Clapton Tribute Evolution With The FM Project – A Steely Dan Tribute
* What to expect: spot-on, impassioned performances of Clapton's hits * Just his solo stuff?: no, the whole shebang, including his hits with Blind Faith, Cream, Derek and the Dominos, and The Yardbirds * Credentials of Clapton surrogate Chris Wintrip: he's performed with the likes of Joe Walsh, Roger McGuiinn, and Lynyrd Skynyrd; he uses a Stratocaster instead of an air guitar * Can The FM Project pull off the intricate works of Steely Dan?: with gusto and horns—they've learned every Steely Dan album from start to finish
E.J. Thomas Hall
Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
