|There will be a special concert by the FACE Vocal Band on Thursday January 18, in the West Gym of the Custer County School in Westcliffe.
The performance begins at 7 p.m., and a benefit spaghetti dinner will precede the show at 5:30 p.m.
FACE consists of five singing voices - they're an A Capella group but they rock with the aid of their pneumatic drummer, or beat boxer. Mark Megibow started out as a classically trained percussionist and performed in loud rock bands for just short of 30 years but as a vocal drummer, he creates the sounds of the drums and cymbals using only his mouth. The rest of the group consists from top down of counter tenor Stephen Ross, tenors Cody Qualls and Ryan Driver, plus bass Forrest Kelly. Their web page is http://facevocalband.com.
FACE performs in larger venues such as the Red Rocks Amphitheatre and has also performed the national anthem at both Rockies and Broncos games but they also perform special concerts as fundraisers throughout Colorado.
The January 18 concert is a fundraising event to benefit the music program at the Custer County Schools and is sponsored by In Concert Classical Music in the Valley. In Concert has assembled a group of generous sponsors from the community to cover the cost of the event so that all of the box office proceeds can go directly to the School Music program.
Tickets are available at the School Office, Loan A Ranger, and Candy's Coffee. There are two options. Concert goers can purchase tickets for a spaghetti dinner beginning at 5:30 p.m. which includes admission to the concert, or they can choose to attend the concert only which starts at 7 p.m.
For the spaghetti dinner and concert, ticket prices are $20 for Adults and $10 for Students. For the Concert Only the admission is $15 for Adults and $10 for Students. Pre-Schoolers may attend either event for free, accompanied by their parents. Ticket prices at the average FACE Vocal Band event generally go for anywhere between $25 and $100 so this Custer County event is definitely a bargain.
The FACE Vocal Band performs family-friendly concerts and this should be a memorable event for the entire family to enjoy together,
