This month features Alex Schulte and Alicia Monee.
Born and raised in the middle of the Midwest, Alex Schulte has returned to his roots here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Having just left the metropolis of Chicago in better standing than when he got there, he is eager to be playing music. Live in front of people, over the airwaves as a radio personality, or frankly live to no one but his cats Arya and Hodor, Alex knows he would indeed starve and become a statistic if he ever had to work within the establishment. Having performed both as a headliner in his own showcases, as an actor in musical theater productions, as a comedian at iO in Chicago, and as a street performer, his diversity allows him to genuinely connect to his audience regardless of the venue or medium.
Songstress, Alicia Monee, has been featured all over the United States. She has made appearances in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Chicago, and all over Eastern Iowa. Alicia Monee brings an exhilarating, deep soul and r&b sound to her listeners. Alicia has a unique sound that listeners are eager to hear over and over again! Lately she has been involved in the theatre scene, lead singer in a local band, Funkdaddies, and Cabaret in the Courtyard at Brucemore. Her fan’s favorites are coming out and listening and dancing to her music! Currently Alicia Monee is working on writing and recording her first album and will be releasing her first single and music video in the near future!!
Doors are at 6:30pm with the show starting at 7pm. Tickets are $12 available through the Orchestra Iowa ticket office, online at artsiowa.com, or at the door the evening of the event as available.
