Paris native and NBC’s America’s Got Talent runner-up, Cas Haley, will be performing a special Thanksgiving show at Three Brothers Drafthouse on Friday, November 29.
Joining Cas are three local favorites of the music scene for one great night of entertainment and original music.
Starting the night off is rock n’ roll, Americana band Pearl Street Riot, followed by the blues rock, jam band sounds of The Draggin’ Man Band and reggae rock trio The Tambourine Machine, taking the stage as main support for Haley and his band.
With this diverse line-up of different styles, talented local musicians and the elite vocals, songwriting and musicianship of Cas Haley, this is likely to be one of the best shows of the year for Paris. Don’t miss it. The show will start around 9 p.m.
Haley, who was named runner-up on season 2 of America’s Got Talent, has released three full length albums and a number of original EP’s, including a Christmas special, titled Gifts to Give, released in 2011.
His first full length album, self titled Cas Haley, was the #8 Best Selling Reggae Album on the Billboard charts, while his next record, Connection, debuted at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Best Selling Reggae Albums. Haley’s most recent work, titled La Si Dah, was released in May 2013. The latter two albums were released by Easy Star Records.
These albums are available on iTunes, Amazon and other online outlets, as well as many stores and his live shows.

The Paris Public Library will hold a special book signing, featuring Grammy award-winning opera singer, Jay Hunter Morris, on Saturday, November 30, according to library director Priscilla McAnally.
Morris was born in Paris and attended Paris High School and Paris Junior College, continuing his education at Baylor University and then the Julliard School of Music.
“Mr. Morris is a singer with the Metropolitan Opera,” McAnally said. “He is a Grammy-winning tenor whose roles have included Captain Ahab in Moby Dick, Siegfried in Wagner’s the Ring, Lennie in Of Mice and Men and Lohengrin in Lohengrin.”
He will be signing his newly published book Diary of a Redneck Opera Zinger, which is, according to Morris from the Amazon.com book disclaimer, part autobiography, part inspiration and part unrepentant potty humor.
If you’re wondering why it’s opera ‘zinger’ with a ‘z’ instead of opera ‘singer’, you’ll have to read his very entertaining and hilarious book to find out.
From 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Morris will be at the Paris Public Library — 326 South Main Street — to sign and discuss his book for his hometown fans, who will have the chance to meet him and ask questions about his career and the book.
The event is hosted by the Library Advisory Board, Paris Public Library and friends of the library.
