“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. Ricky Nelson 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.

The Southern Fried Chicks comedy tour stars Etta May and two special guests from the “Chick’s Hen House”: Sonya White and Karen Mills.

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 bigger attitude!
