James Gregory
The Funniest Man in America
Saturday, November 17
7 pm
All Seats $23

Finally, everyone’s favorite comedian is back at The Ritz. James Gregory creates his signature evening of non-stop laughter with a wry sense of the absurd, a
heavy Southern accent and universal storytelling. The ridiculous, the common and sometimes even the simplest event all become hilarious in the hands of a master. By refusing the vulgar and profane, Gregory focuses on simpler times before the loss of common sense. Be prepared for some rib-tickling reflection on life from the front porch. James Gregory is a national treasure!

Black Jacket Symphony
Queen’s
A Night at the Opera
Featuring Marc Martel
Friday, January 4
Saturday, January 5
7 pm
All Seats 28

After some 13 different classic rock albums recreated in over 25 concerts at The Ritz over the last five years, this is our first Black Jacket Symphony encore – but for good reason. Black Jacket’s
‘A Night at the Opera’ concert features a phenomenal talent on the Freddie Mercury vocals, Mark Martel. Martel is on the verge of international acclaim due to the November 2018 release of the major motion picture BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, about Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury. Martel recorded the song voiceovers for actor Ramey Malek, who plays the Mercury character. Absolutely no voice in the world comes as close to Mercury’s iconic sound than that of Mark Martel, who recorded the soundtrack at Abbey Road Studios in London. Act quickly, tickets to this breathtaking concert experience will go fast.
