For assistance with purchasing tickets, please call BPT at 1-800-838-3006, x. 1.
Help is available 24/7 by phone.

The ACFL&MH offers a discount for purchasing tickets in advance.  When you purchase in advance, it helps us plan for an event – promotions, volunteers, a post- performance reception, shuttle service, etc.    There is no penalty for purchasing at the door: rather there is an incentive for purchasing in advance!

You can use BPT to purchase your tickets online or by phone until 36 hours before a performance to get the advance, discounted price.  There is a modest handling charge, still below the door price.

Group rates (10 or more tickets may be arranged by calling 412-276-3456, x. 6.)

Why are they called The Red Beans & Rice Combo, you might ask…
because you can get fries or a biscuit with the combo but you’ll always choose the biscuit because that’s the way they roll – as they play a very cool mix of classic New Orleans R&B 50’s rock a la Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, Mose Allison, Tom Waits, Slim Galliard and Louis Jordan – SUPER FUN TUNES!

The Combo features the world celebrated early jazz stride pianist, Tom Roberts (a Foxburg regular on piano, whistling & vocals, along with Dave Klug on drums and his custom-built “Kluger Soundboard,” and Wayno on vocals, harmonica, & ukulele.

The fun-loving, sharp-dressed band has developed a reputation for delivering a danceable mix of New Orleans R&B, early rock & roll nuggets and barroom ballads, with a jazzy dash of Tin Pan Alley, and a generous side of wit  & humor.

Don’t wait to buy your tickets… Studio seating is limited.
Advance Sales End January 26, 8:00am.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door.
