Transperformance 27: Rock N Roll Heaven Revisited


THE SHOW IS ON! TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE GATE

Each year in August the Northampton Arts Council and the Parent Teacher Organizations of Northampton’s public school system join forces to raise funds for arts enrichment in the schools and for the ArtsEZ grant program. Once again, on Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017 it’s time to celebrate our community and the arts with Transperformance 27: Rock N Roll Heaven Revisited, THE end-of-the-summer music festival at Pines Theater-Look Park.

The original concept for Transperformance was for local bands to take on a persona of another established nationally recognized act and perform or “Transperform” their bands’ style. The acts that are chosen are done thematically, such as Transperformance 22 “Food Groups” (Heather Maloney as Amy Winehouse) or Transperformance 24 “Off the Map” (Colorway as Boston) or Transperformance 23 “Beyond Bob” (Rusty Belle as Bob Dylan). Over the years Transperformance has evolved and tribute style performances have become acceptable if not the norm.

Back in 1994, The Northampton Arts Council presented Transperformance-Rock N Roll Heaven as the theme. After recently losing so many legendary performers and artists, Transperformance 27 will celebrate their lives with this year’s theme, “Rock N Roll Heaven Revisited!” Local acts will perform 10 minutes of material from the many legends who have passed away in the last 23 years. Legends can be anything from Chuck Berry to Johnny Cash or from Michael Jackson to Sharon Jones. Come celebrate 27 years of bringing our community members together to support music and the arts!
