Mavis Staples

  • “A House is Not a Home”: except when it’s filled with The Staple Singers, Mavis’ legendary family band where she performed soul, gospel, blues, R&B, and funk with her father and sisters
  • “I’ll Take You There”: what she promised fans when she embarked on a solo career, which has spanned more than four decades and multiple genres
  • “Respect Yourself”: what she challenged listeners to do as she frequently sang Civil Rights anthems including Bob Dylan’s “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall” and Stephen Stills’ “For What It’s Worth”
  • “Tonight I Feel Like Dancing”: what she may have said—and done—when she won her first Grammy in 2011 for You Are Not Alone, produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy
  • One True Vine: her latest solo album and second collaboration with Tweedy, who also wrote three of its songs

Joan Osborne

  • When you first met her: when her debut single, “One of Us,” shot up the charts in the early ’90s thanks to her pleading, raspy vocals and spiritual yet relatable lyrics
  • Her breakthrough album: Relish, the record that featured “One of Us,” as well as the subsequent hits “St. Teresa” and “Right Hand Man,” and was certified 3x platinum in the U.S.
  • Her foray into soul: 2002’s How Sweet It Is, which saw Osborne deftly cover Motown classics such as Aretha Franklin’s “Think” and Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine”
  • Her side projects: appearing in the 2002 documentary Standing in the Shadows of Motown, touring with The Funk Brothers, and recording with Trigger Hippy, a supergroup boasting members from Widespread Panic and Black Crowes
  • Her latest studio album: 2014’s Love and Hate, a collection of songs about “faith, passion, power struggles, humor, anguish, spirituality, lust, anger, everything on that spectrum,” according to Osborne. Read the Deal Guide’s interview with her about the record here.

About Bergen Performing Arts Center


In 2004—on a mission to bolster its community’s wellspring of creativity and education—the nonprofit Bergen Performing Arts Center took over the former John Harms Center, an art-deco-style movie and vaudeville palace built in 1922. Today, in the same antique theater where Frank Capra screened his first car chase, the venue hosts 150 yearly events that bring dance, music, and theatrical productions to an estimated 250,000 annual audience members. Networks such as HBO, PBS, and MTV all have filmed international broadcasts on the stage, which has seen the likes of Diana Krall, Heart, and ZZ Top.
