The 2017 Piccolo Spoleto Festival comes to Kiawah! Join us on the banks of the Kiawah River at Mingo Point (876 Kiawah Island Parkway) for this special festival program that includes a full dinner buffet with oyster roast and cash bar service starting at 5:30p.m. The evening’s entertainment will feature up-tempo take on the songbook of Fats Waller and the heyday of Harlem. Bringing this rollicking music to life are some of Charleston’s most dynamic musical theater talents, featuring male singers Immanuel Houston and Jairus McClannahan and three impeccably talented female performers: Megan Pue, Tierney Breedlove, and Monique Waters. Backing up this multi-faceted ensemble are musicians Demetrius Doctor, Brandon Brooks, and Bret Belanger. Their knock-out performances will have you laughing, tapping your feet, and shouting for more, as you try to remember when singing the blues ever felt like this much fun.
