The Government Inspector

A Frenzy of Cover-Ups in Hilarious Proportions

A farce in the truest sense of the word, The Government Inspector follows the exploits of a small-town mayor and his cronies as they get word that an inspector sent from the state would be examining their town incognito.

Terrified that their massive corruption will be discovered, the mayor and his gang of officials mistake a low-level bureaucrat staying at a local inn as the inspector. Hilarity ensues as they try to bribe, seduce, and dupe him in this case of mistaken identity.

Tommy Emmanuel, CGP with special guest Joe Robinson

“If you like guitar playing, it simply doesn’t get any better than Tommy.” – Jason Isbell

October 13, 2019

Doors @ 7pm, Show @ 8pm


Tommy Emmanuel has achieved enough musical milestones to satisfy several lifetimes. Or at least they would if he was the kind of artist who was ever satisfied. At the age of six, he was touring Australia with his family band. By 30, he was a rock ‘n’ roll lead guitarist burning up stadiums in Europe. At 44, he became one of five people ever named a Certified Guitar Player by his idol, music icon Chet Atkins.

Tommy has developed a style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band—covering drums, bass, rhythm, and lead guitar and a vocal melody simultaneously. No loop pedals, no overdubs, just one man and ten fingers. While thousands of fans have spent years trying to unpack and imitate Tommy’s technique, for him, it’s just the delivery system. His approach is always song and emotion first, his music the embodiment of his soulful spirit, sense of hope and his love for entertaining.

Today, he plays hundreds of sold-out shows every year. All the while, Tommy has hungered for what’s next. When you’re widely acknowledged as the international master of the solo acoustic guitar, what’s next is Accomplice One, an album of collaborations with some of the finest singers, songwriters and, yes, guitarists alive today.

This event is produced by Jade Presents.
