Casino Star presents Red Feather acoustic concert Feb. 6
The Casino Star Theatre continues their performance series with a free concert on Monday, Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. featuring a ’60s and ’70s folk music group, The Red Feather Acoustic Quartet.
Brian Thomas, Bill Ware and Jeff Whiteley who are the three singers of the Red Feather Acoustic Quartet have been playing together off and on since 1966. They are the remnants of an old garage band from the 1960s and showcase music from the golden eras of acoustic folk rock music featuring three-part harmonies, two guitars and a bass. Songs from the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, George Strait, Willy Nelson, James Taylor, Loggins & Messina, Jimmy Buffett and more will be highlighted on the program.
Members of the Red Feather Acoustic group are also the founders of the Utah based arts non-profit, Excellence in the Community. Excellence has produced over 1100 free concerts in the beehive state since 2012 with all shows featuring Utah based professional musicians. When the pandemic disrupted live concerts in 2020, Excellence moved to live stream concerts broadcast from the Gallivan Center in Salt Lake City. Those live streams have since received over 38 million views.
The Casino Star Theatre (CST) has provided both cinematic and live entertainment to Gunnison and its surrounding cities since 1913 and continues that tradition today as a non-profit organization dedicated to both the restoration of the historic building and its mission of bringing high quality arts and entertainment options to the citizens of the central Utah valleys.
The CST Live Performance Season is supported in part by local sponsorship partners ACT Aerospace, GTELCO Lightburst Broadband, Gunnison Valley Hospital, Gunnison Implement Company and State Bank of Southern Utah. The season continues with the Bulldogs Benefit concert featuring Snow College choir groups in March and the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s touring production of Every Brilliant Thing on April 15.
