Description

Spend a romantic evening at The Barnhill Center with the people and music you love. 

 

This special event starts with a Sweet Valentine Treat, and champagne or coffee, in Morriss Hall with music to set an amorous mood.

 

Then you’ll move into Hasskarl Auditorium for a cozy concert by Bill Griese, known as “Sweet Baby James.” Settle into the comforting songs that were made popular by six-time Grammy winner, James Taylor.

 

The Nashville-based Sweet Baby James is America’s #1 tribute to James Taylor. The artist has more Facebook followers than all other JT tribute acts combined. He is also #1 on Instagram and YouTube.

 

Griese is not a James Taylor impersonator. He just happens to have a singing voice that closely resembles Taylor’s voice. His amazing guitar performance is also a close match to Taylor’s original recordings. 

 

Using only his guitar and his spot-on vocals, Griese delivers the timeless music in a natural, authentic way. His spellbound audiences often sing along, and they are invited to request their favorite songs. Amazingly, Griese takes the impromptu requests and belts-out any James Taylor song, perfectly recalling the lyrics to all.

 

It’s a show you must hear to believe. Expect the ultimate James Taylor experience with favorites like "Fire & Rain," "You've Got a Friend," "Shower the People," "How Sweet It Is," "Steamroller," “Handy Man” and many more.

 

Whether you're a diehard fan or a casual listener, this show is not to be missed!

The Barnhill Center
Built-in 1925, in the grand architectural style of Beaux-Arts Classical Revival, the Simon Theatre provided a splendid setting for many theatrical performances, film screenings and ballroom dances. The James Simon family commissioned Houston architect Alfred C. Finn, whose career included designing a number of prominent Houston buildings as well as the San Jacinto Monument, to design the theatre for the community of Brenham. Today, after a meticulous million-plus dollar renovation, the glamour and grand style lives on for future generations in the newly named Barnhill Center at Historic Simon Theatre.
