Bridge+Tunnel Christmas Revue at Towngate
Members of The Bridge and Tunnel Collective and some very special guests will perform a holiday revue for all ages at 8 p.m. Saturday, December 16 at Oglebay Institute’s Towngate Theatre.
The concert will put audience members in a festive mood as multiple local musicians take the stage, performing holiday classics as well as lesser-known seasonal songs. The show features the yuletide talents of Mr. Fancy Pants, Joshua Lee, M. Iafrate & The Priesthood, Weird Lightning and bedtime. Special guests Ezra Hamilton, Adrian Niles, Matt Heusel, Joe Zelek, R.J. Gaudio and Chelsey Keding will join these acts as well.
“We have wanted to do this kind of holiday show at Towngate for a while now, and it worked out this year,” said Michael Iafrate of the Bridge and Tunnel Collective. “We have in mind something like ‘The Last Waltz.’ Like last year’s Bridge + Tunnel holiday show, we wanted this one to benefit the community in some way, especially those most in need in our community. This year, Bridge and Tunnel’s proceeds will go to Catholic Charities West Virginia and Towngate will also make a donation.”
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring food and supplies to help CCWV’s Neighborhood Center on 18th Street.
Adult beverages will be available for purchase. An after-party will follow the show with Nail City Record selling and spinning vinyl records.
A church-turned-theater, Towngate is located in Wheeling’s historic Centre Market District. Towngate is a cornerstone of creative life in Wheeling and serves as an entertainment destination for residents of Wheeling, the Upper Ohio Valley and beyond.
