PG-13 1h 30min July 30, 2021 Action, Adventure, Comedy

Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney’s Jungle Cruise, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank’s questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila—his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities—possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate—and mankind’s—hangs in the balance.

AUGUST MARKET SPECIAL PARKING NOTE:

We are excited to have our Olde Towne Antique & Flea Market return to the Middle Street Garage! We do want to inform you that the Coast Guard 5K - 10K race will be the same day as our August Flea Market with an expected 1,000 visitors. The race route is right beside the market location. Local traffic officials have suggested the following route to access the market:

Go down Effingham Street and turn right on High Street toward the water. Turn left on Middle Street and then right into the garage. We realize that getting 75 vendors into the garage with only one route in will be congested. The streets will be reopened by 1 pm, so leaving should be no problem. Thanks for being patient!

Call 757-405-3500 for additional information and vendor space rentals.

Let's Rock Broadway starring The Diamonds

Sep 10, 7:30pm

Churchland High School4301 Cedar LnPortsmouth, VA23703 Map

Adult Tickets $25 or purchase a season pass for all five shows for $85

In 1957, The Diamonds released an instant million-selling hit called Little Darlin’. To date, it has sold 20 million copies worldwide and has been dubbed “the National Anthem of Rock and Roll.” Since its release, The Diamonds have learned one important lesson - the durability of this classic rock and roll music is as much about the future as it is about the past. A major reason for their longevity as performers and entertainers lies in their diverse backgrounds. Youngest member, Adam David Marino, hails from Rochester, NY, where he studied musical theater at Nazareth College. Michael Lawrence, originally from South Carolina and now residing in Las Vegas, is no stranger to the world of performing, majoring in musical theater at Coastal Carolina University. Bass singer Jeff Dolan, who joined The Diamonds in 2011, has worn many hats in his career - first as a member of the sensational jazz group Beachfront Property, then as a bass singer and vocal contractor for Ray Coniff, touring internationally for 10 years. Baritone singer Gary Owens has spent the longest time as a Diamond joining forces with bass singer John Felton in 1973. Owens learned his craft as a journeyman bass player around Los Angeles while earning his undergraduate degree in music at California State University, Long Beach.

Black Market Trust presented by Portsmouth Community Concerts, Inc.

Mar 11, 7:30pm

Churchland High School4301 Cedar LnPortsmouth, VA23703 Map

Adult Tickets $25 each.

The Black Market Trust is an American pop/vocal jazz band that combines the sounds of the great American crooners and vocal groups with the romantic Eastern European gypsy fire of jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. These five world-class musicians have traveled the globe recording and performing with music’s most renowned artists. Their all-instrumental debut studio album, The Black Market Trust, is widely regarded as a milestone in the gypsy jazz world with lead guitarist, Jeffrey Scott Radaich, gaining notoriety for his technical prowess and musicality. They established themselves as leaders and innovators by combining pop “Brill Building” sensibilities with the traditional sound of Django Reinhardt’s Hot Club of France Quintet. Their music has been featured in ABC TV’s comedy series, Happy Endings, and the animated video featuring their song, Referential Integrity, has garnered over one-million YouTube views. Bassist Brian Netzley and Radaich, formerly with the Gonzalo Bergara Quartet, stayed true to their love of Django, combining it with a new sound and sensibility of the great pop/rock bands they grew up listening to and recruiting LA-based session/touring drummer Brandon Laws and Tucson, AZ’s violin hero/Eastern European folk music expert Nick Coventry. The lineup includes wunderkind Kale Stiles on rhythm guitar, clarinet and saxophone, and even lap steel. Vocals merge their love of everything from The Mills Brothers to The Beach Boys, from Sinatra to Lennon/McCartney.

By popular demand, Portsmouth Community Concerts brings back Sons of Serendip after their outstanding performance during the 2019-2020 concert season. The classical/neo-soul/R&B fusion quartet features lead vocalist Micah Christian, pianist and guitarist Cordaro Rodriguez, cellist and vocalist Kendall Ramseur, and harpist Mason Morton. They met as graduate students at Boston University and went on to gain national attention in 2014 when they auditioned for Season 9 of NBC-TV’s America’s Got Talent. The panel of celebrity judges voted them through the audition round and eventually as finalists were invited back in 2019 to perform on America’s Got Talent: The Champions, where they received standing ovations. Since the talent competition, Sons of Serendip has toured nationally creating music that touches people’s hearts. Some notable performances include the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, as well as collaborations with Cynthia Erivo, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops.

Voices of Service presented by Portsmouth Community Concerts, Inc.

May 20, 7:30pm

Churchland High School4301 Cedar LnPortsmouth, VA23703 Map

Adult Tickets $25.

Voices of Service, based in Northern Virginia and under the umbrella of the nonprofit CAMMO (Center for American Military Music Opportunities), is a singing quartet that has been together for seven years. They include retired Master Sgt. Caleb Green, retired Staff Sgt. Ron Henry, Sgt. Maj. Christal Rheams, and retired Sgt. 1st Class Jason Hanna. The group uses their platform to increase awareness of what music can do for service men and women who are coping with post-traumatic stress and other invisible/visible wounds. Their journey and purpose reached a new dimension when they placed fifth in 2019 in Season 14 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, followed by a return appearance in January 2020 on AGT: The Champions. They represent the excellence that exists within our military and veteran communities and are an inspiring example for the nation that they continue to serve through music. Most recently, their music was the subject of a PSA (Public Service Announcement) for the PGA (Professional Golfers Association of America) nonprofit organization PGA Hope, which includes their song, “Come Home.” PGA Hope introduces golf to veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being.
