TUCK & PATTI – UP CLOSE AND INTIMATE AT THE CAMPUS CENTER THEATRE, STOCKTON UNIVERSITY, APRIL 15th

 “Where the Arts Come Alive!”

 

GALLOWAY, NJ, MARCH 15, 2017 – Tuck and Patti will perform an intimate show at the Campus Center Theatre at Stockton University on Saturday, April 15th. After 36 years this unique, genre-crossing vocal/guitar jazz duo has cast its passionate musical spell worldwide, capturing the hearts of lovers, the respect of jazz buffs and the jaw-dropping awe of guitarists and singers.

Show time is 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $32 and may be ordered online at www.stocktonpac.org or by calling the Box Office at (609) 652-9000. The Box Office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and ninety minutes before the performance. For Group Sales, call (609) 652-4786.

To understand Tuck & Patti, start with the wellspring of love within them, then their music begins to make perfect sense. Married 33 years, Tuck Andress and Patti Cathcart continue to stoke the fires, not only of their own love, but also of their love of life and their passion for making music together. They have a long-standing tradition: Minimalist arrangements featuring Tuck’s extraordinary virtuosity and Patti’s rich mezzo soprano.

Patti, renowned for her remarkable ability to touch hearts directly with her voice, exudes the soft, centered yet powerful graciousness of a gospel singer; Tuck almost wears his brain on his skin, anticipating the thousands of musical decisions he’ll have to send to his ten fingers during the course of a performance. Seeing the virtuosity and complexity of Tuck’s guitar work, most are surprised to learn that Patti is the actual writer, arranger and producer.

Without even blinking, Tuck-the-problem-solver brags, “Patti writes and arranges; I am just the orchestra.”

For patrons with special needs, the Stockton Performing Arts Center offers wheelchair accessible seating, large type programs, and listening assistive devices. Please identify any needs you may have when making a reservation.

The Stockton Performing Arts Center, the Jersey Shore’s Center for the Arts, is located on the campus of Stockton University, on Jimmie Leeds Road in Pomona (Galloway Township). Just 12 miles west of Atlantic City, the Center is easily accessible from the Garden State Parkway and the Atlantic City Expressway.

This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and by funds from the National Endowment for the Arts.
