CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG | A MUSICAL TRIBUTE @ The Ritz Theatre

An exciting tribute to the original super group, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young! While their name may sound like a New York city law firm, CSNY’s music broke the mold and helped define the 60s generation with beautiful harmonies, meaningful lyrics and stellar musicianship.

Nationally touring band, Southern Cross, recreates this musical tapestry, performing songs like Teach Your Children, Just A Song Before I Go, Our House, Woodstock, Ohio and Suite Judy Blue Eyes. Let your ears be the judge. Pun intended.

James Taylor | A Musical Tribute @ The Ritz Theatre

The James Taylor Tribute have been touring the country in various groups for the better part of the last 3 decades, and have now come together to pay tribute to this great music and the greatest singer/songwriter/guitarist the world has ever produced. The result is a night of fantastic songs and brilliant guitar-work, all fronted by Greg Pitts, a performer who’s look and sound will take you back to the early days of James Taylor’s career.

Greg grew up on James Taylor and was a JT disciple on guitar and vocal all the way back to his youth when for the first time he met JT at a concert at West Point, NY in 1981. This fortuitous meeting led Greg to spend years learning the distinctive finger-picking style employed by Taylor, incorporating it into his live performances.

Since then Greg has performed the songs of James Taylor for appreciative crowds all over the world including Europe, Asia, Las Vegas, Seattle, New England (of course), and the Southeastern US.

John Denver | A Musical Tribute @ The Ritz Theatre

From the foot-stomping fun of “Thank God, I’m a Country Boy”, to the tenderness of Annie’s Song”, to the sweeping grandeur of “Rocky Mountain High” — Tom and his band take you on a musical journey into the many facets of John Denver’s songwriting, the songs that defined his life, and his passion for the preserving the environment.

Tom Becker, former member of the legendary folk group, The New Christy Minstrels, effortlessly embodies the warmth and humor of one of America’s best-loved songwriters.

“In this time of environmental concerns, and Americans’ efforts to simplify their lives, it seem that John Denver’s music and message are even more relevant today, yet you rarely hear his music on the radio anymore.” So, he assembled a stellar band and created a concert that will inspire both long-time Denver fans, and those who may be less familiar with his music.

Timeless, universal themes of home, family, love and nature create the framework. Personal anecdotes and observations from his career in folk music create a warm, humorous and uplifting experience.

Jimmy Buffett | A Musical Tribute @ Ritz Theatre

Bill first developed a love for music early in life. He began playing the drums at the age of 10 and quickly found himself playing many different styles of music with many different bands over the years. He has performed jazz, Dixieland, classical, rock, pop and everything in between. Growing up in the 70’s, he was heavily influenced by the singers and songwriters of that era. He is also a fan of many other styles of music. As he performed in bands and music programs through his school years, he knew he would have a lifelong connection to music.

Being a Florida native and growing up on the beaches soon influenced his music. Hearing Jimmy Buffett provided a way to experience some of the feelings of beach life through music.

Bill has performed at many locations and events such as Meeting of the Minds, Walt Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, and most of the Florida Margaritville’s, Bill has also performed for many major corporate events such as Nestle, Ford, Chrysler, Donzi Boats, Pro Line Boats and many others. Bill is perfectly suited for cruises, decks, conventions, waterfront areas, parrothead parties, and private events.
