Vail Laughs

Vail Laughs is based on one simple idea:
 
Clean comedy for a good price.
Entertainment standards have definitely shifted over the years. As the world keeps moving faster, it takes more energy to get our attention in the noise. Unfortunately, much of our entertainment uses shock value and other cheap antics to get it. It’s almost a celebration of being rude and insulting, bringing the audience down right along with the entertainers.
But life is funny enough without having to be vulgar!
Think about this:
 
We drive to the gym so we can walk on a treadmill. We carry these high tech devices in our pockets, the knowledge of all the world at our fingertips and we use them to send each other videos of screaming goats. Or the irony of reaching adulthood and discovering our parents actually had a point about naps.
 
What a strange bunch of creatures we are!
 
Our award winning comedians are as committed to this ideal as we are, bringing you quality entertainment month after month and leaving behind all the vulgarity and cheap antics.  Quite simply, it’s high quality entertainment you can bring your entire family to. The most important decision you have for the evening is whether to leave the kids or the babysitter at home.

 

Paul Green

He’ll jam an improvised jazz solo on the piano or drums and make up a love song on the spot for any girl who wants to feel uncomfortable. He can solve a Rubik’s cube in record time of 3 minutes. He earned a degree in finance to learn how to fund his comedy career. When ordering food, he will randomly break out into song or make sound effects when pulling out his wallet often earning him a free meal or weird looks, either way he considers it a win. He’s yet to get a date using Tinder, but his eternal optimism keeps him swiping right. He’s an introverted, outgoing stand-up comedian who posts cheesy one-liner joke memes on Facebook daily such as this: “I watched a Tony Robbins video on avoiding distractions. I found the video browsing Facebook.” So he’s not only funny, he can be profound!!

Paul welcomes hecklers!   All he asks is that you be loud enough for everybody to hear and that you own your statements and are prepared for the comeback and conversation.  This truly is an intimate evening with one of the most talented comedy artists of our time.  You will be amazed with his humor and quick wit and the finale of the show where he sings a song made up during the course of the show about the show and the audience that helped to make for a great evening of live entertainment.

The Tributaries

present A Tribute to The Eagles

Saturday, November 17 – 7:00 pm

 

 

The Tributaries

This Eagles Tribute features all the hits!

Kicking off with “Take It Easy”, the concert takes you on a musical ride through The Eagles game-changing career! From the frenetic rock of “Life In The Fastlane”, to the rich, dynamic harmonies of “Desperado”, “Tequilla Sunrise” and “Lyin’ Eyes”. You’ll hear Eagles vocals and guitar work done with authenticity and respect… The Eagles Greatest Hits (1971-1975) album was the BEST SELLING ALBUM of the 20th century in the US. This amazing tribute will remind you of the reason why!

  • Walker Foard, Guitar, Keyboard, Vocals: Walker is heavily influenced by acoustic guitar players such as Paul Simon, James Taylor and Steven Stills.  He moved to the Washington, D.C. area after college and played for about 6 years in a band called “Tucson.” After moving to the real Tucson, he became the Creative Director for a group of radio stations.  It’s all about the music!
  • Joe Murphy, Guitar, Keyboard Vocals: Joe is the “farrest outest” member of the group, and the band member with the longest (and most) hair. Joe has been playing in bands back East, and we have yet to stump him on pretty much any musical style from any era (even tunes popular before he was born!) Joe is a walking encylopedia of musical knowledge, triva, and mimicry. One of the band’s favorite sayings during practice is “Focus, Joe!”
  • Mike Serres, Guitar, Vocals, Keys, Cello, Harmonica: Mike has played guitar since he was about twelve and bugged the teenage bass player next door to teach him a few chords. He sings and plays a variety of instruments, but mostly guitars. Mike has played in folk duos (Serres and Dina, Cox & Serres) trios (White Horse), and a variety of other musical configurations. Mike has opened for a variety of major music acts including Chuck Berry, America, and the Beach Boys. Mike loves to play most kinds of music including jazz, country, classical, pop and rhythm and blues, but there’s a special place in his heart for rock and roll. Because Mike loves harmony (in music as well as in life), he’s not apt to play solo, since there’s no one to harmonize with.
  • Fred Coy Bass, Vocals: Fred has been bottom feeding on music since his Jr. High school days in Philadelphia. Despite being one of the skinniest kids in the band, he played the tuba and the upright string bass (not at the same time) through high school. “I’m not a very predictable bass player, I tend to hop around a bit ‘cause I’m always looking for a better note or a better rhythm to fit the music”. Fred often consults his ‘inner tuba’ when approaching a new song and sometimes asks himself: what would Sousa do? In addition to sharing his bass mentality Fred sings the second or third harmony for the band, he’s never quite sure which one.
  • Allan Bartlett, Drums, Vocals: Allan Bartlett was born in Tucson, AZ and got his first Snare Drum at the age of eight. After a few drum lessons, he wanted a complete drum set. Five years later, he finally got his first set! With more lessons and listening to records, Allan managed to learn to keep a beat…most of the time. Allan has been in multiple bands and is in great demand! In addition to “keeping the beat most of the time,” Allan does a mean Don Henley and loves to perform antics to keep the audience entertained!
  • Mindy Ronstadt, Lead Vocals, Tambourine: Mindy was born and raised in Tucson, surrounded by a multitude of very musical family members. She learned how to sing harmonies at a very young age, so she could hang out with the grownups at family parties. Mindy sang in school choirs and musicals, and at age 18 traveled with Up With People. She fell into professional singing at age 22 when one of her many cousins needed a female vocalist for his band. Since then, she’s enjoyed singing and touring with many different musicians, including a brief (but incredibly fun) stint singing backup for her aunt, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris on their Western Wall Tour.
