Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Theresa Caputo, psychic medium and star of the hit TLC show, Long Island Medium, will be appearing live at the Coronado Performing Arts Center in Rockford on Friday, October 24th at 7:30pm.

New episodes of Long Island Medium began to air August 3rd on TLC. The highly-rated show follows Theresa’s life as a typical Long Island wife and mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time. The local car mechanic, manicurist or cashier at the bagel shop may find themselves receiving a spontaneous reading from Theresa as she goes about her day. The unique challenges that her special abilities create for her husband of 22 years, Larry, and her two children, aged 20 and 24, and how they cope, are also a main theme on the show.

Theresa’s second book titled “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” is scheduled to be released September 30th, 2014. Her first book titled “There’s More to Life Than This” debuted at #2 on the NY Times Best Seller List in the fall of 2013.

Theresa has been a practicing medium for 10 years and is a certified medium with the Forever-Family Foundation, an organization dedicated to connecting science with the afterlife. She helps individuals find closure by connecting them with their departed loved ones. For Theresa, this is not just her job... this is her life. Learn more about Theresa at theresacaputo.com.

Rock_1415_Header.jpg

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 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 HAPPY HOUR TOUR comes on the heels of the release of Under The Influence, their fourth album release through Atlantic Records. The album features contributions from superstars Jason Mraz, Rob Thomas, Phil Collins, Dolly Parton and more! 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.

Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Coronado Performing Arts Center

Tickets

In This Moment, an American alternative metal band, will perform live at the Coronado PerformingArtsCenter on Friday, November 14th at 7 p.m.  Special guests 12 Foot Ninja, Starset and 3 Pill Morning will also be performing.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $27 at the door plus applicable fees.

Led by frontwoman Maria Brink, the Los Angeles hard rock outfit strikes with a seductive metallic bite on their aptly titled fifth full-length album, Black Widow. The record, the first for the band on Atlantic Records, picks up where the group's 2012 breakthrough, Blood, left off. That album saw In This Moment debut at #15 on the Billboard Top 200, their highest chart position to date, and eventually sold over 250,000 units in the U.S. alone. It also spawned the single "Blood," which rose to #9 on the Mainstream Rock and Active Rock Songs charts. A sold out headline tour, HELLPOP, followed, as well as appearances at the Uproar Festival and Rock On The Range, and jaunts with Shinedown and Papa Roach. After the whirlwind of Blood subsided, Maria and Chris retreated to Las Vegas in February 2014 to begin working on what would become Black Widow with longtime producer Kevin Churko [Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch].

The performance is sponsored by 104.9 The X and Frank Productions
