Otis Redding Music Camp Finale Concert
Whern: Friday Doors 6pm Show at 7Pm
Where: Cox Capitol Theatre Second Street
Cost: Suggested $10 donation
One of the coolest things we’ve done since starting the Creek is partner with the Otis Redding Music Camp. Every year, they help give 65 kids the skills they need to write better songs. We’ve hosted a bunch of them on Creekside Morning, and so far, every one has been mind blowing. Each year, the culmination of camp is a Concert at the Cox Capitol Theatre. This year they are doing an Allman Brothers tribute, an Otis Tribute, and we’ll get to hear the songs these kids have been working so hard on. I for one, Can’t Wait. They suggest a $10 donation, all of which goes to the Otis Redding Music Foundation. I suggest give all you can. IT’S FOR THE KIDS!

Theatre Macon Presents: Driving Miss Daisy
When: Friday June 16-SunDay June 25(Weekends 8pm Sunday Matinees 2:30)
Where: Tattnall Square Center for the Arts
This classic story is set in mid-century Atlanta, Driving Miss Daisy tells the story of an elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn. At first, Daisy is not happy about being forced to rely on a black man to get from one place to the next. Slowly though, Hoke wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play, the two develop a deep-rooted affection. This Pulitzer-Prize winning masterpiece is a delicate depiction of racial tensions, the passage of time, and the experience of aging. Theatre is not only a hobby of mine, but also a passion. Come support a great show produced by some of Central Georgia’s best talent.

Marcus King Band

At the ripe young age of 20, Marcus King has already established himself as one of the best touring acts around. A native of Greenville, South Carolina, this guitar shredding monster will be playing a private, intimate set at The Big House Museum, which has already sold out. Their self-titled album is available everywhere music is sold, and tracks like “Ain’t Nothing Wrong With That” and “Rita is Gone” are not to be missed (if you haven’t already heard them on The Creek). Hope you picked up your tickets early, so we can hang out on the lawn of The Big House all night!
