his band “The Sharp Shooters” and he’s coming to The Arts Garage.

Bill Muter mixes soul, fusion and R&B and will make you rethink the boundaries of the tuba.

He’ll play Friday at 8 p.m. at The Arts Garage.

Catch the Little River Band at The Crest

Have you heard about the Lonesome Loser?

I can take a shot at Dave here, but it’s simply too easy so once again I will digress.

This will be an amazing concert at Crest Theatre / Center for the Arts in Delray Beach.

The famed Little River Band will perform April 1 at the Crest Theatre, 51 N. Swinton Ave.
