RIVER FALLS – The River Falls American Legion invites the public to an evening of music and laughter on Saturday, Feb. 19, featuring The Memories – a nationally known duo based out of western Wisconsin.
Tickets, $25, are available at the Legion, 701 N. Main St., and Freeman Drug, 104 S. Main St., River Falls. Doors open at 6 p.m., show is at 7 p.m.
The Memories’ musical roots trace back to their high school days in Boyceville, Wis. In 1972 they were asked to perform at a friend’s wedding, and now 50 years later they continue to entertain audiences with their songs and wit. At their peak, the “Boys from Boyceville” entertained full time, spending more than 200 days a year on the road. They’ve appeared as opening acts for national entertainers including Merle Haggard, Alabama, The Oak Ridge Boys, Ricky Nelson, Ray Price and Barbara Mandrell. While today they only appear at a select number of events annually, the music and laughter they offer audiences hasn’t diminished.
“We’re excited to be able to offer this local entertainment opportunity to the surrounding community,” said Missy Hildebrandt, Commander of River Falls Legion Post 121. “We’re looking forward to a full house, and urge people to get their tickets early as seating is limited.”
