Rusted Root and Capitol Steps coming in November

Added THU, OCT 30TH 2014

November 15, cast your vote for Capitol Steps

Capitol Steps


It's election season—and it's the perfect time to LOL at all of our crazy politicians. So turn off the talking heads on TV, toss those campaign flyers into the trash, and come to Montalvo on Saturday, November 15, at 3pm or 7:30pm (two shows!) for some hilarious political comedy with the renowned Capitol Steps!

Congressional staffers turned comedians, the Capitol Steps travel the States satirizing the very people and places that once employed them. Over the past 30 years, they have presented thousands shows all over the country, recorded over two dozen albums, and performed for the last five presidents. The only complaints they seem to get are from the politicians and personalities NOT included in the program. Don't miss them!

Rusted Root: Ecstacy

On Thursday, November 6, at 7:30pm, join the fun as Rusted Root takes the stage in our intimate Carriage House Theatre. Inspired by folk and world music—but with a rousing sound all their own—Rusted Root’s feel-good songs transcend age, generations, and cultures. Their intoxicating rhythms are sure to get you out of your seat and dancing!

Famous for hits like “Send Me on My Way,” and “Ecstasy,” (the video above), they have recorded eight albums and sold over three million records worldwide over the course of their twenty-year-career.
