The Jubilee Christmas Tour

Chenery Auditorium, 714 South Westnedge, Kalamazoo, MI 49007
The Jubilee Christmas Tour features three of Southern Gospel Music’s most recognized artists, The Booth Brothers, Greater Vision and Legacy Five. The 2014 Christmas Jubilee Tour will begin on Wednesday, December 4, at 7:00 pm, at Chenery Auditorium in Kalamazoo, MI, and continues through December 15 at select cities spread across the US and Canada.
What began as a light-hearted lunch conversation between three friends, has become one of the most popular concert tours in Gospel Music. Managed and promoted exclusively by IMC Management, The Jubilee Christmas Tour brings three of the most popular groups in Southern Gospel Music together for a unique and unforgettable concert experience. The event has proven to be very popular in cities across the United States, and has enjoyed sell-out concert attendance in numerous cities. In 2012, the three artists united to release the Jubilee Christmas recording, and in 2013, added an acappella recording featuring incredible 10-part harmonies on your favorite Christmas selections.
The unscripted and spontaneous format is both entertaining and inspirational, providing audiences with a most enjoyable, must-see evening. You'll sing-along on many of your favorite Christmas songs, as well as hear some newer, soon-to-be Christmas Classics. You'll laugh til you cry as you watch "Rodney G's saxophone solo, and "Howie's Red-Neck Snow Machine." You'll also be inspired by Ronnie Booth's reading of The Christmas Story. This Christmas concert is a great way to introduce your family and friends to the music you love, and the real meaning of Christmas.

Their songs and recordings have received awards and nominations from the Dove Awards, Singing News Fan Awards, the Southern Gospel Music Guild Harmony Honors, the BMI Awards and SGN Music Awards. Each member of the Talleys has received individual honors for their work.

Craig Morgan

Wagon Wheel Theatre, 2515 E Center Street, Warsaw 46580
There is no one like him. Craig Morgan's resume is one of the most varied and impressive on earth---soldier,sheriff's deputy, EMT, adventurer, TV host, motocross racer, outdoors man, farmer, family man.And then there is the career that ties it all together.
"Music is like a center for all those things," says the man known as one of country's best singers and songwriters since "Almost Home" put him on the map in 2002.
So it's no surprise that his new Black River Entertianment CD The Journey (Livin' Hits), which includes eight of his top hits and four powerful new tracks, is as much autobiography as musical statement.

Craig's catalog includes working class anthems like "Redneck Yacht Club", International Harvester" and "More Trucks Than Cars"; real-life songs like "Tough" and "This Ole Boy"; and one that hits on pretty much every theme Craig brings to the table--"Little Bit of Life." Then there is "That's What I Love About Sunday," a six-week chart topper whose love of American life in the biggest and smallest senses made it the most-played song in 2005; "Wake Up Lovin' You" and many more.

Smooth Jazz with Bryan Lubeck

The Homestead 1835, 33771 Chicago Trail, New Carlisle, Indiana 46552
Enjoy a night of Spanish guitar and urban rhythms at the unique setting of this beautifully restored historic wood barn at The Homestead 1835, featuring Smooth Jazz with Bryan Lubeck and a live six-piece ensemble.
Bryan Lubeck was known as "one of the top unknown artists" in the industry until he released Tuscan Sky in 2013 and spent 16 weeks on the Smooth Jazz radio charts top 40. Two songs from the album were ranked in the top 100 of Smooth Jazz for 2013. The Goshen native describes his style as “Spanish guitar and urban grooves, a combination of layers.
When I play live I have a six piece band, me on guitar, rhythm guitar, keyboardist, bass player, drummer and a Latin drummer, and a sax player. It’s not a recital. We crank out some cool high-strumming stuff and full-band versions of classical guitar with funk, and we try to deliver an experience.”
Tickets are $15.
