TRAVEL & ENTERTAINMENT: Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers “Unplugged” Show Coming to the Bankhead Theater
Nov 09, 2018
For more than five decades, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers have touched the lives of fans of all ages with chart-topping songs including their Grammy Award- winning “Broken Lady” and “All the Gold in California,” which won an American Country Music Award. The brothers will bring those and many more familiar hits to the Bankhead Theater (2400 First Street) in Livermore, CA. in their “Unplugged (sorta)” show on Friday evening, November 16, 2018.
The Gatlins grew up in Abilene, Texas where the brothers started out singing gospel music. After heading to college, Larry became the first of the three to establish himself in Nashville. He quickly made industry connections and his contract with Monument Records resulted in his first album, “The Pilgrim.” Larry was soon joined by Steve and Rudy and by 1976, as Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, they were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Their Grammy was just the beginning; the hits kept coming including “I Just Wish You Were Someone I Love, ”She Used to be Somebody’s Baby,” “Night Time Magic,” and “Love is Just a Game.”
Larry, Steve and Rudy will treat audiences at the Bankhead to the natural family harmonies and genuine stage charm that has earned them a place at the top of the industry for decades. Filling the theater with familiar country and gospel hits as well as the stories of how those songs came to be, this is a rare chance to hear the Gatlins “unplugged” in as pure a night of music as it gets.
