The 3 Redneck Tenors

Friday, October 21st at 7:30 pm 

The 3 Redneck Tenors are a new breed in the “tenor genre” – their musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists is like Duck Dynasty goes to Carnegie Hall – down home laughs with big city music! It has been said that if Larry the Cable Guy, Il Divo, and Mrs. Doubtfire had a baby, that child would be The 3 Redneck Tenors. Written by opera-veteran Matthew Lord with music arranged by award-winning composer Craig Bohmler, and starring Mr. Lord, Blake Davidson, and Jonathan Fruge, The 3 Redneck Tenors were top finalists on “America’s Got Talent” and have been thrilling audiences since 2006.

These boys have seen it all and make us laugh ’till we double over, reminding us that in life, it’s not just the destination, it’s the journey. Get ready for one side splitting ride as we go on an excursion only the 3 Redneck Tenors could have had… delighting audiences with their vocal prowess and a smorgasbord of songs and music ranging from Gospel, to Country, to Broadway, Pop, and Classical.

Trained at such prestigious institutions as the Julliard School of Music, and having performed in venerable houses worldwide – The Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, Tokyo Opera House, Theater Neue Flora – these boys are the definition of seasoned performers. Throw in stand up comedy and improv, and you have the complete entertainment package!
