Travis Tritt, Yes, Dave Mason to perform locally
Ron Gower/TIMES NEWS Country singer Travis Tritt brings his acoustic show to Penn's Peak on Saturday, Jan. 23.
Several new concerts have been added to the Penn's Peak schedule.
Coming to the Jim Thorpe venue are Travis Tritt, Yes, Dave Mason, and The Machine.
Meanwhile, tonight at Penn's Peak, Kenny G will be doing his Christmas show with the concert starting at 8 o'clock.
Tickets are on sale for the Tritt concert, which will be held on Jan. 23.
Tickets for Yes, Mason, and The Machine - a Pink Floyd tribute band - go on sale Saturday.
Yes will be at the concert hall on Feb. 5, Mason has a March 4 date, and The Machine is returning on March 27.
Tritt's concert will be unique as he does his acoustic show. He has done this show in Nashville and several other locations and has received great newspaper reviews.
Among his many hits are "Country Club," "Anymore," "T-R-O-U-B-L-E," and "Help Me Hold On."
In 1992 and again in 1998, Travis Tritt received the coveted Grammy Awards. In 1992, the Grammy was for his duet with Marty Stuart and in 1998 the Grammy was for a collaboration of more than 10 country music artists. Along with his musical talents, Travis has also acted in a few movies; The Cowboy Way, Sgt. Bilko, Fire Down Below and Blues Brothers 2000, just to name a few.
The English progressive rock band Yes was formed in London and been performing music for over 40 years. Throughout those decades, Chris Squire has been the one constant member.
Guitarist Peter Banks is the one responsible for the name Yes. His reasoning was that the three letters would stand out on posters. His rationale must have worked due to the popularity that Yes has achieved.
Hits by Yes include "Roundabout" and "Owner of A Lonely Heart."
The Machine always attracts large crowds whenever it comes to Penn's Peak.
America's top Pink Floyd show, The Machine has forged a 20 year reputation of excellence, extending the legacy of Pink Floyd, while creating another legacy all their own.
Over the years, The Machine has touched the hearts and souls of many, selling out large clubs and theatres across North and Central America, Europe and Asia. They have also appeared at renowned music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Riverbend, and Germany's Rock of Ages.
Known for performing a diverse mix of The Floyd's extensive 16-album repertoire (complete with faithful renditions of well known hits as well as obscure gems), The Machine's stellar musicianship, dramatic lighting and video, and their passionate delivery sets them above and beyond the rest.
