Luhrs Performing Arts Center

8:00 PM - Luhrs Performing Arts Center: More than fifty years after they became one of the first British Invasion groups to top the U.S. singles charts with the hit “She’s Not There,” and approaching the golden anniversary of their album, Odessey and Oracle, that is acknowledged as one of the classic pop albums of all time, the Zombies continue their remarkable 21st-century resurgence with a North American tour. In 1967 five young men walked into Abbey Road Studios - #3, tinkered with the gear that was left behind from the previous session (by none other than The Beatles’ recording Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Band), and set out to make an album their own way. Of course, they never dreamed the results would loom so large in their lives. Ironically, although it led to the breakup of the original line-up, Odessey and Oracle produced the groups biggest hit a year later (“Time of the Season”), and became a musical touchstone for generations to come. 50 years later, it brings the four surviving members, Colin Blunstone on lead vocals, Rod Argent on keyboards/vocals, Chris White on bass/vocals, and Hugh Grundy on drums, back together on stage to perform the album in its entirety for the final time.www.thezombiesmusic.com

7:00 PM to 10:00 PM - Anthony F. Ceddia Union Building CUB123 - Orndorff Theatre: Introduction to the film and questions & answers following will be led by Professor Stephanie Jirard, Department of Criminal Justice.The title of Ava DuVernay’s extraordinary and galvanizing documentary refers to the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, which reads, “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States.” The progression from that second qualifying clause to the horrors of mass criminalization and the sprawling American prison industry is laid out by DuVernay with bracing lucidity. With a potent mixture of archival footage and testimony from a dazzling array of activists, politicians, historians, and formerly incarcerated women and men, DuVernay creates a work of grand historical synthesis.THIS PROGRAM IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.For more information, contact Aven Bittinger, ab008@ship.edu.

Kool and the Gang
Friday, March 31, 2017 8:00 PM
Luhrs Performing Arts Center

8:00 PM to 10:30 PM - Luhrs Performing Arts Center: In 1964, Khalis Bayyan (AKA Ronald Bell) and his brother, Robert "Kool" Bell, joined several Jersey City neighborhood friends to create a unique musical blend of jazz, soul and funk. At first calling themselves the Jazziacs, the band went through various names before settling on their moniker. Over the next several years they solidified their musical chemistry on the rough-and-tumble East Coast music scene. Their self-titled 1969 debut album introduced their signature instrumental sound and fierce horn arrangements and spawned their first Billboard RandB charted single. Kool and the Gang has sold over 70 million albums worldwide and influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like "Celebration," "Cherish," "Jungle Boogie," "Ladies Night" and "Get Down On It," they've earned two GRAMMY Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 Top Ten RandB hits, nine Top Ten Pop hits and 31 gold and platinum albums. Kool and the Gang has performed continuously for the past 43 years, longer than any RandB group in history. Their bulletproof funk and jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time. Kool and the Gang continues to tour and delight fans around the globe with their timeless hits.
