JASPER — Jasper Community Arts will present a performance by 6 Guitars at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Jasper Arts Center.

More than a concert, 6 Guitars is a pitch-perfect blend of music, comedy and characters. Just one performer portrays six unique guitar players, each representing their own style of music. Blues, jazz, rock, classical, folk, and country are all featured.

As each character shares the anecdotes and songs that define their relationship to music, the audience is treated to breathtaking musicianship, beautiful storytelling and top-notch comedy. There are even audience interactive bits tailored to each performance.

Chase Padgett, who co-wrote and performs the show, graduated from the University of Central Florida, Orlando, with a Bachelor of Arts in music in 2007 and has been a full-time actor and musician ever since. Padgett also received instruction in improv from the world famous iO training center in Chicago and performed various roles at Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and the SAK Theatre in Orlando, Florida, as an actor, improviser and musician until 2010 when his solo career demanded his focus full time. In 2014 he performed in a comedy showcase for NBC and has performed with Wayne Brady and Colin Mocherie from ‘Whose Line Is It Anyway.’

Since it premiered in 2010, 6 Guitars has been performed to roaring standing ovations. The show’s unique, but universal, message connects with any musician or music lover regardless of one’s age, background or favorite genre. This show truly has something for everyone.

Tickets — priced at $25 for adults, $23 for senior citizens and $15 for students — are available by visiting www.jasperarts.org or calling 812-482-3070.
