THIS WEEKEND!! Saturday August 26th – NOYOKO plays the music of the Beatles

Saturday August 26th – 7 pm – tickets $20

NOYOKO are five Beatlemaniacs who grew up, on and around the music of The Beatles. Not a tribute band, NOYOKO honors the music of The Beatles by recreating their music live on stage as meticulously as possible. Consisting of five musicians who’ve spent countless hours in live performance and studio session work, NOYOKO strives to perform The Beatles music as close to the original sound, playing all the hits but specializing in the deep cuts and b sides you’ve probably never heard performed live. Members are Doug Lee, formerly of Dogwood, Hotfoot, Roadside and many others as well as a current member of The Paybacks. Tony Wachter, a thirty year veteran of the recording studio as engineer, producer and vocalist on countless recordings. Chris Byars, studio session drummer, educator and in demand live drummer. Mark Aaron Smith, from the groups Dogwood, Hotfoot, Hotel and many others. Greg Gentry, current Payback, Wringer and many other local ensembles. NOYOKO has the experience, the chops and the Chutzpah to pull off such an ambitious project as performing the timeless, classic music of The Beatles, selling out shows across the South East.

July & August Featured Gallery Artist Reception: Lee Raybon

SUNDAY JULY 9 1:30 – 3:30 pm — Leeds Theatre & Arts Center — Free!

Leeds Arts Council Artist Spotlight: Richard Lee Raybon, Jr.
Father of two, grandfather of five, I am happily married and retired and living in Vestavia Hills.

I’ve enjoyed doodling since I was in my teens but never pursued art seriously until my retirement about two years ago. My wife, Sue Ann, now calls herself an “art widow.” But she enjoys the results, too, and now often gives me ideas to try. We actually started off enjoying poetry and writing, still a great love of mine. I’m actually working on my fourth book of poetry—only this time I’m illustrating it myself.

Two years of self-taught practice has enabled me to adventure into several mediums including watercolor, acrylic, pastels, pencil, and ink. I also dabble in photo enhancements of my own work.
I’ve always enjoyed nature, so I draw most of my inspiration from the outdoors. And many species of the animal kingdom have found their way under my brush. I have not settled on any one style. I do realistic, impression, and abstract paintings and drawings. Art of any kind is fun and stimulating for me.
Most of my successful portraits of people have been with a pencil, although I have completed a few in watercolor.

Overall, I believe there’s artist in all of us. Just pick up a pen or pencil and give it a try!

Leeds Arts Council Summer Musical – Something Rotten!

Welcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten.  Created by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Wayne Kirkpatrick, and successful screenwriters Karey Kirkpatrick and John O’Farrell, Something Rotten was lauded by audience members and critics alike, receiving several Best Musical nominations and hailed by Time Out New York as “the funniest musical comedy in at least 400 years”.

Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.
