Date: Saturday, April 25, 2020 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM

Venue: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

This theatrical concert work brings the music and the story of the great Ray Charles to vivid life! Portraying Ray, master pianist/vocalist, Kenny Brawner leads his 12 piece orchestra and three vocalists (a la the Raelettees), performing this American legends most popular hits: “What’d I Say?”, “I got A Woman”, “Mess Around”, “Georgia On My Mind”, a blazing hot duet on “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, and many more! The music is interwoven with monologues depicting how gospel, blues, jazz and country influenced Ray’s style, while also reflecting on American social history, his epic battle with drugs, and his triumphant return home to Georgia. A great way to celebrate National Jazz History Month.
