Latin jazz, Celtic rock, funky jams and more are on tap as the Center for the Performing Arts has announced seven 2021 dates in its new livestream concert series featuring Indiana artists.
Free to view on YouTube, Facebook and the Center’s website, the “Live at the Center” series, sponsored by Allied Solutions, delivers a front-row perspective on the best in local original music, with multi-camera HD video and rich stereo sound. More information on registration and viewing options are available at TheCenterPresents.org/LATC.
Shows from January through March include sets from Jeff Kelly and the Graveyard Shift, 800 lb. Gorilla, Pavel & Direct Contact, Joshua Powell and the Great Train Robbery, Highland Reign, Huckleberry Funk and the Warrior Kings, all performing live at the Center’s three venues.

McDermott, president and CEO of the Center for the Performing Arts and the affiliated Great American Songbook Foundation. “The audience seems to build with each show, and we’re reaching thousands of new people throughout and even beyond Central Indiana.”
