Default Same Shows Year After Year.

I'm sorry to to say anything negative, but why do we get the same shows year after year? Kansas, Lords of 52nd street, Hotel California, Lee greenwood, The Righteous Brothers, The Drifters.....that's a pretty long list of past shows here. Is this all that is available?

I'd be interested in suggestions as to what kind of acts people would like to see, either at The Savanna Center or The Sharon. Also, let's be reasonable, Billy Joel, Elton John or Bruce Springsteen are just a ways out of the budget.

I'll throw out a few:

Jackson Browne
Jethro Tull
Boz Scaggs
Seals and Crofts
Frankie Vali

Your Turn.

I would love to see Jackson Brown solo again
Some others as solo acts, and I think the Sharron would be great for, for me personaly would be, in no special order;
Ryan Adams
Amos Lee
Luka Bloom
Jack Johnson
Colin Hay
Mark Knopfler
Patty Griffin
There are loads more, and I could go on..........

Why? Prolly cause their tix are money makers?

How many times have the Lords of 52nd Street appeared here? Have you been to one of their concerts? Maybe you are not a fan of B.J. music?

Jimmy Clanton

Dion

I would fight for front row seats at any of these!

Too bad Robin Williams has also passed. He could have done the intros for Lawrence Welk...
