UTICA, N.Y. (Oct. 9, 2019) – Everyone is invited to enjoy An Evening with STYX on Sunday, November 10 at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the event will be used to benefit both Stanley Theatre and Valley Health Services.
Raffle tickets will be available for purchase, $5 for one ticket or $20 for five tickets, to enter to win a STYX concert tour, vintage baseball style, jacket valued at $300 as well as STYX Live 3-Disc Special Edition DVD. Filmed on November 9, 2010 at the historic Orpheum Theater in Memphis, T.N., this stunning show captures STYX performing their classic multi-platinum seventies albums, The Grand Illusion and Pieces of Eight, live in their entirety for the first time, valued at $85.
The six men comprising STYX have committed to “Rockin’ the Paradise” together with audiences far and wide by entering their second decade of averaging over 100 shows a year, and each one of them is committed to making the next show better than the last. STYX draws from
over four decades of barn burning chart hits, joyous singalongs and hard-driving deep cuts.
Like a symphony that builds to a satisfying crescendo, a STYX set covers a wide range of stylistic cornerstones. From the progressively sweeping splendor of songs such as “The Grand Illusion,” “Blue Collar Man,” “Lady,” “Miss America,” “Man in the Wilderness,” “Crystal Ball,” “Come Sail Away,” and “Renegade,” the band draws on an unlimited cache of ways to immerse one’s mind and body in their signature sound.
“It all comes back to the chemistry,” said bassist/vocalist Ricky Phillips. “The legacy of this band will be that it brought joy to millions of people,” notes drummer Todd Sucherman. Observes keyboardist/vocalist Lawrence Gowan, “We’ve always tried to explain why this is this happening. It’s obviously a multitude of factors, but the main one is that our show is really good! And if it’s really good, they’re going to come to see it again.”
Tickets start at $50 and are on sale now. They can be purchased at the Stanley Theatre Box Office, at TheStanley.com, at (315) 724 – 4000 or on Ticketmaster.

About The Stanley Theatre
For nearly a century, The Stanley Theatre has brought the community together with live concerts, Broadway shows, musicals, ballets, movies, graduations and recitals. Today, The Stanley Theatre operates as a not-for-profit organization run by the Central New York Community Arts Council. Originally built as a movie theatre, The Stanley opened its doors in 1928 with 2,963 seats, a grand entry staircase that resembles the main staircase of the Titanic, a gold leaf interior and terra cotta and tiled mosaic exterior. Stanley Theatre was designed by renowned architect Thomas Lamb, whose remaining creations include The Stanley Theatre, Proctor’s Theatre and The Landmark Theatre.
