Join us for Free concert of Robby Vee

on Jan. 9, Saturday night, 7:00 pm at the Historic Ironwood Theatre.
Robby Vee "The Prince Of Twang” was born Robert Velline named after his father Bobby Vee. He is recognized by both the American and Canadian Rockabilly Hall of Fames and has been performing his unique style of Rock-n-Roll music for years on stages across the globe. Having been on tour with the legends and architects of rock-n-roll, Robby has learned from, and shared credits and stages with the best. Robby is known for combining elements of his vast repertoire and telling stories that bridge the generation gap from ‘the roots of Rock-n-Roll to ‘the new sounds of Americana music of today’. Claude Hall, radio-TV editor of Billboard Magazine writes, “If this guy had been around during the era of Elvis, he would have given Elvis a run for his money."
And IT'S FREE! to all participants, their family and friends, our volunteers and the entire community. Robby Vee is bought to you by Paul Sturgul - Elder law attorney.

Once again SISU Ski Fest has JD Bass Entertainment for start line and "Finnish" line announcing for 2016 races. Mary Hitt of Hitt's Fine Furniture is graciously offering her store as a hub for "Finnish" line activities.
