About the historic Palace Theatre The Palace Theatre is approximately 35 miles outside of Pittsburgh, PA and has recently presented Cyndi Lauper, STOMP, Blue Man Group, The Monkees, America, and more. The Palace Theatre has been a major force in Westmoreland County's cultural scene for generations. Opened September 2, 1926, as the Manos Theatre, The Palace Theatre today hosts the widest variety of live entertainment in the area in a beautifully renovated 1369-seat facility.

The beautiful facility represents the work of original architect Leon H. Lempert & Son of Rochester, NY -- and remarkably, much of the original Manos Theatre remains intact, including the Lobby's candlelight chandelier and golden Grecian marble, black and white floor tiles, and the unique ticket booth at the theatre's entrance. Phase II renovations begun in 1996 included air-conditioning, new stage lighting, a state-of-the-art sound system, and more comfortable and spacious seating installed throughout the entire upper level of the theatre. The original opera boxes were replicated and will be completed by painting the hand-cast, decorative moldings and hanging velvet swags. Two original murals were refurbished alongside the theatre's Loge seats. Phase III renovations completed in September 2004 gave us the Megan's Suite, an expanded two-level suite with table seating for guests to enjoy refreshments before the show or during intermission. The Megan's Suite (http://www.thepalacetheatre.org/featuresx.html) is available for private parties and events. Megan's Suite renovations included new rest rooms for men and women on the main floor and mezzanine levels, drinking fountains, and an elevator. These projects are restoring The Palace to its original state of old-world beauty with modern day improvements, making it one of the finest theatres of its size and type in the country.

About the 10,000 Maniacs As one of rock's most critically acclaimed bands, the quintet's pop-conscious, literate and lush aesthetic helped reshape FM radio. Along with bands like R.E.M., U2, The Smiths and The Police. 10,000 Maniacs is considered one of the primary architects of the college rock sound of the 1980s and '90s.

The Jamestown, New York born group first gained widespread recognition with 1987's In My Tribe which charted at #37 - an impressive feat for a pioneering alternative group. Rolling Stone Magazine voted this album (that went on to sell over 2 million copies) in the Top 100 of the releases of the decade. The band would later sell 3 million copies in 1992 of the landmark Our Time In Eden.

10,000 MANIACS is the 30-year collaboration between Jerome Augustyniak, Steven Gustafson and Dennis Drew joined by guitarist Jeffery Erickson backing the 20-year 10,000 Maniac vocalist/songwriter Mary Ramsey for an incredible live show!
