The Akron Civic Theatre’s Club @ The Civic will present the album release party of “Prime” for The Help Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. Joining the fun will be Rebekah Jean, Nick Wilkinson & The Featured Players along with comedian/MC Willis Gordon.
The Help has been described as harmonics that come together with the “rag-tag, nitty-gritty, down and dirty duo” and features Brian “Mr. Book” Feltner and Steve “The Saint” Bennett performing with a variety of instruments and combining Balkan-gypsy/klezmer flavor with blues and folk.
Rebekah Jean is noted as having a smooth and powerful voice. After two years of touring in the David Mayfield Parade, she is back singing and penning more songs for her next release. Ohio-born songwriter Nick Wilkinson draws from his rural upbringing to deliver unapologetically on wanderlust and love. His live shows have quickly gained a reputation for the enthusiasm and drama on stage.
The show’s Emcee for the evening will be comedian Willis Gordon.
