Lock 3 Live Presents Richard Elliot and Paul Brown

  • Richard Elliot’s sound: smooth tenor sax that glides through melodies
  • Songs where that’s apparent: “In the Groove,” Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman,” and Luther Vandross’s “Here and Now”
  • Where else you’ve heard him: in songs by Tower of Power, Elliot’s former funk band
  • Where to start: 2014’s Lip Service
  • Paul Brown’s weapon of choice: guitar—a 1963 Gibson Johnny Smith L-5, to be precise
  • How he uses it: to churn out R&B-driven urban jazz—both as a solo artist and with a pack of top-tier collaborators—and to win Grammys
  • Some of those collaborators: Dave Koz, Larry Carlton, and Richard Elliot
  • Number of those Grammys: 2

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.
