Settle in for powerful music events

Arts in the Park Concert (23)
Manhattan hits impeccably melodious notes as 2017 stretches into February. Multiple music venues couple with eclectic styles to produce immaculate musical harmonies. Music fans, you can get started Thursday at Auntie Mae’s, with a local trio of musicians known as the Manhattan Mob, a funk-disco group headed by locally-acclaimed Madame Groove.

Then switch styles and settings as Liquid Art Winery picks up the torch with live music from solo acoustic guitarist Adam Capps. Go for a triple dip with Friday shows at Manhattan Arts Center and The Hat in Aggieville. The local legends of laying down the blues, Red State Blues Band plays an evening gig at the MAC. Will Clark Green has built a growing tour presence throughout the Midwest and will play at The Hat with a late Friday show.

For another change of pace, Dueling Pianos is the featured act Saturday at the Columbian Theatre in Wamego. Finally, Stoney LaRue makes his way west from Nashville with a Saturday country show at The Hat.

Next week’s McCain Performance Series show shifts into yet another gear with the Broadway musical hit Pippin, a show laced with acrobatics and soaring songs from the composer of the musical “Wicked”.

Five days, seven shows in six different venues. The good news? You don’t have to stray far from Manhattan for epic entertainment. The MAC and The Hat feature more music shows later in February, and Purple Masque theater on the K-State campus will showcase Little Apple Smooth Jazz on Feb. 18.
