A Night with Janis Joplin

at Johnson County Community College

This event has ended.

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and almost overnight became the queen of rock ’n’ roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock.

A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences. You’ll be dazzled by this remarkable cast, performing such unforgettable songs as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Piece of My Heart," "Mercedes Benz," "Cry Baby" and "Summertime."

The concerts will take place in Yardley Hall, located at the Carlsen Center on the Johnson County Community College campus. The matinee concert starts at 2 p.m. and the second at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12. Meet & Greet upgrade packages are also available.
