The show features Athens and Nelsonville talent playing tribute to some of music’s biggest stars with performances on the Stuart’s stage, all to raise money for Stuart’s Opera House. This is not karaoke; a full band is featured.

Organized by Alex Couladis, this event packs the Opera House each summer. This year’s “Legends” show will feature tribute performances by Elvis Presley, Al Green, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, Bobby Darin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Meatloaf, The Blues Brothers, The Spinners, Natalie Cole, and Adele.

Music for the evening’s performers will be provided by the Night with the Legends House Band featuring Bill Rawlins, Jeff Redefer, Tom Daniels and Jennifer Sheets along with Kay Carter, Pete Couladis, Scott Carson, Ken Edwards, Corey Young, Janice Paris, Allyn Reilly, Doug Carter, and “Legends” backup singers and dancers, a news release said.

This year marks the seventh year for “A Night With the Legends” at Stuart’s Opera House. The event is organized by Alex Couladis, an Athens native, CPA and business development consultant, and Stuart’s Opera House board member. Known locally for his impersonations of Elvis and Vanilla Ice, Couladis has organized fundraising events for the USO and Shade Community Center.

Taking a step beyond the usual karaoke performances that have been the highlight of these events, Couladis has gathered a group of talented local celebrity vocalists who will perform. In addition to himself, Couladis has enlisted Otis Cockron, Jared Sheets, JoAnn Wolfe, Scott McDonald, Sharell Arocho, Andy Stone, Bill L’Heureux, Charles Brown, Michael Weiser, Bekah Prater and more to perform on the historic Stuart’s stage as some of entertainment’s biggest legends, the release said.
