It’s special to when you get to have a musician like Billy Cobham in town. It’s a truly cultural event, his band is from England, France, Italy and Brazil – and Cobham has himself lived in Switzerland for 20 years now.

The main thing though, is that a group like this shows an audience what it’s like to experience a great night at the Opera House. And this band is truly great, led by one of the most iconic and influential musicians in jazz-rock history.
If you’re not familiar with Billy Cobham, and what a tidal wave of a show he delivers, here’s some more info.
Two extra treats! Mr. Cobham will be visiting SoundCheck Records downtown at 5 PM, so be sure to bring any vinyl you might have!
The other thing is that The Allentown/Bethlehem BrewWorks will be offering a complimentary beer-tasting during the show. We’re going to have some fun.
Cobham is only playing 2 dates on the East Coast this year, New York (the Blue Note) and here at the Mauch Chunk Opera House. Can’t get much more exclusive than that – don’t miss it!
