Bromberg's Big Noise Festival - photo by Joe del Tufo

The air along the Wilmington Riverfront this weekend will be filled with more than just the sounds of patrons dining al fresco and little ones running to and from the Delaware Children’s Museum. For the second consecutive year, the atmosphere will be bursting with the sounds of Grammy-nominated artists for David Bromberg’s Big Noise Festival...

David Wax Museum

Wikipedia may classify David Wax Museum (DWM) as a band specializing in “Mexo-American music,” but the group’s titular front man finds the label “less than helpful.” In fact, on a recent call from his home in Charlottesville, Va., the guitarist and vocalist no longer subscribes to the notion of any genre...

Amy Helm

Boeing Boeing at Candlelight Theatre

Motown the Musical

With powerful voices and a rockin’ five-piece pit band, the current show at The Playhouse on Rodney Square is a raucous good time. The show follows the history of the Motown record label from its early precursors in the '50s, growth into a major force in the recording industry and evolution in the face of competition and a changing pop landscape...

The Wedding Singer

Theater is designed to entertain…And Wilmington Drama League’s production of The Wedding Singer does just that. You’ll definitely leave your seat satisfied and with a smile on your face. The Wedding Singer is a 2006 musical based on the 1998 Adam Sandler film with book by Tim Herlihy and music by Matthew Sklar. The plot is fairly simple and straightforward, but the actors make this production charming and fun...
