Take 6 Kick-Off William Penn Bank Summer Music Fest

For Bristol Riverside Theatre, the day the pandemic shut-down life as we know it, Cabaret just opened and the stage was filled with song, dance, and amazing theatrical talent. The pandemic forced the theatre to shut its doors and the Cabaret set remained on stage frozen in time for nearly a year. After going virtual, one of the region’s largest theatre companies is back and brings with it a new outdoor focus and huge star power.

Ten-time Grammy Award Winner Take 6 will kick off the three-month-long William Penn Summer Music Fest. Bristol Riverside Theatre, with help from sponsor William Penn, will present six outdoor summer shows that will be held at the brand-new Bristol Township Outdoor Amphitheatre. After moving to online virtual productions, Bristol Riverside Theatre brings the sound of music back to Bucks County with shows that include Take 6, Broadway Memories, Totally Awesome 80s, Broadway Ahead, 70s Flashback, and The Doo Wop Project. Take 6 kicks-things off with concerts on two consecutive nights, on Friday, June 11, and Saturday, June 12.

Take 6 (Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea, and Khristian Dentley). were heralded by Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet!.” With praise from such luminaries as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ella Fitzgerald, and Whitney Houston, the multi-platinum selling sextet has toured across the globe, collaborated across genres, and is recognized as the pre-eminent a cappella group in the world.

With 10 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, 2 NAACP Image Awards, a Soul Train Award, and more, Take 6 continues to bring extraordinary vocals to their worldwide audiences. In April 2018, the sensations released their sixteenth album, aptly titled ICONIC (SRG/Universal), and the debut of a PBS special, The Summit, alongside The Manhattan Transfer.
