‘Club TFAC’ to sing the blues Saturday, Jan. 28

Published 3:39 pm Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) will “sing the blues” Saturday, Jan. 28 with the inaugural event of what is planned to be a yearly concert called “Chase Away the Blues.”
Eight separate acts will perform Saturday, creating a “Club TFAC” atmosphere. Music will run nonstop from the time the doors open at 4 p.m. to the last note of the jam session at around 10:30 p.m.
Seating for the event is general admission, with two tiers of ticket prices available. The basic ticket price provides access to the music all night long.
Patrons will trade their ticket for a wristband that will allow them to re-enter the arts center if they choose to come and go throughout the evening. For those who wish to stay, food and beverages will be available for sale in the Mahler Room.
The VIP ticket provides preferred seating in the auditorium and food and beverages free of charge in the private “VIP lounge” located in Gallery I.  Proceeds from tickets and a portion of food sales will benefit TFAC’s arts in education programming.
Music sets 45 minutes long will be in two locations: an informal “piano bar” atmosphere in the lobby and on stage in the auditorium.
Patrons will be free to come and go throughout the evening and bring beverages into the theater. The evening will culminate in a jam on the main stage.
Tickets are on sale at the Tryon Fine Arts Center Box office Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. VIP tickets will be sold only through Friday, Jan. 27 at 4 p.m.  For more information, visit www.tryonarts.org or call 828-859-8322.
