Just a clarification: we printed 100 advance tickets for the 7 pm, which we've sold, but the Bottleneck has room for 450, so if you didn't get tickets in advance that doesn't mean it's sold out!

Advance ticket sales are done as of noon today (Saturday). See you there!

I saw this show tonight and the group absolutely ROCKS! The $5 cost was a tremendous bargain for the quantity and quality of entertainment provided. Absolutely fantastic!
