Papa Doo Run Run Why are surfers so cool? It’s the joyful beat of surf music! California’s legendary “beach party” band PAPA DOO RUN RUN, a six-man ensemble of musical talent steeped in early rock ‘n’ roll history, bring on the wave-crashing sounds and groove.

6/4

Composed of current and former band members of the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Frankie Valli and Brian Wilson, PAPA DOO RUN RUN has enjoyed a four-decade run. They’re honored members of the California Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and their recordings and live concert appearances – including two Olympics, seven Super Bowls and two U.S. presidential inaugurations – have earned them two gold records, Billboard Hot 100 listings and a Grammy nomination. PAPA DOO RUN RUN’S other accolades include an unprecedented 15-year run as the “Celebrity House Band” at Disneyland, major tours with the original Jan & Dean, and a two-decade performance relationship with the Beach Boys. They also appeared in the CBS-TV movie “Deadman’s Curve” and recorded the film’s soundtrack album. Their Spencer concert will include PAPA DOO hits, Surf era standards and early rock ‘n’ roll favorites like: “California Girls,” “Surfin Safari,” “Sherry,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Pinball,” “Brown Eyed Girl,” “Sloop John B,” “Eight Days A Week,” “Sweet Home Alabama”.... Feel the “Good Vibrations.”

WINE POURS • PLATED LOBSTER TAIL AND FILET MIGNON DINNER • LIVE AUCTION

The ever-evolving artful fundraiser known as “Taste of the Spencer” returns this 2022 season as a celebratory walk down memory lane. Twenty-five glorious years of Spencer history will be pours of fine wine and a savory lobster & filet mignon plated dinner vis-à-vis a live auction, steered by Texas State Champion Auctioneer Clay Golden. At the heart of this casual, yet tasteful celebration of performing arts, friendship, renewal and fun is the Spencer Theater’s special project “ASK,” perhaps the most critical fundraising goal amongst seasons past. At stake is the exterior of the Spencer’s 25-year-old heavy limestone tiles and the need for repairs and renovation. As with all architecturally dynamic structures (i.e. Sydney Opera House, Bass Hall, Carnegie Hall…), it will be an extensive and expensive project necessitated by time and climate. The goal is to maintain the overall beauty of the award-winning facility with expert removal and finish. Please enjoy the evening’s fellowship and help the “ASK” grow strong knowing you’re securing the full exterior of one of the most lauded building in New Mexico – inside which lives are continuously enriched. This will be the largest maintenance project in Spencer Theater’s history. The time is here! Get ready for a grand ol’ party – Cheers!

Saturday, June 25 at 8 pm, $45- $66 Southern Fried Chicken buffet at 6pm, $25 When Texas Playboys front man and fiddler Jason Roberts steps onto a stage and utters his first “AH-ha” of the evening, western swing fans know they’re seeing and hearing nothing less than the living embodiment of a musical tradition that stretches all the way back to 1933. That was the year the charismatic fiddler Bob Wills (19051975) and several other musicians formed Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys. History was made thereafter as their irresistible rhythms and ‘Ah-ha’ joy offered audiences a highly danceable musical mixture unlike any other. It was to be called western swing and Bob Wills was the king. “Faded Love,” “I Ain’t Got Nobody,” “St. Louis Blues,” “A Maiden’s Prayer,” “I’m Tired Of Living This Lie,” “Mexicali Rose,” “Osage Stomp,” “Sittin’ On Top Of The World,” “New San Antonio Rose,” “Bubbles In My Beer,” “Spanish Fandango”....

Following Wills’ passing in 1975, a group of ex-Playboys came together with the full blessing of the Bob Wills estate to keep the Bob Wills sound alive, continually packing dance halls with swinging cowboys. Today’s sound is true to trademark – as big, bright and brassy as ever! The current Texas Playboys group is led by two-time Grammy winner Jason Roberts, admired by thousands for his many years with the multi awardwinning swing band Asleep at the Wheel, including eight national tours actually playing Bob Wills in the Wheel’s touring musical-theatre production, “A RIDE WITH BOB.” Just like Wills’ original band, this group of Playboys includes some of the best swing musicians Oklahoma and Texas have to offer. The band’s Okies include trombonist Steve Ham, trumpeter Mike Bennett, drummer Tony Ramsey, fiddler Shawn Howe. The Texas contingent boasts guitarist Rick McRae, a veteran of George Strait’s Ace in the Hole Band, along with piano player Wayne Glasson, steel-guitarist Dave Biller, saxophonist Larry Reed, bassist Albert Quaid.

6/25

A seemingly endless stream of hits rolled out as Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys became one of the most popular touring & recording big band acts in the nation, and at their peak, playing dances to more than 10,000 people a week.

Since joining forces as a Christian gospel quartet in 2006, 2006 The Ball Brothers have rapidly made their mark in Christian music by finding a musical balance between the old and the new. They’ve won acclaim with #1 hit songs on Christian charts, and have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the industry: Casting Crowns, Mandisa, Jordan Feliz, The Gaither Vocal Band, Point of Grace, Jason Crabb and others.

The Ball Brothers mix divine musical styles into tight, four-part harmonies with their band. Each song is hand-

picked to be message-driven and theologically sound. Their goal is to spread the message of the Gospel and encourage believers of all ages, from the very young to the many greats among us. The guys have a popular Facebook series called, “Rollin’ with the Ball Brothers” that offers an inside look into their ministry. Lead vocalist Daniel notes, “We’re interested in showing everyone how God can use ‘normal’ people for His honor and glory.”

With over 100 million video views, The Ball Brothers are among the most popular quartets in Christian Music. Whether you know them from their viral video “It’s About the Cross” or on Facebook’s “Legendary Vocals,” The Ball Brothers continue their calling in concerts designed for patrons just like you!

In the 30 years thereafter, A1A has performed on stages around the world. They’ve also shined in concerts alongside Jimmy Buffett, with his Coral Reefer Band, and performed in the 2012 motion picture, What To Expect When You’re Expecting.

Pavlo is a mesmerizing guitarist performing a unique fusion of Greek, classical, flamenco, Latin, and Balkan flavorings wrapped in contemporary pop – an intoxicating amalgam that Pavlo simply Dubbed the “Greek God of Guitar” and the “Lord of the Strings” by critics and fans alike,

calls “Mediterranean music.”

Born in Toronto to Greek parents, Pavlo’s music has taken him all around the world. Forever driven

by his father’s famous words, “Have the courage to do what you love, and the drive to do it well,” Pavlo has won numerous awards and Juno nominations for his recordings, songwriting, live performances

and his four PBS TV specials. Along the way he has performed for royalty like Prince Charles, and has worked and toured with renowned artists such as José Feliciano, Jon Secada, Olivia Newton-John

and The Tenors. He’s released 15 albums of his own music, plus two collaborative projects, including

Guitarradas with Remigio Pereira of The Tenors, and Trifecta with fellow guitar masters Rik Emmett and Oscar Lopez.

Pavlo returns to the Spencer after filming his PBS TV concert special “Live in Santorini, Greece,” eagerly

sharing uplifting compositions of Mediterranean guitar with his world class band. Opa! (“Hurray!”)

Few entertainers can move and excite an audience like Tony Orlando – the multi award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, music executive, Broadway, film and television actor whose illustrious career spans five decades. A Vegas-styled showman through and through, Orlando has sold millions of records, including five #1 mega hits: “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round The Ole Oak Tree,” “Knock Three Times,” “Candida,” “My Sweet Gypsy Rose” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You),” and has enjoyed enormous success in all aspects of the entertainment industry. His CBS variety show “Tony Orlando and Dawn” (1974-77) was watched weekly by millions of fans. Still headlining in concerts around the world, the Platinum and Gold recording artist has 15 Top 40 hits, three American Music Awards, two People’s Choice Awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This distinguished Vocal Group Hall of Fame member has performed for five U.S. Presidents. He is one of few singers in our lives with a song that actually evolved into anthem status and an American wartime hymn: “Tie A Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Ole Oak Tree,” the #1 Billboard Song

Curry, whose voice was heard in the CBS-TV movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story, has performed Denver’s music in sold out shows throughout the country. His uncanny ability to mirror John’s voice and natural, clean-cut look takes you back to the time when “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine,” “Calypso” and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts, and his popular music propelled a sincere message of caring for the earth and caring for each other.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band remains one of the most accomplished bands in American roots music since its initial founding as a jug band in 1966. They went on to be one of the most iconic country-folk-rock bands in American musical history. The famed group stars JEFF HANNA (acoustic guitar, electric guitar), JIMMIE FADDEN (drums, harmonica), BOB CARPENTER (keyboards), JIM PHOTOGLO (bass, acoustic guitar), ROSS HOLMES (fiddle, mandolin), and JAIME HANNA (electric and acoustic guitar). And with the father-son pairing of Jeff and Jaime Hanna, the band carries on a country music tradition of blood harmony. The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band played their first ever gig in Southern California and by 1969 had become a cornerstone of the burgeoning country-rock community. Their career breakthrough came in 1970 with the release of the record Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy and the single “Mr. Bojangles,” a folksy Top 10 pop hit and immediate classic. While touring Nashville they developed a career-altering friendship with Earl Scruggs and formed invaluable connections with a number of country, folk, and bluegrass legends that helped them record the historic three-disc album Will the Circle Be Unbroken. Heroes like Roy Acuff, Mother Maybelle Carter, Jimmy Martin, Merle Travis, and Doc Watson joined the scruffy, young band to record country music standards such as “I Saw the Light” and “Keep on the Sunnyside.” The acclaimed project is considered a landmark recording in American music and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. So was their tune “Mr. Bojangles.”

N

itty Gritty Dirt Band found further acclaim on country charts with “An American Dream” and “Make

a Little Magic.” Those singles set the stage for a major run on country radio where they secured 16 Top 10 hits between 1983 and 1990, including three # 1 singles: “Long Hard Road (The Sharecropper’s Dream),” “Modern Day Romance,” and “Fishin’ in the Dark.” At the peak of their career, the band won three Grammys and a CMA Award for Album of the Year for their 1989 release Will the Circle Be Unbroken Volume II, a follow-up, all-star collaborative featuring Johnny Cash and June Carter-Cash, as well as Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm, John Hiatt, Bruce Hornsby, John Denver, Ricky Skaggs, New Grass Revival, and others. The album won three Grammys and a CMA Award for Album of the Year.

“Lonesome Traveler in Concert” is more than a stirring theatrical concert with outstanding musicians – it’s an American musical journey taking fans through the history of folk music from the 1920s- 60s. Poignant & patriotic, these were the decades when folk music was being played in the hills of Appalachia, and in the night clubs of New York City & San Francisco. It was a time of legendary artists like The Carter Family, The Kingston Trio, Lead Belly, Woodie Guthrie, Pete Seeger and The Weavers, Joan Baez, Peter, Paul and Mary, Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, and Odetta, and classics like “There’s A Meeting Here Tonight,” “Blowin’ In The Wind,” “Midnight Special,” “Puff, The Magic Dragon,” “Where Have All The Flowers Gone,” “When The Saints Go Marching In” and so many others. Lonesome Traveler is like watching a Ken Burns documentary on PBS.
