November 10, 2018 - The Jimmys - "The Jimmys are one hard act to follow at a blues festival. They are truly a wall of rhythm and blues sound. They've got it all: songs, musicianship and showmanship. Great guys. Great sounds."  The Jimmys have mined pure R&B gold with "Hot Dish". From the opening hit of the Ray Charles influenced "Lose That Woman" to the sultry swagger of "Freight Train" , "Hot Dish" is a winner from top to bottom. Try to not dance when listening to "Funk Schway". It simply can't be done! And the Jimmys are a great live act as well. Look for them on tour soon as they hit the road to support this album of great music. "Hot Dish" indeed!  -Tinsley Ellis, Recording Artist.  8:00pm show at Le Musique Room in St. Michael.  For tickets go to www.goexit205.com  or call the Box office at 612 314 9199

However, he finds himself involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as the dismal Eeyore, Piglet and Rabbit, with his countless relations. Pooh's intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble. When friend Piglet gets roped into Kanga's household and Kanga starts bathing him (with soap!) and forcing down spoonfuls of Strengthening Medicine, Pooh wants to fly to the rescue, but he's had so many snacks he gets stuck in the door. A.A. Milne's wit and special understanding of young people make this one of the most successful plays available.  Click Here or call the Box Office Phone Sales: (952) 474-5951 for tickets.

November 24 thru December 31, 2018 - I'm Listening this Christmas - A musical comedy by Patti J. Hynes McCarthy.  Running the small radio station in his home town of Walnut Lake, Minnesota, is a far cry from Jon Michael's dreams of becoming a big time disc jockey in a top Chicago market, especially managing a group of mismatched, and, shall we say, 'unique' radio announcers.  That, along with taking care of a sick parent, is proving too much for him.  Just as he is about to shut down KMAS, make this Christmas his most depressing ever, a young radio enthusiast appears on the scene, infusing a dose of optimism and Christmas cheer into everyone at the station, and the town!  Laughs, a few tears, some great Christmas music, and a deeper message of what 'success' really means, will delight people of all ages in this musical comedy.  Playing November 24th thru December 31st at Majestic Oaks Golf Club Seasons Dinner Theatre.  Order tickets online at www.majesticoaksgolfclub.com or call 763-755-2140.

Now, at age 81, Barry's voice is still as strong as it was when he was a singing cast member of THE PERRY COMO SHOW for two years as one of The Ray Charles Singers, Perry's backup group. Barry's stories are truly unique and powerful, "living it" with many of the world's most influential people.
