Performing Arts Summer Series Lineup: Christie Lenée: Friday, June 3 at 8 p.m.

She frequently supports tours with Tommy Emmanuel, Melissa Etheridge and Amy Ray (Indigo Girls) to name a few, who have all raved about her talents. $14.50-$29.50 advanced. Reserved theatre seating.
L.A.X. – Larue/AleXander: Friday, June 10 at 8 p.m.
A power trio described by reviewers as “Stevie Ray Vaughan meets the Dixie Dregs,” the longtime bandmates of L.A.X. have a powerful and energetic Blues Rock sound that covers a wide expanse of musical ground. Featuring bassist Dave Larue (Joe Satriani, John Petrucci), guitarist and lead vocalist Glenn Alexander (Max Weinberg 7, Mahavishnu Project), and drummer Van Romaine (Enrique Iglesias, Steve Morse Band). $19.50 advanced. Reserved cabaret seating.
Hot Tonic Orchestra: Saturday, June 11 at 8 p.m.
Described as Postmodern Jukebox meets Amy Winehouse, the Hot Tonic Orchestra fuses jazz with Latin rhythms, funk and soul, tied together by original arrangements. Co-led by vocalist/bassist Victoria Woods and guitarist Josh Hindmarsh, the band mixes horns and a dynamic rhythm section, performing throughout the USA and abroad in Australia and New Zealand. $9.50 advanced. Reserved cabaret seating.
Buckcherry: Friday, July 8 at 8 p.m.
SoCal hard rockers Buckcherry has traversed the interesting territory of the rock spectrum in more than two decades: classic Rock, post-grunge, punk—even a little rockabilly. The group gained popularity in the early 2000s after a run of opening shows for AC/DC and later became well known for monster hits like “Lit Up” and “Sorry.” Reformed with a new lineup in 2006, their album “15” contained their biggest crossover hits to date, “Crazy Bitch,” and their first Billboard Hot 100 top ten hit, “Sorry.” $29.50 advanced. Standing room/limited seating.
The Copper Piano Dueling Piano Show: Saturday, July 9 at 8 p.m.
This unique and wildly entertaining dueling pianos show engages audiences from young to old in a musical journey of sing-along, clap-along and dance-along song requests made by the audience themselves. Led by two talented and high-energy musicians who have played to a wide range of audiences and gatherings across the globe, this event will be a night full of laughs, singing, and pure fun! $19.50 advanced. Reserved cabaret seating.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by phone at (727) 587-6793, online at LargoArts.com, or at the CPPAC Box Office located at 105 Central Park Drive in Largo.
