Pete The Cat
Wednesday, November 2

When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners – and boy are they square! But for the groovy blue cat, life is an adventure no matter where you wind up, so the minute Pete walks in the door, he gets the whole family rocking. The whole family, that is, except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized second grader on planet earth.  As the end of second grade approaches, Jimmy has a lot of tests, and the last thing he needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class during the last week of school, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer second grade art, and along the way, they both learn a little something new about inspiration. Join Jimmy and Pete on an adventure of friendship, all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus.

Straight No Chaser
Nov 16 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Straight No Chaser
I’ll Have Another…20th Anniversary World Tour

If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses … think again.  Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. The I’LL HAVE ANOTHER…WORLD TOUR comes to town in celebration of the group’s 20th Anniversary together. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense … and with a sense of humor. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.

Jonny Lang in Concert

Jonny Lang in Concert

The Grand Opera House is proud to present Grammy award-winning virtuoso blues guitarist and singer/songwriter Jonny Lang in concert Friday, Nov. 18. Lang will kick-off a weekend of events in Macon, GA, celebrating the acclaimed former Allman Brother, Duane Allman. Allman’s coveted 1957 Goldtop Les Paul will be on loan to Lang for this intimate concert event. Doors will open at 7 p.m., concert at 8 p.m. Tickets start at $35 with $65 VIP tickets available. To purchase, call our box office (478) 301-5470 or visit TheGrandMacon.com.

At 15, Jonny Lang made a blues album, 1997’s “Lie to Me,” which went platinum and hit No. 1 on Billboard’s New Artist chart. At 17 he made another, “Wander This World,” which earned a Grammy nomination. Today, at age 32, he can’t listen to them. “It’s like torture,” he says. “It’s like going back and looking at your high school yearbook or something. But no, I wouldn’t change anything. It’s all a part of where you are presently as a person.”

Lang’s Macon stop is part of a four-month cross-country tour in support of his new album “Fight for My Soul”. In more than ten years on the road, Lang has toured with the Rolling Stones, Buddy Guy, Aerosmith, B.B. King, Blues Traveler, Jeff Beck and Sting.
