Since the original members first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the late 1930s (including Jimmy Carter, who leads the group today), the band has perserved through seven decades to become one of the most recognized and decorated roots music groups in the world. – See more at: http://thecenterforthearts.org/the-blind-boys-of-alabama-2/#sthash.zDdzaKCd.dpuf.

The Plaids have been miraculously brought back to earth for one magical hour-and-a-half to complete their mission by performing the concert they would have given. They must then return to the cosmos forever. Off Broadstreet veteran performers Andrew Kerr, JR Lewis, Isaias Acosta and newcomer Kelly Nevius are ‘The Plaids,’ singing brilliant four part close-harmony arrangements of 29 period songs including: ‘Magic Moments,’ ‘Crazy ‘Bout Ya Baby,’ ‘Gotta Be This or That,’ ‘Three Coins in the Fountain’ and ‘Rags to Riches.’ Live keyboard accompaniment is provided by musical director David Blanchard, with costumes and amazing choreography by Thom Green.
