“RUBIX KUBE – the galaxy’s most original ‘80s tribute band” and their Eighties Strikes Back Show – headlines the Jamie A. Hulley Arts Foundation’s fifteenth annual Evening for the Arts Gala Benefit on Saturday, September 9, 2017, at Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. The performance begins at 7 p.m. and is preceded by an Evening for the Arts reception at 6 p.m., which includes complimentary wine and beer, a dessert bar and silent and live auctions. Tickets are available through the Quick Center Box Office (203) 254-4010, or toll-free 1-877-ARTS-396. Tickets are $45 in advance or $50 at the door.
RUBIX KUBE and their Eighties Strikes Back Show is a one-of-a-kind, interactive ‘80s time warp extravaganza. RUBIX KUBE is led by a male and female dynamic duo of karma chameleons, able to transform in the-blink-of-an-eye into the voice and character of any ‘80s icon. Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, Devo, Bon Jovi, Guns N’ Roses, Van Halen, Aerosmith and more! Their supporting sidekicks are some of the most-excellent and versatile musicians around, including Steve Brown of the million-selling Rock band TRIXTER and David Z from The Trans-Siberian Orchestra. All are decked out in vibrant, vintage ‘80s threads and with enough hairspray to take down Freddy Krueger, The Terminator, and all The Gremlins at once. The KUBE is able to crank out Pop, Rock, New Wave, and Dance hits from the decade of decadence, and perform them just like the originals – yet with their own gnarly twist. This fast paced, exhilarating show is truly a most AWESOME ‘80s experience.
“RUBIX KUBE is so exciting – they look like and sound like the real thing! It’s an ‘80s party so guests should feel free to come dressed in their favorite ‘80s garb” said Judy Primavera, co-founder and president of the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation. “There is something for everyone – excellent entertainment, yummy desserts, and ‘totally rad’ auction and raffle items to bring home.”
The Gala also showcases the talents of young aspiring performers involved in the foundation’s programs at Square Foot Theatre in Wallingford, Amity High School’s Creative Theatre, and Broadway Method Academy in Fairfield. The Master of Ceremonies for the evening is Jared Andrew Brown, Artistic Director of Square Foot Theatre with Amity Creative Theatre’s Rob & Andrea Kennedy and Broadway Method Academy’s Connor Deane & J. Scott Handley serving as co-hosts.
