COLDWATER – Michigan native Jeff Daniels returns to Tibbits for a single performance Saturday, November 11, featuring his own brand of entertainment, songs and stories presented in his down-to-earth style, accompanied by The Ben Daniels Band.
The show features Jeff Daniels on guitar singing many of his own songs, some poignant, some funny. The songs themselves tell stories of Daniels’ life and loves. Most were written on location during his extensive film career, offering a glimpse of the celebrities with whom he’s worked and a behind-the-scenes view of his career. In the three years since his last appearance at Tibbits there have been many new location shoots and more celebrity encounters. He closed HBO’s “The Newsroom” as Will McAvoy, for which he won an Emmy, and he played opposite Jim Carey in “Dumb and Dumber To.” Other recent projects getting ready for release include a western series on Netflix called “Godless” and a 9/11 drama series on Hulu called “The Looming Tower.”
Joining him for the show is his son’s band. Daniels mentioned, “We’ve done this several times. It never gets old. There’s a whole family aspect to this show.” The Ben Daniels Band has been noted for its originality, musicianship, and a sound that spans Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock. They have made their mark across Michigan and have toured to New York City, Washington D.C., and Nashville. Ben, considered a natural poet and songwriter in his own right, has also picked up the family trait of hard work, perseverance, and creatively challenging himself and the audience.
Daniels’ Michigan Tour will take him to the historic Tibbits Opera House. In a recent interview with WTVB’s Ken Delaney, Daniels said, “[Tibbits] is one of my favorite places. I love those old opera houses. I love how the community supports that old opera house…it’s like the gem of their community.”
Tickets for the show are $45 for the general public or $42 for Tibbits members. All prices include fees. Limited reserved tickets are available. Performance is at 7 pm. Doors to the theatre open one hour prior to performance, with seating beginning at 6:30. A cash beer and wine bar will also be available for this event.
