Although best known for its spectacular theater productions, Tuacahn Center for the Arts continues to make quite a name for itself as a fantastic place to enjoy live music. With its striking red rock backdrop and the wide range of musical genres represented, performers and audiences alike know that when they come to see a concert at Tuacahn, the experience will be unforgettable.

“We really go for variety and quality performances that will allow people to come and have a great time,” says Jeff Martin, concert programmer for Tuacahn.

You don’t get much more variety than a lineup that includes a tribute to David Bowie one night, and the popular tenor trio Gentri boasting a cinematic pop style on another.

It’s the kind of lineup that has something for everyone — and you’ll probably want to see more than one.

David Brighton’s Space Oddity: The Ultimate David Bowie Experience — Nov. 7

In the entertainment world, David Bowie is known as much as an innovator as he is a musician. His career could be defined as a “metamorphosing journey,” taking fans on a ride from a space-aged rock idol to a polished mainstream media star.

Now, thanks to Space Oddity: The Ultimate David Bowie Experience, audiences at Tuacahn can witness this multi-media spectacle, highlighting Bowie’s timeless classics that changed the face of pop culture.

This musical tribute is led by the talented David Brighton, who is credited for being “the world’s best David Bowie impersonator,” having performed world-wide with a charisma and vocal prowess that leaves people wondering if it isn’t really Bowie himself.

This stunning note-for-note theatrical concert event takes place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 7. Tickets start at just $15. Log onto www.tuacahn.org for more details.

The Fab Four: The Ultimate Tribute — Nov. 8

Given the opportunity, what music lover wouldn’t want the chance to relive the glory days of a live concert with The Beatles? Sadly, such a reality is no longer possible, but The Fab Four: The Ultimate Tribute gets you about as close as you could ever be to the real deal.

This Emmy-award winning foursome is revered above all other Beatles tribute bands for their precise attention to detail. You’ll think you’ve been taken back in time as you hear the record-perfect performances of Beatles favorites including “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Yesterday,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Hey Jude” and more.

Gentri: The Gentlemen Trio — Nov. 9

With the power of three dynamic tenors, Gentri — short for The Gentlemen Trio — will quickly captivate audience’s hearts and imaginations during their Nov. 9 Tuacahn performance.

Emerging as a group in June 2014, Brad Robins, Casey Elliott and Bradley Quinn are pioneering a signature sound they call “cinematic pop” — a transfusion of lush, epic orchestrations and rich, dynamic three-part harmonies all composed by the group’s producer, Stephen Nelson.

In the trio’s relatively short lifespan, they’ve managed to make a big name for themselves, sharing the stage with world-renowned talent including Kristin Chenoweth, Alfie Boe, Idina Menzel, Journey, Blondie and One Republic.

This one-night performance is nearly sold out, but call the box office at 435-652-3300 to see what tickets remain.
