Tony Lucca Returns To The GEM Stage

Monday, July 7, 2014

With eight full-length albums into his career and almost twenty years of industry experience, singer/ songwriter Tony Lucca returns to the stage at Calhoun’s GEM Theatre Sunday, July 27 at 7:30 p.m.  Standard tickets are $10; $15 for platinum, and $20 for platinum plus. The latter includes a limited number pre-show meet and greet.

Beginning as a Mouseketeer on the Mickey Mouse Club, Lucca was featured on an Aaron Spelling prime time drama; played himself in an episode of NBC’s “Parenthood,” and was a finalist on Team Adam (Levine) of the hit show, “The Voice.” All the while he continued to hone a craft that remains the primary focus of his heart, soul, and passion – songwriting.

"What tends to separate an artist from the pack is experience, confidence, and self-exploration, and in that area, Tony Lucca has become a standard-bearer to some and a torch-bearer to others.  His CD’s, 'Under the Influence,' 'Drawing Board,' and most recently, 'Rendezvous with the Angels,' turn his expressions of life and relationships into beautiful, thoughtful and often emotionally painful songs," officials stated.

Mr. Lucca followed his 2013 appearance at the GEM with a tour with Maroon 5 last summer. 

To purchase tickets or for further information contact the Theatre at 706.625.3132.  Box Office hours are 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and 3 – 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

The City I Used To Know

“They Dead”, the innocent young voice said as tears began streaming from my eyes.  Foolishness that didn’t involve him snatched away his childhood in the blink of an eye.  Why?  Why has my city become known more for gangs and violence than the River Front, Lookout Mountain, and a fun little theme park?  What happened to hot summers at Lake Winnie, ...
