Today, Deanna Bogart is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist and multifaceted musician whose fans value the diversity of her genre-free zone. As a  bandleader/singer/songwriter/producer/pianist/sax player, Deanna combines the best of boogie-woogie, contemporary blues, country and jazz into a splendid blend she calls “blusion.”

Deanna’s fusion of blusion — spontaneous, sophisticated, fearless and fun — has garnered her three consecutive Blues Music Awards’ Horn Instrumentalist of the Year for 2008, 2009 and 2010 and an endorsement contract with Rico Reeds.

The Amazing Kreskin

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Doors 3:30pm | Show 4:00pm

No Children 10 & Under

Tickets: CAC Member $ 22.50 | Military $23.50 | Non-Members:$25.00

For over 50 years Kreskin has been telling people things about themselves that only they or a close friend could possibly know! He let’s the audience hide his check, and if he can’t find it he forfeits his fee. Plus Kreskin offers $1,000,000.00 to anyone that can prove that he employs paid secret assistants or confederates to help him perform his mentalist “effects.”

The fact that there are rumors, as well as apparent witnesses, experiencing the ghostly presence of spirits in Baltimore, Amazing Kreskin will reawaken that awareness and cause “sightings” of these spirits by audience members on the Theater stage. A show you’ll never forget.

Tickets: $20.00 Adults

Shenandoah Run is a nine-member classic and contemporary folk group and we have been performing in the Washington, DC area for three years. Each of the group’s members hails from Maryland or Virginia and their individual musicality, vocal and instrumental talent, as well as a strong desire to keep folk music alive and fresh, is key to the group’s success. Shenandoah Run blends vintage and contemporary folk music in a manner that appeals to all listeners.

We present the songs and sounds of American folk music, with an occasional infusion of songs from other lands and from the worlds of country and bluegrass. From the esoteric to the toe-tappingly familiar, our songs are treated to a lush vocal harmony and skillful instrumental backing that defines what is becoming our instantly recognizable sound. We present arrangements that are fresh, varied, and unique, while keeping with the spirit of the folk-music sound and we deliver it all with a chemistry that delights both audiences and we, the performer
