MUSIC: Delfeayo Marsalis at Knight Theater 

Thursday, Feb. 17

Is 2011 Charlotte's "Year of Marsalis"? First, saxophonist Branford Marsalis came to town for a rare show at Petra's. And now, tonight, trombonist Delfeayo Marsalis (the brother of Branford and Wynton) is hitting town to conduct his "theatrical jazz production" Sweet Thunder: Duke and Shak. The show, which features music by Delfeayo's jazz octet and acting by thespian Kenneth Brown Jr., celebrates both composer Duke Ellington and the "Bard of Avon" himself — William Shakespeare. This is definitely a must-see — and must-hear — event. $30-$42.50. 7:30 p.m. Knight Theater, 430 S. Tryon St. 704-372-1000.
