The Pastime Theatre in Winfield is excited to announce that performances will be returning to The Pastime Theatre stage this July!

July 31st at 7pm, the Pastime Theatre will begin its comeback with local talent favorites and Walker County based country rock band BACKDRAFT. BACKDRAFT has performed all over Alabama and neighboring states. This concert is not part of the original concert series that had been postponed. Tickets for this performance will be $10.

As part of the original 2020 concert series, The Band Steele has been rescheduled for August 21 at 7pm. Tickets to The Band Steele are $25. The Band Steele is the singer/songwriter duo of Bo Steele and Ben Rubino.  Both are Alabama natives from Double Springs.  Their original track “Good Times” is featured in the John Travolta/Sharon Stone film “Life on the Line”.  In addition to performing nationally, the Band Steele enjoys performing at our military bases and their latest single “Sit Awhile” is a tribute to the men and women that serve. The Band Steele celebrated its first Top 30 at Country Radio with “Waitin’ On Sunshine” (MusicRow Country Breakout Chart) in March 2020, and its second close behind with “You’re Gonna Have to Miss Me” in October 2020.

Finishing out the 2020 concert series that had been postponed due to the pandemic will be the 7 Bridges Band on September 11 at 7pm. Tickets are $35 each. Dinner will be offered prior to this show at an additional $20 per person. This band is a stunningly accurate tribute to the music of The Eagles.  They faithfully recreate the experience of an Eagles concert from their most prolific period. The Eagles are arguably one of America’s most famous bands with their music spanning over five decades.  7 Bridges is recognized as the “Ultimate Eagles Experience”.   Rolling Stone Magazine has called them “the greatest Eagles tribute band on earth”. Mary Hyche, Pastime Theatre Chairman says, “The 7 Bridges Band is our most requested repeat performers.”

We’ve missed you and can’t wait to see you at The Pastime. Call 205-487-3002 for tickets and info. Previously purchased tickets are still good

Atlanta-based Chi-Town Transit Authority will bringthe legendary sounds of the band Chicago to the Pastime Theatre in Winfield, May 18, 2019, at 7:00 p.m.

This seven-piece band has been wowing audiences at performing arts showcases with renditions from the famed “rock band with horns.” Chi-Town Transit Authority plays the big hits, many fan favorites, and the soulful and rocking deeper cuts found in early albums. This tribute band realizes Chicago is a blend of a lot of things, rock ‘n roll, jazz, bebop, and classical music. Given this, they take great pains in honing their craft, and rely on listening to live concerts rather than albums to recreate that “Chicago” iconic sound.  The band Chicago is known for hits such as “Just You ‘n’ Me,” “Saturday in the Park,” “You’re the Inspiration,” “Hard Habit to Break” and many more. The band has a tremendous music catalog spanning decades. 

In addition to the concert, there will be a preshow dinner. Reservations are required. Dinner cost is $20 per person and dinner guests will be allowed to enter the theatre first for prime seating. Dinner starts at 5:00 p.m.
We are thrilled to have Chi-Town Transit Authority come to our stage and feel this will be a concert that all ages will enjoy”, said Mary Hyche, Pastime Theatre board chairman.   Advance tickets are on sale now. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased in Winfield at the Pastime Theatre office, Winfield City Hall, Gold Connection and in Hamilton at Town Square Jewelry. Tickets can be reserved by phone and also be purchased online at itickets.com. For more information call 205-487-3002.
