Heart & Soul

The Tucson Premium Outlets mall in Marana has partnered with the Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance to bring live music to the mall every Saturday night from 5-8 p.m.

The Tucson Premium Outlets Concert Series supports local musicians with the opportunity to perform weekly in the community’s largest and only outlet shopping center.  The series strives to schedule a wide range in music genres, from country to rock and jazz to classical.

On Saturday, Jan. 7, the classic rock duo of Heart & Soul performs. Gary Roberts and EJ Loveres perform a wide range of music ranging from current/top-40 music to funky soulful contemporary music to blues, rock and more. According to their bio, “they play songs that are timeless and that many of you know by Heart and Soul.”

Loveres plays acoustic guitar and has a voice that has been compared to Bruno Mars and Michael Jackson. Roberts plays both electric bass or electric guitar and lays down the rhythm, nailing the groove to the ground, and adds his own lead vocals and harmonies. Gary, a studied music scholar from his college days, brings a wealth of musical versatility to the performance.

Good Question bring a mix of rock and country to the stage on Jan. 14. This classic rock, R&B and country music cover band has a wide range of styles for all kinds of musical preferences. You’ll hear your favorites, whether it’s George Strait, the Rascals, Jimmy Buffet, the Allman Brothers, Robert Palmer, Tom Petty, the Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sam & Dave or others. The band’s versatility and variety of songs allows for custom shows unique to the audience.

No stranger to Marana, Greg Spivey performs on Jan. 21. Spivey 

has been entertaining Southern Arizonans for years, including a few shows for the town of Marana. His current four-piece ensemble is one of the most sought after groups in Southern Arizona. Greg’s sense of humor will keep you laughing while his music keeps you dancing.

Annon & The Late Show close out the month on Jan. 28.
