April 11 – 13, 2019 - Songs by the Wrecking Crew - The Wrecking Crew was a moniker coined by famous studio drummer, Hal Blaine. It was a nickname for an incredible group of musicians who played anonymously on hundreds of huge hits in the '60s and '70s as well as countless TV show themes and commercials. These studio musicians wrote the arrangements and played on some of the most successful recordings in all of popular music history. These musicians, some of whom would become huge artists in their own right, like Glen Campbell, Leon Russell and Dr. John…were hired hands who recorded songs everyday, punching the clock so to speak, not knowing these songs would be hits, and ended up being the “back up band” on huge recordings by the Beach Boys, Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Carpenters, Simon and Garfunkel, The Mamas and Papas, The Monkees, Elvis, Frank Sinatra, The Righteous Brothers, Jan and Dean, Neil Diamond and hundreds more. Most people did not know their story until a film about their musical journey entitled The Wrecking Crew was produced and released in 2015 - it is now available on Netflix and DVD. The Fabulous Armadillos will be showcasing some of the Wrecking Crew’s best known songs and TV themes in this fun look back at a much simpler time.  Get tickets at ChanhassenDT.com or call the Box Office at 952-934-1525.

May 3 & 4, 2019 - Moonshadow - An Evening of Cat Stevens by Michael Monroe - Minnesota's own Emmy Award-winning acoustic tunesmith, Michael Monroe, performs an evening of music by the tremendously popular British singer-songwriter. In the '70s, Michael Monroe looked like Cat Stevens, performed Cat tunes and even wanted to be him!  Stevens, whose music remains relevant five decades later said, ”Music can be healing... for what looks like a gigantic divide in this world, I feel I can point a way toward our common humanity again." Monroe shares this viewpoint and feels Cat's tunes are especially timely today.  Cat Stevens “had rare ability to combine the strength, fragility, and sometimes mystery of his highly personal compositions,” said the LA Times.  Michael Monroe has performed his original music for five decades. His hand-crafted Seaton guitars are made of 200 year-old reclaimed wood from the bottom of Lake Superior.  These “works of art,” his rich vocals and crystal/bamboo flutes showcase his signature mellifluous sound. Expect the best of Cat with songs like "Wild World," "Peace Train," "Father & Son," "Hard Headed Woman," "Where Do The Children Play," "Can’t Keep It In" and of course, "Moonshadow."  Be a part of this LIVE CONCERT RECORDING!  Get tickets at ChanhassenDT.com or call the Box Office at 952-934-1525.
