Get ready “Stone’s” fans, Harris Center for the Arts is gearing up for an evening of classic rock and roll when Classic Albums Live performs The Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers, on Sunday, January 28, at 7:30pm. 

Founded in 2003 by Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live takes the greatest albums and recreates them live on stage – note for note, cut for cut, using the best musicians. This special concert event will feature the Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers album, including “Brown Sugar,” “Wild Horses,” “Can’t You Hear Me Knocking,” and more. 


“Think of it as a recital,” says Martin. “These albums are historic and stand the test of time.” Forgoing costumes and impersonations, Classic Albums Live has found success in concentrating solely on the music. “We don’t dress up or wear any sort of costume. All of our energy is put into the music. We want the performance to sound exactly like the album,” says Martin. 

With 100+ shows a year across North America, Classic Albums Live has seen massive success in performing arts centers and theatres. Fans in Texas, Florida, 


California, New York, and central and east coast Canada have all continued to support the series and make it a sustaining, successful show. 

“We grew while others withdrew,” says Martin, commenting on the decline of concert ticket sales. “We created something that endures and connects. These albums are sacred to people. We deliver exactly what we promote – ‘note for note, cut for cut’ accuracy.” It’s this type of accountability that works for the series. 


Individual tickets range from $42-$67, including fees, and are available at the Box Office at (916) 608-6888, or online at Box Office hours are Tuesday- Friday from 12:00pm-5:00pm, and one hour before showtime. 


About Harris Center for the Arts 

Long envisioned as a critically important element for Folsom Lake College, the visual and performing arts center was initially conceived as a facility to instruct, develop, and guide talented students to become actors, musicians, dancers, visual artists, and behind-the-curtain technicians. The scope and size of the Center expanded significantly with a 2003 feasibility 


study which validated the need for a facility that could also serve as a regional arts center for the greater community. 

In 2004, the project proposal approved by the Los Rios Board of Trustees was submitted to the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office for final funding approval in the 2005-06 budget year. Construction of the $50 million project began in July 2008, supported by a State Educational Facilities General Obligation Bond, Local Measure A Bond, other District resources, and donations to the Folsom Lake College Foundation. 

In February, 2011, the Center opened as “Three Stages at Folsom Lake College” and by the end of its second full season it had already attracted over 300,000 patrons to its offerings. In August, 2012, the Los Rios District Board of Directors announced the renaming of the facility to the “Harris Center for the Arts,” honoring Chancellor Emeritus Brice Harris who, during his tenure, oversaw a doubling of the size of the District, including the development of Folsom Lake College. He, together with then President of the College Thelma Scott-Skillman, was perhaps most responsible for seeing the vision of a Regional Performing Arts Center for the community realized. 

The 80,000-square-foot center includes three stages and is located at Folsom Lake College. Before Covid-19, it hosted more than 400 events per year. The venue, initially called Three Stages at Folsom Lake College, opened in 2011. It temporarily closed in July 2020, as the pandemic disrupted entertainment venues nationwide.
