Cox Music and Movies Series in July at the Holland Performing Arts



FREE MUSIC AND MOVIE SERIES RETURNS TO HOLLAND CENTER
‘Frozen’ and Dani Cleveland and Friends Kick Series Off on July 11, 2014

 Omaha Performing Arts is pleased to announce the return of its Cox Music & Movies series. These free public events will run Fridays, July 11-25, 2014. Each Cox Music & Movies evening will feature a performance by an area band followed by a family-friendly film presented in the courtyard of the Holland Performing Arts Center, 1200 Douglas St. The Holland Performing Arts Center’s courtyard will open at 7 p.m. with music beginning at 7:30 p.m. and the film beginning at dusk, or around 8:45 p.m., rain or shine. Grass seating is available and blankets and chairs are welcome. Guckenheimer, the exclusive food service provider for the Holland Performing Arts Center, will provide concessions. No outside food, drink or pets are permitted.




“Frozen.” Before the movie and back by popular demand, Dani Cleveland and Friends will perform a high energy soul and R&B concert. Cleveland performed at Cox Music and Movies in 2013. Last year, she was nominated for an Omaha Hip Hop Award for Best Female R&B Artist. In 2010, she was honored as Artist of The Year by the National Council of Negro Women.

The next movie in the series is “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” screened on July 18. Performing before the movie will be the Lincoln-based American roots band, Root Marm Chicken Farm Jug Band. The group plays old-timey music on traditional and homemade instruments. Like many of the jug bands of yesteryear, Root Marm features a rotating cast of musicians that shrinks and swells to suit each performance. At its core are Ian Craig, on the guitar, vocals, kazoo and harmonica; Matt Wynn on the banjo and bones; Josh Kornbluh on his makeshift drum kit; and Kyle Bruggeman on the great big gallon jug, as well as various whistles and other noise makers. Joining them for their performance at the Holland performance are Ash Sharp, a multi-instrumentalist who often sits in on his "fiddola" (viola), but is equally comfortable on the baritone guitar or toy piano and Casey Hollingsworth (a.k.a. Bud Heavy of Bud Heavy and the High Lifes) on the mandolin and vocals.

“Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” will close the series on July 25. The five-piece country swing band The Electroliners performs before the movie begins. The Electroliners were nominated for Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards for Best Country/Americana in 2012 and 2013.
