Culpeper, VA, June 13, 2016 — The State Theatre of Culpeper (the Premier Venue of the Virginia Piedmont) will host THREE significant events over the weekend of June 24, 25, 26, including Gaelic Storm in concert (Friday, 8pm), two Wes Iseli Illusion and Magic Shows (Saturday, 3pm and 8pm), and an XBOX One Madden and NBA 2015 Gaming Tournament (Sunday, 11am). The State Theatre is located at 305 S. Main Street, Culpeper VA 22701. Tickets are available by visiting The State Theatre box office Tuesday through Saturday, or online at

On Friday, June 24, at 8pm, The State Theatre will host Gaelic Storm – the chart-topping, multi-national Celtic band – currently on national tour and celebrating its latest album release, “Matching Sweaters.” The new album mixes traditional Irish music with modern influences, creating a sound that’s as wide-ranging as the band’s own audience. From bluegrass fans and country cowboys to Deadheads, rock & rollers and Celtic fanatics, Gaelic Storm has built one of the most diverse fan bases in modern music. Gaelic Storm says, “There’s a lot of variety here, and that’s why we can play country festivals, bluegrass festivals and rock festivals, and still fit in perfectly with each one.”

On Saturday, June 25, at 3pm and 8pm, The State Theatre will host Wes Iseli’s Illusion and Magic Show. Wes Iseli started his own business called Party Magic and has expanded to include other entertainers such as DJ’s, magicians, jugglers and clowns. He says he couldn’t think of a better career choice and that, “It never gets old performing all over and entertaining thousands of people each month.” Mr. Iseli performs such effects as accurately predicting the headline of a national newspaper one month in advance, and an amazing escape effect: letting the audience tie him up completely with 100 feet of rope during his live show! Wes Iseli is a USDA-certified animal trainer and magic consultant for the Carbonaro Effect show on TruTV. Tickets for each show are: $15 general admission.
