[ARCHIVED] Hot Country Nights in Parker


The world premiere of a new show created for the Parker Arts, Culture and Events (PACE) Center will bring “Hot Country Nights” to Parker. COUNTRY IS, The Music of Mainstreet celebrates uniquely country music resonating with simple, honest stories of yearning, love, joy, hard-working, hard-living, hard-playing people with a multi-talented Colorado cast of three and a sizzlin’ five-piece band.

COUNTRY IS, The Music of Mainstreet is on stage Jan. 27 through Feb. 12. The show stars Matt LaFontaine, Robert Johnson and Danielle Porcellini. Rick Seeber, the creator of 8-TRACK The Sounds of the '70s, Beehive The '60s Musical and A Brief History of White Music, has conceived and will direct this premiere musical concert.

“Country music fans will especially love the show because of the great songs from artists like Johnny Cash, George Strait and Sugarland,” said Jeannene Bragg, Cultural Director of the PACE Center. “The show is sure to entertain with a nod to Parker’s country heritage.”

To kick things off on the show’s opening night, Jan. 27, PACE is hosting a “Hot Country Nights” party.
