“Ricky Nelson Remembered”
Starring Matthew and Gunnar Nelson
Thursday, November 8, 2012 – 7:30 p.m.
More than 25 years ago, Ricky Nelson died in a plane crash.
Through his sons, Nelson’s legacy lives on.
was America’s first TV heartthrob. The Nelson
family achieved immortality with “The Adventures of Ozzie &
Harriet,” the longest-running sitcom in television
history. Earlier, Ozzie and Harriet had enjoyed big band success
and had scored a #1 hit in 1934.
Ricky emerged from the series and established himself as one of
the most important rock artists of the 50s, 60s and 70s. A Rock
and Roll Hall of Famer, Nelson is the only artist in history to
have a #1 TV show, #1 movie, and #1 song all in the same week.
Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, Ricky’s twin
sons, are triple-platinum recording artists in their own right.
“After the Rain” was the hit debut album by “Nelson,” the band
Matthew and Gunnar led in the early 1990s. They zoomed to #1
with “(I Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection,” which
landed the Nelson family in the Guinness Book of World Records
as the only family to reach #1 record status in three successive
generations. “Ricky Nelson Remembered”
is a multi-media concert experience which
includes all of Ricky Nelson’s biggest hits.
Southern Fried Chicks
Featuring Etta May, Sonya White and Karen Mills
Thursday, September 13, 2012 – 7:30 p.m.
Southern Fried Chicks
comedy tour stars Etta May and two special
guests from the “Chick’s Hen House”: Sonya White and Karen
Etta May has been described as “Minnie Pearl with a
migraine.” Winner of the prestigious American Comedy Awards
Stand-up Comic of the Year, she has appeared on “Oprah,” “CMT,”
“Comic Strip Live,” plus many others. She is an audience
favorite of XM and Sirius radio comedy channels and on
syndicated radio shows, “The Bob and Tom Show” and “The
Rick and Bubba Show.”
Sonya White, originally from Virginia, combines her Southern
charm with big city smarts to
create an act
that is clean, fun and high energy. Her observational comedy is
enhanced by dead-on impersonations and sound effects ranging
from favorite celebrities to pets she wished she could keep in
her Chicago apartment. Sonya has been a featured comedian on
CBS’s “Star Search” and NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”
Karen Mills is a native Tennessean and makes one thing
clear through her clean and clever comedy: “I am not a Southern
Belle, unless I need to be.” She is a veteran comedian who has
worked with Jon Stewart and was a contributing writer for “The
Rosie O’Donnell Show.”
Since the debut of their one-hour comedy special on CMT, the
Southern Fried Chicks have played to venues packed with people
and laughter. Life and love in the USA has never been funnier
than when the original “desperate housewives” give their points
of view. Think Blue Collar Comedy Tour with better hair and
