The Straits

  • Not your average tribute band: the group actually includes two real former members of Dire Straits
  • Who are: Alan Clark, the first and main keyboardist for Dire Straits, and saxophonist Chris White, who toured with the band from 1985–1995
  • A few of the other members: Steve Ferrone of The Average White Band and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and bassist Mick Féat, who has performed and recorded with Van Morrison and David Gilmour
  • Filling the shoes of Mark Knopfler: singer/guitarist Terence Reis, a performer so impressive in the role that Clark and White formed The Straits around him
  • What you’ll experience: a Dire Straits show from their ’80s prime
  • Hits that might inspire sing-alongs and movement of refrigerators: “Money for Nothing,” “Walk of Life”
  • Hit that might inspire weeping during the saxophone solo: “Romeo and Juliet”

The Lakeland Center

It’s almost easier to count who hasn’t played at the Lakeland Center than who has. Since the all-purpose venue opened in 1974, its many halls have seen such stars as Johnny Cash, Frank Sinatra, Jerry Seinfeld, Prince, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and Kathy Gifford. Besides the top-tier lineup of music and comedy acts, The Lakeland Center also hosts theatrical productions, conventions and festivals, and seasonal ice skating for all ages.
