The Riviera announces new upcoming concerts coming to downtown theater

July 27, 2022

Popular musical talent added to lineup coming to King Street throughout September

The Riviera, Charleston’s 1930s Art Deco theater, is excited to announce its new upcoming shows with Jimmie Vaughan on Friday, September 23rd at 8 pm and Andy McKee on Monday, September 26th at 8 pm. The concerts are open to ages 18 years and older, and tickets are available for purchase on Ticketmaster.

In true Texas fashion, four-time Grammy-winner Jimmie Vaughan has helped breathe new life into the music that has been his lifeline all these decades, becoming a hero to those who cherish America’s real gift to musical history.  ”When I talk about country and blues, they’re the same thing,” Jimmie Vaughan says. “When I was a kid, I didn’t understand the difference. Everybody always asked me, ‘Why do you want to play blues? Why don’t you play country?’…And the answer is, it’s American music. I’m tired of trying to pigeonhole everything. I want to bring it together; it comes from the same place.”

Andy McKee entertains both the eye and the ear as he magically transforms the steel string guitar into a full orchestra via his use of altered tunings, tapping, partial capos, percussive hits and a signature two-handed technique. His crossover success has helped him to achieve millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today’s most unique and influential artists.

These concerts follow on the heels of The Riviera’s previously sold-out shows, including An Evening with Jewel, The Wallflowers, and Colbie Caillat. Additional concerts and shows are to be announced in the coming months. To learn more about The Riviera and upcoming events, please visit or The Riviera’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
