Down the Line 14
February 20, 2020
For this highly anticipated annual Fort Wayne night of music, giving, and fun, The Embassy Theatre has selected five local performers/bands for Down the Line 14, a one-night music tribute to music legends. The event, which is also a fundraiser for The Embassy, takes place Feb. 29 at 7 p.m.
Down the Line 14 showcases local talent paying respect to those artists who have inspired them, all on the world-class stage of the historic Embassy Theatre, a place where locals don’t always get a chance to play.
Launching more than a decade ago, the concert series began simply as a way to simultaneously raise money for the Embassy and highlight local talent. The response from the community was so positive that a second show was quickly scheduled. The series took on a life of its own, eventually evolving into themed nights as another way to give the shows a special meaning.
This year’s event honors women in music with five fully female-led artists/bands.
The Eliza Toth Band will perform the music of country superstar Dolly Parton. Scratch N’ Sniff, a longtime member of the scene, will take on the Linda Ronstadt catalog.
The Shelly Dixon Band, also a fixture of the local music community, are serving up several offerings from Fleetwood Mac while singer/songwriter Marnée August will be joined by Moser Woods to perform the challenging Led Zeppelin archives.
Finishing off the night, Whoa, Man!, a relatively new Fort Wayne supergroup featuring Toth, Sunny Taylor, and Teresa Lyon, will sing the hits of The Bangles.
Tickets for this all-ages show are $20 (early-entry seating before general public) and $15 general admission.
