NRBQ on Friday, September 29 at 8:00 p.m. NRBQ, which stands for New Rhythm and Blues Quartet, has often been called a national treasure, which may be why the band’s music has attracted legions of devoted fans worldwide. Their top hit songs include “Ridin’ in My Car,” “It Was An Accident,” “I Want You Bad,” “Me And The Boys,” and “Get That Gasoline Blues.” Tickets at @nrbqheadquarters

Lez Zeppelin on Saturday, September 30 at 8:00 p.m. The quartet  has received critical acclaim as one of the most exciting live acts around, becoming the first all-female rock act to pay homage to Led Zeppelin. Lez Zeppelin stays true to the legendary rock band's blistering arrangements and monstrous sound, note-for-note.

Crystal Theatre presents “Tintypes”, a community theatre production at The Norwalk Inn (99 East Ave.) on Friday, September 29 and Saturday, September 30 at 7:00 p.m. Norwalk’s theatre and Norwalk’s inn are joining forces in a brand-new collaboration that returns dinner theatre to Fairfield County at long last! This rarely produced musical enjoyed a successful run on Broadway in 1980. Recognizable tunes ("Yankee Doodle", "Meet Me in St. Louis", "Toyland", "El Capitan", "You're a Grand Old Flag", and more) coalesce with some of the more unheard of, beautiful early-20th century melodies. Chronicling the growing pains of a nation, Tintypes is a tune-filled panorama; a musical melting pot; the Great American Songbook come to life. It offers snapshots – tintypes, if you will – of America in its last Age of Innocence. This Tony-nominated, nostalgic musical revue takes us back to turn-of-the-century America and is a brew of popular songs from 1890 to 1917. Boasting a top-tier cast of five local performers, a live onstage band, and full buffet dinner, tickets can be purchased at Photo Credit: Laszlo Balazs @crystaltheatre_ct
