FAIRFIELD, Conn. – With musicians returning one, five and even 10 years later, the Fairfield Theatre Company credits its success with investing in the artists.
“The energy is amazing, much love to everyone at FTC. It’s all about the music. As with all the best moments in life, it is simply a matter of ambience. It takes a lot of hard work to make something appear effortless, and FTC has done it right. Thank you, again,” said Dave Wakeling of The English Beat.
February holds six performers who have graduated from StageOne and moved into FTC’s 640-seat capacity venue. Dana Fuchs returns Friday, Feb. 26 with Popa Chubby, both of whom have brought their talents to Fairfield over the years.
“Fairfield Theatre, I'm ready for lucky number seven! That's right, my seventh show at one of my favorite venues, playing for some of my favorite people! This time in the new Warehouse doing a double bill with my dear friend and talent extraordinaire, Popa Chubby,” said Fuchs.
Other artists who are ready to go from StageOne to The Warehouse are Keller Williams on Thursday, Feb. 11; Tom Tom Club on Friday, Feb. 12; Jackie Greene on Saturday, Feb. 13; The Soul Rebels with Talib Kweli on Friday, Feb. 19; and Leon Russell on Saturday, Feb. 20.
“FTC is absolutely thrilled to be an important part of so many extraordinary artists’ careers and we never take that for granted. Our new venue, The Warehouse, allows us to do even more as so many of our favorite artists have the opportunity to play the larger venue to their growing base of fans. It also allows us to introduce more and more new artists to the area. It’s a beautiful thing,” said FTC Executive Director John Reid on the reputation FTC has built over the past 14 years.
FTC is located at 70 Sanford St., Fairfield.
