DENNIS QUAID

Doors: 7:30pm   Show: 8:00pm

Audiences will experience the musicality and passion for playing live that have earned Quaid rave reviews. A riveting performer, Quaid captivates the audiences with engaging stories about his illustrious film career and stories behind the highly personal songs that will populate his forthcoming inspirational album set for release in 2022 via Gaither/Primary Wave.

During Quaid's lengthy shows, he covers some of his favorite songs from Jerry Lee Lewis as a tip of the hat to the "the Killer" who Quaid portrayed in the box office smash Great Balls of Fire!, displaying equal ease on the piano with rock 'n' roll classics as well as country standards with his acoustic guitar. Musically his shows encompass country and rock driven by his distinct vocals and anchored by his gift for telling compelling stories in his songwriting.
