Take Mark Levin as ColumbusMarks One-Man-Band on the keyboard and combine that with Saludas Mike Reeves on the guitar and you end up with an entire band (even an orchestra) coming out of two instruments. The two, known as Music Alive, come together in a blend of music spanning the generations and multiple genres for an evening of entertainment on Saturday, Dec. 11 at the Trade Street Gallery Coffee House in downtown Tryon.

The come-as-you-are event starts at 7 p.m. and will last until 9. Theres no charge for listening and coffee and treats are available for a nominal charge.

Musical selections could range from George Gershwin and Hoagy Carmichael tunes to Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and Hank Williams. And this close to the holidays, youll likely hear a Christmas song or two.
