MONROE CROSSING

Saturday, March 10 – 7:00 pm

 

Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” Monroe Crossing dazzles audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Their airtight harmonies, razor sharp arrangements, and on-stage rapport make them audience favorites across the United States and Canada.Based in Minnesota, the group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals, frequently for non-bluegrass audiences — and people often comment that they’d never really liked bluegrass music until they attended a Monroe Crossing concert!

Monroe Crossing is made up of five very distinct personalities with differing musical backgrounds and tastes, combining for a very unique ensemble sound. They are Derek Johnson: guitar, lead & harmony vocals; Lisa Fuglie: fiddle, mandolin, lead & harmony vocals; Matt Thompson: mandolin, fiddle, baritone vocals; Mark Anderson: bass & bass vocals; and David Robinson: banjo. Their paths crossed through the music of Bill Monroe so they like to say they had a “Monroe Crossing.”

Among their many honors, Monroe Crossing was selected to showcase at the 2007 International Bluegrass Music Association Convention and they were inducted into the Minnesota Music Hall of Fame in 2007. The only bluegrass band ever nominated as “Artist of the Year” by the Minnesota Music Academy (MMA), Monroe Crossing won the 2003 MMA “Bluegrass Album of the Year” award. They have twice been selected to showcase at the annual “World of Bluegrass” convention hosted by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and they have appeared twice at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 2016, Monroe Crossing had the honor of being the first Minnesota bluegrass band to ever perform in South Korea.

Monroe Crossing has recorded 15 CDs and one DVD to date. Whether playing traditional bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, original bluegrass, or even songs outside the bluegrass genre, Monroe Crossing is one of the most active and most entertaining acts on the bluegrass scene today!

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.

 

Mike Enders is one of the fastest rising comics on the scene today. With an explosive delivery and new age point of view, Mike continues to win the hearts of audiences with an honest look at who he is and how he fits in today’s world.

Mike moved to the Valley after racking up numerous parking tickets and offending numerous bartenders in the city of Chicago. He quickly made a name for himself, placing as a finalist in Arizona’s Funniest Comedian. This afforded him opportunities to work in Chicago, New York, and at The Comedy Store in LA. He has had the privilege of working with talented comedians such as Gilbert Gottfried, Mark Normand, and Hannibal Buress.

Mike co-hosts a weekly podcast with fellow comedian Charles Engle. Together, they break down a wide variety of topics pertaining to the modern dating world.

Gene Moore has a last name with a built in promise: “GENE LEAVES YOU WANTING ‘MOORE’!”

Gene’s performance style is fast paced, high spirited, and high energy. He defines himself as a front row friendly comedian that can entertain and perform in front of diverse audiences. His humor is observational, hopeful and based on his life experiences. He will keep you on the edge of your seat soaked in laughter.
