Upcoming Events

Heart By Heart Featuring Original Members Of Heart

Rock
Gesa Power House Theatre presents Heart by Heart in concert on Saturday, July 6 at 7:00 p.m. Steve Fossen and Michael Derosier, bassist and drummer for the band Heart during the 1970s and early 1980s, are now touring as Heart By Heart. The band also features vocalist Somar Macek, guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Lizzy Daymont and guitarist Chad Quist. Heart By Heart presents a powerful, dynamic show that includes all the favorite Heart hits as well as deep album cuts that fans will love. Fossen and Derosier are the powerful driving engine behind Heart’s classic hits like “Barracuda”, “Straight On”, “Crazy On You”, “Magic Man”, “Even It Up”, “Dog & Butterfly”, “Heartless”, “Kick It Out”, and more. First formed by Steve Fossen in 1969, Heart went on to release six top-10 albums and landed 20 hit singles on the Billboard top 40 chart. In recognition of their contributions to these iconic recordings, and to Heart’s first seven years of national and international touring, Fossen and Derosier were inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with the rest of the original Heart lineup in 2013. Reserved seating tickets ($40-$30) are available online at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Menopause The Musical

Musical
Pacific Power presents the Off-Broadway touring production of "Menopause The Musical" at Gesa Power House Theatre with five performances August 1-4. "Menopause The Musical" is a joyous celebration of women who are on the brink of, in the middle of, or have survived "The Change." Four women meet in a New York department store at a lingerie sale with nothing in common but a black lace bra...and memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, not enough sex, too much sex, and more! This hilarious musical parody is set to classic tunes from the '60s, '70s and '80s. "Menopause The Musical," now in its eighteenth year of production, is recognized as the longest-running scripted production in Las Vegas and entertains audiences nightly at Harrah's Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. The Off-Broadway touring version has entertained audiences in more than 450 US cities, nearly 300 international cities, and in 15 countries. Performances of "Menopause The Musical" will be August 1, 2, and 3 at 7:00 p.m. and August 3 and 4 at 2:00 p.m. Reserved seating tickets ($47-$35) are available online at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

George Winston

Jazz, Folk, Pop, Classical
Gesa Power House Theatre presents “An Evening with George Winston” on Thursday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m. and on Friday, September 20 at 7:00 p.m. Celebrated pianist George Winston is undeniably a household name. He’s inspired fans and musicians alike with his singular solo acoustic piano songs for more than 40 years while selling 15 million albums. A tireless road warrior playing nearly 100 concerts annually, live performance for Winston is akin to breathing. Winston’s music is evocative, offering us all a chance to take a step back from our perpetually busy lives and let our minds adventurously wonder. George Winston’s classic albums, "Autumn" and "December," are perennial favorites, along with "Winter into Spring," "Summer," 2017’s "Spring Carousel – A Cancer Research Benefit," as well as two volumes of the compositions of Vince Guaraldi, two volumes of benefit albums for the Gulf Coast disasters, and six other solo piano albums. George Winston will release his 15th solo piano album, "Restless Wind," via Dancing Cat Records/RCA Records in May - a portrayal of Winston’s place in a chaotic world – his compositions extend solace with an idiosyncratic grace. Reserved seating tickets ($45) for this concert are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Pigs on the Wing: A Tribute to Pink Floyd

Cover/Tribute Band/Performer, Rock
Pink Floyd tribute band Pigs on the Wing returns to Gesa Power House Theatre with a new concert experience on Friday, October 11 at 7:00 p.m. The concert will feature a full performance of Pink Floyd's 1977 album "Animals" and a second full set highlighting Pink Floyd's Roger Waters-era catalog. Tracing its roots to a one-off performance in Portland in 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily developed a reputation for delivering a high quality, high energy take on Pink Floyd's music steeped in the Northwest's own rich musical heritage. All of the members of the band are seasoned veterans of the original rock scene and balance a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and importance of Pink Floyd's music in many fans' lives. The result is a sound and experience both refreshing in delivery and yet true to the original – something the band believes sets it apart from other Pink Floyd tributes. Pigs on the Wing has long considered "Animals" to be their defining experience of Floyd (not to mention the band's namesake) - and perhaps the album best suited to their own high energy take on Floyd's catalog.

Che Apalache

Bluegrass, Latin/Salsa
Che Apalache is a four-man Latingrass band based in Buenos Aires with members from Argentina, Mexico and the United States. Their style combines South American music and Bluegrass, ranging from vivid Latin rhythms to a cappella mountain gospel songs sung in four part harmony. The group’s founder is Joe Troop (fiddle), a North Carolina-born multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer who moved to Argentina in 2010. While patiently carving out a niche in the local music scene, Joe taught bluegrass and old-time music for a living. That’s how he met Pau Barjau (banjo), Franco Martino (guitar) and Martin Bobrik (mandolin), his most dedicated students. They quickly became picking buddies and in 2013 decided to form Che Apalache and hit the stage, initially as a bluegrass band, but eventually incorporating Latin American styles into their repertoire. Blending instrumental prowess with tight vocal harmonies, they have created an authentic blend of genres to reflect the nature of their lives.
