The “Purple Madness” is the ultimate celebration of the most widely beloved entertainer and profoundly influential artist of all-time. Bobby Miller presents an electrifying performance that can be best described as, high energy and a “must see” performance.
The Prince Purple Madness Tribute Show has all but perfected every last nuance in recreating the sights and sounds of the artist Prince.
It is with great honor and utmost reverence that The Prince Tribute Band was formed. For anyone who wasn’t fortunate enough to have witnessed a Prince live show, the experience was undeniably one of the best live performances on the planet. It was with this idea in mind that Bobby Miller chose to re-create some of Prince’s most memorable concert moments. The Production team consists of Bobby Miller as the artist, backed by some of the most talented dancers and musicians that have toured the US and abroad. Collectively, the team consists of over a 100 years of music experience. The group lovingly describes their show as a performance that is second to none.
Chamber officials are inviting the public to bring your lawn chairs to sit back and relax to great entertainment.
