Concert / Live Music

The Collingsworth Family, presented by Gospel Music Live

Gospel Music Live promotions is pleased to announce a special celebration to mark the 50th-year anniversary of live music productions throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond. It will feature the multi award-winning Collingsworth Family at the historic Canton Palace Theatre, located at 605 Market Avenue, North, Canton, Ohio on April 28, 2023.

Gospel Music Live started 50 years ago with a “Fall Festival Gospel Sing” featuring the LeFevre’s from Atlanta, Georgia, the Rhythm Masters Quartet from Cincinnati, Ohio, JD Sumner & the Stamps Quartet from Nashville, Tn., and the Evangelaire’s Quartet from Akron, Ohio, plus Pat Brown on the organ. James Lawson, promoter states, “My cousin, Larry Arnold sang beautifully His Eye Is on the Sparrow to open the evening event. Later, he was offered a singing position with Eva Mae, Rex Nelon and all the LeFevre’s.” Tickets were $3.00 for adults and $1.50 for Children 13 years and younger.

Mr. Lawson was also, the first promoter in the Northeast Ohio area, to start Christian Dinner concerts at the Kaufman Center, Hartville, Ohio. Over the past five decades James has had the opportunity of working with about every major gospel group including many gospel music legends. “Although our concerts focused in Canton, Ohio, my journey has taken me to other cities including Butler, Pittsburgh, Altoona, and Sommerset, Pennsylvania, Elmira, N.Y., Wheeling, Parkersburg, and Charleston, West Virginia, Dayton, New Philadelphia, Barberton, Wadsworth, Akron, and Wooster, Ohio.” James recalls, “it was Hovie Lister of the Statesmen, that suggested I find a bigger venue which precipitated the move to the Canton Palace Theatre.”

Gospel Music Live’s special “50th Anniversary” concert featuring the Collingsworth Family will take place in the hall of fame city (Canton) at the historic Canton Palace Theatre like you have never heard them before. Canton’s crown jewel, the Palace is one of the few remaining atmospheric theatres; it is just like being in a Spanish courtyard on a mid-summer starry night with wisps of clouds, creating a dream effect.

Although the night will feature gospel music’s Favorite Mixed Group-the Collingsworth Family, it is worth the price of your ticket just to hear Musician of the Year-Kim Collingsworth as she plays the grand piano. Other surprises will make this night one to remember. A special “Meet & Greet” will take place in the upper Lobby starting at 6PM for those with a VIP ticket. Doors will open at 6:30PM for all other ticket holders. It all gets underway at 7PM, Friday, April 28, 2023.

Tickets will officially go on sale to the public on December 1, 2022 at 10:00am (Eastern Time). Tickets can be purchased online at www.GMLconcerts.org or by calling toll free 800-965-9324.

America, presented by Latshaw Productions

America, the perennial classic-rock favorite, is continuing to celebrate its 50th Anniversary with their powerful performances. Founding members, Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (along with former band mate, the late Dan Peek) 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.

The Grammy Award winners’ widely renowned singles–including “Horse With No Name,” “Sister Golden Hair,” “I Need You,’ “Ventura Highway,” “Don’t Cross the River,” “Tin Man,” and “Lonely People”–were considered cornerstones of the 1970’s Top 40 and FM rock radio.

The Guess Who, presented by Latshaw Productions

As the house lights fade down and the stage spots flair up, the sounds of rock and roll with classic sensibilities and progressive nuances permeate the crowd. At first a familiar chord strikes everyone’s attention, then comes a catchy chorus followed by a memorable solo or remarkable moment of improvisation. Such an ear-pleasing arsenal carries into a non-stop evening of precise performance taking fans on a roller coaster ride of electric instrumentation, timeless balladry, unpredictable jamming and the ultimate sing-a-long experience. It’s a position held by a troupe of true musical luminaries who through over four decades in show business have been loaded with more hits than members can count, record sales well into the multi-millions and more drama than a VH1 “Behind the Music” episode and an E! “True Hollywood Story” documentary combined.

The name is none other than The Guess Who, a group that’s connected with the masses throughout an exultant hit parade including “These Eyes,” “Clap For the Wolfman,” “Hand Me Down World,” “No Time,” “Star Baby” and “Share the Land.” Add in fellow classics and double sided singles like the rock anthem “American Woman” and “No Sugar Tonight,” plus “Laughing” and “Undun,” and the Canadian-bred stateside conquerors are amongst music’s most indelible treasures who are eternally etched into the very fabric of pop culture history.

“You’re going to see an excellent version of the songs and hear exactly how they should sound or be played,” verifies founding member and original drummer/songwriter Garry Peterson. “We’re coming at a new generation of fans who are seeing how the band can execute with enthusiasm. And we’re also making sure the respect level remains at an all-time high for how the music was initially recorded and remains at an all-time high for the fans who have been with the band from beginning.”

Joining Peterson onstage are veteran musicians keyboard player/flutist Leonard Shaw, lead guitarist Will Evankovich, bass legend Rudy Sarzo, and lead vocalist/guitarist Derek Sharp. Together the quintet annually launches an ambitious North American tour to adoring audiences and selling out venues with their awe-inspiring execution, deft meticulousness and decades of radio penetrating smashes.

Tracy Byrd and Aaron Tippin, presented by Big Time Entertainment, LLC

Big Time Entertainment, LLC presents Tracy Byrd and Aaron Tippin live on the Canton Palace Theatre stage.

Tracy Byrd

Tracy Byrd became a household name on the Country Music Scene in 1993 when his third single, called “Holdin’ Heaven”, off of his MCA Records, self-titled debut album, hit #1 on the Billboard Country Charts. The Album also included the remake hit of Johnny Paycheck’s “Someone to Give my Love to” cementing Byrd as a Traditional Country Troubadour!! The Debut Album went on to be certified Gold, a reward signifying sales in excess of 500,000 copies.

Through all of these years Byrd became a promoter favorite on the road, performing over 4000 exciting shows across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Australia from 1992 until 2009!  He then say’s he needed a break to take care of himself and his most precious thing, his family, wife Michelle, daugter Evee, and son’s Logan and Jared, who had taken a backseat to his career for year’s. He did not perform from 2010-2013, but in 2014 he got back to the music with a new band and a new found sobriety and love of the thing he enjoys so much.  Say’s Byrd, “These day’s my life has great balance, with my music being a part of it, not all of it.  I can honestly say I have never enjoyed it more!!”

Aaron Tippin
Twenty-Five years – a huge career accomplishment, especially in the music business. Aaron Tippin – who marks his silver anniversary as a recording artist this year – admits that he looks at his career longevity with a little bit of amazement.

“I think about it and go ‘Wow. What am I doing still here?’  I look at the flight that we took off in,” referring to his fellow newcomers at the time of his career launch. “A lot of them are gone, it seems. Some quit by choice. Some ran out from under it, but to be here twenty-five years doing it, I am the luckiest hillbilly that ever lived.”

Dwight Yoakam, presented by Latshaw Productions

Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, and he is a 21-time nominated, multiple GRAMMY Award winner. He has 12 gold albums and 9 platinum or multi-platinum albums, with five of those albums topping Billboard’s Country Albums chart and another 14 landing in the Top 10. Nearly 40 of Yoakam’s singles have charted on Billboard, with 14 peaking in the Top 10.

Yoakam’s self-curated SiriusXM channel, titled Dwight Yoakam and The Bakersfield Beat ‘Where Country Went Mod’, will launch in late April. The channel celebrates the Bakersfield sound and those whom it has inspired, including Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Wynn Stewart, Tommy Collins, The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Eagles, The Blasters, Lucinda Williams, and more. It encompasses all that is California country and country rock, in all of its various and varietal hybrid forms, from Ricky Nelson to Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. The channel includes artists from the movement in LA in the early to middle ‘80s that Yoakam broke out of and features bands as diverse as X, Lone Justice and Los Lobos. This movement was encapsulated on the series of albums titled A Town South of Bakersfield and has led variations over time to the current continuing country scene in LA, all of which Yoakam has dubbed as a segment for his channel entitled “That Town South of Bakersfield: From Cow Punks to Now Punks”.

In 2016, Yoakam released his bluegrass album Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars… on Sugar Hill Records. Featuring a band of bluegrass luminaries, this album boasts a collection of reinterpreted favorites from his catalogue, as well as a cover of Prince’s “Purple Rain”. Produced by nine-time GRAMMY winner Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton), Jon Randall (songwriter of “Whiskey Lullaby”), and Yoakam himself, and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge, this album reflects the love for bluegrass music that Yoakam developed at an early age in Kentucky and that has inspired him for many years thereafter.

In addition to his musical career, Yoakam is a formidable film and television actor who has appeared in over 40 feature films, including Sling Blade and Panic Room. In 2016, he recurred in David E. Kelley’s Amazon series Goliath. Recently, he appeared in director Steven Soderbergh’s film Logan Lucky with Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig. Yoakam is capable of seamlessly melting into his roles and impressively standing toe-to-toe with some of the world’s top thespians over the course of his storied and successful acting career, including Jodie Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, Jared Leto, Forest Whitaker, and Matthew McConaughey.

Opening Act: Co. Townes.

Local, Live 2023: Ravenwood

The Canton Palace Theatre presents Local, Live, a concert featuring Ravenwood.

TRIUMPH. OVER. ADVERSITY.

This is the driving force behind Ravenwood, fronted by Joe Vitale Jr. For the past 2 ½ decades, Joe has been clawing his way through the jungle-like terrain of the music scene—even if it means he has to crawl. But one thing’s for certain– with his blend of alternative rock &industrial, Ravenwood is poised to lead the aural revolution.

This isn’t cookie-cutter music from a sound-a-like artist. Ravenwood, an alternative rock band out of Akron, Ohio, is unique– out-of-the-box honesty with no B.S. Joe has taken life’s knocks, heartache, disappointment, falsehoods, doubt and frustration– rolled-up his sleeves, and turned it all into a message of strength on Ravenwood’s debut album “Ravenous” released in 2021.

Joe’s positivity, his faith and beliefs are woven throughout his critically acclaimed albums, including his solo albums. Music is in his blood. Maybe literally. This multi-instrumentalist is the son of legendary rock drummer Joe Vitale, and spent his early years cutting his teeth on the road with Joe Walsh, The Stephen Stills Blues Band, and Crosby, Stills and Nash. Joe is currently the backup drummer for Donnie Iris & the Cruisers.

Ravenwood just released their newest album “Ravenous” & is available on all streaming & download platforms & on CD. Their new acoustic album “Unsympathetic Vibrations” is set to release soon.
