The 209 area has a number of options for those looking to take in a show or concert this fall. Here are a few options to experience in November.
Laughter will flow at the Gallo Center for the Arts on Nov. 3 with a stand-up comedy performance by Sinbad. With a long résumé that includes television shows, voice overs, movies, music and of course comedy, Sinbad has been entertaining audiences since the early 1980s. Influenced by comics like Bill Cosby, Richard Pryor, Red Skelton, Jonathan Winters, Robin Williams, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, and Flip Wilson, Sinbad is sure to have the audience laughing. He is a mix of old school and new school, which he explained keeps him competitive in the business. He has all social media sites and will be hosting an entertainment podcast.
For those Monday blues, the masses can be entertained by Momix on Nov. 6, also at the Gallo Center. They are an internationally known company of dancers and illusionists under the direction of Moses Pendleton that will be performing “Opus Cactus,” bringing the landscape of the American Southwest alive. Pendleton was a dairy farmer in Northern Vermont and got involved with skiing, which included time skiing with an Austrian team. He was an English major at Dartmouth where he formed his first company of performers. He then created Momix, which has been in existence for 37 years and is a visual theatre company. The performance will have imagery with music, lights, and dance that paints a picture of a fantasy world.
Alabama will perform at the Stockton Arena on Nov. 10, bringing fans country favorites like “Dixieland Delight,” “Song of the South,” “Angels Among Us” and “Mountain Music.” They have had 21 number one singles over the years. Easton Corbin will be opening the show with his traditional country sound.
