Johnny Mercer Tribute Concert

February 7, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$20 – $52

It has been said that it is almost impossible to get through the day without hearing one Johnny Mercer song—and why would you want to? Georgia’s own Johnny Mercer wrote the lyrics to over 1,400 songs, including four Academy Award-winners. From the light-hearted “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby” and “Jeepers Creepers” to the cinematic “Hooray for Hollywood” and the timeless “Moon River,” Mercer wrote words and music for an American century. Hard-bop trumpeter and vocalist Joe Gransden and a special guest (to be announced), join the Georgia State University Jazz band, will pay tribute to Mercer’s incomparable legacy by performing a selection of his many hits.
