This season at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center (WHBPAC), expect to see a smorgasbord of talent. Here are just some of the stellar acts.

Friday, June 30 promises to be an electric evening when Hot Tuna hits the stage at 8 p.m. For more than four decades, Hot Tuna has played, toured, and recorded some of the best and most memorable acoustic and electric music ever. This will certainly be a raucous evening spent jamming!

Get ready for some puppy love on Sunday, July 2 at 3 p.m. when WHBPAC unleashes the Olate Dogs—a fast-paced act filled with amazing pet acrobatics.

Ziggy Marley! That’s all we need to say, right? Dance in the aisles Saturday, July 8 at 8 p.m.

Rolling Stone called Fab Faux “the greatest Beatles cover band.” You be the judge on Saturday, July 15 at 7:30 p.m. Any eager Beatle-lover will have two opportunities to experience the musical magic, with 7:30 and 10 p.m. shows.

On Saturday, July 22 at 8 p.m. Trevor Noah will swap his Daily Show desk with the WHBPAC stage. Before taking over The Daily Show, Noah was already a successful comedian in his own right.

From the loins of Frank Zappa to the WHBPAC Mainstage on Saturday, July 29 at 8 p.m., Dweezil Zappa’s birth certificate lists his religion as “musician.”

Whether you saw Hamilton: An American Musical or not, you’ll want to mark Saturday, August 5 on the calendar to see Tony Award winner Leslie Odom Jr., who portrayed Aaron Burr in the show.

Tommy Emmanuel is a noted fingerstyle guitarist and musical virtuoso, a one-man band single handily controlling the melody. Oh, and he’ll be at WHBPAC Sunday, August 6 at 8 p.m.

WHBPAC’s final performers on August 26 at 8 p.m, Le Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, is the world’s foremost all male comic ballet company, famed for performing in drag and on pointe, brings a program spoofing some of your favorite works.
