Wynonna & The Big Noise
Roots & Revival Tour
Sat. Oct 7, 2017 at 7:30 pm
Once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline,” Wynonna’s rich and commanding voice has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Five-time GRAMMY winner and New York Times best-selling author, Wynonna has received over 60 industry awards, with countless charting singles, including 20 No.1 hits such as “Mama He’s Crazy,” “Why Not Me,” and “Grandpa, (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Ole Days).”
“My roots are firmly planted in Country music, the music that has been a backdrop to the lives of so many of my fans,” says Wynonna. “But I was given wings and I’m grateful, after all this time, for the freedom to be myself and sing the music that I love.”
Wynonna, along with her band The Big Noise, will explore the past, present and future of Wynonna’s extensive 33-year career on the 2017 Roots & Revival Tour.
Wynonna & The Big Noise, led by husband/drummer/producer, Cactus Moser, released their debut full-length album in February 2016 via Curb Records to critical acclaim. Wynonna has described the new sound as “vintage yet modern” and a “return to the well.” It’s a rootsy work encompassing country, Americana, blues, soul and rock. NPR’s Ann Powers noted that, “With her tight band behind her after touring together for several years, she just sounds like she’s home…You can just feel the grin on her face.”

The Statesmen are Penn State's premier all-male a cappella group. Ranging from pop to R&B to classic Penn State songs, the Statesmen are a PSU Proud a cappella group that strives to provide a wide array of genres to their wonderful fans. What started out as an idea at a party in August of 2011 quickly became a staple of both the State College music scene as well as the entire Penn State culture. The Statesmen - originally called the JoePas - donned their rolled-up khakis and ties, performing at PSU football tailgates and other local events. Since then, the group has gone on to receive numerous accolades, including Second Place at the 2012 ICCA Semifinals and Outstanding Soloist for 2012 and 2013 ICCA competitions, among others. Under the direction of the first musical director Jim Hogan, the group was fortunate enough to release their self-titled album in the summer of 2012. The group has also had the opportunity to perform a song off of their debut album on national television (NBC's Today Show). Above all else, the Statesmen are a group of brothers who love each other and love to perform. Keep an ear open on the streets of College Avenue and around the area - you might just hear them performing!

Cirque Mechanics - Pedal Punk
Tue. May 2, 2017 at 7:30 pm
From the inventive Cirque Mechanics comes Pedal Punk, a “Steampunk” - inspired acrobatic whirlwind where cycling is the escape from technology obsessed society. In Pedal Punk we experience the excitement, artistry and thrill that occurs when a zany bike shop mechanic interacts with cyclists and bikes, and repairs more than broken pieces. He creates wondrous machines that come to live and inspires the cyclist in all of us to unite with our inner Pedal Punk.
Creative Director Chris Lashua spent most of his career on a BMX bike and inside a German Wheel. This new production showcases his innate passion and fascination for all things bicycles and cycling. The synergy between man and machine, the hallmark of Cirque Mechanics, is magnificently exposed in Pedal Punk. It is that synergy that The New York Times called “exceptional, evocative, eye-catching and grossly entertaining…in a word, excellent.”
The Branford Marsalis Quartet with special guest Kurt Elling
Thu. Apr 20, 2017 at 7:30 pm
The Branford Marsalis Quartet will be joined by guest-vocalist Kurt Elling in a singular collaboration of musical forces. The tight-knit working band featuring Marsalis on saxophones, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Justin Faulkner on drums rarely invites other musicians into the folds of their nearly telepathically cohesive unit, and Elling’s deep jazz vocabulary, technical versatility, and outstanding intonation will enable the band to perform a variety of material in new ways.
Energized by the artistic promise of this collaboration, the band members have all contributed new arrangements to perform with this special line-up and will be looking beyond the Great American Songbook. Although following the format of a standard jazz quartet with vocals, the collaboration between jazz’s most intense band and one of jazz’s foremost singer should prove to be anything but standard.
