Topping last years Gala Dinner entertainment by Third Coast Kings was going to be tough! The dance floor was full and they played two encores (and joked about running out of material!). So for 2015 we knew the pressure was on!
We wanted someone that was really special. Someone that has played with the greatest names out there. And then we found him.
Al Copley. Let that settle in.
He’s played with some great performers, such as the original Blues Brothers, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Vaughan, Bob Dylan, BB King, Lou Rawls, the The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ruth Brown, Jimmy Witherspoon, Snooks Eaglin, John Hammond Jr., Big Mama Thornton, George “Harmonica” Smith, Otis Rush, Big Walter Horton, Helen Humes, Benny Waters, Hal Singer, Arnett Cobb, Scott Hamilton, Big Jay McNeely, Roy “Good Rockin” Brown – just to name a few.
One catch: We can’t put the baby grand up on the stage (which is set on temporary risers).
Solution: Put the entire band (piano, horns, sax, bass and guitar) right in the middle of the dance floor.
Entertainment in the round. Surrounded by hundreds. Sponsored by Revizto.
It’s going to be incredibly special.
So in addition to the best speakers, delegates, sponsors and exhibitors in the BIM / AEC community…we’ve got Al Copley and his band for #RTCNA’s Gala Dinner. And the only way to be part of this years extraordinary event is to register! Don’t wait – head over here:
Now if we could just get Al to promise not to stand on the piano!
