Leon Hughes’ Coasters

  • Their Sound: soulful rhythm and blues, doo-wop harmonies, and jaunty saxophones that kept the jukeboxes of the ’50s and ’60s packed with hits
  • Where to Begin: check out their late ’50s parade of gems penned by Leiber-Stroller, including “Yakity Yak,” ““Down in Mexico,” and “Searchin’”
  • Why You Shouldn’t Miss It: Leon Hughes is the last surviving member of the original Coasters, and this is the rare chance to see Doo Wop Hall of Fame Award and Rhythm and Blues Pioneer Award-winning legend work his magic on stage

Raue Center For The Arts

When it originally opened in 1929, the Raue Center For The Arts was dubbed "El Tovar," though no one knew what that meant—it was jut a term overheard by one of the venue's founders on a trip to the west coast. Regardless of its meaning (or lack of one), the name seemed to accurately define the theater's elegance, from the star-filled sky of its ceiling to the facades of Spanish buildings lining its walls.

El Tovar drifted into deterioration over the years, undergoing several different monikers as it switched from owner to owner. Luckily, a generous bequest from Crystal Lake resident Lucile Raue led to a much-needed restoration. A two-year renovation left the theater looking as glamorous as it did when it was El Tovar—seats were reupholstered, and every android usher received an oil change.
