Attention folks in the Macon area:
The Big House Foundation and the Cox Capital Theatre are planning a “Stay and Play in Macon” concert series this summer.
The first concert, which will be held June 28, features the bluesy-jazzy down home boogie music of Col. Bruce & The Quark Alliance will be featured at the theatre located at 382 Second St. in downtown Macon. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the concert starts at 8 p.m. opening with a rare acoustic solo set by Eddie “The Gypsy Bluesman” Kirkland followed by Oh Dorian – Macon native indie pop and folk rock singer Heather Kemp.
The Cox Capital Theatre is located at 382 Second St. in downtown Macon.
In connection with the concert, the Macon Film and Video Festival (MAGA) and the Big House Foundation will present a special screening Sunday, June 29 at 4 p.m. at Cox Capitol Theatre of Billy Bob Thornton’s 1996 cult classic Sling Blade in which Hampton plays Morris, a song writing band manager.
Hampton got to know Thornton in the ’70s when Thornton was a drummer for the Arkansas band Los Tres Hombres. Twenty years later, Thornton created the Morris character based on Hampton and asked him to play the role. Following the screening, Hampton will participate in a question and answer session.
Tickets for the June 28 concert are $10 in advance for general floor and balcony seating and $15 day of show. A 20 percent military discount will be offered on general admission tickets with military identification.
Reserved cocktail seats are $20 per person. Also, 10 reserved tables of six will be available on the floor and four reserved boxes of six will be available at $250 each. The cost includes two buckets of beer. Food also will be available from the theatre’s regular menu.
Sling Blade tickets are $5 each at the door and include both the screening and the Q&A session. In keeping with the movie, French fries and mustard will be served.
For table reservations, contact the Cox Capitol Theatre at 478-257-6391. Table and ticket reservations can be purchased online at www.coxcapitoltheatre.com for an additional $2 per transaction, by credit card over the phone, at the box office Tuesdays-Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or at the door.
Net proceeds will benefit the historic Cox Capitol Theatre and The Big House Foundation, which is developing the Allman Brothers Band Museum.
Take care and know that you are loved,
Lana and Rowland
