Down the Line 14 returns to the Embassy Theatre on the evening of Saturday, Feb. 29, at 7 p.m. 

Down the Line is an event many folks look forward to every year as it provides the opportunity to see some of our elite local acts paying homage to legends of the music world. 

This year’s full female-led lineup consists of The Eliza Toth Band performing numbers from Dolly Parton, Scratch N’ Sniff paying tribute to Linda Ronstadt, The Shelly Dixon Band recreating the sound of Fleetwood Mac, Marnee August and Moser Woods performing Led Zeppelin, and Whoa, Man! taking on The Bangles. 

What sort of spin will each act add to the classic material? There’s only one way to find out. 

General admission and early access tickets for this Embassy fundraiser are on sale now. If it’s anything like years past, you better purchase them soon. 

Groove at the Embassy

Speaking of the Embassy Theatre, on Saturday, Feb. 8, the theater will host Night at the Embassy: All Black Party in the Embassy Ballroom. 

From 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., come dressed in black attire and get ready to groove with your friends to the sound of The Music Lovers Lounge DJs

Not only will the event take place in the ballroom but you can also take in the city skyline from the Rooftop Patio. Live music, hors d’oeuvres, and hanging in one of the most prestigious buildings in the Summit City … sign me up! 

Tickets are available for the event through Ticketmaster and the Embassy box office. If you’re interested in a reserved table which seats four, those are sold only at the box office. 

Winner of The Voice at Flashback

Flashback Live announced that the season eight winner of The Voice, Sawyer Fredericks, will perform at the venue on Thursday, April 2. 

Choosing Pharrell Williams as his coach, Fredricks set series iTunes sales records and became the youngest winner in history of the competition.

The 20-year-old singer-songwriter’s latest effort, Hide Your Ghost, was released in 2018 and he’s been a well-oiled road machine ever since in support. 

Whether you’re familiar with his work or not, his “free range folk” music is something to be heard. Tickets for the show are available through TicketWeb. 

UPscale Hookah Lounge

Fort Wayne’s upscale hookah lounge, Dreamers, 1407 S. Calhoun St., is a comfortable yet lively environment for hookah lovers and potential converters to come together to network and socialize in downtown. 

If that’s not cool enough for you, the venue recently began playing host to some live entertainment which adds another option to the local scene. 

If you would like to check the place out, its upcoming calendar includes Chris Worth on Jan. 17, Stand Alone Entertainment Karaoke on Jan. 20, Scott Wasvick acoustic/open jam on Jan. 21, and DJ Kenny Redd on Jan. 22.
