The Van-Dells and The Next Generation
when: Sat, January 22, 2011
where: Ronald And Lynda Nutt Theatre
This concert is a benefit for Fort Craig Elementary School in Maryville to raise money for an outdoor classroom.
The Van-Dells are "The Nation's #1 Rock & Roll Review." They have been entertaining audiences of all ages with their unique blend of comedy, costume changes, choreography and tight harmonies for over 3 decades. The Van-Dells have been called "The Three Stooges set to music."
There are three main characters, each bringing their own special dimension to the show. Stacy P. Todd, better known as Duke, Mark Barnett and Glenn Bowles. This fun, fast paced show begins in the 50’s and runs through the 60’s. Backed-up by a five piece band, the shows are broken into segments like a two act play. The Van-Dells begin their show representing the last graduating class of Van-Dell High School, which closed down in 1958. Dressed in letter sweaters, The Van-Dells combine comedy with songs from the Rock and Roll era of the 50's. In the second show they take the audience on a nostalgic trip through the "Glitter and Gold" period that made the 60's famous. When The Van-Dells hit the stage, it is nonstop action from start to finish. The shows are designed to please audiences of all ages. The group is completely self-contained, carrying their own lights and sound.
With The Van-Dells…“It’s our show that makes us #1!”
The Van-Dells Next Generation consist of Kasey Todd, Travis Ricks, Jaron Brumley, and Kyle Todd. The four members of the Next Generation are the sons of the original members of the Van-Dells. From the time they walk onto the stage The Van-Dells Next Generation deliver a high energy show that takes you back to the beginning days of The Van-Dells carrying on the history of the band their fathers started over 36 years ago.
