The irreverent musical-theater troupe from Washington, DC, will perform in a fundraiser in Annapolis to benefit student financial aid.
The former "X Factor" contestant from Riva will perform March 2 with Nick Harrison.
The Whiskey in Annapolis will host David Correy, of X Factor fame, on Saturday night. The singer, a favorite in this area, was reportedly born in Brazil and adopted by a Riva couple. His appearance on X Factor gained him recognition for what his website describes as "urban rock"—and Correy is known for his unique blend of hip-hop, rock and pop. Many locals were upset when he was eliminated from the show. Correy's "homecoming" concert on Saturday will also feature Nick Harrison, another Marylander, and the show starts at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 and available online for those age 21 and older. Check out other dates to see Correy on his website. See more:
