Prince tribute cover band and ‘Purple Rain’ motorcycle coming to historic Opera house

January 14 @ 8:00 pm

The Woodward Opera House in downtown Mount Vernon is ready to transport event goers back to the ‘80s with The Prince Project: A Prince and the Revolution Tribute Band on Friday, Jan. 14, at 8 p.m.; doors open at 7.

With the electric performance of lead singer and entertainer Shane Golden, guests will feel like they’re in the audience at Prince’s acclaimed “Purple Rain” concert. Golden has performed across the U.S. in local, regional and national productions and shows. He is a former contestant on the hit TV show American Idol, where he was a top 40 performer. After being discovered by a national talent scout, Shane competed in the Arts International Showcase in Orlando, in which he won individual best overall adult actor, TV commercial actor, Creative Runway Model, and Improve categories. Golden is also acting in movies across the U.S. His two most recent films are Netflix’ “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” produced by Denzel Washington and starring Viola Davis, and “Sweet Girl” starring Jason Mamoa.

Backed up by a group of amazingly talented and accomplished musicians playing the roles of Wendy (Lea Nesbit, guitar and backing vocals), Dr. Fink (Michael Lesko, keyboards and backing vocals), Bobby Z (Dave Fox, drummer), Dez Dickerson (Wayne Smith, lead guitar) and Brownmark (Stefan Johnson, bass guitar and backing vocals), concert goers will dance and sing along with the band to all of Prince’s most memorable early ‘80s music – authentic to the original Revolution in every way. Together with a dazzling light show, costume changes, giveaways and audience interaction, this two and a half hour jammed packed authentic “purple” experience is like no other tribute band on the market.

The event will also include a special photo opportunity with Prince’s motorcycle which will be on display in the promenade, and a cash/credit bar.

Tickets are $30 general admission; the main floor is open for dancing with limited seating and balcony seating will be open. To learn more or to purchase tickets, visit or call the Mount Vernon Arts Consortium box office at 740-462-4278.
