An Evening with Martin Zellar

Friday, Apr 20 at 7:30 pm

Tickets range from $30-34 

Immediatly after graduation from high school, Martin Zellar moved to Minneapolis and formed the country-rock back The Gear Daddies with friends and fellow Austinites, Nick Ciola, Billy Dankert and Randy Broughten.  The Gear Daddies had some success, a lot of fund and considered themselves lucky to have been a part of the 1990's Twin Cities Music Scene. They amicably parted ways in 1992. Martin went on to record and perform as a solo artist with his band The Hardways.  That's what he continues to do today and is still having fun!

The Fabulous Armadillos - Takin' It to the Limit

Wednesday, May 9 at 7:30 pm

The Fabulous Armadillos came out of their shell in 2006 and have since established a large and loyal following in Central Minnesota with their spot on recreations of songs from many genres of music from Country to Motown to Heavy Metal to 70's Soft Rock and do them just like you remember. Close your eyes and you are listening to all those vinyl records again or your AM/FM radio. They have now played over 44 themes at that theater and continue to perform at many more venues in the Midwest (and even in Mexico!) with each show gaining them new fans and enjoying their brand of fun and entertaining, yet musically spot on performances.
