More than a dozen musical stars – or reasonable facsimiles thereof – will be on hand Saturday night at Stuart’s Opera House in Nelsonville for the eighth annual “A Night with the Legends.”

Sixteen onstage performers and the Legends House Band will recreate some of the most famous performances of some of the most famous singers and musical groups, with proceeds benefiting Stuart’s, which has collected donations for an ambitious expansion campaign in recent years.

This year’s special guest star tributes will include Ray Charles, Paul Simon, Merle Haggard, Beyonce, Dolly Parton, Celine Dion, Bob Seger, Neil Diamond, Kenny Rogers, Luther Vandross, Adele, Stevie Nicks, Sam Cooke, Joe Cocker, Michael Buble, Oak Ridge Boys and more.

Tribute performers are Alex Couladis, J.W. Smith, JoAnn Wolfe, Otis Cockron, Sharell Arocho, Roger Gilmore, Chris Keesey, Jared Sheets, Angela Blair, Scott McDonald, Andy Stone, Bill L’Heureux, Michael Weiser, Charlie Brown and others.

The band comprises Bill Rawlins, Adam Graham, Jared Sheets, John Lohse, Jennifer Sheets, Kay Carter, Pete Couladis, Scott Carson, Ken Edwards, Corey Young, Janice Paris, Ted Harris, Doug Carter, Kyle Slemmer and others.

Money raised through ticket sales will benefit Stuart’s, but there’s something more: the always popular vote-with-your-billfold contest, in which audience members may vote for their favorite performers, their votes weighted by the size of the accompanying donation.
