ARTS OF Southern Kentucky announced that Tyrone Dunn and Brick House will perform a tribute to Lionel Richie and the Commodores at the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC) on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at 7:30 p.m. The concert, sponsored by South Central Bank, will feature classic hits including “Brick House,” “Three Times Lady,” and “Easy,” plus songs from Lionel Richie’s record-breaking solo career, including “Dancing on the Ceiling,” “All Night Long,” and “Hello.” Tickets ($20/$30) went on sale Friday, August 25, and are available online at www.theyskypac.com, by calling (270) 904-1880, or in person at 601 College St. in downtown Bowling Green. 


Bowling Green native Tyrone Dunn has appeared on several Orchestra Kentucky Retro Series concerts (Philly Soul, Men of Motown, and Best of Retro), participated in the National Corvette Museum’s 25th Anniversary festivities, and has fronted the legendary party band, Kin-Foke, for nearly two decades. He will be joined by backup vocalists Lisa Oliver-Gray and Jannelle Means, keyboardists Amy Frederick and Adrian Heil, saxophonist Bill Bitner, guitarist John McCracken, electric bass player Dave Allen, drummer Laneus Franklin, and percussionist Quentin Farris as Brick House for this new concert concept. 


In 2020, with the assistance of the Warren County Fiscal Court and Judge Michael O. Buchanon, Orchestra Kentucky assumed management of the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC). The new organization, which also includes BG Onstage and the Ramsey Theatre Company, is titled Arts of Southern Kentucky and is led administratively and artistically by Jeffrey Reed. 

The Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center is a premier performing arts venue located in downtown Bowling Green, KY. The facility includes the Rita and Jim Scott Concert Hall, a 1,700-seat state-of-the-art auditorium; the Goodwin Gallery, the primary art exhibition space; the Renshaw Education Center, which houses the Carol Wedge Studio Theater – a flexible 2,600 square foot space for intimate productions and gatherings; several multi-functional rehearsal halls and classrooms; and the Denny and Carol Wedge Children’s Art Gallery. 

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, provides operating support to Arts of Southern Kentucky with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. GN
