Levitt Pavilion Wraps Up Fall Concert Season: Oct. 5-7 and Oct. 13
Friday, 10/5: The 10-year anniversary celebration for Levitt Pavilion Arlington wouldn't be complete without the triple-threat fiddles and killer harmony of The Quebe Sisters. The fiddle champions played at the Levitt during its very first mini-season of concerts in October 2008.
The Quebe Sisters started performing together when they were growing up in Burleson. Hulda, Sophia and Grace were 7, 10 and 12 when they attended their first fiddle competition in nearby Denton. The girls earned solo and group accolades early on, winning state and national championships in their respective age groups four years in a row. The Quebes now headline their own shows and share stages with music legends like Willie Nelson, George Strait, Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, and Ray Benson and Asleep at the Wheel.
Saturday, 10/6: The four-piece JB and the Moonshine Band was born the day JB Patterson looked up to see that only three musicians had shown up to his open-call auditions in his hometown in Tyler. Fortunately, it turned out to be the right three. In just a few short years, Patterson has written a couple of tunes that wound up on top of the Billboard Texas Music charts, and he and the band have recorded and released two acclaimed albums, Ain't Goin' Back to Jail and Beer for Breakfast, which made Rolling Stone's Top Five Country albums of 2012. Last year, they were nominated for six Texas Regional Radio awards. The combination of the band's great chemistry and Patterson's songwriting gives these East Texas guys instant Texas music credibility.
Sunday, 10/7: Engaging. Breathtaking. Mesmerizing. After sell-out seasons in Europe and an extended debut in Australia, Cirque Zuma Zuma is ready to wow Arlington for the last performance of Levitt's free concert season. This exhilarating African experience, performed by talented young artists from 16 African nations, is unlike anything you have ever seen before. Many describe Cirque Zuma Zuma as an African-style Cirque du Soleil. The show's music, dance and cultural art inspires mysticism, magic and excitement, all presented with the allure of an African circus.
All shows listed above begin at 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, 10/13: The Levitt Pavilion is presenting one more concert this fall. Barenaked Ladies will perform at 9 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, with special guest Daphne Willis opening at 7:30 p.m. The concert is the annual paid-ticket concert that helps support free music at the Levitt. Tickets are $40 for general admission and $185 for the VIP experience, which includes a reserved parking area, a pre-concert dinner and auction, and reserved seats in the VIP area for the concert. Tickets are available online at levittpavilionarlington.org.
