The Malpass Brothers at the Paramount Theatre
The Malpass Brothers are as authentic as stone-ground grits, hush puppies & chopped pork barbecue — and they’re every bit as good! It doesn’t matter if you’re already a fan of classic old-time “real” country music when you take your seat. You will be by the time you leave the hall.
As young boys in eastern North Carolina, Christopher and Taylor Malpass soaked up the music of their granddad’s jukebox in his country store. Today, they promote the work and music of the classic country artists they treasure while creating new music and making their own mark in the lineage of a rich American cultural heritage.

This hysterical show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they see themselves on stage. Sexy and fast paced, this show is definitely for adults, but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids!
