7 PM - PIFMA: Blood, Sweat & Tears at the Reserve Club. This iconic jazz-rock Canadian-American music group is noted for their combination of brass and rock band instrumentation. The group recorded songs by rock/folk songwriters such as Laura Nyro, James Taylor, the Band and the Rolling Stones as well as Billie Holiday and Erik Satie. They also incorporated music from Thelonious Monk and Sergei Prokofiev into their arrangements. They were originally formed in 1967 in New York City. Since their beginnings, the band has gone through numerous iterations with varying personnel and has encompassed a multitude of musical styles. The band is most notable for their fusion of rock, blues, pop music, horn arrangements and jazz improvisation into a hybrid that came to be known as "jazz-rock". Unlike "jazz fusion" bands, which tend toward virtuosic displays of instrumental facility and some experimentation with electric instruments, the songs of Blood, Sweat & Tears merged the stylings of rock, pop and R&B/soul music with big band, while also adding elements of 20th-century classical and small combo jazz traditions.

7 PM - PIFMA: We've Only Just Begun: Carpenters Remembered at the Reserve Club. An intimate behind-the-scenes portrait of the pop music phenomenon that defined an era, has been playing in theatres and showrooms all over the US since 2013.  It grew out of an idea Berting Brett, a farm girl from a musical family in Saskatchewan, conceived after being told repeatedly that she sounded like Karen Carpenter. Berting Brett, who studied opera and musical theater and then toured the world in show bands and in her own cabaret shows while based in Toronto, was encouraged by her now-husband, producer Mark Brett, to create a one-woman show based around the Carpenters' music.  The show played a small club in Toronto with Berting Brett accompanied only by a pianist. That was 2009, and now with this husband and wife team at the helm, the little SRO cabaret show has evolved into a touring production that has now played major showrooms in the U.S. Gates open at 6 PM, $30-general admission, $35-reserved, $50-preferred, 843.626.8911 or

11 AM-1 PM - The Moveable Feast: Bernie Shein (Pat Conroy: Our Lifelong Friendship) at Inlet Affairs.Pat Conroy, the bestselling author of The Prince of Tides and The Great Santini among many other books, was beloved by millions of readers. Bernie Schein was his best friend from the time they met in a high-school pickup basketball game in Beaufort, South Carolina, until Conroy's death in 2016. Both were popular athletes but also outsiders as a Jew and a Catholic military brat in the small-town Bible-Belt South, and they bonded. Wiseass and smart aleck, loudmouths both, they shared an ebullient sense of humor and romanticism, were mesmerized by the highbrow and reveled in the low, and would sacrifice entire evenings and afternoons to endless conversation. As young teachers in the Beaufort area and later in Atlanta, they were activists in the civil rights struggle and against institutional racism and bigotry. Bernie knew intimately the private family story of the Conroys and his friend's difficult relationship with his Marine Corps colonel father that Pat would draw on repeatedly in his fiction. A love letter and homage, and a way to share the Pat he knew, this book collects Bernie's cherished memories about the gregarious, welcoming, larger-than-life man who remained his best friend, even during the years they didn't speak. It offers a trove of insights and anecdotes that will be treasured by Pat Conroy's many devoted fans. $30, 843.235.9600 or

7 PM - PIFMA: Next Generation Leahy at the Reserve Club. Building on more than three generations of Leahy musicianship, Doug Leahy, together with his wife, Jennifer, and their children, are keeping those traditions alive through music, song, and dance. Doug, as a member of "Leahy" and Jennifer, having played music throughout her life, both understand the joy and exhilaration only music can provide. It is no wonder then that their children understand innately that music will be a huge part of their lives. Even the smallest children feel the music pulsing through their veins. They are drawn to it. They are passionate about it. It is this drive to create music that has led Doug and Jennifer's children to achieve so much, even at their young ages. Still all in elementary school, the children are accomplished multi-instrumentalists. Led by Doug, live performances are filled with the high-energy, infectious Celtic-based music people associate with the Leahy heritage. Fiddle, cello, French accordion, singing, piano, and French-Canadian step-dancing all find a voice on stage. And the children, so in love with what they are doing, that audiences who don't want the show to end. Having shared stages across North America with "Leahy," their performances leave audiences in awe.This rare talent in children so young is an inspiration to other children and families alike. The joy of music is meant for all, Doug and his family are set on sharing that joy with each and every audience.

7 PM - PIFMA: Pablo Cruise at the Reserve Club. In 1975 Pablo Cruise released its first A&M album simply entitled Pablo Cruise. The album cover was shot in the tropical gardens of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park and it featured a huge gorilla standing front and center. The band, David Jenkins (guitars, vocals), Cory Lerios (keyboards, vocals), Bud Cockerel (bass, vocals) and Steve Price (drums, percussion) were nowhere in sight. At that point there was a bit of a mystique surrounding Pablo Cruise and when asked what Pablo Cruise meant, the well-rehearsed answer went something like this: "Pablo" represents an honest, real, down to earth individual, and "Cruise" depicts his fun-loving, easy-going attitude towards life. In essence that's what Pablo Cruise music is all about. Honest, real down to earth vocals, accompanied by fun yet elegant, infectious grooves. To hear Pablo Cruise on record is one thing, but to experience the band live is an exhilarating event! From 1975 to 1985 the band toured the United States, Canada and Japan extensively, welcoming fans to "Climb Aboard The Good Ship Pablo Cruise." Reaching the top 10 with mega hits like "Whatcha Gonna Do When She Says Goodbye?" and "Love Will Find A Way," and several other top 20's, the band went on to sell several million albums and singles collectively and established themselves as well respected writers and performers within the industry. In 1985 after completing several national tours and releasing 7 studio albums in all, the band decided to take a hiatus ... one that lasted nearly 20 years. Fast forward 20 years ... In 2005 a reunited Pablo Cruise picked up where they left off and today the band performs all over the U.S. and Canada and they're enjoying it more than ever. Since getting back together, they have released two live CD's and a DVD. Gates open at 6 PM, $35-general admission, $45-reserved, $85-preferred, $175-platinum, 843.626.8911 or

7 PM - PIFMA: The Marshall Tucker Band at the Reserve Club. In the early fall of 1973 The Marshall Tucker Band was still a young and hungry group out to prove themselves every time they hit the stage. Their debut album had already spawned numerous hits. The band's recent release of their "Live! From Englishtown" album is a time capsule from that period. "We were a bunch of young guys who didn't know any boundaries" says founding member and longtime lead singer Doug Gray. As it turned out, the collective talents of The Marshall Tucker Band took them very far indeed. Still today they represent a time and place in music that will never be duplicated. Gray is quick to credit the band's current dynamic members with carrying on the timeless essence of The Marshall Tucker Band sound. Along the way, the band has recorded 22 studio albums, three DVDs, three live albums and many compilations. Years of rigorous tour schedules earned the band the respect of critics and countless dedicated fans. With hit singles like "Heard It in a Love Song," "Fire On The Mountain," "Can't You See," and "Take The Highway," The Marshall Tucker Band earned seven gold and three platinum albums while they were on the Capricorn Records label. During the 90's, the MTB scored four hit singles on Billboard's country chart and one on Billboard's gospel chart. "As we've become older," Gray grins, eyes twinkling, "our Southern heritage seems to come out even more. But no matter how old we get, we can still rock your socks off." After 40 years, The Marshall Tucker Band continues to be played on classic rock and country radio, and they have never stopped touring. More than 40 years after forming, The Marshall Tucker Band continues to tour, performing more than 130 live dates each year.
