Grammy Award winning pianist Danilo Pérez is just one of the many acts coming to Bucks Live and performing at The Zlock Center at the Newtown campus.
The majority of the acts are free for students to watch.
Bucks Live holds over 60 events a year. With that many events, there’s something for everyone. Events range from Disney movie sing-alongs to rock concerts and everything in between.
Pete Chiovarou is the Director of Community Programming & College Events and director of Bucks Live. He says that Bucks Live “aims to be a hub of culture, with a little bit of everything for everyone.”
Chiovarou is accompanied with help from Michael Harryman, who deals with Specialized Support, Community Programming & College Events at Bucks. Five Bucks students also help around the theater. Mr. Chiovarou says that they’d be happy to accept any applications if there is interest in helping!
The best part about Bucks Live, besides the amazing performers, is that almost every event is free for Bucks students. If the event is not free, it’s extremely inexpensive. Tickets for students are $5. All events are open to the public, general admission tickets range from $10 to $25.
Bucks Live also offers a VIP ticket for guests 21+. This ticket lets you relax in the lounge outside the theater and have a choice of two beers or two glasses of wine.
Something very unique that Bucks Live hosts is Cultural Streaming Series. This is where they hold a showing of a musical performance, a play, or a documentary, completely for free. These events are usually at 12:15 p.m., so it’s around when most students have a break. If you find yourself bored on your break, come stop by the Zlock Center and watch a short movie, you’ll never know what you’ll learn!
Danilo Pérez’s Global Messengers are coming to Bucks on Mar 28 at 7:30 p.m. Pérez has won two Grammys in his career. The first was in 2005 and it was for Best Jazz Instrumental Album for the album Beyond the Sound Barrier by a quartet he is in called The Wayne Shorter Quartet.
The second Grammy he won was in 2018 for Best Jazz Instrumental Album (again) for the album Emano, also by the Wayne Shorter Quartet Pérez is part of. Pérezs performance is free for students, so be sure to stop by to see talent at it’s finest.
Another very popular artist that is coming to the Zlock Center is Larry Kirwan, front man of the well-known 80s band Black 47, and host of the Sirius XM radio show Celtic Crushing. He and another member of Black 47 will be at Bucks on Mar 15, 2019 at 7:30 p.m., for a pre- St Patrick’s Day celebration.
Bucks Live would love to hear your feedback and suggestions. “If any students have any recommendations, we would love to hear them! If you want someone to come and speak at campus, let us know and well do our best to get them!” Mr. Chiovarou says.
Come to Bucks Live if you are interested in seeing free live music from wonderful musicians!
