Join us for an evening with Morganton’s own “Karaoke Queen” Alberta Hall. From Jazz and Motown to Contemporary Soul, Alberta performs it all! After a background of singing with her family, church and in the community, the time has come for Alberta to be in her own spotlight. In 2017 she was the first TGIF Show Down winner, and had the crowd up and on their feet. Alberta comes to life when there is a microphone in her hand! CoMMA Director, Jim Smith, finds a local artist to show off every year in our line up, and Alberta has definitely earned her place in the 2018-2019 season! The CoMMA staff heard Alberta at the winners stage last year and knew our patrons would absolutely love her unique style and energy. She will bring the Rhythm and Blues to the stage just like no one else!

Please note this performance has been rescheduled from its original date. 

Legendary performer (as chronicled in Jimmy Buffett’s 1999 hit “I Will Play for Gumbo”) Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton brings his Florida slide guitar blues, his gumbo, and his own hot sauce to every multi-sensory performance. His show includes a culinary demonstration with audience stirring and sampling the gumbo. Sauce Boss is a powerhouse of energy with his one-man band.
