Tracy Morgan, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Sasheer Zamata, & More Coming to SteelStacks

 

BETHLEHEM, PA—Comedians Tracy Morgan and Sasheer Zamata and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s holiday concert are among the 12 new performances announced for the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks. Tickets for the performances (with the exception of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy) go on sale Tues., Dec. 11, 10 a.m., to ArtsQuest Members and Fri., Dec. 14, 10 a.m., to the public at www.steelstacks.org and 610-332-3378. Tickets for Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are on sale now.

On Feb. 23, 7 & 9:45 p.m., Tracy Morgan returns to the Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling for two shows of no-holds-barred standup comedy. From “Saturday Night Live” to “30 Rock,” and everything in between, Morgan is one of the most respected comedians in his field. In 2016, he headlined a nationwide stand-up tour titled “Picking Up the Pieces,” which culminated in his latest stand up special, “Staying Alive,” now streaming on Netflix. Morgan now stars in and is executive producer of the TBS show “The Last O.G.,” created by Jordan Peele. Tickets for each show are $40-$45.

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy takes the stage at the Musikfest Café Dec. 18, 7:30 p.m. for its ‘Wild & Swingin’ Holiday Party’ show featuring swing versions of songs like “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer,” “Mr. Heatmiser” and more. After 11 records, more than 2,800 live shows and countless appearances in film and television, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy celebrates more than 25 years in the industry and shows no signs of slowing down. Early on, during a legendary residency at the Derby nightclub in Los Angeles, the band reminded the world, during the grunge era no less, that it was still cool to swing. The band, cofounded by singer Scotty Morris and drummer Kurt Sodergren, was at the forefront of the swing revival of that time, blending a vibrant fusion of the classic American sounds of jazz, swing and Dixieland, with the energy and spirit of contemporary culture. Tickets for the show are $30-$40.

Comedian Sasheer Zamata takes the stage at the Fowler Blast Furnace Room Feb. 8, 8 p.m. Named one of Time Out New York’s Top 10 Funniest Women, Zamata is a comedian, actress, writer and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member who’s performed standup at Bonnaroo, SXSW, Moontower Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Festival, Great American Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival and more. Her most recent work includes films like “The Weekend” and “I Feel Pretty,” as well as her first one-hour comedy special, “Pizza Mind.” Tickets for her show are $23.50 for ArtsQuest Members and $26 for the public.
