The Tybee Post Theater presents Tybee City Limits with Jason Bible and The Train Wrecks, CcWitt and Lyn Avenue, and singer/songwriter Sarah Poole
It’s the first installment of our new monthly music series, Tybee City Limits, the Best in Live Local Music, which will quickly become the most talked-about local music programming on the coast. Each month Tybee City Limits, modeled after the long-running Austin City Limits television show, will feature three acts– a singer/songwriter and two of the Coastal Empire’s hottest bands — under one roof in one great show!
This week’s show opens with the talented singer/songwriter Sarah Poole from Savannah. Poole’s a self- taught musician with a smokey indie/folk voice that can’t quite be compared to anyone else. She says some of her influences include Nirvana, Stevie Nicks, Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, and First Aid Kit.
Savannah country band Lyn Avenue fronted by the dynamic Cc Witt is up next. Lyn Avenue officially began in 2010 as a pop-rock band playing the basements of Savannah. It wasn’t until 2011, when lead singer Witt, wrote the song “Everyday Guardian Angel,” a pure country ballad, that audiences truly started to take notice. Since then, the band has been enthusiastically embracing their southern roots.
Lyn Avenue was a contender in the GA Music Awards, nominated for “Best Country Band” in 2013 and again in 2014. The band’s latest album titled “The Other Side” produced by Justin Murray, melodically illustrates their country influences with eccentricity and charm.
And, finally, the enormously popular Train Wrecks, who offer up raucous and rollicking Americana and were recently voted Savannah’s best country/Americana band by Connect Savannah. The Train Wrecks are a hard-working band of songwriters and performers.fronted by Jason Bible, who love nothing more than good songs and a good show. They deliver a dynamic, original blend of Americana, ranging from outlaw alt-country and bluegrass to rootsy rock and beyond, all with a distinctive Southern swagger. They’ve opened for legends like Jerry Jeff Walker and BB King, and have been dubbed the Hardest Gigging Band in Savannah.
Our MC is Thomas Oliver, host of the monthly Savannah Songwriters Series, a songwriters-in-the-round show the first Sunday of every month at Johnny Harris Restaurant in Savannah. WRHQ’s 105.3 Quality Rock is promoting Tybee City Limits and will broadcast segments of the show on its Second Sunday podcast.
Our concession stand offers beer, wine, soft drinks and fresh hot popcorn, so come early, get a drink and hold onto your seat!
Tickets are $10 general admission, $9 for Theater members. Doors open at 7:30 pm. Get your tickets in advance by clicking here!
THE LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS, NOV. 6-7
The Tybee Post Theater proudly presents the first theatrical production ever in the newly restored and reopened landmark theater — Neil Simon’s comedy “The Last of the Red Hot Lovers” — in a limited two-night opening run Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday, Nov. 7.
The Tybee Arts Performing Society’s production stars Tybee favorites Renee DeRossett and Kim Trammell, and introduces newcomers to the Tybee stage Raina Bass and Joshua Stafford. The show is being directed by Dr. Ronnie Stilton, who also directed TAPS’s production of the comedy “Kitchen Witches” last year.
Simon’s hilarious comedy is set in a Manhattan apartment in the 1960s and centers around poor Barney Cashman, a middle-aged, married nebbish, who wants to join the sexual revolution before it’s too late. A gentle soul with no experience in adultery, he fails miserably in each of three attempted seductions with three very different gals!
Hugely popular on Broadway, the show opened in 1969 at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre and ran for two years and 706 performances.
The Tybee Post Theater hosts the two opening nights of this production before it moves to the Tybee Arts Center, Nov. 17-23.
Post Theater Tickets, $20 Reserved Seating; $18 Theater members. Doors open at 7:30; show begins at 8 pm. This is reserved seating and likely to be a sell-out. We recommend getting tickets in advance.
