Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Band Back at the EKT


Skynfolks will returns to the Emma Kelly Theater on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. SkynFolks was formed as a result of some very devoted musicians who wanted to bring a little more to the game than what they’d seen from Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute bands. They knew how discriminating real Skynyrd fans can be so they set their performance bar high......really high. Brought together by luck, fate, devotion and drive, the original “Core4”, consisting of the three guitarists and bassist, worked to craft with the utmost discrimination exact replications of the music of Gary Rossington, Allen Collins, Ed King, and Leon Wilkerson. Every part is played exactly like the original recordings. Totally authentic and completely accurate.

Behold Here Cometh the Dreamer Returns After Year Hiatus


Behold Here Cometh the Dreamer returns to the Emma Kelly Theater on January 21 at 7:30 p.m. Recognizing the importance of original writing in our society, this series has become an annual favorite bringing together young emerging writers and poets with established spoken word artists such as educators Derrick Bailey, Kimberly Foxx, and Dr. Lindamichelle Baron. The evening is structured to give the young writers / rappers a chance to perform their works and, after intermission, an opportunity to experience an accomplished wordsmith like this year’s Guest Speaker, Dr. Stacy Smallwood. Dr. Smallwood is an Associate Professor of Community Health in the Jiann-Ping Hsu College of Public Health and an affiliate faculty in the women’s Gender and Sexuality studies program at Georgia Southern University.

If you wish to present your original work, please contact the Averitt Center for information and an application form.

The Comedy of Zoltan Kaszas


Comedian Zoltan Kaszas returns to the Boro on January 22 at 7:30 p.m. Funny enough, he headlined the first Barefoot Comedy event at the Whitaker Black Box Theater on the same date exactly three years ago. Otherwise, Kaszas is best known for his Dry Bar Comedy Special "Cat Jokes", a clip of which has over 60 million view on Facebook. He has three full specials up on YouTube "Cat Jokes,” “Modern Male,” and “Dancin' With Drunks.” All three have combined total of over six million views on YouTube. Collin Moulin of Barefoot Comedy will be the opening act for his comedy special.

Parts and Labor To Perform at the EKT 


Parts & Labor will be performing at the Emma Kelly Theater on January 29 at 7:30 p.m. Based out of the musical hotbed of Macon, GA, Parts & Labor has been offering up its blend of rock n' roll, soul, and blues since the Spring of 2019. Heavily influenced by bands such as the Allman Brothers, The Band, the Grateful Dead, and plenty of funk, blues, and jazz along the way, they have been creating quite a buzz in Macon and beyond. The band first got together for a one-off gig in Macon for a private party in April of 2019. The vibe was good and they decided to keep the fires lit while they kept finding their own voice and getting the lineup just right.

Parts & Labor is sponsored by State Farm Matthew Tyson, Synovus, Southern Exchange, A Smokin' Place, Broucek & Colson, LLC Attorney at Law, and Bites Casual Dining.
