Vince Gill Will Open Time Jumpers Show
Country music star will play solo material at State Theatre.
Country singer Vince Gill won't just part of the Time Jumpers line-up when the group plays the State Theatre next month. He'll also be the group's opening act.
Gill -- who performed in Easton in 2011 -- will play about 40 minutes of his own material Feb. 16 before the Time Jumpers -- a sort of country music supergroup -- take the stage.
The Time Jumpers came together in 1998, and established themselves as -- to quote the theater's news release -- "the show that stars go to see."
In addition to Gill, the rest of the band includes Dennis Crouch (upright bass), Larry Franklin (fiddle), Paul Franklin (steel guitar), “Ranger Doug” Green (vocals, acoustic rhythm guitar), Andy Reiss (electric guitar), Dawn Sears (vocals), Kenny Sears (vocals, fiddle), Joe Spivey (fiddle, vocals) Jeff Taylor (accordion, piano) and Billy Thomas (drums, vocals).
The show is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $50 & $40 and can be purchased by visiting the theater box office, by calling 1-800-999-STATE or 610-252-3132 or online atwww.statetheatre.org.
