Get your dancin’ boots on and slide on over to the Elks Theatre on Friday night for two hours of high-energy country music, celebrating the talents of best-selling country artists The Dixie Chicks.
Dixie Chix: A Tribute Concert features the singing talents of international performers Heather Stricker, Chelsee Hicks, and Janée Page and includes a band filled with some of Arizona’s best musicians – Adam Ackermann (drums), Sabra Faulk (bass and vocals), and AZ Blues Hall of Famers Mitzi Cowell (guitar and dobro) and Heather Hardy (fiddle). The show takes place at the Elks Theatre and Performing Arts Center on Friday, October 18. The show is produced by Khris Dodge Entertainment in partnership with E3- Every Era Entertainment.
E3’s co-founder Stricker has a longtime affinity for the group, which led her to create this show with business partner Mike Yarema. “I have always loved the Dixie Chicks’ music,” says Stricker. “They are amazing storytellers and performers, and the way their voices blend has always appealed to me as a singer. They remind me a lot of the female USO groups such as the Andrews Sisters.” This is fitting, as both Stricker and Hicks perform in The Manhattan Dolls, a swing-style female vocal trio founded and run by Stricker.
“We strongly encourage dancing!” exclaims Stricker. “We’ll be doing some moves on stage, and we’ve heard that Elks audiences love to hit the dance floor, so we invite all attendees to join in.” Song choices for the evening will include hits such as Some Days You Gotta Dance, Travelin’ Soldier, Cowboy Take Me Away, Goodbye Earl, Sin Wagon, and many more.
Dixie Chix: A Tribute Concert is produced by Khris Dodge Entertainment in cooperation with Every Era Entertainment. Tickets for the concert are available by calling 928-777-1370 or by going to Prescott Elks Theatre. Ticket prices range from $22-30.
