Join us for a jazzy, funky evening with The Victor Wooten Trio featuring Dennis Chambers and Bob Franceschini. Victor Wooten is considered one of the top bassist of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, Dennis Chambers is a notable jazz-fusion, funk, and Latin music drummer, and Bob Franceschini is an accomplished saxophonist, songwriter, and arranger featured on more than 200 albums.
Fans of soul, funk, and jazz should not miss Maceo Parker. The funk musician saxophonist who inspired both James Brown and Prince will be performing at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, joined by his band, the tightest little funk orchestra on earth.
The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is proud to announce that Lee Fields and The Expressions will be coming to the theater on Wednesday, March 1st.
Sometimes nicknamed "Little JB" for his physical and vocal resemblance to James Brown, Fields has toured the world with musical legends including Kool and the Gang, Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers, O.V. Wright, Darrell Banks, and Little Royal. And after 47 years on stage, he’s managed to somehow find a newer, younger audience and become even more prolific as the years transpire.
The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is proud to announce that The Olate Dogs will be coming to the theater on Wednesday, January 4th.
We can't say we've ever had this many dogs in the house, but we are excited to meet them all! The Olate Dogs won Season Seven of America's Got Talent, scooping up the $1,000,000 prize and headlining at The Palazzo in Las Vegas. Led by Richard Olate and his son Nicholas Olate, the Olate Dogs are a high-energy, fast-paced canine theatrical act filled with amazing dog tricks, human acrobatics, and humor.
