FROM MCCAIN AUDITORIUM:
“A critical smash on Broadway and in London, the two-time Tony Award® winning hit musical “American Idiot” tells the story of three lifelong friends, forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Their quest for true meaning in a post 9/11 world leads them on the most exhilarating theatrical journey of the season.
Based on Green Day’s GRAMMY® Award-winning multi-platinum album, “American Idiot” boldly takes the American musical where it’s never gone before. The result is an experience Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declares “thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I’ve seen this year!”
Featuring the hits “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” “21 Guns,” “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” “Holiday” and the blockbuster title track, “American Idiot” features the music of Green Day and the lyrics of its lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong, direction by Tony Award® winner Michael Mayer (“Spring Awakening”), choreography by Olivier Award winner Steven Hoggett (“Once”), music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Kitt (“Next to Normal”), Tony Award® winning set design by Christine Jones and Tony Award® winning lighting design by Kevin Adams.”

The Manhattan Music Coalition, in efforts to support all the excellent musicians in the MHK area, presents to you, The Show.
The Show is a music cornucopia, a melting pot, a swilling and swirling of the finest music, from every genre, that Manhattan and the surrounding area has to offer.
Three genres. Three acts. One stage. The Show.
For our second The Show of 2014, we have Abandon Kansas with Vineyard & Möbius Strip.
This event also serves as the monthly fundraiser for the MMC, your donations powering the promotional and educational efforts of the Coalition in the MHK area. There is a suggested donation of $3 that goes directly to the Manhattan Music Coalition.
Come one, come all…to The Show.

L.A. Price is a true musician and feels comfortable playing piano, guitar, mandolin and even a little bass guitar. “My style and sound is a folk/pop hybrid—it’s not in a real category. All the different sounds that I’ve tinkered with over the years are meshed into this album. But all the songs still work together as a unit. There’s beat boxing and mandolin on my record. How many records are going to include both beat boxing and mandolin? We even did it on the same song. That’s so different, and it’s really cool.
Opening for Miss Price will be Local Love winner for November 2013, Sarah Mammoliti.
“Take a bottle of college life and a bottle of hip-hop, pour a drink, and that shot is what our music is,” said Abe Alem, K-State alumnus in electrical engineering, who returned to Manhattan on Saturday night performing as one half of the rap and hip-hop duo, F-14.
The other half of F-14 is Wayne Valentine, graduate in audio engineering from the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences in Tempe, Ariz.
“The music itself is a representation of us,” Valentine said. “But hip-hop has a negative connotation, we want to change those perceptions.”
The duo, originally from Manhattan, met in first grade at Theodore Roosevelt Elementary. After college, they moved to Oklahoma for separate jobs, but through a series of fortunate events wound up together again and began making music.
RSBB is back again for another night of smokin blues done like only RSBB can do em!
