That's right, she's back! Jeanne returns to the Paramount after two previous SOLD OUT appearances on our stage. Jeanne reached her 6'2" stature at age thirteen, and perhaps that was an indication of a future career that would soar to great heights. As Miss North Carolina 1963 she competed in the Miss America Pageant where she was named Miss Congeniality.

Brian Roman
April 3, 2015 - 7:30pm

Not that long ago, Brian Roman was a salesman with a "9 to 5" job selling insurance and real estate. Although he was successful, he was not fulfilled. One day he did something that most of us would never consider; he followed his dream. Although he looks like he just walked right off the silver screen, Brian Roman is not acting. He's the real deal - a gifted singer and natural-born entertainer.

It was during one of Brian's spectacular performances that world-renowned entertainer, Pavlo, was drawn to Brian's inspiring energy. Pavlo immediately sought to work with Brian to produce an album that could reflect the preeminence of a Brian Roman concert experience.

Brian's debut album, "Dreamer," features collaborations with illustrious songwriters Marc Jordan, Jody Raffoul, and John Capek, in addition to acclaimed musicians, Oscar Lopez, George Koller, and Pavlo.

Jake Owen - Appearing Live at Harrah's Cherokee Event Center

Harrah's Cherokee Event Center 777 Casino Drive Cherokee, NC 28719

JAKE OWEN
Appearing Live at
HARRAH'S CHEROKEE EVENT CENTER

Saturday, September 27, 2014

His roots are fairly easy to describe. Jake Owen was raised in the coastal town of Vero Beach, FL. He and his fraternal twin Jarrod grew up in the sand and surf. Both boys attended Florida State. That's where music became Jake Owen's true focus. He suffered a severe shoulder injury while wake boarding. This ended his days on the university's golf team. During his recuperation, his left arm was in a sling. Jake realized that even with his arm in a sling, he could hold a guitar so he started playing guitar and writing songs

After his recovery, Jake became a regular club entertainer. He quit college just shy of graduation to make his pilgrimage to Music City. Then he was catapulted into the country-music spotlight. Now comes the real work.

In 2005, Jake went from performing in Florida bars to moving to Nashville and within months he had a Music Row song-publishing contract. Less than a year later, he was signed by RCA Records and was on the charts with his first two singles, "Yee Haw" and "Startin' with Me." He went from being a speck in a stadium crowd at a Kenny Chesney concert to opening shows for the superstar. Then Brad Paisley took him on the road as Owen scored his third hit, 2007's "Something About a Woman." In 2008, Owen opened shows for Sugarland and Keith Urban in 2011.

Just like in past years, the Alive at Five concerts are free and family-friendly.”

Dependable Taxi will be the first band to play, on Friday, May 2, from 5pm to 8pm at Jaycee Park. Dependable Taxi is made of up local, long-time musicians who are amassing a large, loyal following.

On Friday, August 1st, Band of Oz returns to take the Morehead City waterfront by storm.
The Band of Oz was originally formed in 1967 as a part-time band playing fraternity parties and high school proms all over the South. In 1977 the band went on the road full time. Since that time the band has made an exceptional name for itself throughout the Southeast by playing the top clubs and corporate parties and getting excellent reviews along the way. For several years the group has been a guest on most of the major beach concerts in the Carolinas, Virginia and Georgia.

The band recorded their first song, Shaggin’, in 1978. It has become a beach classic. In 1982 at the Beach Music Awards, the Band of Oz was presented with an award for Best Group and one of their songs, Ocean Boulevard, was voted Best Beach Record of that year. In 1984 the band released Keep Keeping It Up, their first album. One More Step, their second album, was released in the summer of 1989. 1995 brought the release of the band’s third album, Let It Roll, one of the most successful beach music records of all time.

At the 1995 Cammy Awards, Let It Roll took album of the year and Shama Lama Ding Dong was named song of the year. The band also walked away with Group of the Year. At the 1996 awards, the band took home awards for Best Ballad and Best Live Recording.

Dance for Christ presented by Artistic Productions, Inc.

April 4th & 5th - 7pm
April 6th - 3pm
April 11th & 12th - 7pm
April 13th - 3pm

History - In 1989, Patricia O'Quinn Warren, found Artistic Productions Incorporated, a non-profit organization, to provide quality dance performances in rural Eastern North Carolina communities. The repertoire has transitioned from an annual to biennial production of The Nutcracker to annual productions of Dance for Christ.

What is Dance for Christ? Dance for Christ (DFC) is a ministry used to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through dance. The production features various genres of dance-ballet, lyrical, tap, jazz, and hip-hop. Dancers become the vessels which put God in the spotlight. As believers, the mission is to bring honor and praise to Jesus Christ and to open up the hearts and minds of non-believers to God's word in a way that is both relevant and truthful. Each dance piece tells a story or demonstrates God's unfailing love and mercy.

The Founder - Patricia O.Warren, founder and artistic director, was trained in her early years by her mother, Ellen O'Quinn, a principal and soloist with the Metropolitan Opera House in West Germany. Warren later studied at the Joffrey Ballet in New York, the North Carolina School of the Arts and the Cusack Ballet in Los Angeles. She has performed throughout the United States and abroad. It was during her battle with breast cancer, that the vision of Dance for Christ was born. Her desire was to use the art of dance as a ministry. The mission would provide a wonderful celebration to reach one more for Jesus and to "change lives...one dance at a time."

Tickets: $10/Each. $8/each for Military and Seniors 65+ (This $8 discount applies to the Saturday matinees at 1:30pm ONLY).

Tickets for this and many more upcoming events are available at the Paramount Theatre Box Office located at 139 South Center Street in Downtown Goldsboro, NC, online at www.GoldsboroParamount.com or over the phone by calling (919) 583-8432.
