There are three art exhibits currently going on at the Beverly Arts Center. The work of mj loftus can be found in the Bridge Gallery through Sept. 16.

Tributosaurus takes the stage at the Beverly Arts Center for a CSN&Y tribute show unlike any other.
Tributosaurus stomps onto the Beverly Arts Center stage tonight with music that recalls one of rock’s first “super groups”—Crosby, Stills Nash and Young. David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young hit the music scene during the 1960s and remain huge stars with smooth, easily recognizable melodies and harmonies. “Their first recording, more than 40 years ago, was You Don’t Have to Cry, and they first sang it at a party at Joni Mitchell’s,” said Chris Neville, who sings and plays keyboards for Tributosaurus. Curt Morrison, Dan Leali, Jon Paul and Matt Spiegel (who also is sports radio host on WSCR The Score), complete the Tributosaurus lineup. The extensive list of bands Tributosaurus honors with dozens of well-honed tribute …

Roger McGuinn, the legendary 1960s rock icon, Chicago native and original member of the Byrds, returns to Beverly Arts Center with his wonderfully soft yet powerful voice for an evening of most memorable song and conversation. SouthScene spoke with McGuinn this week about his music, life and concerts. For starters, his last name is pronounced McGwinn. "That's how our family has always said it," McGuinn said. He was born Jim McGuinn, but during the rock era, a guru urged him to change it to Roger, a better fit with the universe. Asked if he still follows the guru, McGuinn explained, "No, I've returned to a more personal relationship with God, Jesus." Asked about the 1960s before the Byrds were universally recognized, McGuinn recalled the …

Authors Royko in Orland Park, Renje in Tinley Park and Berry in Evergreen Park reveal compelling fact and fiction in their novels at free library events.
Legendary 1960s rock icon, original member of the Byrds and native Chicagoan Roger McGuinn returns to Beverly Arts Center for what promises to be a great evening of song and talk. No doubt, McGuinn will, as in the past, sing classic Byrds favorites including “Mr. Tambourine Man” and “Turn! Turn! Turn!” An extraordinary guitarist, count on McGuinn for some show-and-tell about his self-designed seven-string guitar, famous for the opening chords in the two songs mentioned above and for sounds few guitarists can create on standard instruments. With his still classic voice that could melt icicles, McGuinn, approaching 70, remains the consummate entertainer.
