UPCOMING EVENTS

The Grascals -
Bluegrass Music
10/21/17 7:00 p.m.
The Grascals make music that is
entirely relevant to the here and now,
yet immersed in traditional values of
soul and musicianship. It’s a unique
sound that has earned three Grammy®
nominations and two Entertainer of the
Year awards from the International
Bluegrass Music Association, as well
as national media attention that seems
to perpetually elude acts entrenched in
niche genres. Such appearances
include The Tonight Show with Jay
Leno, Fox & Friends, The Late Late
Show with Craig Ferguson, and CBS’
The Talk. All the while, stages that
represent the strongest bastions of
tradition continually welcome them, as
evidenced by the over 150
performances on the Grand Ole Opry.
Honors also include performing twice
for President George W. Bush and at
President Barack Obama’s inaugural
ball at the Smithsonian.

Gospel Music
10/28/17 7:00 p.m.

Lip Sync Battle -
11/4/17  Time - 7:00 p.m.

Area First Responders will be
challenging each other in hopes of, not
only taking home the coveted 1st Place
Winner trophy, but a sizeable cash
award for their own department.  There
will also be cash awards for 2nd, 3rd,
4th, and 5th place winners.

The premise is simple – participants
(groups of 4 or more) mime the vocals
of popular music while performing on
stage in front of an appreciative
audience. The fun comes from seeing
just how enthused our local firemen,
EMT’s, policemen, etc., are to impress
the crowd and win a prize. The great
thing about a lip sync is that you don’t
actually need any real talent, just a
desire to perform.  We strongly
encourage creative costumes because
the crowd is there to enjoy a show and
their response will be considered in
the selection of winners.  Everything is
in the spirit of fun and all performances
(lyrics, dancing, costumes, etc.) MUST
be “family-friendly”.

The Hoppers -
Gospel Music
11/18/17 7:00 p.m.

The Hoppers have been a mainstay in
the field of gospel music for more than
50 years. Claude and Connie Hopper
began making their way around North
America on a bus in 1957 with The
Hopper Brothers & Connie.

Over the years, the Hopper Brothers
and Connie welcomed and parted with
musicians and singers who went on to
acclaimed service in the gospel music.
Eventually Connie and Claude’s two
sons, Dean and Michael, joined them
full-time as lead vocalist and drummer
to form The Hoppers. Kim Greene’s
powerhouse soprano voice was added
to the group in 1989, after she and
Dean were married.

With classic family harmonies that stay
true their southern gospel roots, their
sound has progressed to new heights
with each recording. Throughout the
‘90s, the group began to see their
songs achieve widespread success
with number one Southern Gospel hits
including: “Milk and Honey,” “Here I
Am,” “Anchor to the Power of the
Cross,” and ”Mention My Name.” Since
that time, The Hoppers have received
numerous accolades including Mixed
Group of the Year from the Heart’s
Aflame Awards, Diamond Awards,
Singing News Fan Awards, and the
Southern Gospel Music Association.

The Hoppers have been nominated for
GMA Dove Award four times, and in
1998 Connie was presented with the
prestigious Marvin Norcross award,
which is given to those with excellence
in “Devotion to family, service to
Church, and contributions to the
Gospel Music Industry.” Singing News
Fan Award for Musician of the Year has
been given to Michael, and Kim has
consistently been awarded the Singing
News Fan Award for Female Vocalist
and Favorite Soprano for well over a
decade.
