Arts Alive: Saturday, October 17 @ 7 PM

Join Arts Alive on Saturday, October 17 at 7 PM for a high energy, crowd interactive experience. Savannah Jack will be performing at the Robinson/Olsson Auditorium and Fine Arts Center in West Point. From traveling throughout the Caribbean as a featured, headline act on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line to opening arena and large festival dates for Peter Frampton, John Fogerty, Vince Gill, The Doobie Brothers and the legendary Kenny Rogers, among others, Savannah Jack has honed their skills as outstanding live entertainers who captivate audiences from the very first note.

How do you describe this band from Nashville, Tennessee? Joe Guercio, Elvis Presley's longtime music and orchestra director, calls Savannah Jack "the absolute best band I've seen in music today." Savannah Jack, comprised of Don Gatlin, Jay Darby, and Matt Schumacher, is the preferred opening act for the legendary Kenny Rogers, having performed onstage with him in excess of 60 shows during the past few years.

They just finished recording their second studio album entitled, "Night of Your Life", which features special guests, Love and Theft, Ronnie McCoury of the Grammy Award Winning Del McCoury Band, Vince Gill, Grammy Award winning guitarist, John Jorgensen, and the incredible Michael McDonald.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors (65+), and $10 for students. Group rates are available at $15 each for groups of 10 or more.
