Terri Gibbs and Friends

  • Imperial Theatre

 
 

The Lions Club of Augusta will host “Terri Gibbs and Friends” – a benefit concert for Augusta University’s James and Jean Culver Vision Discovery Institute – at 6:00 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at the Imperial Theatre. www.culvervdi.org 

The Grammy-nominated performer in country and contemporary Christian music genres was raised in Augusta and graduated in 1972 from Butler High School. Gibbs, 63, is best known for the 1981 hit single Somebody’s Knocking. The song reached No. 8 on U.S. country charts, No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 on the Adult Contemporary chart. A year later, Gibbs’ single Ashes to Ashes made the Top 20 hit on the country charts as did her 1983 song Anybody Else's Heart but Mine.

Gibbs, who grew up singing in the church choir, returned to Christian music in the late 1980s, releasing several albums, including the Grammy-nominated Turn Around. She released her sixth and most recent album, Sum It All Up, in June.

Gibbs was named Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music in 1980 and was the inaugural winner of the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award in 1981. In 2012, Gibbs received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Artists Music Guild. 

Blind since childhood, Gibbs is using her fall performance to raise awareness of degenerative eye diseases.  Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Culver Vision Discovery Institute and its research into new treatments and therapies for patients suffering from blindness and visual disorders.

Since 1971, when Lions Clubs International was founded, clubs like the Lions Club of Augusta have worked on projects designed to prevent blindness, restore eyesight and improve eye health and eye care for hundreds of millions of people worldwide

 
 

Justin Townes Earle

  • Imperial Theatre


 
 
 
 

Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in thirty-two short years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell. His fifth album (and first ever on Vagrant Records) serves as the perfect platform for such narrations.

Entitled Single Mothers, the album is comprised of ten tracks that showcase exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana. As a recently married, sober man JTE writes from a point of maturity and content we’ve not seen before on past records. “One day I just realized it’s not cool to die young, and it’s even less cool to die after 30,” Justin states as he reflects on a life past and his newly found clarity. What he’s created is an album that’s raw, honest and personal in a way he hasn’t touched upon since his debut.

When Push Comes to Shove

  • Imperial Theatre

   

 

Presented by Raisin AJ Productions

 

After months of counseling sessions with their self-help coach, Pat Chante’, a perplexed “common-law married” mother of four and Eunice, a married devout Christian, agree to attend a self-healing retreat with hopes of bettering themselves to better their marriages.  

 

After their usually detailed therapist Dr. Hannah messes up the group booking, the ladies end up at a party resort where solidarity is at the least. Tensions begin to flare when they run into Olivia White; a chaotic old friend.  She’ll become the driving force behind drama and confessions that lead to secrets being revealed.  

 

These four women will soon realize that the love they have for the men in their lives, may be greater than the love they have for themselves.  And after Dr. Hannah’s deepest secret is revealed, everyone must attempt to put their differences aside and come together to help each other make the right decision… whether to choose love over life. May seem like an easy choice, but these ladies need you to help them choose Saturday November 11th, 2017 at the historic Imperial Theatre in Augusta, GA.   

 

“When push comes to shove”, is a dramatic yet comedic stage play that for the first time in a Raisin AJ Production will allow the audience to interact with cast members for an explosive mind blowing experience filled with laughter, mixed emotions and live entertainment that will be well worth the watch.
