Representing the Iowa Goatsinger, Mike Moran is premiering a fresh solo performance piece, "The Iowa Goatsinger: Near Fear", a mix of story, movement, song, and generally foolish behavior.

The Uptown Theatre, First Street Community Center, The Uptown Theatre, 221 First Street NE

Eddie Piccard grew up only a few miles from Cedar Rapids, but soon left for the jazz scene in Chicago, for famous Rush Street and the playboy clubs, appearing opposite the likes of Ramsey Lewis and George Shearing.

After cutting his chops with his first trio in Chicago, Piccard moved on to the lights of the Florida resorts. Later, he formed another trio in Florida, which became a favorite of Jackie Gleason’s.

A class act in Cedar Rapids for many years, Piccard and his sidemen delight with everything from Sinatra standards to an amazing Ray Charles tribute.

The group has entertained couples spending a night out for live music, family birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, office parties, ballroom dancers, friends who just want to enjoy live jazz–and even music students who just come to take notes.
