Martin Family Circus bring family music, entertainment to Wayne


martin-family-circusMartin Family Circus brings its unique blend of family-themed music to the Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Dec. 15.

“Martin Family Circus is a talented group of vocalists, and the show is sure to delight with a focus on the holidays,” said Tracy Straight, the executive director of the Wayne Theatre.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are $15 for adults and $5 for students.

Martin Family Circus is a vocal-driven melodic band of two parents and four kids ranging in age from 9 to 18.

Representing four generations of musical heritage, Martin Family Circus delivers soulful family harmony, steeped in traditional roots.

Grammy-winning artist Paul Martin, lead singer/guitarist of country-pop group Exile, met and married Jamie Allen, daughter of Duane Allen of Country Music Hall of Fame members The Oak Ridge Boys. Their four children were exposed early to four generations of rich musical heritage, and they watched as each child showed God-given musical talents early on.

Practice soon led to performances around the Nashville area, then appearances on national television shows like The Oak Ridge Boys’ American Legion Christmas special, “The Marty Stuart Show” and “Larry’s Country Diner.”

After a rousing performance of “Elvira” to a packed house for the Oak Ridge Boys’ induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Billboard Magazine heralded them as “singing to the rafters,” getting a crowd of seasoned performers and music industry folks to their feet.

The Martin Family Circus’ newest CD project, “Past, Present, Future,” includes classic hits that inspired them to sing, current favorites that are inspiring now, and some brand-new self-penned material that they hope will inspire a new generation.

The Wayne Theatre is located at 521 W. Main Street in Waynesboro. For more information or tickets, contact (540) 943-9999 or visit www.waynetheatre.org.
