A Night with Janis Joplin

From Broadway to Ivoryton, come share an evening with the Queen of Rock and Roll,    Janis Joplin.  Featuring such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of my Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” Cry Baby,” and “Summertime,” A Night with Janis Joplin, is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences —- Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith.

Janis Joplin was one of the biggest female rock stars of her era. In 1967, she rose to fame during an appearance at Monterey Pop Festival and she also appeared at the Woodstock festival and the Festival Express train tour. She released three albums and a fourth album was released after her death in January 1971. Joplin, highly respected for her charismatic performing ability, was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. Rolling Stone ranked Joplin number 46 on its 2004 list of 100 Greatest Artist of All Time.

So come join us for an “electrify” evening with “Janis Joplin”!!!  Tickets are $40.00 per person and will be available starting at the April meeting. Reservations are limited to 54 seats, so get your seats early!  I will be collecting the money until mid May and then Olga  will be taking over the ticket sales.
